When her mother is taken from her in a terrible accident, Alexis finds herself facing some previously unknown truths. Her best friend, Keats, is her only confidante when she is faced with an apparent stalker who claims that Alexis’ entire life is built around a lie. Alexis is suddenly thrown into a whirlwind world of danger and secret agendas, of demigods and deities.
When a brutal, self-righteous god decides that Alexis is his best hope for retrieving an ancient artifact, she finds herself on the self-discovery journey of a lifetime - tracking a killer and a kidnapper - and facing conniving and dangerous foes along the way.
She will have to come to grips with who she truly is and just what she might be capable of if she is to survive long enough to save the one person in the world for whom she cares most.
Ancient Greek mythology comes to life in this unique coming-of-age tale that spans the globe and the heart of a girl who only wants to be normal. But, just what is normal in a world like this?
I couldn't decide weather to rate this book with four or five stars, but when the child in me (or was it the fantasy lover) screamed: "Five!!" I had no more doubts.
Alexis is young girl that you'll meet here. She was always special cause she could do most of the things better than others. By her side always was Keats who even though haven't been as good as she was, he was the one who could keep up with her. That made them great friends. After she found out that all those things weren't just the coincidence she was about to find the truth about her. Unfortunately she finds the truth on hard way after losing a lot. Once Keats is in trouble she finds that when friends are in trouble there is no thing she won't do to help him. Alexis is the character that I couldn't help but love. She reminds me of those heroines you've seen in books you've read as a child (mostly). She is strong, determinate but also emotional, not pathetic though. All this story and its connection with Greek mythology was so good. The author made a perfect combination. I was so surprised when I figured that everything fits. I haven't read anything similar so I really enjoyed. Also some things were so unexpected for me and that rarely occurs.
I'd maybe change some things in this book, but as I haven't read some good fantasy book recently I won't talk about that. I'd firstly change the cover, cause it looks scary to me. I also want to say that I really like those two short stories in this edition. After reading this I have so many questions to ask and I'll do my research for sure. Mostly I'm curious about second book in this series.
