Synopsis: 

Chrys has been hidden from all the words, within the depths of Hells because of her father, Hades’ paranoia. And he has all the right reseasons to be afraid – not only the fact that his brothers are morally debatable, but his only daughter had a dichotomous power (the power of life and death) that can change the order of world and also the order of Olympians. Hence, Chrys has remained in the Palace of Hades for thousand years. That is until she decides to run away to the human world to experience teenage life with bee only friends Huntley, a human and Agenor, the demigod son of Poseidon. There is no way trouble can follow her if she take a vacation, right?

Review: 

Well there is no doubt that this is a typical teenage melodramatic book. The plot line is based on Greek Mythology and personally, that is the only thing that I liked about the book. As expected from a book based on the Olympians, there is plenty of godly drama that made up for being an entertainment value for the book. 

I found the characters to be childish and annoying and the narrative style of using multiple tones of personal narration didn’t really help in making the book any more appealing. Even the cover image seems to follow the trend of the books from the Selection series. While the title is quite appropriate, the image is more of gothic kind which I found distateful. 

My opinion: Might be a fun series for those who are okay with teenage drama. Not a bad book; it’s just something that I didn’t like very much. 

My rating: 2.5 out of 5
