Rating: ★★★★★Synopsis from Goodreads:
Skye Walters thought waking up on the side of a river with no memory was her biggest problem. She had no idea that the man who had saved her from drowning, the man she now depended on, Aiden, was more than mere mortal. A warrior of ancient.
No memory, nowhere to go, Skye stays in the mountain town, only to discover she herself, has unexplained powers. Her life, her destiny, are soon out of her control, as are her feelings for Aiden. The deeper Skye gets sucked into Aiden’s hidden world, the more the past, and who she really is, threatens her future, her love, her sanity.
OMG!!! This is so cool. I can’t believe how intense the mythology behind this story was. I was completely taken by the twist on the Greek Pantheon and the brilliant explanation behind it. Jackson creates a whole new world based on a very, very old concept and immerses readers in it in a manner that cannot be beat.
The characters in this story are just amazing. They are all such complete people. Some of them may be a little off of their rockers, but that is just their personalities, not a lack of creativity on the author’s part. Each and every character is unique. They all have a back-story, complete and very interesting. These back-stories also mesh very well with their current characteristics and personalities.
The mountain forest in which this story takes place is very well developed. It is very difficult to write well about such serene and scenic locales, but Jackson manages it with a flourish. Her descriptions and writing style lend themselves to this. It also lends itself to the great deal of action and intensity in the story. Jackson does not give the audience a moments rest, keeping up the fast pace throughout.
I cried, I laughed, I loved. I thoroughly enjoyed every second of this novel. I cannot wait until I can read the sequel.
