f404f-addtogoodreads   Synopsis   Did you just see a flash of lightning across the sky on a clear sunny day? It’s not from Mother Nature. It is most likely from Mason Grand, swoon-worthy demigod, one of Zeus’s descendants. Skylar Rome is supposed to be having the best summer ever before she heads off to college. Little did she know, her whole life was about to change while visiting her cousin. Nearly drowning at the beach due to unknown forces, one of the Grand brothers she’d just met, Mason, saves her life. Cool, collected, mysterious, and dangerously good-looking, Skylar is drawn to him from the start. Though she knows he is the type of guy good girls stayed away from, it seems he is always saving her life, and the attraction was inevitable. Upon meeting the brothers, strange things begin to happen. When she accidentally kills one of the brothers, it throws her life into turmoil, as they search to find the answers. Implausibly, she gets caught up in a world of the decedents of ancient gods, all who have super powers. Not only is her discovery difficult to accept, evil beings are after her. Running out of time and running for her life, she must unravel a mystery. What do they want from her? Forced into a battle set into motion long before she was born, will she find the answers, or will she die trying
My Review:
From Gods (Descendant Prophecies, #1)From Gods by Mary Ting
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I just finished From Gods and I am freaking out! I need book 2 right now! Mary has left me on the edge of my sofa feeling like I might lose my mind. My heart is pounding out of my chest. What an ending! Wow!!

Skylar is your average young woman that goes to spend the summer with her cousin Kayla. Strange things begin to happen, for example Skylar nearly drowns at the beach from being pulled under by something unexplainable. Lucky for her, handsome and absolutely yummy Mason is there to save her, but he isn't your average good looking guy. He is a descendant of Zues and has some pretty hair raising powers. Skylar doesn't stand a chance at keeping her distance from Mason. He has the hot, bad boy vibe down to a science. Lucky for her, he keeps having to save her life from the evil creatures that are hell bent on killing her.

From Gods is an extremely exciting story filled with action, adventure, love and I cannot forget hot demigods. I was hooked the moment Mason came into the story. I love Skylar's attitude and her kindheartedness. It makes me feel for her and want everything to work out for her. Mason stole my heart. I knew right from the beginning he had felt a great deal of pain in his life and I wanted to take all the hurt away. I also really liked the other characters Kayla, Nick, Amanda and even Everett. Mary really knows how to build her characters so that you can relate to them and root for them.

An absolutely brilliant book. I am waiting anxiously for book 2. I can't wait to see what happens next for Skylar and Mason.

My Review:

From Deities (Descendant Prophecies, #2)From Deities by Mary Ting
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I fell head over heals for Mason, Sky and their group of friends in From Gods. I was so excited to get to read more in From Deities and let me tell you this book took my breath away. The romance between Mason and Sky is so heart warming and adds so much to the story. Add to that some new characters and lots of action and you are in for the ride of your life. I loved every second of it.

Sky has developed new powers and discovered a prophecy that may change everything for her and her friends. She will need Mason and his love to give her strength to survive all that lies ahead. "Love can destroy and love can heal. It's what you decide to do with it that determines the path."

I really enjoyed that we had a chance to get to know the secondary characters like Nick and Amanda better in From Deities. I felt an attachment to these characters as well as Mason and Sky. My heart ached and tears were shed at some of the surprising turns in this awesome story. I may have screamed at my kindle a little too when I got to the insane cliffhanger. I desperately need to know what happens next!

"Good always won. I had to tell myself that, because that was my only hope."
