Two things made me need to read this series: 1. Greek Mythology, 2. Kendare Blake. I couldn’t even imagine what kind of story Kendare Blake could have in store for me. After Anna Dressed in Blood, I was ready for something creeptastically awesome. I was not disappointed. I mean, did you read that synopsis? It just screams for me to read more. I like to occasionally read books that are creepy. Athena has feathers growing from the inside out! Sometimes I just wonder how Kendare Blake thinks up these things, but I can honestly say I wouldn’t want to look into her mind out of fear of what else might be in there.
The gods are corrupted and dying in all kinds of nasty, unimaginable ways. And to keep themselves alive they are teaming up with each other and some of them are even EATING each other. That is disgusting! While there is a bit of talk of Zeus, we’re not really sure what it going on with him, if he’s even alive.
Then there are the reincarnations of memorable characters and heroes from the Greek mythology. Such as Cassandra, who has all kind of visions of the future, but no idea why because she doesn’t remember who she is. She can see the gods dying sometimes and sees some pretty horrible things happen. I’m honestly surprised she doesn’t lose it.
When I started reading this book, I just got sucked into Blake’s writing, again. I don’t know how she does it to me, but she does. I am completely looking forward to what happens next because I can’t predict anything with these books. The opposite always seems to happen. Which is good because I’m rarely surprise while reading anymore. If you’re wondering about this series, you should definitely check it out because this book was great. Especially if you like mythology, you don’t want to miss it!
