Top review from Australia
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I think my biggest problem is the age group of this book. College/University life NA, is a hard read for me - I think because that lifestyle of school, parties, gossip, bullying, etc is too far behind me and I never engaged in it particularly (having never gone to uni)!
That said, Jacquie is an awesome writer. This book is very well edited, with very few errors - which can be hard to find especially in ebooks.
Zoe and Theron make for good lead characters. There are many twists and turns, and people (or Gods) who you believe will act one way, then turn rogue. There's just enough foreshadowing of 'villain tendency' (for want of a better word!) to not let this be completely out of character when the characters turn bad. I thought the author showed great skills here.
The paranormal element worked well for me in terms of Zoe being a 'shepherder of souls' and I found it very believable. This is where I think the writing excelled in both emotion and description (paranormal content setting up Zoe's storyline).
Personally, Zoe's decisions toward the end of the book didn't quite sit well with me... but I also can't see any other way for the story to unfold without Zoe doing what she did... (very hard to write what I mean here without spoilers!)
It was a tricky one for me to rate, and I hope my review has done it justice.
It's a good read and a good story about the after-life, and readers who enjoy NA/paranormal will rate this highly.
Top reviews from other countries
Some are rather shallowly written with very stereotyped/predictable portions.
I liked the paranormal elements and the descriptive writing. The blending of known (and author created) Greek mythology is a nice addition.
While written for a YA audience, the story can appeal to a wide range of readers.
