I’ve enjoyed all types of books RJ Scott has written and this one was no exceptions. To me very different from the normal I’m used to, but extremely entertaining.

***Spoiler***

I just want to put out there, because I’ve said it and it’s fact for me. Death of a main character is a automatic turn off. However, when the love interest is killed in the beginning of the book, I didn’t feel he was a MC for the simple fact that we were told that the feeling’s were one sided, that he wished he could be more. Now, if the author had waited and killed him off later, then maybe my feeling’s would have changed.

***end spoiler***

The primes of this story is a unique tale of the Greek gods, what happens when a child is born that was foreseen to come, the family that was gifted with looking after the child/adult and the cult that wants the child/adult for there own. Throw in the military, the upper crust of British society and a few more people and you’ve got quiet a tale about intrigue, myths, legends and one guy that just wants to be normal.

The dynamic between Alex and Luke, both know they want this, know they shouldn’t couldn’t. But in the end that pull is too great.

Even the secondary cast, the chemistry between them, the way they mess together, helping, all as one unit.

The way we, the reader gets pulled into the puzzle of working out what the symbols mean, who’s bad, who’s good, and who will survive.  Just brilliant
