Finally a book with Greek mythology elements that I really enjoyed! Why haven't I heard of this book before? It has all the right ingredients; kick-ass female character, brooding mysterious hero, Southern setting and a host of peculiar and magical freaks. I love them all!
The New Orleans setting brings a dark and sinister air to the story and I think that the colourful characters that inhabited the New 2 makes the story much more compelling. Add in Ari's mysterious past and her quest in finding her birth mother and the surprising revelation behind it. Well the story is just perfect!
I especially love the kids in the House of Misfits. Crank and her gadget prowess, little Violet with her mysterious fangs, Dub the grave digger and of course gorgeous Sebastian; the half-vampire half-witch. Seriously even without the Greek elements the story is so darn good! Even the goddess Athena made an appearance towards the end of the story.
A Beautiful Evil; the second book in the series is already out so don't forget to check that out as well.
Recommended for: fans of Southern paranormals and Greek mythology
Verdict: 5 stars.
