Do you ever read a book, a book that is out of your normal read, that just devours you? This was one for me. Though, to be upfront, I am a sucker for the Greek Gods. I spent a good part of my (brief) college education on them. There is just something about them; their stories, the passion, the revenge, the magic that surrounds them, really everything fascinates me. And it happens that Apollo is one of my favorites.
From The Back Of The Book-
“For the fans of the Oracle of Delphi series… and for those who aren’t….
Born into one of the wealthiest families in Ireland, Siobhan Law has status, privilege and a secret: The Greek gods of Olympus and their kingdom in the clouds are real, and her family acts as one of their agents on Earth.
When the beautiful immortal celeste Liam Argyros shows up claiming to have come to Earth to deal in the affairs of the divine, Siobhan finds herself unable to resist his charms. New to the game of passion and seduction, she quickly ends up in over her head, sinking deeper with every attempt Liam makes to win her over.
But Liam’s divine mission is far more complex than she ever imagined and nothing is truly as it seems. Because Liam has a secret of his own: He is Apollo, Olympian god of the Sun, and his mission will never be complete until he has claimed Siobhan’s heart forever.”
I have not read the Oracle of Delphi series (although now that I have read this one, they will be on my must read list), but that did not interfere with this story line. It stands completely apart. This is one of those rare books, that I am so happy is the start of a series. Once the book was over, I was not ready. The story (while leaves you on a cliff hanger, not dangling over a cliff barely holding on type of cliff hanger) wraps up quite nicely. But I was not ready to be done with the characters. Her portrayal of Apollo is spot on and Siobhan is a girl that you just want to sit down with for a while. Please come out with book 2 very soon!!!
A little warning, this book not for the weak of heart and certainly only for those over 18. Proceed with caution.
