At first, I really did not want to read this book. I was hesitant because I thought I would hate it since I normally don't read this type of thing unless it's filled with a lot of humor. With my prior misgivings I jumped right in and read the whole book.
This was a pleasant surprise. The book has humor and the author has certainly done her research on mythology in order to write this book. It's set in our time with a bunch of renegade gods and goddesses “behaving badly.” Ah, I see what she did there.
So, this book is about the human form of Hecate who calls herself “Cate.” Her soul was stolen by Hades and her lover is Ares. Alright, so we have a love triangle and a “Hecate-Cate” who is sarcastic, witty, and who is portrayed as a “bad-ass.” These types of books are getting more and more popular and I can see why. It's a really cool portrayal.
For a first book, I like how this author is doing. Personally, I felt the book was a bit short but that's a good thing. I look forward to seeing more of this author's work and I give this book an 8 out of 10.
