This book was provided by the author, in exchange for my honest opinion. It’s available for purchase now.
First of all, I was excited to read a book with a unique twist on Greek mythology. For some reason, most mythology I’ve read this year has been Nordic so it was enjoyable to switch it up. Let me tell you, this is the most creative take on a mythos that I’ve read in a very long time.
Sometimes I find it difficult reading a main character who has no memories because I have a hard time finding that “window” into the world that a main character normally provides. However, it worked really well in this book. Because James didn’t remember much at all, the reader came by details of the world and story line naturally, without the dreaded “info dump”.
It was action-packed and a lot of fun. I don’t want to give away any of James’ secrets, but I didn’t expect many of them. This is an entertaining, unique read, and highly enjoyable.
