For fans of the Oracle of Delphi series...and for those who aren't...

Born into one of the wealthiest families in Ireland, Siobhan Law has status, privilege, and a secret: The Greek gods of Olympus and their kingdom in the clouds are real, and her family acts as one of their agents on Earth.

When the beautiful immortal celeste Liam Argyros shows up claiming to have come to Earth to deal in the affairs of the divine, Siobhan finds herself unable to resist his charms. New to the game of passion and seduction, she quickly ends up in over her head, sinking deeper with every attempt Liam makes to win her over.

But Liam’s divine mission is far more complex than she ever imagined and nothing is truly as it seems. Because Liam has a secret of his own: He is Apollo, Olympian god of the Sun, and his mission will never be complete until he has claimed Siobhan’s heart forever.

WARNING: For readers 18+ only. Contains adult language and sexual situations.
The Greek gods are real - living in a realm called Myth.  They have human agents on Earth, families that help them do their business in the "real" world.  The members of these families are called Influentials; they have power, pretige, and loads of wealth.  Siobhan Law is the daughter of one of these families.  Protected and cherished, it is her destiny to marry the son of a family and run their household.  Too bad, Siobhan has more modern ideas of how she wants to live her life.

While attending a practice for the orchestra (she's first chair violin), a new musician shows up and challenges her for her place.  Liam Argyros is beautiful - too beautiful and Siobhan instantly knows that he's not an ordinary mortal.  What she doesn't know is that he's really the god Apollo come to earth to win her heart.

Their relationship is a strained one.  Siobhan hates that he lied to her about who is, and it repeatedly come up (a little too much).  They are on agian and off again throughout the book, but their feelings for eash other always seem to trump their problems.  Parts of their relationship were very touching and sweet, and parts were very overbearing and I was surprised Siobhan put up with any of it.

It ends with a bit of action that was very nicely placed and wrapped up many of the loose ends in the story and brings in some more of the mythology.  With a happy for now ending, it still had enough resolution to leave me satisfied, but enough untold to keep me wondering "what next".

  1. Great review, Jasmyn! I love books that end in a way that doesn't feel like just an intro or with too many loose ends, but also leaves a chance for a sequel. This sounds like a pretty good read and I love Greek mythology books! :)
