Synopsis

 

Did you just see a flash of lightning across the sky on a clear sunny day? It’s not from Mother Nature. It is most likely from Mason Grand, swoon-worthy demigod, one of Zeus’s descendants.

Skylar Rome is supposed to be having the best summer ever before she heads off to college. Little did she know, her whole life was about to change while visiting her cousin. Nearly drowning at the beach due to unknown forces, one of the Grand brothers she’d just met, Mason, saves her life. Cool, collected, mysterious, and dangerously good-looking, Skylar is drawn to him from the start. Though she knows he is the type of guy good girls stayed away from, it seems he is always saving her life, and the attraction was inevitable.

Upon meeting the brothers, strange things begin to happen. When she accidentally kills one of the brothers, it throws her life into turmoil, as they search to find the answers. Implausibly, she gets caught up in a world of the decedents of ancient gods, all who have super powers. Not only is her discovery difficult to accept, evil beings are after her. Running out of time and running for her life, she must unravel a mystery. What do they want from her? Forced into a battle set into motion long before she was born, will she find the answers, or will she die trying?

Review

Review by Jessica

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*

Skylar is just a normal girl. Sure, her father left when she was a kid, but that’s not so uncommon. Then Skylar meets a cute boy- also not uncommon… Except that this particular cute boy happens to shoot lightning out of his hands, and it turns out her missing father might just be the farthest thing from normal you can get.
I was very excited to read this book. I’ve actually been eyeing it for a while, and let me tell you, I was not disappointed. Skylar is an awesome heroine. She is just the right amount of soft femininity and strength. I loved that this story was romantic, but also had a lot of action. Skylar may be swooning over Mason, but she can still put her self-defense classes to good use and kick some butt. Mason is wonderfully broody, and I enjoyed watching him attempt to hide his feelings from Sky. He was frustrating at times of course, but mostly it was adorable. The plot moves along at a great pace and kept me hooked. I read almost the whole thing in one sitting and didn’t even realize it. I was definitely sucked in! Most of the characters are great. Kayla did annoy me at times, but I have no complaints about anyone else. My only other issue would be that it did get a little cheesy at times, but that’s just my personal preference. I don’t want to give too much away, but I loved the whole story of the demi-gods and how they came to be. I thought it was a new take on it, and I cannot wait to delve into that even more. Oh, and HOLY CLIFFHANGER! I love a good cliffhanger, and this one was a doozy! I will definitely be continuing to read the series and I would recommend it. It’s a great read. 4 books.
