Received from Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for honest review.


So... when I started reading it, I almost gave up after first chapter. Mixing mythologies is something I really don't like and usually recipe for disaster. However... in this book, it strangely work. It ended up to be really good book.

So Norse and Greek Gods use to work together, and by work I mean argue. :) Because they were to busy with themselves, Fey were able to concur Earth. People, were exiled to the floating island of Olympus, made by Hephaestus. 

Now, Zak Walker, a fringe rat from the Island and Seneca Rose, Seelie Princess, last of her bloodline, will work together to restore old Gods and win against Unseelie Court, that has taken over everything. 

Zak lives with his younger sister Alice, that is a bit special. She sees thing no other can and stopped talking because of it. Father is a drunk and mother left them when Zak was 10. He lives on outskirts and works odd jobs. He is really interesting character, with street smart, bravery and endless love for his sister. So, when Alice gets kidnapped, he will do whatever it take to get her back. Seneca is really fun and brave in her own way. I really liked their friendship and funny banter.

Only thing I don't like... Abby. I just don't like that romance.

Really fun and action packed book.


Happy reading,


Anie
