I'm not a regular reader of YA but when I saw the cover art I had to see what it was about. Finding out that it takes place in Greece is what made me HAVE to read this. Between the cover and the author you know it takes place in Greece but her description made me feel like I was right smack in the middle of the book. I love vampires and I just love Greek mythology and I never thought that I would find them both in one book.

Let me start by saying, I finished this book in one night. How do you come up with a new vampire idea? Add Greek mythology! -- Genius! It's Percy Jackson meets twilight (complete with love triangle) I ate it up !
Definitely a great quick read, I highly recommend it can't wait to start the rest of the series!

Pohler has a very approachable writing style that allows readers to focus on the story at hand. Her descriptions are vividly realistic. Pohler doesn’t just tell you that her characters are in Greece, her words and descriptions transport you there. The different cultures we encounter stand out in stark contrast to one another.

Pohler has done a brilliant job of developing each one while building it into the storyline as a whole. She builds a fabulous and unforgettable new world for readers to get lost in. The melding of mythology, the paranormal, and a dash of mysticism is a heady mix and lends itself nicely to this story. Pohler makes Greek mythology her own here in a bit way. The pantheon is transplanted into modern day with a few very original twists along the way. I love her origins of vampires. It’s very easy to grasp for those versed in Greek mythology or simply the story of Dionysus.

The main character portrays emotions in a very realistic manner. I love the fact that her decisions betray her age at every turn. She tries to follow her heart and do what she feels is right, but it rarely goes as planned for her. She can’t seem to grasp the concept that she’s pushing away those she’s trying to help until it’s too late. This is completed with a fantastic and diverse cast of characters that you not only get to know very well, but who are outstanding individuals that I’d love to meet in person. I love how Pohler’s characters have actual conversations with one another. The dialogue is fantastic and spot on.

This is a novel that will be enjoyed by young adult & adult audiences alike.
