Excellent read

Unfortunately, while I enjoy reading historical fiction this book was not the fictional account that I was hoping for! I was hoping for a story that I could read and compare to the series available on TV. I had not the patience to sit down and read this book- I needed pen and paper to keep track of all the places and dates and people-way to much like a history class.

    Name: Jasmine Windshill
    Age: 15
    Birthday: September 8th
    Gender: Girl
    Godly Parent: Apollo
    Height: 5 ft 7 in
    Weight: 112 pounds
    Build: Lithe, willowy, flexible, long-legged, and muscular
    Hair: Long, black strands reaching her waist. She braids it when she's training or on a quest or whenever to keep it out of her face. Otherwise, she lets it hang loose around her face. She has bangs that are streaked with gold in a strange symbol
    Eyes: Violet colored and startlingly vivid
    Other physical details: Her whole body is covered with scars, even more so now that she has returned from the quest. Her skin is the brown color of teakwood, starkly contrasting with her eyes.
    Skills: Combat(hand-to-hand and with weapons), music, leadership, judging character, interpreting riddles, logic, climbing, swimming, basketball, sports in general, making friends, etc...
    Personality: Generally mistrusting at first, Jasmine is extremely loyal and a good fighter. She has a fiery spirit and never gives up. She has limitless reserves of determination and humor to lighten any mood, but sometimes sticks to the background. Jasmine is very curious, but a fast learner. She is a little ambitious and very logical. She is very competitive, never backing down from a challenge. Jasmine is great to have on your side during a battle, be it verbal or physical. She can get very philosophical at times, but is a wonderful listener and a great friend, always knowing what to say.
    Status: Single as a Pringle
    Crush: None. Yet.
    Powers: She isn't quite sure. Other than shooting, she can bend sunlight and make it have substance, controlling it.

    Theme Song: Gold by Britt Nicole/Wake Me Up by Avicii
    Other: She is ADHD. Also, she has been at camp for 6 years.
