Review Tour: From Gods

Review of FROM GOD

This is a pretty good book considering it is a YA novel. Skyler had plan to spend the last few weeks of her summer with her cousin before the start of collage. Things changed for Skyler when she meet the mysterious Mason. 

Mason is just what I love in a book boyfriend. He is cool, hot, and brooding. The book twist on mythology is pretty good. It had just enough action and just enough romance to keep things interesting. I do usually like my female lead to be more independent but this is only book one, hopefully she will be a stronger character as the series progresses.

The book is a good read. I read the whole book in one sitting. It's not too long, if anything, it's not long enough. The only thing that worry me is that if the books are about descendent of gods it makes the main leads in a way distant cousins. Skyler is a descendent of Hades and Mason is a descendent of Zeus. Zeus and Hades are brothers, that would make them cousins....

Did you just see a flash of lightning across the sky on a clear sunny day? Don’t blame Mother Nature.

Skylar Rome should have been having the best summer ever, before heading off to college. Suddenly her whole life changes while visiting her cousin, and meeting the Grand brothers; Mason, in particular. Though she’s sure he is someone she should stay away from, the attraction was undeniable.

Strange things begin to happen, throwing Skylar’s life into turmoil. Implausibly, she gets caught up in a world where the descendants of ancient gods have super powers, and evil beings are after her. Not only are her discoveries difficult to accept, but now she is running out of time and running for her life, while trying to unravel the mystery of what they want from her.

Forced into a battle set into motion long before she was born, will Skylar find the answers she seeks, or will she die trying?

Thanks for sharing your thoughts, I think you're the first person I saw mention the cousin thing and yeah, that would probably bother me too! Nevertheless, I love books featuring mythology so I am still very much interested in reading this one :)

Great review!
