SON OF WAR

Demigods were meant to be the heroes of Olympus. . .

Xan was trained by his father Ares to be ruthless and lethal. As a kynigόs, he spends his time hunting monsters that prey on naïve mortals and foolish demigods. When the arrogant sons of Apollo tag along on a routine assignment, an easy kill turns deadly.

Forced to recuperate at a conservatory, Xan is surrounded by the abuse and selfishness of the resident demigods. All he wants is to escape.

Xan may be the son of the god of war, but his fighting skills are no match for the destiny the Fates have woven for him.

Son of War is a blend of teen fantasy and Greek mythology set in the modern world. Perfect for readers who love the adventure of Percy Jackson with a dash of romance. This story is a companion to The Sphinx series but can be enjoyed independently of it.

REVIEW

that one was a great page turner. Fast paced action with characters known from Sphinx series.
Apollo sons were the same hateful dudes as I know them.
Xan is a demigod that follows only his own will.
Last chapter – crap I loved it!

And thanks to Raye Wagner once again I’m in the middle od deciding if I’m team Xan or team Athan in the series.

DAUGHTER OF DARKNESS

Who will be her light in the dark?
Dahlia knows her value… it’s less than nothing. As a daughter of the goddess Eris, discord and wanting are her only companions. While she craves love and friendship — or even just a sense of belonging — those are the very things her presence destroys.
Unless . . .
One day, a mysterious stranger rescues her from a fight and offers her the unattainable: a safe haven with other demigods. But Dahlia fears a new residence can only be a temporary reprieve. It can’t end well — not for her or the others.
After all, it’s impossible to change who she is.

Blending Greek mythology and fantasy in the modern world, Daughter of Darkness deals with issues of abandonment, abuse, self-esteem, and finding one’s place in the world. It takes place in the same mythical world as The Sphinx series, but it is a companion story (12,000 words) and can be enjoyed independently.

REVIEW

It’s a shortie about Dahlia. How she get to the conservatory? How her relationship with Xan was established?
Great short read that answered some of my questions from The Spinx Series.

Description:

Can Apollo’s curse be broken?
Seventeen-year-old Hope Nicholas is done running. Apollo’s curse has ruled her entire life, limiting her choices and robbing her of the things that matter most. But she refuses to live in fear any longer. In fact, she’s ready to do whatever it takes to break the god’s power over her existence.
When the goddess Artemis instructs Hope to impersonate a demigod and infiltrate a conservatory to get access to the Olympian library, she doesn’t hesitate. As she sees it, there’s nothing left to lose.
But once inside, Hope discovers the only way to get what she needs is to work with her sworn enemies. As the lines between demigod and monster are crossed again and again, Hope has to dig deep for the courage to accept her fate or fight for the freedom to save herself.
Demigods and Monsters is the second book in the Sphinx series.

Review:

In this book we get bunch of other characters (we know only 3 important from book 1). It could be difficult to introduce that amount of characters in second book but author managed it briliantly!
This book is more about feeling and emotions than previous one. It was so vivid to me that i had to hołd myself back just not to scream or cry.
Usualy in situation when 2 boys hit on girl i have my fav one but here im chsnging my mind with every apperence of that character. What i can say i want both of them for myself!
In this book lots of characters anpre well developed we get to know something about them so we are able to judge them.
The world created here is so interesting that i want to skip in. In this book there are pkaces where what you think in false of all times.
I can’t wait to read book 3 as i really enjoyed this book.

Run or not to run in mythology nightmare? Curse of the Sphinx by Raye Wagner

26079201Author: Raye Wagner

ASIN: B013PD4U5O

Published: August 2015

 

Description:

How long can a monster stay hidden in plain sight?
Seventeen year-old Hope Nicholas has spent her entire life on the run. But no one is chasing her. In fact, no one even knows she exists. With her mom, she’s traveled from town to town, barely staying long enough to meet anyone, let alone make friends. And she’ll have to keep it that way.
It’s safer.
When her mother is brutally ripped away from her, Hope’s life shatters. Is this the fulfillment of Apollo’s curse? Is Hope, too, being hunted? Orphaned and alone, Hope flees again, but this time there’s no one to teach her who to trust—or how to love.
Set in a universe where mythology is alive and well in the modern world, Curse of the Sphinx irresistibly blends action, suspense and romance. Curse of the Sphinx is the first book in the young-adult Sphinx series.

Review:

What would you do when you are a monster? Some of us would scream, cry or so. But not our heroine here – Hope, she knows her way and what to do. She was great character but not an ideal one (which make me smiling like bananna) as i love that kind of heroine.
Other main character (Athan) is a guy who catch your eye, but you know he will play with you in some kind and when he is serious you can be sure of it (i want him for myself!!)
The world was like ours, but in the same time totaly different. I was into the Greek mythology since primary school so this topic i know in and out. In this world demigods lives among normal people.
This in not a book only for myths lovers. There we can find also a very sweet romance bethween main characters – i felt all Hope emotions during reading).
If you like mythology, romance and young adult this is a book for you!!
