Divine Uprising by Rachel Van Dyken
The fallen were never named, therefore we go by our human names, names given to us by people who use to worship us. I’m Athena, one thing you need to know about me? I hate having to protect the human race, but my job as Seeker asks me to do just that—so that one day, I can earn a spot in heaven.
My father is the leader of the Phantoms, so I’m pretty sure that the archangels think of me as a flight risk, maybe that’s why they gave me the most gorgeous and annoying partner in all of Halceyon, Adonis.
His kisses give me strength, his presence soothes my soul—but our love, is completely forbidden.
There is a war coming, and now that the Titans have been released, it’s been brought to my front door. One thing is for certain—I’m going to have to make a choice, and I’m not sure I have the strength to make the right one, not anymore. Not after meeting Seth, not after my best friend’s betrayal, and not after I meet my father face to face and learn the truth—I may be exactly like him.
I was literally swept away into this awesome world that Rachel Van Dyken has created! This book has it all: Action, romance, good versus evil...what more could you want? Oh, I know...hot looking guys in all their perfection! I loved how tough Athena was and how perfect and good-looking all of the characters were -- and for good reason since they are all angels, fallen or some super race. Athena was a great lead character: she was strong, she could hold her own and she wasn't simpering (bonus!) Adonis, I loved him! He kept me smiling throughout the book. Seth takes the cake though. He was part bad boy, wanted to be a good guy and so darn charming! Man, how could Athena stand being around such hot guys all the time? I guess it was her lot in life :)
Overall this was a fast and easy read for me. I was hooked from the start and couldn't put it down until the finish. Rachel Van Dyken beautifully weaves together the story of the Creation, Greek mythology and fairy-tale creatures into one fantastic book! The ending left me wanting more, a lot more. Yet I know there is another book, so I am trying to be content. If you like books about angels or Greek mythology then you will LOVE Divine Uprising. Hurry and grab your own copy, you won't be disappointed!
I received a copy of this book for free. This is my honest review.
Rating: Clean in the romance department
