What I Thought: This book is very well written. As mentioned above, I was pulled into the story, instantly, by the excellent design on the cover. It is sleek, inviting and exciting.  I have always been a fan of mythology, and this book takes the gods to a whole new level. I love the incorporation of them into a modern day story, and believe that the author seamlessly blended current day with the dissension that was always seen between certain gods. I like that the battles were brought forward because, as I see it, if they were feuding when they were first spoken of, and they are still alive, they should still be feuding.  I thought the gods were all given personalities and physical descriptions that matched their classic characters very well. I really felt that Apollo was perfectly described as I would see him in my mind.  I liked that the attraction between Apollo and Heather meant that she was thrust into the battle, afters eons of it's existence, to be a part of the epic finale. She, unlike a lot of female characters, especially American based mains, was a very bright, intuitive, and strong person. She was perfect for exacting greatness in a time of need, and really matched well with the arrogance, yet understated caring nature of Apollo. The two create the perfect main character couple for this story.  The pace of the story was very good. I like that it had moments of fast paced action blended with the occasional slower paced detail-building moment. I thought the amount of detail and back story etched into the pages was done very well, really creating a link between the gods we know and the story we read.  OVERALL: I think this is an excellent new take on the stories many of us love. The amalgamation of gods and mortals, in a modern day war, was brilliant and it was executed perfectly. I would highly recommend this read to anyone YA to adult.  I hope there are a lot more books to come from Alex Manea.
