Summary from Goodreads: Kasey Reese ran from a life of responsibility to study abroad in Deia, Spain. She hoped for an adventure, but what unfolded in Spain was beyond the imaginable. In that remote little village she met the love of her life, Dion - a twenty-year-old immortal saint.
Kasey and Dion return to America only to realize their love is challenged by their opposite virtues and Kasey’s dysfunctional family.
Unique and action-packed, in this book Kasey learns that Pandora is her immortal grandmother. Determined to find her and to uncover many truths, Kasey sets out with Dion on a deadly journey. But answers come with a great cost - a three thousand year old prophecy, a feud of the gods and death.
The Good: Constant action, great mythological creatures, believable world building, and something different.
The Issue: Maybe it's just me, but I'm still having a hard time believing Kasey's undying love for Dion. I felt more of a relationship (good and bad) between Kasey and Teal. Perhaps I'm biased, but I hope what I'm seeing will play into Kasey's decision in Book Three.
The Rating: 5 conch! YA fans of mythology and love stories definitely need to check this one out. It's a "read in one sitting" type of book for me!
I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
