This would have been one of those situations for me, because I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed the book.
With little information about her father and no contact Skylar, has been raised by her mother following the departure of her father very early on in her life. Her mother refuses to divulge any information about him. Drawing her own conclusions Skylar refuses to give his memory any place in her life.
Summer break draws close and her mum sends her off to spend the holidays with her aunt and when she discovers that she can join her cousin Kayla and help out at the diner, she gets stuck in.
Skylar is not what or who, even she thinks she is but there are customers at the diner who are convinced that they have an idea that Skylar, like them is more than human, that she is a descendent of the Gods.
Fellow descendants, the gorgeous Mason, Nick, Everett and Remus have their interests pricked, not only by the pretty newcomer but by the attention she has attracted from the Hades Vultures.
But she is something more than even they had anticipated and they find this out all too soon and to the detriment of one of their group. Skylar tries to eliminate the risk that she poses to the others by isolating herself but Mason has other ideas and having developed feelings for her he stands his ground. The others are oblivious and that is just the way he wants it to be and with Kayla and Nick being drawn to one an another, Mason has his hands full keeping not only his brothers but the only human in the group safe.
Travelling to another dimension is probably never been high on my list of priorities but I was enthralled when this section arose in the book, it was superbly constructed and descriptive, and gave me the insight that I needed to be able to completely submerge myself in the remainder of the book.
Everett, Mason and Nick take the girls – Skylar, Kayla and Amanda with then as they travel to Olympus on a journey that they hope will be able to finally give them an idea as to Skylar’s true being. But when the answer is told, Mason has no choice but to insist that it remains a closely guarded secret. Skylar has enemies that the others would barely be able to fathom and her powers are being sought to enable a descendant of Alena to eliminate the demi gods that stand in her way.
There were additional characters that put in an appearance later in the book that I think may be pivotal in the follow up novels, and will I read them yes well I think I may just have been converted – to this series anyway .
What can i say about this book other than i couldn't put it down. I have a new love for Greek mythology. Before i read i wasn't really sure about the whole genre but now it has got me wanting more. Again Mary has brought us a fantastic story, great character development and ongoing inner turmoil for themselves.
I read this book in one sitting i just couldn't put it down. Cant wait to see what else happens with this series. I WANT MORE !! haha
I think many readers who love Mary Ting's Crossroads Saga were curious to see, if they will love From Gods us much, because the expectations were high. I am no different, I was little afraid, if Fro Gods would be as good. It was was!
First of all, let me say, that I love Greek mythology and I tend to be quite critical on fantasy books based on Greek mythology. But Mary Ting delivered again! Not only that, but she created an interesting and well-written world which kept surprising me.
Skylar is going to visit her cousin before attending a freshman year in the college. As usually, she visits her cousin and best friend Kayla and aunt Kelly. This summer is turning to be different from others.
On her way driving to her cousin, Skylar is stopped by police. At least, it seems to be the police. When Skylar starts working at the diner her aunt owns, the hot policeman shows up in the diner. The only weird thing is, that he is not a police and he claims, they have never met before. Skylar is disappointed, but the faith has other plans for both of them.
After Mason saves her life on the beach and Skylar sees creatures she never knew existed, the story takes a turn. Mason tells her the truth about who he and his brothers are. The only mystery remaining is, who is Skylar? Why does she see the creatures? Why is there electricity between them? Who are her parents?
I have to admit, that I had to raise my eyebrow more than once while reading, especially on the first part of it, being sceptical and thinking how does she author explains this or that. But the story fells to its place and makes sense the longer in you come to the story. It is a fresh view on the descendants of the Greek gods and I loved it!
Skylar is quite a cautious and conservative young woman in my opinion. She sensed danger and had a strong intuition towards people causing her harm. I liked that she was not a right out kick-ass heroine and loved, that she was a strong and brave young woman.
My favorite supportive characters in the book are Nick and Kayla. I loved the dynamics between them.
I highly recommend From Gods by Mary Ting. Read it! It's worth of your time for sure!
