I really hate to be a downer but this book really missed a few points for me. Claire Luana isn’t new to me and I have enjoyed a few of her other books so I was hopeful when my eye caught the beautiful cover. If only the book had more of that, well beauty for lack of a better word. I enjoyed the parts where Greek mythology came into play and loved that the characters centered on that concept were strong and reminiscent. However the twist for me just didn’t stick. Murderous teens that get thwarted with happenstance just fell short. I felt as if maybe the struggle came with trying to steer this towards a young adult reading audience. It to me should be new adult and I feel if the pressure to make this a ‘teen’ book was removed the characters could have that added development that would take the book home for me. Otherwise the writing was strong when it came to descriptive world building and vivid scenes to make you feel as if you are right there with the characters. This is one thing I have always loved about Claire Luana’s writing so I was happy to see it still strong. While this one wasn’t for me I will for sure be back to see what will come next from her!
