Publisher's Summary

Petra Ambrosi is a goddess with empathic abilities, though she is emotionless herself. She is overconfident and stubborn until she is sent down to Earth to live with mortals. Everything she believed she knew about the world turns upside down when she meets a young woman who unleashes emotions that have remained dormant in her for a century.

Petra must now cope with a new vulnerability, as well as learn the hard way that the path to true love isn’t always easy. She is challenged at every turn as she discovers her true self and feelings toward a mortal girl.

Amazing

Loved! I can't wait for the next one! I love the Greek God mythology. I finished this book too fast!

Don’t do it!

This book was absolutely infuriating. I have never read something so simplistic and yet, at the same time, so difficult to understand.

It seemed as though there were sentences missing or parts left out. It was like it was poorly translated from another language and thereby stripped of comprehensible nuance. I was so confused throughout the entire book and annoyed at the lack of substance and depth of the characters.

There were descriptions that were beautiful and poetic, but they were attached to things that lacked any understandable framework. It also has terrible continuity issues, and goes from moments of great epiphany to nonchalance so quickly that you’ll get whiplash.

It felt like an endless steam of thought from the mind of an inexperienced teenager. There was no believability and it was filled with factual inaccuracies. And I don’t mean the Greek God aspect, I mean the complete lack of understanding about day to day life.

It was forced, lazy, trivial, contrary and exasperating. And worst of all, there is zero resolution of any situation that arose.

Angela Dawe was superb as usual, but she didn’t have much to work with. I honestly don’t even know how they got her to narrate this.

Sorry if this review is harsh but I was so irritated when I finished that I just had to be brutally honest. Skip this one.
