This week has been crazy busy, but somehow I've manage to add a chapter to my next novel, Aquila; into the light, and read a fab book which I've reviewed below.
This week I've read:
When struggling pre-med student Ruby West beats the unconquerable Ash at chess he becomes fixated on her. Which is great if you like smouldering blue eyes, sculpted features, and afternoons of unexpected adventure, but not so great when she discovers he is a Greek god and his father, Zeus, has forbidden the gods from interacting with humans.
Ruby soon realizes her love for Ash threatens the fragile stability that has kept the gods from meddling in the mortal world.
Before long the two find themselves on a quest to rescue a goddess, save the Earth from unending winter, and secure the right to be together forever.
This book is better that good, it's pretty awesome. If you're a fan of Greek mythology, chess, romance, reading, coffee... you get the point. The story follows Ruby, a medical student who is struggling through classes. She plans to follow in her late father's footsteps and join Medics for Mercy, working as a doctor in the war. She plays Ash at chess and wins, earning his unwanted attention in return.
Joannah Miley has created a beautiful story, combining modern-day civilisation and humans with the gods of Greek mythology. You don't have to have understanding of the subject to appreciate the characters as she has introduced and developed them well throughout the book. She has really given them different voices and displayed their personalities brilliantly.
I enjoyed reading this book. There is action, suspense and love. The locations and emotions are well written and believable. I look forward to reading the next instalment.
I give this book:
