Blurb: Gifted power over life and death, Lysandros has spent millennia in the underworld, listless and alone. The youngest child of Hades and Persephone, he’s been sheltered from the threats in the world above.
Theo Ward hasn’t been so lucky. After watching his mother wither away, he’d do almost anything to have her back. When a messenger appears at the Banneker College of Magic and offers the young professor a chance to save her, Theo can’t pass it up, even if it means going straight into the underworld and dragging her home. But Theo gets more than he bargained for when he crosses paths with the prince of Hades.
Set against the king of Olympus, they must shed their past burdens and learn to trust in each other, so they can face down a storm that threatens to wipe the nation’s capital off the map.
Review: I loved this story about Theo. He’s on a journey to see his mom in the underworld. His travels send him on a romance when he meets the prince of Hades, Lysandros. These two were a great match and helped each other overcome different struggles. I loved the plot and how not everything is as it seems.
This story draws the reader into Greek mythology in a modern day setting which was intriguing t read. I found myself immersed in a fantastic telling of two men on a journey into the unknown yet together they traverse through danger, peril and love.
I am looking forward to reading more in this series to see what else takes place.
