OMG!!!!!! Just finished another great read and had to share it with all of you! I was contacted on Goodreads by an author who needed reviews for her book and i jumped at the chance! She expressed with me that it isnt like most Young Adult/Fantasy/Supernatural book and i thought, “Okay, I can roll with this!” And roll I did ladies and gentlemen! Hybrid By Venus Morales was a great read! Perfect for all mythology fans!
Ari is the daughter of Ares, the God of War. Half goddess and half Phoenician, she is raised by her father in secrecy until her 18th birthday, when he is forced to return to Olympus.
She chooses not follow her father, and decides to venture out into the mortal realm. There, Ari crosses paths with the archangel Julius, who bears a message from a seer. Ari must return to the Bayou to her late mother’s coven to regain her family crown, she is soon fighting for more than just the crown; she is fighting for her life, and the inner darkness that’s consuming her.
With 7 days to prepare for her trials and 7 days to fight for her life, Ari does the one thing she must do to survive; she forges herself into the weapon she was born to be.
What wouldn’t you do to save those you love? How much of yourself are you willing to sacrifice to save the mortal realm, the heavens and Olympus?
So my absolute favorite part of this book is how relatable Venus makes the main character! Ari is logical and realistic and it is so hard to find characters like that in books these days! I know people will find it hard to believe that a paranormal book or its characters can be realistic but Venus makes it happen! I laughed quite a bit through this book and wanted to cry when it was over because, well, it was over! I can not wait for the next installment!
The characters were well built and carried throughout the story! Unlike books in the mythology genre the gods are actually playing a bigger roll than just being mentioned and the reason our Heroine is dealing with her problems, which is HUGE! They have a side to the story as well! It isnt just limited to just Gods and Goddesses though! Its demons, vamps and Arch Angels. I think it works for me because im more of a If-one-thing-exists-then-they-all-must-exist type of person!
