This is the second book in The Symbol of Hope series and I really enjoyed it. In fact, I enjoyed it more than the first one and, in all honesty, more than I thought I would. See, I'm not a fan of love triangles and Kasey and I, well, we would never be friends. She's just sometimes SO annoyingly immature, especially for someone who's supposed to be a grown-up 19 year old, who had all of these responsibilities since she was young, including helping to raise her brother. When she is trying to portr ...more

*Caution, slight spoilers in this review, PLEASE don't click unless you've read the book.

Jar of Pandora was a nice follow up to Men of the Cave. There was the expected- and for me, A LOT of the unexpected.

After the events of Men of the Cave, Kasey is now returning home with Dion and his brother by his side, and BOY was I excitied to see how Teal and Dion would face each other down. (I'm sorry, but I honestly find boys fighting over one girl the most hilarious thing ever, because they do it all

I remember that I really enjoyed Men of the Cave but I felt like this book was very different from the first one. First of all they weren't in Spain anymore and I really liked the Spain part because I'd never been to Spain so reading about it was kind of like traveling there.

Then there was the love triangle. Now I'm not really a fan of love triangles. I think I only really love three love triangles but I kind of felt that the Kasey-Dion-Teal love triangle was not needed. The first half of the bo

Love triumphs God but Destiny trumps all!

Truths and Destiny are discovered in this 2nd book of the Symbol of hope trilogy. The author does an amazing job adding to the plot in this blend of Christianity and Mythology twist leaving the reader hooked on every word, action, and emotional outcome of each battle won.

Kasey and Dion's love is so unconditional even with Kasey's first love "Teal" being thrown in the mix making it a complicated lovers triangle. Kasey is so caring and such a loveable chara

I don't even know where to begin with this book...in a good way. When I finished Men of The Cave, I was excited to see where the next installment would go. And Marisette sure didn't disappoint. I empathized with Kasey's return to the states and her estranged boyfriend. Teal is such a great character and I found myself wishing for a reconciliation the whole time. Without giving too much away, it was nice to see more of the secondary characters in this book and find out more about why Kasey is so ...more
Steph at  Starry Night Book Reviews
Jar of Pandora is a unique blend of Christianity and Greek Myths with a little romance. I fell I love with the first book in the series I love Kasey and Dion’s story. In this second book the story continues and Kasey and Dion are off to America. One of the things I really love about this book is that Dion’s family is so close and they are so funny! I just get a kick out of the twins and some of the things they say and tease Kasey about.

Marisette did a wonderful job writing this book! You take

Gillian (Tattooed Book Review)
This second book in the series would be best read in series order; though some background is provided, the story is certainly much richer knowing the entire plot from the beginning.
One again Burgess takes the reader into her captivating world of Greek mythology and Christianity, set in modern times. This book takes a much darker turn: packed with action, violence, and heart-wrenchingly emotional moments as the characters must face questions of love, life, death, sacrifice, good, and evil.

***** I was gifted a copy of this book for an honest review*****

This book had me turning pages from beginning to end. It made me laugh, want to cry, throw my kindle, and punch the characters. That is the kind of emotion that makes a great book to me. I was so captivated by the characters in this book. It was like I was right there with the characters on this journey.

You get to know Dion, his brothers, and Kasey on a deeper level. In this book these characters go back to The U.S. and you are intr

This book has a unique blend of Christianity and Greek Mythology but it blends so well together. I was so excited to read more of Kasey and Dion since I loved them in the first book so much. But this time they are off to America but not everything goes as planned with different virtues and families get involved.

What I loved most about this is Dion’s family. They are so close and had me laughing so much while reading this book. My other favorite is we get to meet some of the Greek Gods while Kas

I enjoyed this book more than the last. The conflict is much more present and uncomfortable- diverging from its humble romantic origins. The author proves she's not afraid to damage her main characters both physically and emotionally; something that even bestselling authors often avoid.

I only hope that in the future that the author takes more time to show what is unfolding in a scene rather than explaining it through lengthy monologues. I know that sometimes when there's a lot information to di
