Story Line Overview:
Maisey Parker is a typical girl struggling to make it through life. She is a spark in the darkness, the fun of the party. At least, she was before she released Cronus, the oldest titan, from his prison.
Cronus was locked away by Zeus and the other Gods long ago. All it took was one drop of blood from Maisey Parker to release him from his realm of imprisonment. Now, both Maisey and Cronus’s lives are tied together forcing them to remain close…..like within 10 feet close or they would both feel unimaginable pain.
Revenge is on Cronus’s mind and Maisey gets pulled right into it. But as fate would have it, Zeus found Cronus first and found interest in Maisey. Cronus has to find his old friends to help him along the way, many of which used to be his girlfriends—to Maisey’s discontent.
Maisey accidentally released the nine deadly sins and destroys Pandora’s box. Now the sins are out, and it is up to Cronus and Maisey to get them back. With an unlikey ally, Maisey finds out her lineage is more complex than she knew. In an attempt to save the world, Maisey must become the vessel of redemption, while fighting to protect Cronus from the God’s wrath.
The war between the titans and the gods ended a long time ago. Now the titans are coming back, one by one, each with a mission to imprison the sins that plague the earth.
I loved the twists and turns this story holds. The comical remarks and hashtags kept me reeling with laughter. The relationship between Cronus and Maisey was innocent yet romantic at the same time. Her perusings about life and her feelings were very real.
The world where Titans and Gods exists is magical. I could imagine most of the places within my mind. I loved the personalities of the characters and how they interacted with each other.
I would recommend this story to anyone who loves Cursed by the Gods Series, A Court of Thorns and Roses, The Lux Series.
