Project Pandora is a mystery, suspense novel with romance mixed in. It has violence and action throughout and is set-up to leave you wanting more. Project Pandora is just the beginning.
I would recommend reading a sample of this book before deciding if it is for you.
Tyler Bennett has trust issues. He is a foster child who moved around a lot. Now he is beginning to lose himself. He can't remember how he got his injuries or what he did the night before. He is questioning himself never mind others.
Shannon has a thing for Tyler but could they be closer than they realise already? They are drawn to each other but learning their secrets could get them both killed. Pandora's box should never be opened. Not even to take a little peek. If you haven't guessed Project Pandora contains Greek mythology.
This book is written as a story but also contains case notes. It's dark, especially for a teen read. For the right audience, this is going to knock your socks off, however, unfortunately, this book wasn't for me.
I recieved an ARC of this book in exchange for an fair review. Happy reading everyone :)

I will be the first to admit that I requested this book on NetGalley because of its cover. (It’s absolutely stunning.) I didn’t know what I was getting into, and I think it works better to go into this book as blind as possible. The action kicks off from the very first page; wasting no time taking our characters into this mysterious and deadly world. It’s crazy as all heck and will surely throw readers, but as you continue reading and the mystery is slowly revealed, it becomes hard to put down.
I liked the idea of teenage assassins who were a part of a mysterious program, never truly aware of who or what they were. It’s an intriguing premise, one that isn’t easy to pull off, as it’s important to maintain the same level of suspense throughout, and yet, Aden Polydoros managed to do just that.
The varying points of view help to keep the book exciting, as we shift between these various characters and truly dive into their desires, their faults, and their strengths. However, the most interesting character was easily Hades who had the best arc throughout the story, compared to someone like Elizabeth, who admittedly had the weakest storyline of the bunch.
That doesn’t mean the book is without its flaws, though. As strong as the book is, it still manages to lose steam near the end. Some things felt repetitive and the action was mainly “off screen,” whereas the author had done such a great job of highlighting the action throughout the rest of the book. It’s because of this that I had to give the book four stars as opposed to five stars. The ending just fell flat, which was unfortunate. I do still plan to read the rest of the series, though.
One final note: I did like the use of the Greek codenames, however, it did seem weird to use Apollo and Artemis as the code names for a duo in the book given there’s a romantic aspect to the characters in this story.
Although this book is heavy on action, all the characters are captivating and well-developed - but by far, my favorite is Hades. He's cunning, dangerous, and untrustworthy, but with such a tragic backstory, I dare you not to like him. He made the book for me. I've read the author is working on a novella detailing Hades's past - can't wait to get my hands on that one.
Told from four POVs, I'd highly recommend this YA sci-fi/thriller to older teens and fans of espionage, conspiracy theories, and psychological thrillers. Project Pandora knocked it out of the park.
Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for the digital ARC.
As Tyler begins regaining memories and control from the voice giving him order he realizes that he’s not the only one being used by Project Pandora. Tyler finds that he’s going to have to learn to trust others within the group if there will be any hope of them surviving the Project.
Project Pandora is the first book in the Olympus Experiments by Aden Polydoros. The series begins following four young adults with the chapters changing the point of view between them as their stories begin to unfold and find out how they are involved in the project. The story is a bit of suspense mixed with some romance with the relationships forming between the characters.
I did start off this one finding it a bit confusing in the beginning trying to remember which characters was which as each of them also have a Greek code name used when they are under the influence of the project. Then there is also parts between chapters where the “subjects” in the project are also referred to as a number so that also added in trying to keep track of who was being referred to at which point.
The story however was a fun one to follow as it built throughout the book. The opening pages throws the reader right into an assassination and builds the intensity of what and where could this go from here. I did find myself at the end with that thought too of that’s it….where’s this going to go from here on out as it is obvious there’s much more for the author to tell in any following installments.
After reading this installment to the series I decided on giving it 3.5 stars but I have a feeling that now that I am more familiar with the characters and how the story works the ratings will probably go up from here.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
