After reading From Gods, I couldn't wait to get my hands on From Deities. As expected, it didn't disappoint.
Ting takes us deeper into stories out of Greek mythology, introducing more and more interesting characters you are bound to fall in love with.

Terrific sequel to From Gods! The characters we came to love in book one are back with a bang. So much changing, evolving, attacking, & romancing! We meet several new characters this time around, & I have to say some did a fabulous job of getting under my skin. While learning about these newbies we get the down low on the gods & their descendants causing many even more questions, doubts, & fears to arise. So much happens so quickly as we are literally transported to whole new worlds! You will be on high alert awaiting the next jolt thrown at you, which only increases as the story unfolds. Then....WAPPOW...we are hit with an even bigger revelation!

You have to read book 1, From Gods, before you read this book But this book is extremely good. I was completely wrapped up in the story. Sky is learning more about the Gods, and the Descendants along with their abilities. Sky is also changing. Lots of things happen in this story, you will be hanging on the edge of your seat gripping your kindle! But sadly, we are left with a clif-hanger at the end of this book. I don't want to wait to find out what is happening!
I had this story half figured out, about who was behind the things going on. But I wasn't fully correct or prepared for what really went down. It was a shocker, but awesome.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love love love!!!!! 13 October 2014
By mary - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I couldn't wait to start reading this book. It felt like I waited forever even if I didn't have to wait long at all. I loved From Gods, but From Deities..oh my God..just unbelievable!!!
We follow Skylar and Mason's journey through uncertain times and dangers, with Sky discovering new powers and together wih Mason and his family they all find new friends and new enemies.
There were so many twists and turns I was getting more excited with each page turned..and when someone important reappeared I was more then a bit pleased.
I don't even have words to describe how I feel..once again a brilliant story by Mary Ting.
I'm only sad that I have to wait for more.the third book can't come fast enough!

5.0 out of 5 stars utterly breathtaking and truly magical 13 October 2014
By Shadowplay - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
My heart has been bursting at the seams to come back to Skylar and Mason. The way we left them was almost too much to bear. I loved coming back and being immersed into this magical world of the descendants of the Greek gods. It felt as if I never left, and I was eager to find out how Skylar, Mason, and the rest of his family were doing. Remembering what all Skylar had to go through in learning that she has the blood of the gods running in her veins and how Mason finally let her into his heart left me in tortured pieces when the first part of their journey ended. I couldn’t wait to dive right in and see what shocking surprises were in store for us!

Skylar now understands that she is far from normal. She is a descendant of the Greek gods of Olympus. What a mind-blowing revelation that is, and it is only the beginning of what she is about to find out! She has no clue as to what awaits her in the days ahead, and that has her living her life in a constant state of hyper awareness. She can’t afford to let her guard down, or it could result in her death or the death of her friends. Thankfully, she has Mason to stand by her side and bring balance into her life. Without him, she would be utterly lost and her heart would be a hollow shell. He pours peace and guidance into her just as she breaths life and love into him. They are a perfect match, and it’s such a shame that they can’t ever seem to catch a break.

I adored Mason even more in this book. He was so wonderful in his tender loving care of Skylar. He guarded her and loved her as if she was his heart walking outside of his body which in truth she was. She broke down the walls around his heart and showed him that it was worth the risk of feeling to know just how much she cared for him. Skylar saved him from a life of darkness and oblivion, and he took every opportunity he could to thank her for awakening his heart and shining her gift of light upon him. If he could have built an indestructible fortress around her to keep her safe, happy, and worry-free he would have done it in a heartbeat, but since that wasn’t possible he watched over her and kept her as safe as he could. Under Mason’s loving and attentive care, Skylar was able to spread her wings confidently and stand bravely on her own two feet. The transformation that is taking place inside Skylar is amazing and is only the beginning. During this time of trial and hardship she needs all the help, encouragement, and love that she can get and Mason is just the man who can provide those things and much more.

Mary Ting captured my heart in From Gods when she introduced me to the world of the descendants of the gods, and in this book she has solidified my love of this story and its incredible characters. I fell in love even more with Skylar, Mason, and the rest of the Grand family. Their amazing resilience and unconditional love for each other is truly touching and beyond words. I look forward with bated breath to the next part of this enchanting journey. To say that I am excited to find out what Skylar discovers about herself and those around her next would be an understatement. This is one author that creates mind-bending story plots and fills them in with stunning characters that will make their unique mark on your heart long after you have finished reading. You don’t want to miss out on any of her wonderful stories!

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh My God...Oh My God..Friggin Awesome 12 October 2014
By babyssmile - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I was honored to receive this book for my honest review. Enjoy

“Love can destroy and love can heal. It’s what we decide to-do with it that determines that path”

What happens when one girl is given all the power that can alter the fate of those that have come before her and those that come after her? What happens when that powers that she holds within herself are just coming to light? How can these powers that she is holding determine the fate of generations to come? Will she be able to find happiness with the decisions she makes along the way? What about forgiveness and love?

Come take Skylar’s (Sky) journey with me to find the answers that she seeks.

Skylar’s blood is that of Medusa and Hades in which she holds a powerful combination of tortured souls. As she is coming into her powers as the chosen one she is amazed every time she opens her eyes. She can feel someone always watching her but can’t seem to see them. Who is this person and why her? The answers that you are looking for are in this book you will just have to read this book to find them out. No spoilers from this reviewer lol

Mason is Sky’s protector and her eternal love. Mason is able to feel when Sky needs him no matter what. It’s like their souls are one. To this couple they would not have it any other way. Mason has his family of friends always there to back him and Sky up whenever the need arises. he faithfulness of these kind souls is part of the back bone to this journey. “You’re always mine Echo” Mason to Skylar Mason has a pet name for Skylar and uses it several times throughout this journey. It can be calming to one knowing what the words actually mean.

Family that Sky has long forgotten comes to the forefront in this journey. The explanations that she seeks is not what she wants to hear however accepts to some degree. Sky has trouble believing the words that are spoken with a heavy heart.

In her journey Sky and Mason along with his family of friends are introduced to the New Olympus along with the new powers that be she has come to see within herself. Information on how the Vultures are evolving of that of the descendants to human form. (With a foul smell lol)

In the New Olympus we are introduced to the descendants:

Colin- descendant of Aries God of War

Aaron-descendant of Apollo God of Sun

Sarah-descendant of Athena

Adam and Kevin-descendant Hephaestus son of Zeus and Hera God of making weapons

Zara- the light in the New Olympus why then did Sky get an off feeling coming from Zara?

This journey however has just begun as we can see in the final pages of this awesome read. They all have struggled with losing loved ones of past and present. Can this new found journey that comes to be answer all the questions that we all hold dear to our hearts be answered?

The author Mary Ting has done it again in this reviewer’s opinion. She has yet again amazed, dazzled, taken my breath away and has totally rendered me speechless to the degree that this review was actually hard to put into words. No spoilers here. Please pick up this book embark on a journey you will never forget. Happy Reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lightning Strikes Again! 13 October 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Lightning strikes again in this sequel to Mary Ting's, From Gods. Skylar has a lot on her plate with college, her feelings for Mason and learning to deal with her new found powers. Who can she trust? I like that you get to learn more about Mason and his family's backgrounds. I do love the blending of romance with mythology. There is never a dull moment so be prepared for another roller coaster ride. I can't wait for the next book to find out what happens next. So "seal the deal" and get your copy today, you'll love it "hearts honor."
