Releasing The Gods (The Titan's Saga Book 1) Kindle Edition
A single dare on Maisey Parker's twenty first birthday and her entire life changed.
One second she was getting drunk with her friends, and the next she was climbing a cliff, cutting her hand, and accidentally offering a blood sacrifice that opened a thousand year old prison. A prison that contained the only living Titan. One too powerful to kill. One that wants nothing to do with being attached to Maisey.
Cronus has an old score to settle with the Greek Pantheon. Lucky she has some sick days saved up at work, because Maisey is dragged along whether she likes it or not. A decision Cronus no doubt regretted right around the time she makes a colossal mistake, unleashing an untold evil on the world.
Now they're in a race against the clock to resurrect the other Titans, the only beings who can contain the evil. They're the world's last hope. And Maisey's.

The story suffers from rushing from place to place without exploring the area, the characters and their relationships.
All of the important Arcs of the story happen within a few pages and feel flat because of it.
The characters are fun, and there is some good humor. I did like the main character as she has a good mix of strength and flaws.
Because the story is so short the bad guys never really feel that bad, you don't get enough time to really invest with the situation and the gravity of it all.
It was a solid quick read and I'm intrigued enough to read the next book, but won't rush out to pre order it.
I could say I felt like someone threw me overboard but no that’s not epic enough. This probably won’t necessarily mean much to you guys since you haven’t read the book, but it felt like being punt kicked off a cliff with no life bond….if you had a life bond just think of going bungee jumping, I personally have never been (coz heights are terrifying lol)…but you know the moment they spring back up? Well it’s like that expect boom your safe and back on solid ground, no kasplat for you . Without a life bond? #SoScrewed #PleaseRememberMe – that’s your predicament. So maybe go find yourself a life bond? Coz safety first.
Now your probably all rolling your eyes at me…going stop being a drama queen, but don’t judge until you read this book and that last scene. #Don’tBeGivingMeNoAttitude
Okay, okay fine I’m moving on. But seriously guys you really need to read this book! It’s funny, full of life, has hot Titans, a killer story and a chick that is so determined to show that humans are just as worthy as all the gods in this book. Who are btws #SoCocky…Humans can be awesome and all that too you know!
At first look, even maybe second, you may just see a girl that’s kind of a little shallow. Obsessed with getting likes and follows on Insta and is well known as the #HashtagQueen…but you see pretty quickly, for me anyways, that Maisey is just a girl trying to find her place in the world, trying to stay afloat in a life that hasn’t been all to kind to her and to prove she is worthy and that she won’t be alone in this life.
This new chapter in her life…that #ChangesEverything all starts at her 21st birthday party and a double dare, which she could never pass up. So what does she do but go climb up the cliff to go take a selfie in a supposedly haunted cave. She’s not scared because she doesn’t believe in ghosts or the likes…but when she accidentally cuts herself climbing and said hand ends up on some pretty archaic cave wall…she kinda accidentally lets out a being that’s been locked up for a thousand years #OopsDidIDoThat. Like any person who has been drinking she totally puts it down to high levels of alcohol and one of her friends slipping something into her drink.
But next day nope, the hot as hell guy, wait he’s not really a guy #HotTitanAlert, is still there in her apartment and everything that is happening is #Real…and due to her saving him from the prison world, it kind of made a life bond happen between the two of them. If she dies, he dies, where he goes she goes. There’s really no choice in the matter because if she doesn’t follow #LotsOfPain #MadeToFollow sooo being the girl that she is she takes in all in stride.
Basically after releasing one hella powerful Titan, Cronus, he’s on a little bit of a payback mission for the Pantheon gods that put him there and killed his family…being stuck to this human is an inconvenience to him obviously and her peppy, take things in stride attitude kinda annoys him a little – see he’s very serious and doesn’t like to smile much but can you blame the dude? First off, he’s a Titan that’s been trapped for AGES and secondly he just attached himself to an annoying human, as he sees it, that could potentially kill him.
But before anything can go underway with Cronus’ payback plan, being stuck in a prison world can kinda drain a fella out…and being drained is not good news, because that means there’s quite a few gods gunning for his sexy butt; Coz best time to take him down is clearly when his drained. So off Cronus and Maisey go trying to keep ahead of a not so happy Zeus and his followers.
So obviously, when your power is running low you go chase after a person that can give you a weapon that can injure a god right?! And from here some crazy stuff starts happening. Old enemies meet and Cronus is adorable with how he protects his human.
There’s also new allegiances that are made….haha and nope not telling you who with. But with this new person on their side, they also find that they had to make a deal…because duh we have to spice things up a little. And that’s when bigger problems come about like #EndTheWorld kind. You see where they have to go to complete this deal, is a place filled with all these items Zeus has collected and Cronus leaves Maisey on her own, which #IsNeveraGoodIdea and she kinda finds herself having opened Pandora’s Box.
And about Nine levels of epic proportions of bad just happen to come out of it. Nine deadly sins…that have only grown in power since the last time they had been locked away. Sooo now they kinda have to go save the world. Leave Zeus for another day.
There’s one thing I haven’t told you…and I’m not going to say a lot even on it…but somehow Maisey isn’t all that she seems…and when she opened the box she just became an extremely crucial part in all of this…and she may just be the only way to save humankind from being made extinct. And that is all I’m saying on that matter. You can’t make me say more.
I really loved this world that Jaymin and Leia created. I don’t think I’ve actually read anything like that, where its the Titan’s that are on the good side trying to fix stuff. So I loved that switch it up. Even besides that, this world has been crafted to perfection even if it leaves you panting for breath and in a perpetual state of #FreakingOut
I just can’t stop thinking of that cliffy and how much hurt my chest experienced…like my chest literally felt like it was being tugged on and then BOOM the books just finished and everything is #bad #NoAmountOfChocolateCanFixThis
All I need right now is answers that's all. That’s not asking too much is it?!
At the moment I don’t know much…but I do know that I feel like a kid that’s counting down the days to their birthday or Christmas and its not getting here soon enough. #YouDoKnowI’mDyingOverHereRight?
But I will grudgingly say thank you for bringing us into this amazing world even if you didn’t send us in with safety gear to survive. So readers this is me giving you a warning…brace yourself for impact lol.
You guys are in for one hell of a ride with this story. It's the kind that will be make everything else cease to exist as it sucks you into its world. So really just clear your schedule and enjoy being brought into this incredibly constructed world.
Cheers guys and happy readings :)
Maisey thought that the most important thing in her life was her social media life, getting 50k follows on her Instagram account and hoping to get sponsors. When she is double dared to climb up the “haunted cliff” on her twenty-first birthday she never thought that she would accidentally unlock a thousand year old prison and get a life bond to a Titan. Being bonded to a Titan with revenge on his mind means that she is pulled across the world making deal after deal with other Titans/Gods. But when Pandora’s box is opened and Nine Deadly Sins are released, she must work with the arrogant Titan to recapture the Sins before Earth is destroyed.
Firstly I just have to say how much I love these ladies. Their work as individual authors are just phenomenal but when you put them together it’s like all my Christmas’ and birthday’s have come at once. I’ve read everything by these ladies as individuals and co-authored and I can’t get enough of them.
So now on to the book review...
What an absolute exhilarating start to a series, if this is any indication on how awesome this series is going to be then we are in for one heart pulling, high stakes, emotional overload of an experience. And I CANT wait!
I love a good Mythology twist and this was off the charts. There are so many different renditions out there on the Titans/Gods. But so far I have not found one where the Titans are the misunderstood/victims. There have been plenty with Zeus being the arrogant, evil, nasty being. I loved how Maisey would make references to what is in the history books about the Titans and seeing Cronus’ reaction, telling her that Zeus rewrote the tales.
Maisey is a little scatterbrained but her character growth was enjoyable to see. Even though she never really embraced the whole Titans and Gods existed in the beginning she was happy to just go with it. But when it mattered she was on board fully.
The constant humour between Maisey and Cronus is a great distraction from the seriousness of the situation that they are in. So many times throughout the book I found myself lol and getting weird looks from the kids. When I tried to explain what was going on to them they would respond by saying there was something wrong with me. They just don’t understand 😂.
I can’t wait to see what happens next in book two, especially after that ending. I can’t believe what went down. There better be a really good explanation and reason behind it.
The mission to save the world is rife with challenges for Maisey as she will have to fight with constant temptation (all those hot god bods!), face countless moments of extreme jealousy, deal with annoying exes, and spoiled, attention seeking children (looking at you Zeus), all while feeling completely out of her depth #notwhatisignedupfor

I really enjoyed this book and am very much looking forward to reading book two. Releasing the Gods gets five stars from me.
