If Phoebe Castro can keep her grades up and have another stellar cross-country season, her dream of attending USC with her best friends is only a track scholarship away. She’s made all her plans, so it’s a complete shock when her mom announces she’s marrying a mysterious stranger and moving them half-way around the world—to Greece.
Phoebe’s stuck on a secret island in the Aegean attending the super-exclusive Academy, where her new stepfather is the headmaster and the kids are anything but your average students—they are descendants of the Greek gods, super powers included. That’s right, Greek gods are no myth! If Phoebe thought high school was hard, she knows this is going to be mortal misery.
Securing that scholarship seems like Phoebe’s only ticket out of Greece, but training and maintaining her grades will be grueling, even without a sabotaging stepsister from Hades and a gorgeous guy—what a god!—who just might be her Achilles heel. One thing is for sure—summoning the will to win and find her place among the gods could be Phoebe’s toughest course yet.
I was so excited to read this book, and it did not disappoint. The plot is very interesting and well thought out. the characters are beautifully crafted and I wish I knew some of them and am glad I don't know others.
Phoebe's is a likable main character that has the right level of winyness, which is good because Tera could have made her too winy very easily. Also Griffin was a real mystery and I liked his unpredictability.
The only problem I had was that I felt that I could tell what was going to happen. But I was unsure how it would occur so that was good. Overall pretty good.
Also love the cover!
