    Intriguing & Addictive!

    Wow! What a fantastic start to a new series. Get ready for a fantastic Journey as Kasey discovers a whole new life/world beyond her wildest dreams in a country far away from her own home. I was intrigued by the story immediately as the author’s description of Kasey and her situation became visualized from the smooth writing. It was totally addicting and I could not put the book down, I had it read within 4 hours and only craved more in the end.

    The characters were so real like and the connections between all of them were family oriented, passionate, and heart melting emotional. With a great mixture of Christianity (God & his first Children) and Greek Mythology (Greek God’s, Goddess, and Demigods) intertwined, it made for a very interesting story that I will never forget.

    First off I love Mythology especially anything about Pandora’s Box (Jar) and as I read this great story the author held my interest and excitement of learning more about Pandora and her descendants. I also love the different take on how the God’s, Goddess, and demigods came about and how the Almighty God with his warrior angels ended the great war in the heavens.

    The myth story on the 7 Men of the Cave came with some interesting characters making the story mysterious and exciting to learn more about them, they were not only handsome but they all had different talents and special abilities to go along with their immortality.

    Here are just a few short quotes of their description and who they were:

    “Max-Maximian can heal with his touch. Anthony-Antoninos, can speak with animals. John-Joannes sees the future and Martin-Martinianus sees the past or present”

    “Sam-Sambatus my older brother can leave his body in spirit form and move around in a ghost like way. James-Jamblichos my younger brother can move objects with his mind. Me-Dionysius , I am fast,”

    The story’s plot remained a mystery all through the book and I loved that about it. The romance between Kasey and Dion built up beautifully. I would have to say the heat level on this romance was mild, I would also say that the story’s romance could be based on a border line between Young Adult and Adult especially since Kasey’s character was 18 and the immortals were several centuries old. There were a couple of make out scenes but they were very tasteful, nothing naughty.

    I found the story very humorous with the bantering between the 7 brothers and with Kasey. In the end, though I wanted a Happy Ever After and an ending climax to the mystery of the 7 Men of the Cave along with the relationship between Kasey and Pandora, I quickly accepted the cliff hanger knowing there will be a book 2 “Jar of Pandora” in the series and am totally Jones-ing until it comes out.

    I highly recommend this book to all those who have an interest in romance with mythology and Christianity elements. You will truly be amazed at the author’s talented writing and storytelling. Marisette Burgess you have a new fan and I can’t wait to read more of your work.

    Excellent read!

    ***** I was gifted a copy of this book for an honest review*****

    This book started out a little slow for me, but once I got through the first 3 chapters I was hooked and could not stop turning pages. This is so different from anything that I have ever read because I typically shy away from religious/ Greek mythology. How ever I am so glad that I decided to give this book a chance. It was a good easy read. I thought it would be hard to follow as I do not know much about Greek mythology , but the author does and amazing job at explaining the Greek mythology in the book without breaking the storyline!

    Kasey is very strong willed, but she has to be with the way that she was raised. She is also very open minded which is part of the reason she decided to study abroad.

    Dion is amazing. and so are his brothers for the most part. I love the way that they except Kasey into their lives and the way they stay true to who they are!

    I gave this book a 4 star rating because of the slow start. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for something different and don't give up if you struggle at first I am so glad I struggled through the first few chapter because it turned into an amazing book.

    Charming story with a unique and interesting spin on religion and some of history's more famous mythological legends. It grabbed my attention from the very beginning and the characters were so endearing it would be hard not to like them! It was a little difficult to follow the dialog change between characters in some parts but that didn't take away from the flow of the book. Even though there were definitely some more tense moments overall it was a light and easy read and definitely worth picking up.

    Great new YA!

    In this first book of the series, Burgess seamlessly integrates Greek mythology, Christian folklore, and modern atheism in an interesting and entertaining YA adventure.  Starting a little slow, the author gives the reader time to know and grow attached to the characters and their diverse and sometimes mysterious backgrounds.
    The main cast of characters nods slightly to another very popular YA series, but this story is original and engaging. With Spain providing a beautiful backdrop, the plot progresses from an unlikely romance, through jaw-dropping revelations, to an action packed climax that hints at what is surely to come in the next books in the series.


    *I was provided a copy of the book by the BTS eMag for purpose of an honest review. I was not compensated for this review- all conclusions are my own responsibility.

    Great Read!

    Really enjoyed this first book in the Trilogy. Hope Mrs. Burgess does a whole series on the other brothers. Read the first book in the spring and will be re-reading before the next book comes out in the next month.

    Men of the Cave

    This book has a lot of heart. The premise is interesting. I enjoyed the setting as well. It's a little on the short side but with book 2 in the works, we won't have long to wait.

    Captivating!! I really enjoyed the book. Once I started reading it I couldn't stop. I wish that book 2 and 3 where out already. A book that can be enjoyed by anyone. I strongly recommend it.
