From this odd little youngling sprung an odd woman, who tries to capture the strange meanderings of her twisted imagination into a worthy tale.R. Moses lives in the Southeastern US with her husband and daughter. She does not enjoy sunlight, nor does she care for vapid celebrity gossip or unrealistic reality T.V.She does enjoy every minute of being a mama, a writer, an artist, and most minutes of being a wife.

This book is edgy, graphic and not for the faint of heart. I was very impressed with the character development, world building and of course, plotline. It's not often I read a book of this caliber, however when I do, it's highly appreciated. This is a book you're not going to want to put down until you've read the last page. Your mind will be going over what you read for awhile. I will be waiting for the next book and looking forward to reading more from this author. Thank you R. Moses! An excellent read:)

Has Promise. The potential to be the great beginning to a must read series is here. However, it’s hard to look past the weak relationships created between characters and the random spots of missing information throughout the book. I really want to like Abira, I try the entire novel to empathize with her - but despite her wanting to protect the innocent of hell she felt like a shallow character and at most parts of the book she acted like the gullible train-wrecks we hope our children never become. It almost seemed at parts as well, that the author looked a word up in a thesaurus and used all the biggest options that popped up to describe things. It made the sentences thick and hard to get through at times. As I said before however, could definitely become a great story - it is in desperate need of a through editing however.

enjoyed the mix of and poetic license of mythology. Names were familiar, yet vague. looked up a lot of the legends and that made the read even more enjoyable. Excellent book, and adventure.

It took me over 100 pages to really get into this book. It may have been because it was my first “Free” Nook book and I was being overly critical but once they hit the Aviary, I was all in. I was unprepared for how gruesome it was going to become. The harpy. The Tree of Knowledge. The elemental. Ew. Ew. And more ew. It’s fantastic that she could put those details in the story and still keep the story moving. It didn’t bog it down. It didn’t overwhelm me to the point of not wanting to read any further. It made the story unique which is rare these days. There were a few parts that I was confused about, one being how clueless she was once she got to Hades. We find out as the story progresses that her mother and Nana taught her cants and told her stories. Did the story mention that she hadn’t remembered these things until she was in hell? Maybe I missed it. At the beginning, I was distracted by what seemed to be a lot of what I call “thesaurus work” where the author looks for the most sophisticated word and rearranges the passage to take it. Another reviewer also mentioned this. I do this myself. Also, the beginning was probably edited soooo many times that it turned out a little mechanical. Again, this is common. And of course, there were some continuity issues and typos but not so much that it’s distracting to the reader. Grammatical errors in cheap or free Nook books are extremely problematic and are the first factor in my decision as to whether I’m interested in reading the book at all. Again, this was not a large problem this time. There were a few points where I thought to myself, damn, this would be a good movie scene. That’s great. That means I’m easily picturing the story in my head and I’m enjoying it. Another reviewer (shows the importance of these reviews – helps me decide if I’m going to read it or not) said, “This is not [you] usual story, the author takes you to a place you [didn’t] think you'd want to go.” He is right on the money there. I read this in two sittings. By the end, I was reading so fast. I was so into the story. I was really enjoying it. I enjoyed the characters and the plot. It was well-paced. Good for you, Moses. I will probably read the rest of the series. I hope this helps future readers.
