Calli is seemingly your average, normal girl... but she's not, really. You see, Calli is short for Calliope, as in one of the nine Greek Muses! Calli is a Muse, she just doesn't know it yet. However, there was a very different take on the mythology in this book, so the Muses aren't like the traditional Muses in Ancient Greece. I love Greek mythology and I'm all for different/unique takes on it, but this one just didn't do it for me. I mean, the gods are portrayed as freakin' vampyres! (Yes, that's vampires with a 'y.') Oh, that and (without giving too much away) the whole thing about the gods and their souls being separated, and the reincarnation-type thing... it just didn't work! It didn't make any sense to me!
And the romance-thing that was going on... ugh! So, Calli has a boyfriend, Thrace, but then she starts drooling over the new guy who she doesn't know is the Greek god Hermes. It's understandable since he is a god, after all. But then Apollo comes in and, well, here we go again! More drooling! Apollo is my favorite Greek god, but come on! Her attraction to all these guys at the same time was very, very annoying! Make up your mind, girly!
I did love the tone of the book. It really had a great voice and I just loved being inside of Calli's head. The writing was style was great, too.
Overall, the book was quite enjoyable. I mean, I wasn't crazy about the take on the mythology or the story itself, but I did enjoy the way the story was told! It was just a lot of fun!
