Contemporary, Romance, Young Adult
Helen is being plagued with visions of destruction especially with the gods’ thirst for war that already has a body count. She has to find a way to imprison them again or there will be the risk of unleashing immeasurable chaos.
Helen’s powers are increasing and it is causing the distance between her and her mortal friends to increase too. They are uncertain whether to fear her or revere her and now the once-solid group is divided.
Making matters worse the Oracle reveals that a dangerous Tyrant is lucking among them. All fingers are now pointing to Orion. Helen is unsure whether she loves Lucas or Orion and she must make a terrifying decision because an all-out war is coming to her shores.
This is a wonderful conclusion to this trilogy. Readers will hate to see it end but it is a very satisfying ending to a trilogy of books that prove to be very original. The characters are interesting as they grow and deal with all the obstacles that are thrown at them. Helen starts the trilogy out as unsure of herself and by the end she finds out just what she is capable of. She also learns just who she can truly trust and depend on. This is a trilogy that has proven to be one to put on the keeper shelf because this is one that readers will want to read again and again. This trilogy also shows this is an author to definitely watch. The trilogy takes the myths of Greek mythology turns them around and makes it very unique. While the books have a number of pages the trilogy proves to be a fast read as readers will find it very hard to put down and won’t want to leave this world until the very last page of the last book. The ending does not disappoint in the least.
I give this one 5 red roses
