Great story, got hooked right away, but some of the details... ouch!
on 29 May 2014
I started out reading the series when I found the first book included in a different collection and had to buy the others immediately. I finished all three in less than 2 days, so that tells you how much I liked the story. Although Adisia's almost paranoid jealousy could get on one's nerves, I thought that the protagonists were pretty well constructed (especially when comparing them to quite a few main characters from other romance novels) and some of the minor characters and their sometimes delightfully cheesy lines had me laughing out loud.
Since I love anything even remotely connected to mythology of any kind, I was sucked into the world of the immortals at once. Of course, one shouldn't expect a too faithful reproduction of Greek mythology, but where would be the fun in that. The storyline was fairly tight, so I was never bored or felt like it dragged along; however, on this note I have to say that some of the scenes between Devin and Adisia seemed unbelievably repetitious, so much so that they could have been copy-pasted which made them a bit redundant.
One absolute no-no for me were the many typos and the blatant grammatical errors. Finding and trying to ignore a mistake on every second page seriously impacts my enjoyment of an otherwise pretty good book (is it really so hard to differentiate between the adverb 'jealously' and the noun 'jealousy'?). I know I am very particular about grammar and correct spelling, but these mistakes could have easily been avoided.
Overall, I would definitely recommend the series to anyone who loves romances and fantasy.
