There is a world that runs parallel to our own, a world in which the souls of the damned are caged, where they are looked over by the Furies, and where they spend eternity in torment, mirroring the devastation and mayhem they created when alive. Someone has opened the cage. The worst of terrors has crossed the barrier that separates our world from theirs, and the Furies send a great, albeit untested warrior—their only son, Alek—to try to bring those souls back. He is young and handsome, headstrong and impulsive, and he won’t be able to do it alone. Eva has grown up, beautiful and beloved, but surrounded by secrets. First, she will be hunted in an ancient feud that will threaten her life. Then, she will become the hunter. With the police closing in and two worlds on the verge of crumbling around them, Alek and Eva must find each other, discover the limits of their powers, and work together to save everything they hold dear, including one another. Blending elements of mythology with the dazzling storytelling that her fans have devoured through the House of Night series, Kristin Cast weaves a spellbinding and passionate tale that starts a thrilling new series with an explosive charge.
I read the House of Night series for a little bit. But ended up stopping for certain reasons. So when I saw this one, I thought I would give it a try.
This one for me was hard to get into. I really didn't understand what was going on. But I continued through to see where the story would go. The story involves Greek mythology and then the present. I wasn't a fan of the back and forth. I would start getting into Eva's part and then it would go to the Greek Part. I'm not sure what it is. It's not a bad story, I just feel something about it could of been better.
For those who are super into the Greek Mythology, it would be perfect for that crowd
