What I Liked: 1) I like the three sisters. As they started to get to know each other in Sweet Venom you could see relationships begin to develop, but throughout Sweet Shadows their relationship becomes more cemented, and they begin to care for each other as sisters, instead of strangers who happen to look alike. 2) Um, there was a unicorn in this book. I don't know that I have ever encountered a unicorn in another book other than Harry Potter. But this one talked and wasn't being eaten by Voldy. How cool is that!? Did there need to be a unicorn? Probably not. Did it add to the sheer awesomeness? Yes. 3) The time spent in the Abyss - this was a whole new setting for us as Gretchen dove head first into the unknown to save Nick. I wasn't expecting where that storyline went, but I'm interested to see where it picks up again in the next book. 5) There's something about Thane...Grace's mysterious older brother who has been mentioned repeatedly in these books finally makes an appearance near the end of Sweet Shadows. And there is something about him that I can't quite figure out. Just as we are beginning to make sense of things, Miz Childs has thrown even more mystery at us. What I Didn't Like: I was surprised to find that it took a little time for me to feel invested in this story. For how much I loved the first book, this one was a little flat, particularly in the beginning. I was seriously worried that it was going to become a "Second Book Trap," just filling fodder until we can get to book three. But finally about a fourth of the way in, something clicked, and I started to get into it. Overall Thoughts: After a bit of a rocky start, Sweet Shadows sunk into the story and started pulling the characters together. There was so much going on for the three sisters that it seemed almost crazy that anyone could keep up with all of it. But with the addition of some new and mysterious characters, plus a completely new setting (where I'm betting we'll visit again in book 3), and a more stable sistership, Sweet Shadows became a fun addition to the series.

I am fond of reading novels that evolve Greek Mythology, especially if authors write the story real well. I borrowed this ARC from a friend who attended the book event in Chicago. I couldn't wait for the release of this book in September. I was so anxious to find out the answers to the mysteries that Ms. Tera had left unanswered in the first book. Well, this book picked up from where it ended in Sweet Venom. Still narrated by Greer, Grace, and Gretchen. The triplets had finally agreed to battle the monsters and established their roles as guardians when their kins were being abducted by either the monster in the abyss or the Gods in Olympus. The monsters wanted the gate be opened forever while the Greek Gods opposed the idea. The key generation was the balance of the two realms in war. As usual, the Gods were still in conflict with one another--like what happened in Trojan war (Athena and Hera siding Achilles, and Zeus and Apollo aiding Hector). Same in this book, but the author kept the suspense of whose Gods were aiding the monsters and plotting to kill the gate keepers to prevent the seal from breaking. Nick had more appearance in this second installment since he's Gretchen's love interest. But my attention was caught by the potential romance of Greer and Thane as if they're fated to one another. I can't wait for the third book. Sadly, I have to wait until next year. :-(

Great stoy! The book started exactly where the last ended, which of coarse I loved.Grace,Gretchen,and Greer are amazing individuals,and strong sisters. I love how these sisters show it is possible to work with one another.In a journy of myth,and monsters,well let's say it is enough to give you a thrill. I would recommend this book to anyone that is looking for an adventure basing on greek mythology,magic,monsters,and strong female roles. Note this book does have mild violence.
