I LOVE Greek mythology, and I had high hopes for this book because of that love, so I really wanted to like this book...but I just couldn't. Don't get me wrong! I didn't hate it either! It was just one of those in-between books.
The plot seemed interesting enough, but it was not at all what I expected. And sometimes that's not necessarily a good thing. The book had incredible descriptions though!
I liked that there was action from the start. But the way the story started, I felt like we were thrust in to the middle of it. The beginning just happened much too fast, and had me a bit disoriented.
Another thing was that I couldn't really connect with Cora. She felt...distant...a bit emotionless, if you ask me.
But one thing I did like was the authors interpretation of the Underworld. I thought it was very interesting and creative!
Overall, it was an okay read, but left me with more questions than anything else.
Have you read this book? If so, what did you think about it? If not, what do you think? Does it sound like something you might want to read? Leave me a comment! :)
