My Review:

I loved ‘From the Gods’ , the first book in this series and couldn’t wait to dive into this sequel – and I have to say it just got better! I’m going to try to avoid revealing spoilers to the first book whilst reviewing this one, but apologies in case I inadvertently reveal anything… Skylar discovered about her unique heritage and the associated powers in the first book and now she’s finding out just what implications that has for herself and those she cares about. This story continues on directly from the end of the first book so I believe it is essential to read that one first – but that’s only my opinion!

Her romance with Mason Grand continues in this story, he is a brilliant character – the kind of boyfriend every parent wishes their daughter will one day be loved by. He’s now so caring and loving, determined to watch over her and protect her as more dangers threaten them. There are revelations, new contacts and so much more in this intriguing story but deciding just who to trust is more difficult than you’d imagine. Get ready for another action packed adventure with the descendants of Greek gods on opposing sides – and with Skylar in the middle having to learn to control her new powers and to use them wisely whilst still deciding just who is truly supporting her endeavours to overturn the evil plans of Hades and his supporters.

With brilliantly portrayed characters, mythological links and a plot full of twists and turns this is a very different and enthralling series – I’ve loved the first two books and can’t wait to read more in future! 

Many thanks to the author, publisher and Barclay Publicity for gifting me a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

About FROM TITANS (Descendant Prophecies Book 4)From Titans cover

Everyone is searching for Mason.

Zeus sent Hermes, and the Oracles have used their magic, with no success. A sparkle of hope arises when Eris, the goddess of Chaos, sends an invitation to her wedding engagement party. She’s holding Mason hostage, and Skylar and her friends only need permission to enter Eris’s world to rescue him.

At the party, Eris gives them one condition: In exchange for Mason, they must travel to the Land of Reverse and bring back the bottle of gold water King Midas used to wash himself free of his gift. Further chaos follows when Eris not only sets up a hunt in the Labyrinth of Crete, but makes a bargain with the Titans she rescued.

The Titans possess power more than anyone anticipated, and Cronus is hungry for revenge after his own children locked him up in Tartarus. No one is safe. Not even the humans.
