My Thoughts:

This book started with the nymph Goddess Epione denying Zeus access to her bed. In retaliation, he cursed all nymphs. If they fall in love with a human, then that man will die a tragic death.

After that little episode, it comes back to the future and the book is somewhat slow moving. I found myself being easily distracted more than once while reading it. Eventually it picked up and was much more interesting.:D

I liked Ariadne and I kept waiting for her to quit being a doormat. I would say falling in love brought out the best in her. :D  Beau was a good leading man. ;-) I did not like Kat or Stavros at all!

The plot had Greek mythology, snake shifting nymphs, an archaeologist on a mission, danger, romance (not too steamy), and action.

I received a copy of this book from FMB in exchange for my honest opinion. Overall, I enjoyed it.

What do you think of Greek mythology?

I'd love to know what you're thinking. Please leave a comment!

    I love Greek mythology! But I confess that I'm not crazy about many new novels which are trying to modernise the myths.

    I like your description that falling in love brings out the best in Ariadne. I think this should be true for all Romance heroes and heroines--and well, for all of us real life folk, too. =)

    1. Enbrethiliel,

      While this is a book that has Greek mythology in it, I wouldn't say that the author modernized it.

      The beginning was long ago and the rest of the book was not so much about the Gods/Goddesses as Ariadne and the results of Zeus's curse on the nymphs.

      Yes I agree, love should bring out our best qualities. If people were more perceptive, they would be able to tell whether their relationship was a good one or not by paying attention to how they act when they are involved with someone.

  2. i love the greek mythology especially the old text and story i've read so many drama and divinities so more human than their subjects^^;;

    However, when it's a rewritten of the mythology i usually don't like it as much, after reading teh original i'm often disappointed by the error or change done ( for example i liked the film " le choc des titans" from long ago that was more accurate to the myth than the new version of it, more recent, better special effect yes but man so many errors)

    For books i loved teh percy jackson series it was enjoyable and quite good

    1. Yes, Percy Jackson is a good series! My son is reading those books now. :D

      This book isn't like that. The Gods have little to do with this book. It is mostly about the results of the curse that Zeus placed on the nymphs.

  3. My favorite character is usually a good alpha shapeshifter.

  4. love mythology.

  6. I love Greek mythology and find it utterly fascinating. There are so many life lessons and warnings built into the stories, and even today a lot can be learned from them. And my favorite paranormal being is a shapeshifter.

  7. I enjoy books about all of them... but I would have to say my current favorite is shifters.

  8. I love greek mythology. If a book has it in it I usually will end up reading it.
