Save herself; save the world. Humanity may be screwed.
To say that Sophie Bloom is at the top of her game with one only week until Spring Equinox and the final showdown with Zeus and Hades would be, well, lying. The Goddess of Spring feels more like the Goddess of Bzzz, Thanks For Playing than the savior of humanity. And could her relationships be any more messed up?
Sophie is convinced that things can’t get any worse than crawling back to her mother Demeter and begging for help. But she’s about to find out how very wrong she is.
It’s a race against time for Sophie to implement the big battle strategy in the YA romantic comedy/Greek mythology finale My Life From Hell. A perfect read for everyone who loves sassy girls who kick butt and the bad boys that infuriate them.

I’m so sad to see this series go. I love all of the characters, and was so happy with the ending. Sophie seems to find herself in crazy situations. I love that she’s set on ending this feud with Zeus and Hades, but sometimes it’s hard to do so without things getting ugly. I think Sophie is the character that grows the most in this trilogy. She has so much to learn about herself, and her place in the world. I love seeing her relationships change with the people closest to her. Some of them are for the better, and some aren’t so great. This is one cast of characters I’ll definitely miss. I don’t want to say a lot because it could potentially spoil the book. Just know that there is betrayal, shock, heartbreak, tears, and the fight of their life. So much goodness wrapped up into this last installment.
I just LOVE this series! I can't even stress how much you guys need to read it! If you're a fan of mythology and snarky, sassy teenagers these are the books for you! Darling has done such an awesome job of transforming the Persephone myth and giving it some flair! Sophie Bloom is by far one of my favorite heroines- she is snarky, fun, and completely kickass! Her crew is made of awesome and I loved how much voice Darling gave to her secondary characters. Theo, Fee, Hannah, Pierce, and Kai all make up a rather motley crew, but they are essential to the development of this series. Their added humor and loyalty is what makes them so memorable and I wish I had a group of friends like them! And then there's Kai. Prince of the Underworld. Bane of Sophie's existence. Love of her life. KAI. I can't even. I love their relationship so much. Kai is without a doubt, 100% bad boy, cause you know- PRINCE of the UNDERWORLD. But OMG- the boy is not without a heart. And I love how he and Sophie can't get enough of one another one minute and then ready to throw down the next. They have this magnetic attraction- they can't stay away from each other, no matter what the other has done, and while it sounds frustrating- their back and forth banter is what really makes their relationship awesome. Did I mention all the kissing? Oh yeah! There's plenty of it in this final book for all you romantics! Time is running out for Sophie and the gang. They are days away from the spring equinox and in turn, the end of the world as we know it. Hades and Zeus have teamed up to rid the world of humanity and Sophie is caught in the crosshairs. It is up to her to stop them, make things right with Kai, and figure out where the ritual is to be held.... no pressure, right? We see some old enemies, as well as meet some new... friends? in this one. We also get to take a trip down to the Underworld, which is always exciting. One of my favorites was Oizys. She is totally awesome and I love seeing her and Sophie interact with one another. They have that back and forth banter her and Kai do and I just love seeing all the snark and sass! I obviously don't want to spoil anything, but I feel Darling did the final book in her series justice. I love how everything came together and she did a great job of making sure she resolved all plot points and storylines. There were a few moments I felt my heart constrict and I was cursing the gods above for how manipulative and malicious Felicia (Sophie's stepmother) is. Ugh. That woman. I love the message behind the prophecy. I can't say much- but Sophie really sees herself in a different light by the end and it is really empowering. Have I convinced you yet to give this awesome series a try? Let's put it this way: You get a snarky heroine, a sexy, swoon-worthy love interest, lots of kissing, a great group of friends that will make you laugh out loud, a new twist on mythology, AND did I mention LOTS OF KISSING?
What a terrific end to this trilogy! Watching Sophie bloom (pun intended) into not only the goddess she was destined to be, but the human she grew to be and love and accept, was fantastic. The road for Sophie was not easy in the least. Boy did I feel for the girl! Talk about kicking a puppy when she's down! She just got tossed things at her left and right, but through it all she held her own. And she not only held it together, but she was funny and real and totally put it all out there. I loved her! This book is action-packed! There was never a dull moment. And it wasn't just filler. The plot progressed and moved; the storyline built and expanded; the intensity fortified. Of course, we know the spring equinox is coming and Sophie and Kai have a huge task ahead of them, but that is just one piece to all the crazy things that happen in this book. There is just layer built upon layer, going in directions I didn't expect. Tellulah truly created a fantastic, gripping read here. While Sophie certainly grew the most, our other characters were not ignored. We learn more about Festos, more about Theo, and meet some great newbies as well. Hannah and Pierce are there to represent, and of course Zeus, Hades, and Demeter get in on the action. And all these individuals surround Sophie in different ways, giving the story so much fullness and dimension and... awesomeness. Oh, and then there's this guy named Kai. Remember him? Yeah, he's back, even after the crazy end of book 2. Even Mr. Underworld gets revealed a bit more, and he too must grow and become more than he ever was pre-Sophie. And I loved how he learned and loved. The character development was wonderful. Overall, this was a fantastic read and the perfect ending to a great trilogy. I think this was the best book of the trilogy. And it was the best representative of the young adult genre as well. The first two had more mature elements scattered throughout them, making me want to up their level to new adult at times. But this one was wonderfully YA. I will miss this series and these characters, but I look forward to more books by Tellulah Darling.
