I suggest you listen to this when you can really sit and listen. Some of it at the beginning can get confusing but it does all come together nicely. I really enjoyed learning so much about music. The author did a really good job developing the characters. The narrator did a great job. The story was very enjoyable. I highly recommend this book

I am a huge fan of Greek Mythology and Lizzy Ford. This story pick up where Omega ended so I would highly suggest reading Omega before reading Theta. This is a fast paced and at times intense read. The narrator did an amazing job with the voices and pace of the read. All of the characters are well developed and add to the story. If you're looking for a book that can take you into the world of Greek Mythology and on a great adventure then this is the book for you. I highly recommend this book

This story is full of mystery....where did Sam go?? Why?....I know but you need to listen to this book to get the answer. The narrator did an awesome job of bringing the characters to life. This is sweet mild read but that does not take away from the intensity of the story.

I was never meant to have a happily ever after. It was a fate I accepted a long time ago. Before he came for me, taking away who I am, I needed to escape. Just for one night. One man turned my entire world upside down. I should have walked away, but something about him wouldn't let me. Now I'm lying to him. He's going to find out the truth, or my life will catch up to me. Either way, I lose him. People have always told me love is amazing and powerful. They're wrong. It makes you weak, exposing your vulnerabilities, making you easy prey. Love is heinous.
