For millennia we've caught only glimpses of the lives and loves of the gods and goddesses on Olympus. Now Aimě Carter pulls back the curtain on how they became the powerful, petty, loving and dangerous immortals that Kate Winters knows. Calliope/Hera represented constancy and yet had a husband who never matched her faithfulness. Ava/Aphrodite was the goddess of love and yet commitment was a totally different deal. Persephone was urged to marry one man, yet longed for another. James/Hermes loved to make trouble for others; but never knew true loss before. Henry/Hades's solitary existence had grown too wearisome to continue. But meeting Kate Winters gave him a new hope.

Who else really wanted to know more about the mythical characters in the world of the Greek Olympic Deities? Aphrodite/Ava undergoes issues with love, ironically; Hermes/James faces undeniably sorrowful loss. Hades/Henry and Hera/Calliope are tested on what they really want, and what they'll do to achieve it. And finally, we get to see what Persephone did,and what actually happened in her time. In this (e)book of short stories, we can learn from a different perspective how and why these gods and goddesses became how they are in Kate's narrative. It was a great book for me to enjoy, as the individual stories collaborated quite well. I would definitely recommend this to those who need a new spin on Greek Mythology, and what could have happened in reality. 5/5 - @Siri of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

I'm usually a big fan of mythology, but this book just annoyed me. The author made the gods and goddesses sound like whiny brats. I tried to finish the book thinking it would get better, but it just made me dislike it even more. Read Meg Cabot's Abandoned and Underworld instead. Both authors have the main characters as teenagers but Meg Cabot's will come across better. This author just wasn't very good.
