What a beautiful disaster! I was listening to this in audio for those moment when I can't read an actual book. The problem was that it was so super fantastic I found myself hypnotically listening to this even when I was no longer doing other tasks. It was really hard to turn this off and pick up my other book. So basically, this was finished really fast. I couldn't stop myself. This was nothing and yet everything I thought it would be.
It seems that Greek Mythology is making a quick rise in the world of books right now. This book however seemed to take the old myths that are hard to attach to reality and make a completely believable world. My heart ached for the characters as fate made all the twists and turns in their lives. They could do none but repeat the same cycle. Well, at least as far as this book goes. Dare I hope that the next book will hold some sort of happy ending for this tragic family? The emotion in this book is very stirring. You won't be able to help falling in love with each character.
I most definitely recommend this book for those who loved Percy Jackson but want a bit more of a grown up approach.
