Convince us to read the book: This is a really cool book. The characters are intriguing, there are a few plot twists thrown in, and it blends Greek mythology into the modern world.
Compelling Aspect of the Book: I really like the characters in this book, but more the minor ones than the protagonist.
Did you finish: Yes
Were you disappointed with the book at all: Yes
Comments: ***Spoiler Alert*** There was one thing that bugged me about this book. At the end, it had the protagonist and her love interest think that they were related so that they couldn't be together, and that really bugs me when authors do that.
Cover: The cover for this book is dark and dramatic, which is what I think the publisher was going for.
