About the Book
Curses and queens. Pirates and kings. Gods and magic. The final saga of a cursed queen, a vengeful Greek god, and a dazzling kingdom in the balance.
After barely surviving thieving, bloodthirsty pirates and a harrowing quest at sea to retrieve her stolen treasure, Kora finds readjusting to palace life just as deadly. Kora’s people openly turn against her, threatening to overthrow her as heir to the throne—a cursed queen who has angered Dionysus. When Dionysus puts out a challenge to kill the girl with the golden touch and burn down her kingdom, it’s not just her future on the throne in danger. Kora’s life and entire kingdom are now on contract.
As bold and brave as ever, Kora sets out to find Dionysus, the very person who is trying to kill her, on the mysterious disappearing island of Jipper. Kora has no other choice. If she wants to save her kingdom and have any chance at reversing her father’s curse, she will have to enter into a deadly game with Dionysus, the greatest trickster the world, or the underworld, has ever seen.
Greek gods and pirates?! *suddenly becomes gif of Hilary Duff singing “This is what dreams are made of”* While this book is the second in the series, it can be read as a standalone. BUT, I mean, it’s always better to read the first anyways! And that just means you get to buy even more books! Plus these books are fun! And we need fun right now!
Now, I’m ALWAYS happy to see some Greek representation in books (even if we tend to only come about when we’re talking about Greek gods, but at least it’s something!), but these books are definitely *loosly* based off of Greek mythos. It’s there, we’re told it’s there, but it’s the authors own take on it. So don’t go in expecting the full on hot mess that are the Greek gods. It’s more of a watered down younger version of them. BUT: it’s still there and I still thrive for that!
Like I said in the beginning, this is a really fun read. There is a lot of action and adventure and the characters are easy to follow. And right now with all of the stress of day to day life this is exactly what I need! I want to just be able to sit down with a book and not want to set it down because I’m enjoying the read.
