“I found that my love for this type of mythology and genre was restored after reading this book. It was exciting, endearing, and most of all, full of action. I can’t recommend this series enough.”
~ Under the Covers

I’m a big fan of Jennifer Estep’s Urban Fantasy series however I haven’t tried her Young Adult novels yet. This series is technically a spin-off of her original Mythos Academy series but even though I haven’t read all those books yet, I didn’t have any trouble at all falling into this world.

Estep is really good at her worldbuilding. I love all the worlds that she has created, but this one might actually be one of my favorites. It’s filled with various types of warriors from Spartan’s like our main heroine, Rory or other ones like Valkyries and Vikings. Like I said, this series really has it all and it kind of reminds me of a mix of 300 and Clash of the Titans. It’s really amazing stuff and I think when you pair it when the young voices of Young Adults, it really makes for an interesting combination.

Obviously a lot has already happened at the start of the book since it continues a bit later from where the previous serious finished. However, it’s not difficult at all to connect with Rory. She’s your average teen who is undergoing a whole new set of emotions as she makes her way through her school year. The most interesting fact is that she isn’t well-liked and the big reason for that is actually a spoiler for the first series so I don’t want to mention it here in case you’re still making your way through it. But I love what Estep has done with Rory’s backstory. It makes her a very interesting character and I found that my love for this type of mythology and genre was restored after reading this book. It was exciting, endearing, and most of all, full of action. I can’t recommend this series enough.

After reading this, I am definitely going to be going back to read the original series. It’s been a long time since I was excited about a author and series like this, but I’m sure the other books will be just as fun and energetic as this one. I can’t wait.
