Avery Montgomery doesn’t even know if she wants a soul mate.
As a member of the Hellenicus—a race founded in antiquity and descended directly from the Greek gods—Avery’s attending her first Gathering where she’ll gain the ability to entwine her thoughts with her destined soul mate and be tied to them forever.
But all is not as it seems at the Royal Court. There are severe and strange looks from the elders, whisperings from the ancient Dodona tree, and encounters with spirits who seem to know Avery better than she knows herself.
Throughout these whirlwind events at Court, Avery finds herself torn between her feelings for the wise and protective Vladimir and the passionate, fun-loving Adrian. Unwilling to surrender her independence or to betray her heart, Avery must decide once and for all if she’ll give in to her desires and risk the wrath of the Gods.
Because who are you if your destiny lies with another person?
I received an advance review copy for free as part of a blog tour, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.
This book heavily draws upon mythology which is a good thing as I like mythology books but I didn’t really like this one. I think it was the whole soulmate thing. It just drove me up the wall.
The whole book felt original but the soulmate aspect was an overused trope and that is where it completely lost me.
What also let this book down heavily was the underdeveloped characters. They just didn’t feel as dimensional as they could have been and it was a real shame as they all had so much potential.
I know I have said the whole soulmate aspect of this book is an overused thing but it didn’t feel like your stereotypical soulmate story. It was a bit more of that.
Overall, it was a good book but it just wasn’t for me.
