About the Author

Astrid Arditi has studied at Hogwarts, ridden a dragon, swam with mermaids and flown to the moon. Recently, she traveled to Mount Olympus...
She leads a double life: one of words and whimsy; the other one chasing her two young kids around the playground and kissing away booboos.
She's a spy, a princess, a unicorn, a wife, a mother and an author. Life is never dull in her messy home in Brooklyn, or in her dreams where she escapes as often as she can.
She writes from experience, of course. You may not believe it, but everything in her books has actually happened to her...even if only in her imagination.

*I received this book from Netgalley. My review is completely my own opinions and thoughts.* I loved this book! I'm a big fan of Greek Mythology and love stories that incorporate and of the gods or myths in their stories. The way the gods and Olympus is incorporated in this series is very unique and creative and I enjoyed it very much. This story felt like a mix of Hunger Games and Percy Jackson, so if you are a fan of either, I would definitely recommend this series.  The main character, Hope, is a very interesting character and although some of her reactions kinda made me roll my eyes, I felt she stayed true to herself and had very good growth. I also loved Kieron, although he sort of seemed the dark brooding type that is typical, but his powers and backstory was interesting enough to make me fall in love with him.  The action and description in this series was done very well. There was always something gin on which made the book hard to put down. I read it in only two days and almost couldn't go to sleep until I learned what happened next. The only problem I had with the book is how Hades was portrayed. That is a personal opinion and not something I would ever base my rating on, but I just wanted to point out that darkness and death doesn't mean evil... A lot of people believe that and it gets old very quick. The author made the gods her own, and I really enjoyed that and hope that my followers check out the book and read it too!

The book was easy to read. If you like Greek mythology, The Hungar Games series, and teenage drama, then this is the book for you. I can't wait for book 2!

I'm half Greek and grew up listening to and reading about Greek Mythology with my Mom. Needless to say, I really wanted to read this book! I was thrilled when I received an ARC and literally couldn't put it down! Hope Diaz's story really resonated with me. She's a wonderfully written character with a good heart who is not perfect, but always tried to do the right thing. I love Gabriel and was happy with the turn of events at the end of the book. I look forward to the second book of the series (2019 seems so far off to wait!!) to see what further trials, tribulations and relationship developments happen. I have a soft spot for Amy and hope that we get to see her soon. Excellent character development and descriptions. I love the setting! This book didn't read like Young Adult. I was captivated by it in the first chapter and can't wait to see what happens next!

What a read !! Enthralling and Absorbing from the very beginning. This author has such a creative imagination and an absolutely enormous talent to be able to put her thoughts into words, giving you an original and realistic feeling storyline. The world building and changing plots was just like taking a breath. The story was told through the main female lead, who started off in a life that was normal but challenging. Then she was transported into a world that shouldn’t exist, and one she didn’t belong in. This storyline is full of danger, mystery, suspense, grief, greed and overwhelming mythology that is not as it seems. Where there is Light, there will always be darkness. Will an innocent love, be enough to keep her whole, or will it tear them both apart. There are so many twists and inconceivable heartbreaking moments for all the characters within this book. It started off as a great start to a new series, then it became a mind-blowing one, with a cliffhanger that will have you craving and hoping book,2. Won’t be far off. Astrid Arditi, well done ! You smashed it !!

This was so amazing, brilliant, fantastic. If you like Greek gods and a heroine fighting for what she believes in this is a book you HAVE to read. It was impossible to put down and if I hadn’t have to sleep I would have read it in one sitting. I liked Hope, even if she can be a little too good sometimes. She loves her mom and would do anything to save her and when she learns that the Gods will grant her one wish, when winning the tournament, she knows she has to give it her best - for her mom. The Gods.... Well, not really likeable. It was more like I hated them a little more with every chapter I read. And the grand prize in being hated, takes Hades. Unsurprisingly, he is the one I wanted to kill myself. Or maybe trap him in the hell he creates for the bad guys to repent for their sins. The only ray of hope between the gods and divinities is Kieron, son of Hades and Persephone. I can see, why Hope would be attracted to him, it’s hard not to swoon. So, there is a lot of heartache, death and emotions going on and I wouldn’t want to spoil the fun in revealing more. But I urge everyone, READ THIS BOOK! Now I have to wait for the next one and it’s going to be really hard.
