After accidentally unleashing the gods from their captivity on Olympus, Helen must find a way to re-imprison them without starting a devastating war. But the gods are angry, and their thirst for blood already has a body count.
To make matters worse, the Oracle reveals that a diabolical Tyrant is lurking among them, which drives a wedge between the once-solid group of friends. As the gods use the Scions against one another, Lucas’s life hangs in the balance. Still unsure whether she loves him or Orion, Helen is forced to make a terrifying decision, for war is coming to her shores.
Review:Okay I am torn between extreme depression and joy at the ending of the series. I mean, I loved the realism of it – power corrupts, and it is only normal for the ones closest to us to see the change and fear it when power is handed to us. And seeing friendships fall apart, but not quite, makes it all the more painful.
Because Matt. And Claire. And Ariadne.
And Cassandra, and Orion, and Daphne, and Hecter and Andy.
And of course, Lucas and Helen.
I want to go into depth. I do. But I am overwhelmed and lost and just – this was such a fascinating journey to go on, and I am grateful that I had the opportunity to read such a wonderful tale.
