Hope used to believe in science and facts; until she landed on Mount Olympus and discovered that magic and myths were very much real.
After being crowned the Gods’ heroine, she must now become their emissary. For centuries, the Gods have been isolated from the human world, which threatens their immortality.
Hope becomes their best chance at eternal survival and she’s sent off on a quest to find the Fountain of Youth.
If she fails, she loses everything…but winning may very well mean the same.
I really loved the first book, I really enjoy books that have tests or challenges. But i do find the next books in the series where they do not follow the same pattern some time have trouble keeping my interest.
Luckily this book had enough going for it that I managed to finish it.I did take me a while, I kept having to leave it and came back. It didn’t really feel like much happened. The last book had a lot of action, mystery and was jam packed of things to keep the reader interested. This one was a lot flatter. It really felt mostly like discussions and Hope just doing lots of thinking about things. There was a lot to like about the book but it was quite slow.
One of the resons I loved the first book was the mythology, there was lots of gods and goddesses and other creatures. But with this one, I felt the new ones that were introduced were a little confusing. I found myself getting lost in all the names.
I am looking forward to reading the third book in the series and hopefully it will have a little more oomph than the second one.
