Disclaimer: *This book was provided in exchange for an honest review. The review is not manipulated by any means.

I was hooked by the story of the book the moment I finished Chapter 1. I fell in love with the story the moment I was in the middle of the book. I was thirsty for more by the moment I finished it.

It wasn’t like other books where it would grab your attention after reading a couple of chapters. This book actually got me reading for more the moment I was in the middle of Chapter 1. It made it hard to take my eyes off the screen to rest from reading.

I loved the way the author build the story. The way the events turned out and the play on characters. The consistency of turn in events is what got me hooked the most.

The uniqueness of the story made it fun to read. Especially because I’m a fan of the Percy Jackson books and the Mortal Instruments. This book also has those characters with abilities or “curses” but the author didn’t use the ordinary kind of characters instead, she used a brainstormed kind of characters. Especially their ancestral information.

The ending will surely make you want to read the sequel as soon as possible. It will make you want to pre-order the sequel as soon as it is available.

Overall, it was a story that I have taken an interest of. I love the fresh concept that the author used. The characters will sure get you connected to them. If you’re a fan of Rick Riordan or Cassandra Clare, then this book is for you.
