A really great start to a series that I definitely see myself loving as it progresses! I haven't read any other books by Kendare Blake but I know many people who love her writing style..and I gotta say I really enjoyed it too!
As most of you may know, I seriously LOVE LOVE mythology books..so when I heard about this book I knew that I had to pick it up! What I liked about this book was that it was very original..I haven't heard of any mythology books where the gods are dying/fighting for their lives, which I thought was very interesting to read about. I also really liked how Kendare Blake added in Cassandra and other characters from the Trojan war. I thought that really was a great twist to add in to this book.
Another aspect of this book that I really liked was the characters! I definitely thought that they were relatable and I could see myself being friends with them in real life. I thought it was interesting to see the gods in sort of a humbled state-especially since they are very limited in their powers and have to rely on others for help. It was different to see them in this state and I really liked seeing them limited in their powers.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book! After the cliffhanger ending, I seriously can't wait for the next book! If you are a mythology fan, definitely definitely check this book out! You won't regret it!
