This is like some weird version of Twilight and I just didn’t like it at all. An immortal creature and a teenager, again? Really? (Yes I read and quite liked twilight when I was younger and maybe this would’ve been great when I was a teen but it’s a hard no now)

I’m so disappointed. I had high hopes for this YA. It’s a bit different from what I normally read when I read YA but it sounded promising. Unfortunately it fell flat.

I didn’t read the whole thing. I got about 50 pages in before I skimmed the rest of the book and read the ending. Nothing surprising.

I will say that I liked the character Cal a lot and am sad that I didn’t get to know him better. I just could not keep reading about Lila and Cupid and the drama drama drama. And the chapters were so short which works sometimes but seemed unnecessary in this story.

Oh, Apparently things get wild at some point and lots of mythological creatures come into play and it somehow all makes sense but I’m not convinced.
