***THIS BOOK WAS GIVEN TO ME IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
Did you just see a flash of lightning across the sky on a clear sunny day? It’s not from Mother Nature. It is most likely from Mason Grand, swoon-worthy demigod, one of Zeus’s descendants.
Skylar Rome is supposed to be having the best summer ever before she heads off to college. Little did she know, her whole life was about to change while visiting her cousin. Nearly drowning at the beach due to unknown forces, one of the Grand brothers she’d just met, Mason, saves her life. Cool, collected, mysterious, and dangerously good-looking, Skylar is drawn to him from the start. Though she knows he is the type of guy good girls stayed away from, it seems he is always saving her life, and the attraction was inevitable.
Upon meeting the brothers, strange things begin to happen. When she accidentally kills one of the brothers, it throws her life into turmoil, as they search to find the answers. Implausibly, she gets caught up in a world of the decedents of ancient gods, all who have super powers. Not only is her discovery difficult to accept, evil beings are after her. Running out of time and running for her life, she must unravel a mystery. What do they want from her? Forced into a battle set into motion long before she was born, will she find the answers, or will she die trying?
From Gods is a great mix of Greek mythology, electrifying romance, and paranormal mystery! The book has a YA feel but has NA aged characters. I would recommend it for mature YA readers and all NA fantasy readers!
Only days into her summer vacation, Skylar nearly drowns at the beach being pulled in by a mysterious creature and ends up being saved by Mason. However, Mason being a mystery himself only leads Skylar to begin questioning all of the strange things that are happening to her.
Skylar Rome is a great character. She is spunky, a bit insecure but a lot tougher than she looks. Mason is very mysterious but very swoony! He protects Skylar even though she doesn’t really need protecting. She is quite unknowingly powerful! In this lies the mystery of the book, who or what is Skylar? I thoroughly enjoyed the whole book even thought it ended in a cliffhanger!!! I hate those!
