The Descendant Prophecies- From Titans by Mary Ting!

Visit the world of Descendant Prophecies in FROM TITANS by Mary Ting…


Everyone is searching for Mason. 
Zeus sent Hermes, and the Oracles have used their magic, with no success. A sparkle of hope arises when Eris, the goddess of Chaos, sends an invitation to her wedding engagement party. She’s holding Mason hostage, and Skylar and her friends only need permission to enter Eris’s world to rescue him. 
At the party, Eris gives them one condition: In exchange for Mason, they must travel to the Land of Reverse and bring back the bottle of gold water King Midas used to wash himself free of his gift. Further chaos follows when Eris not only sets up a hunt in the Labyrinth of Crete, but makes a bargain with the Titans she rescued. 
The Titans possess power more than anyone anticipated, and Cronus is hungry for revenge after his own children locked him up in Tartarus. No one is safe. Not even the humans.

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!!

My Review 

Ooh, book two is awesome!! Skye has a lot of power, and she is just trying to figure them out. We have magic and gods and all kind of crazy going on, so it's a magical fun ride of excellence! 

Skye's power lets her control the fate of others. But not just now, but from the past, present and future. It's a big big deal and she's gotta learn how to use it all. And it's a struggle as to what's right, what's wrong, and what she's willing to sacrifice. Oh and the kicker, she's got blood relation to Medusa and Hades, so she's got all kinda complications going on. And Mason is her protector but also her love. And because of that love, he feels when she needs him. I love their relationship and I love the support they have from everyone. And now Skyebhas some new family she's getting to know. But when she tries to get to know them and asks things, they answers aren't always good- no more like heartbreaking. And it's so cool to see more descendants from other gods, like Collin. Aaron, Sarah, Adam and Kevin. 

I love the writing style of this author and I love this series!! She's created a masterful world of Greek mythology and magic and a beautiful world to live in. Though it can be heartbreaking just the same. I'm impressed with the emotions I feel from this series! So with that, I'm jumping into book three and I'm leaving you with a 5 PAWS!!
