I asked Taylor how did she come about writing this book, and this is what she said:

It's funny but the initial idea sparked from a class I was taking. It was an elective called Great Books. I had chosen to read about Greek Mythology and fell in love with the topic. So I wrote some short stories about it, but never writing a full length novel, I didn't want to try. It was kind of intimidating sitting down and preparing to write a book. So instead I stuck with my short stories and stayed in my comfort zone. 

Then I had this crazy dream about a full plot and everything that had to do with Greek Mythology stories but with a new twist on them. I woke up and wrote the dream down and started writing that same day. I wrote this book in about a month since I was so into it and the ideas kept flowing. The plot has stayed the same ever since the dream, just minor parts have changed.

REVIEW:
I sorta hated the beginning.
Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
It doesn't take long to get light though.
Thankfully.
Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…

The Rock, Jason Stathom and Ryan Reynolds in one film. Oh, my!
It was a great story, had tons of action and kick-ass moments. It was comical at times too. Everything I hoped for in this movie was there.
Just make sure you keep watching after the credits. It doesn't end when you think it does.
Watched with the hubby and he is a big fan. His exact words were, 'it was awesome'.
