This book was so fantastic I don't know where to begin. Well first off I guess I'll start with how it ended. Morpheus swearing to betray his family? Now that really hurts, but let's face it Morpheus is still green when it comes to whom to trust and his lack of loyalty towards his family when it counted made this more enjoyable if not heartbreaking and makes for a well drawn conclusion to this book. Also putting us in for a marvelous opening for what I suspect is the final installment for the spin-off. Now onto the nitty gritty our main heroes Hermie and Hestie. These two characters have come far from the adorable fearless children that never had a care in the world in the first spinoff book Hypnos. They've now reached their teens and have awesome personalities of their own which are only grow more developed as their journey to save their parents and fulfill their destiny procede's within the book. From start to finish I loved them. From Hesties more engaging upbeat personality which is similar to her mother's to Hermies more reserved somewhat shy personality which is much like Thans. The fact the fulfilled their destinies through social media was probably their most amazing feat. Can't wait to see what these two accomplish as gods now that Poros has given them godhood.
What was also really engaging in this is that our two main focus characters gained some friends along the way and not just friends but also romantic interest. Now onto Therese and Than, though everything with these two was brief it was still engaging to see these two lovebirds and their ever still strong connection with one another. But what was truly beautiful between these two was their affection for their children. It shows how similar they both are to Persephone and Hades when it comes to family though all those of the underworld pantheon shine brightly in that regard. Once Than and Therese were turned into gods once again I rejoiced at it and having them back in action only filled me with excitement.
Now onto pretty much everyone else that did their part in making this book such a five star rating. Pretty much every god that joined with Hades was fantastic. The underworld gods always do their thing. The fact that Persephone was the one who came up with so much and showed her devotion to the cause by staying in the danger zone was amazing and I hope she's rescued soon I know Hades will want the honor himself. Now Poros and Prometheus were a shocker to find together but honestly it made for a great Batman and Robin type thing in my opinion lol.
Everything in this book just screaming final battle interlude that will knock the readers socks off when Storming Olympus comes out May of next year. Zeus definitely has his work cut out for him as do many of the Olympian gods who in truth I hope see enough reason but not so much that they don't get their asses handed to them strongly in the next book. Let's just say the stupidity of excepting Zeus as their ruler along with not seeing the overbearing self absorbed dickheadness that Zeus possess to the point where he's like the a neo Cronos is truly beyond me. And the idiot gods who side with him need to get their asses firmly beat.
Two other things I'll say in regards to this book. Poros' assessment of what kind of change is necessary. The fact that so many prayers have been left unanswered and how the devotion the gods show should be more towards humanity instead of just to things regarding themselves. And Apollos loyalty which in fact in my opinion kind of helped the situations because of when he brought up certain things. In all honesty his loyalty in this book make up for what his relaying of his incomplete visions caused for Hades and Persephone.
Well that's that Zeus needs his ass kicked along with the other Olympians, can't wait to see Therese and Than back and in full action and also see Hermie and Hestie in God action. And can't wait to see what transpires after all is said and done and hopefully a change will happen. #needforchange #stormingolympus #GoPoros #GoPrometheus #GoHades
Hermie and Hestie, the twins born to Thanatos and Therese, never asked to be demigods. Unlike others of their kind, they aren't interested in going on quests and being the center of a world-changing prophecy. But when Zeus learns of Apollo's vision--of the twins finding Prometheus, Zeus's number one enemy--the hunt for Prometheus begins. Zeus and his allies want to bind Prometheus and kill the twins before their threat of a revolution becomes a possibility. If Hermie and Hestie don't find the Titan first, they have no chance of fulfilling their destiny or of surviving Zeus's threat against them.
