I wouldn't go as far as to call this a romance novel or a mythology read.... I'd go as far as to call it the dark romance of an under aged teen that w..Show More »as sexually frustrated, added into the mix of a half bad Percy Jackson copy.
I was excited to read a mythology fantasy and thought I could put the romance part aside cause romance isn't weird, this however was the most uncomfortable 'romance' I have ever seen, it was extremely one sided and controlling "yay look it's just like real life, except it's more like porn than real life."
Still if this author decides to do mythology minus the scary romance I do believe I would read it, cause the book was well informed I feel.... But the romance was a turn off.

This is the culmination of the trilogy and love story for Thanatos and Therese.They still have some challenges to face and quests to complete to make things right. This book picks up immediately after the second one finished. Each new quest leads to another and at some point you might think "when will it end?" but if you really think about it that is the way mythology is as well. There is always a twist or another bargain to be made.
I listened to the audiobook and once again love the narrator, Debbie Andreen. She does a fabulous job of bringing the emotions out of the characters and makes the story even more enjoyable. I loved her pace and that each character has a very distinct voice that is easy to differentiate. I have very happy ears and I hope she sticks around for the future books!
I love all the side stories and am thrilled that Ms Pohler decided to make it a saga instead of ending things with a trilogy. There is so much more story to tell and all those secondary characters like Jen, Pete and Hypnos who deserve HEA as well.
I do wonder that the book gets too involved for YA fans but I could be wrong. It might just be the something different they are always looking for! Can't wait to read what happens next.
