I liked it. Really enjoyed the twist on greek mythology

The story started off really strongly. Unknown assailant, mysterious birth, unknown potential powers. The concept is really cool too, turning the hurricane into an opportunity to release the city and make it a paranormal safehouse of sorts. The plot falls apart a little bit with the introduction on the love interest, and when she faces off against the goddess. It's a decent story, worth reading.

A very unique book. The goddess Athena is evil and the creatures you would think would be evil aren't. The characters were amazing. Each one had their own personality and they were all described excellently. I hope the next book is even better than this one.

An amazing and suspenseful book. It'll keep you wanting more!! really good should read!!! #imagineteencontest

I actually enjoyed this book. There are some swearing, violence, and a bit of sexual content but other than those things, it was good. It was really unique in some ways, and I loved the original ideas that the author threw into. I was a bit disappointed however, when my favourite greek mythology goddess was evil, but I liked how Kelly Keaton described her. If I didn't like Athena, then the book would've made me hate her more. She portrayed and described the characters well, and she makes you hate or like them. I will be reading the next book for sure.

This book was good... at the beginning. It just got really cheesy. It was sorta lame. I picked it up thinking it would be a good supernatural book but it was the complete opposite. A crummy love story Twilight BS. Don't bother with it.

I loved how discriptive the author was. also how a girl was the stronger character. it had some romance and action at the same time.

I think the New Orleans setting was a good choice and the different characters made an interesting world that I'm sure we'll learn more about in sequels. It was great to have a strong heroine for a change.

This book had so much potential and could have been amazing had it not been so rushed. I felt as though everything happened so suddenly, and the storyline was not developed enough. It was a very short book but it was intriguing enough.
