Product Description

About the Author

Author Mary Ting resides in Southern California with her husband and two children. She enjoys oil painting and making jewelry. Writing her first novel, Crossroads Saga, happened by chance. It was a way to grieve the death of her beloved grandmother, and inspired by a dream she once had as a young girl. When she started reading new adult novels, she fell in love with the genre. It was the reason she had to write one-Something Great. Why the pen name, M Clarke? She tours with Magic Johnson Foundation to promote literacy and her children's chapter book-No Bullies Allowed.

Well this book was great, it was totally different. I love paranormal stories and this book about Gods and Demi Gods is no exception. Skylar has lived a normal existence apart from her father leaving when she was 8 but that's about to change. When she goes to spend 3 weeks with her cousin Kayla, they change her life and perception of the world around her. The girls are looking forward to a great summer but when they meet the Grand brothers things change for better and worse. Skylar knows their different but she could never imagine how and why she feels so connected to Mason Grand.
I loved this story so far and I'm looking forward to the next books. Great story, plot, and writing. The characters are great, I loved Mason and Nick they're lovely, Skylar is a great character, brave and loving even with everything imploding around her. You get enough back story to understand how and where each character is at that point. Lots of angst, twists and turns. The romance is there but not over the top. Mason and Skylar's relationship progresses and it's nice to see. I can't wait to see what happens next. Overall a really different and great read. would recommend.

Please note there are slight spoilers in my review

I must admit this book was hard to stick with, but I kept thinking give it more time. However, even up to chapter ten I was considering giving up.
At the start it just seemed very slow starting and having no direction, as though the author was just writing anything until they got to the more action parts of the book.
I found some conversations just went on and on and talking about things that were completely irrelevant.
Parts of the book were very poorly written and there seemed to be far too much of so-and-so said, then so-and-so said, and then some responses to conversations made no sense what-so-ever!
The parts of the book where one character was texting another seemed to go on forever and was just dragged out to long. Example :
miss you
miss you too
bye
bye
(and that is a short example)

Some things were also very unbelievable. In one scene Skylar goes to buy everyone beer and when she gets asked for ID her thought is : "I forgot i couldn't buy beer because i had never bought one before"
Really? Come on. She randomly forgot she was 18. It would have been more believable if she has said she forgot her fake ID or something.
In another scene Mason saves Skylar from one of his brothers, asks her to stay in his bed with her so he can protect her and then wakes up in the morning and has no idea why she was there
Fair enough he was drugged but when she says about his brother he remembers instantly. (not something you would forget in a hurry)
The story didn't really hold my attention at all, the ending is left on a big cliff hanger but even that isn't making me consider reading the next book

Two of of five stars for this one!

My review:

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.

Plot:

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!

Great book, lots of detail and action packed with the emotions of the characters flying everywhere or being kept so tight you are just waiting for them to explode. I also think the Oracle knows a lot more than she is telling and so does mum. Well written and interesting twists and turns, great attention to detail, great storyteller. Looking forward to the next book

Great book, I didn't even mind what I like to call "that stupid cliff-hanger" ending that I totally dislike, but I'm giving this book 5 stars because it makes you fall in love with every character right from the start. Great good guys, great bad guys, great writing, it flows smoothly. Already bought the next book, can't wait to start reading it! WTG Mary Ting!
