You know when you see that free book that also is centered around the place you grew up? You almost feel that you have to read it. Like you're already thinking in your head that this can't be good, probably got all the details wrong.

I totally went into this book thinking like that. I admit it freely, because in my mind it's already had two strikes against it. Number 1: it's free, and lets face it... there are some pretty bad free books out there. Number 2: it's based in Detroit, and for someone

Summary: Amid the 80,000 abandoned buildings in Detroit, a battle shrouded in secrecy is brewing. The Greek Olympian, Ares, runs the city as his own personal Coliseum while Apollo and Hermes struggle to shield teens from his deadly hobbies. Ares endless supply of gladiators is all the more accessible because the abandoned buildings of Detroit have become the flame for moths of ravers, vandals, scavengers, and urban explorers. The key to the entire conflict, Calliope, is just hoping for a fresh s ...more

This one is tough to review. I like the concept enough to give that 5 stars. Characters pulled out Greek mythology and plopped into modern Detroit as vampir.... err vampyres, using humans but needing them. It somehow works.

The negative here is that this book is in desperate need of an editor, even if that is just the author re-reading it really really really slowly and re-editing it. Simple errors were left in. I tried to ignore them but, yeah, it started to get on my nerves. Things like "are"

This book was fantastic. It was very interesting take mythology. The Greek Gods are very swoon worthy especially Rafe. I loved the snarky attitude of the main character, Calli. I can't wait to read more.

This was a pretty interesting book, though slow moving at some points. I had to see how things turned out, though and will likely read book two to see if Calli's first choice remains as her choice. Three Greek gods want you. What a life. I did enjoy Calli's brand of snarkiness. I like snarky people. However, it did not take long for me to become irritated with her clever way of cursing without actually cursing. Honestly, I can't understand why she held on to her relationship with Thrace for so l ...more

Calli is seemingly your average, normal girl... but she's not, really. You see, Calli is short for Calliope, as in one of the nine Greek Muses! Calli is a Muse, she just doesn't know it yet. However, there was a very different take on the mythology in this book, so the Muses aren't like the traditional Muses in Ancient Greece. I love Greek mythology and I'm all for different/unique takes on it, but this one just didn't do it for me. I mean, the gods are portrayed a

Rafe Hermes job is to protect Calli at all costs necessary. Rafe is very protective of Calli in a variety of ways yet he is falling for Calli which could cause problems fo ...more

I loved the book, but one thing bothered me, right in the very beginning of the book
"....the three most powerful Olympians in Greek Mythology- Apollo (God of Truth and Prophecy), Hermes (Messenger of the Gods and Protector of Humans), and Ares (God of Warfare and Bloodlust)."
....NO!!! Anyone with any knowledge of Greek myths knows this isn't true! The trifecta is the most powerful, meaning Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades! They mention Zeus so many times and about needing his consent or whatever and

Once I started reading this book I couldn't't put it down until I was finished. I really liked the inventive curse words and the main character's nastiness and spunk made me laugh. I love reading about mythology and this book explained it(mythology) without making it seem dry or boring which is a huge accomplishment considering how confusing it can get. Only problem is that it's supposed to be part of a trilogy and I've been waiting for years now for the next installment. Please release it soon ...more

Don't judge the book by the cover. I almost didn't read this just because I was judging the cover... Lesson learned again. Even after reading it, I still feel the cover is lame, I understand the meaning of it, but still....
It was a good read, and I really enjoyed the links to be able to see the buildings that she was describing.
I look forward to the rest of the series, but hope the word FLOCK is only in there less than 5 times.

Idk if I should give this book a 2 or a 3 so a 2.5 it is.

The concept was great and I enjoyed the story itself but...

the main character annoyed me sometimes :/ and this book is in great need of an editor -_-

For the concept alone I would give this book a 4 or 5 but the lack of editting and the main character at points I had to give this a 2 (will 2.5... lol)

I'll most likely read the next one just to see what happens for like I said I did like the story itself
Not worth finishing. The language is terrible, the writing is aggravating to read with all the paranthetical inserts that bear no real relevance to the story, and the heroine comments on each article of her clothing, her every thought and action, and talks about her own personality. Even at the cost of free, this is a waste of time and space on my Kindle.

This was a easy fun read. I liked the aspect of the Greek muses, gods, and demi-gods. I thought it was a great concept. I will also read book two since I have to know if Calli is Rafe's muse. i really hope that is the outcome.

This was written in 2011 and is supposed to be a trilogy, but book 2 has not been published yet. I wanted to see if the 2nd book would pick up the pace

Loved a new twist on teen fiction... No vampires, no half-angels, but gods... Nice plot and very entertaining. I could not stop reading it once I started!

Started off only mediocre and steadily got worse. It just tended to drag. I found the main protagonist to be boring and a little too perfect-to the point of unrelatability.

When I was about 12, one of my plane friends (I am talking about you Mindy) and I put pen to paper and created our very first story. Unfortunately, we buried it in a time capsule that I have never been able to find again:( But I loved creating and going to places that I hadn't gotten to experience in my small town. This is what also attracted to me to my life long passion for reading.

“they felt like they were informed. It was a fine line--too much information led to more interrogation and too little information leads to major snooping. Thrace believed that I had developed the rare ability to express something while revealing nothing. However, I couldn’t shake the feeling that a sorcerer with laughing hazel eyes might have the ability to see beyond all my fine lines. I smiled at that whimsical thought as I finished my pot roast and parental interrogation.   Chapter 2: Mortal Combat   I woke up groggy because I set my alarm for a half hour earlier than usual to get ready to work out. I don’t know why I did that. Ok. I might know why I did that, but 6:00am was too early for rational thought. I kept my outfit simple with black yoga pants and a retro Offspring tee. It was much more difficult to get my thick auburn hair to calm down after a night of restless sleep. Luckily, I didn’t get any zits overnight which would have been just my luck. After some leave-in conditioner and some shine spray, I hoped my hair no longer looked like a bird’s nest. I headed downstairs just in time to see my dad coming from the kitchen with his coffee, my Mt. Dew, and Zone bar. Hello, my name is Calliope, and I am an addict. My drug is caffeine. I like my caffeine cold usually in the fountain pop variety—Mt. Dew in the morning and Diet Dr. Pepper in the afternoon. I like the ice and carbonation, but in the morning on the way to work out, I’ll take what I can get. I thanked my dad for my version of breakfast as we walked to the car. He only grunted his reply. We slid into the white Taurus and headed to the YMCA. I actually started to get nervous, as we got closer. We were at the Y before I was mentally prepared. I sighed and lumbered out of the car. As we walked in and headed toward opposite locker rooms, dad announced, “Meet you back here in an hour, Calli.” 0 likes
