Gifted power over life and death, Lysandros has spent millennia in the underworld, listless and alone. The youngest child of Hades and Persephone, he’s been sheltered from the threats in the world above.
Theo Ward hasn’t been so lucky. After watching his mother wither away, he’d do almost anything to have her back. When a messenger appears at the Banneker College of Magic and offers the young professor a chance to save her, Theo can’t pass it up, even if it means going straight into the underworld and dragging her home. But Theo gets more than he bargained for when he crosses paths with the prince of Hades.
Set against the king of Olympus, they must shed their past burdens and learn to trust in each other, so they can face down a storm that threatens to wipe the nation’s capital off the map.
4 out of 5 (very good)
Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!
These were new to me authors and I am now a fan. They did a wonderful job creating a dynamic and interesting world and characters. The story was well written and kept me entertained. Both characters were very well written and fleshed out. Theo was so wonderfully sweet and pure. I really like how cool and calm he was, he didn't get over dramatic when crazy things happened. Lysandros was a wonderful counterpart to Theo. He was more reserved then Theo, very much a product of his surroundings. The interactions between the two main characters felt real and believable.
I can't wait for more of this series. There were parts that I got lost a little bit, but that may be due to my lack of Greek god knowledge. Overall it was a very well done story and I'll be on the lookout for the next one.

Sam Burns wrote her first fantasy epic with her best friend when she was ten. Like almost any epic fiction written by a ten year old, it was awful. She likes to think she’s improved since then, if only because she has better handwriting now.
If she’s not writing, she’s almost certainly either reading or lost down a Wikipedia rabbit hole while pretending to research for a novel.
