From Gods by Mary Ting!!



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 descendants 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
I really liked this book. With magic and myths and mysteries surrounding Skylar, it made for a fun read with a great storyline. It starts out introducing us to Skylar as a young girl. She's had some heartache, but growing she deals. And then she goes to live with her cousin Kayla. Everything changes for her here. And here's where Mason comes to light, and his brothers as well. Goodness a bunch of hot brothers, I'm moving in next door too!! And when Kayla falls for Mason's brother Nick, things get complicated. Mason and Skylar like each other yet for some reason Mason pushes her away. And yet the romance is almost a side note. 

Someone or something keeps trying to kill Skylar, and somehow mason is always there to save her. And there's so many secrets and suspense. I had a blast reading this one. And I recently discovered book two on netgalley- fingers crossed. 

The writing is great and it's well paced. The style is perfect if you're into Greek mythology. Overall I though it was fantastic! 5 PAWS!!
