Summary of the Book:
Sixteen-year-old cupid-in-training Kali is in an Olympus-sized mountain of trouble. Rule number one in arrow-toting matchmaking: don’t stick yourself. But accidents happen, and Kali instantly falls hard for her indie rock, bass-playing target, Benicio.
The God of Love is going to kill her. Even if he is her dad.
Being the daughter of Eros isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. For one thing, a girl can get jaded when her parents have the most beautiful and fatalistic love story in history. For another, immortality royally sucks when the Oracle condemns you to eternity in the wrong profession. Do the Gods care that Kali wants to ditch the love stuff and be a muse?
To reclaim her heart and her destiny, Kali is left with no choice but to defy the Gods, tempt the Fates, date the mortal love-of-her-life, and hope she doesn’t lose her best friend, Hector, in the process.
My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I am always of for a myth retelling and this one was a little darker and heavy then a lot of other I have read. It get a lot of hopelessness from the characters in this book. Kali seems down and out for most of the book and she does not not treat the people around her very well. It does have a wrapped up ending, but I have to say I wanted something more from this book. Even if Kali is a cupid in training and falls for a an up and coming rockstar. She is all focused on herself we with all the support she has around her.
My Rating of the Book: 3 1/2 Stars
