Publisher's Summary

 It all started with a dare.

A single dare on Maisey Parker's 21st birthday and her entire life changed.

One second she was getting drunk with her friends, and the next she was climbing a cliff, cutting her hand, and accidentally offering a blood sacrifice that opened a thousand year old prison. A prison that contained the only living Titan. One too powerful to kill. One that wants nothing to do with being attached to Maisey.

Cronus has an old score to settle with the Greek Pantheon. Lucky she has some sick days saved up at work, because Maisey is dragged along whether she likes it or not. A decision Cronus no doubt regretted right around the time she makes a colossal mistake, unleashing an untold evil on the world.

Now they're in a race against the clock to resurrect the other Titans, the only beings who can contain the evil. They're the world's last hope. And Maisey's.

hashtag

#soannoying #maincharactersucks I normally love these authors books, but the main character and those damn hashtags were so annoying, it took away from what could have been a really awesome story.

***Oh My Cronus***

Vanessa Moyen is a brilliant narrator thank you. Releasing the gods is witty, none stop gods actions and not to forget our heroine #addictedtoinstagram lol I've enjoyed this book so much and can't wait for book two, five star all the way. It's extremely entertaining, I couldn't stop laughing.

Nope too much ###

Jaymin Eve & Leia Stone are one of my favorites duo of co-writting authors. But sadly this book was not one of my favorites. The story by itself would have been awesome if not for the constant Hashtagging every few sentences. That sadly killed it for me. I don't know if listening to it via Audible made it worse but i will try to read the other books instead of listening to it maybe it will be less annoying. Vanessa Moyen did an excellent job narrating this book like usual i love her voice. So sad that that the constant # ruined it.

Extreamly Imature

This book is what's wrong with our generation I am the age of the main character, who is obsessed with posting herself Instagram (this is my biggest pet peeve) the book encourages young women to continue being so vane it disgusts me. She speaks very immaturely saying "hashtags" every paragraph. I could bearly get through the first chapter but dragged on hoping it would get better since I love fictions revolving around the gods but after chapter 5 I just couldn't do it. The book just pissed me off the whole time. Don't waste your time

#TooManyHashtags

Overall the story was good but the overuse of hastags got old really quick. No one talks like that and I had a hard time connecting with the lead because of that. The narrator did a fantastic job bringing the story to life. It would be a great read if 75% of the hashtags were removed

A very fun read

Finished it in a day and it made for a very enjoyable afternoon. The hashtag usage gets a little excessive at times, but it does add a certain amount of character and charm to the book that I enjoyed most of the time. The mythology in it was great, and the humor kept me thoroughly entertained. All in all definitely worth a read and I’ll be looking forward to the sequel.

So bad

Don’t waste your time or money unless you’re OK with the F word in every other sentence and hash tag in every statement she makes it’s #Annoying .. it’s a shame because it could be a really fun story

Interesting, but a bit...

I found the story interesting, and I love Vanessa Moyen, but the story felt too rushed and there wasn't a lot of character development at the beginning. I also found all of the hashtag comments to be a little too much, but I'm not an Instagram follower so that could be why. I still really like Jaymin Eve's work and I'm looking forward to book 2, but I'll probably read it before I think about buying the audio.

Ugh!!!!!

Disappointed!!!! I love books by Jaymin Eve and love Vanessa Moyers narrative skills but thus hook is complete garbage!!! I swear this book is only as long as it is because they used hash tag this, hash tag that and other hash tag nonsense! A complete letdown!!!!

Quick fun read

I liked the story. The hashtags are a little annoying but she’s an instagram girl. So it’s suppose to be her thing. The story is fun and interesting. I’m already purchasing the second.

#TooManyHashtags

I love this author duo + Vanessa Moyen narration combo, with the funny characters and stories told with excellent voice acting. It wasn’t any different with this story. This story is definitely reflective of a subset of today’s younger population and the selfie thing is pretty par for the course. I have no beef or judgement on that, especially because not all people who post selfies are vain and if they are that’s their business. The authors chose a very real character type and applied it well. But also, Maisy’s arc has the character maturing. Some of the relationship development felt like it jumped stages which didn’t always feel genuine but also wasn’t in your face either. I agree with another reviewer who said it felt a little bit rushed. But otherwise it’s a fun story full of twisted Greek mythology, Gods, and other creatures. That said, the hashtag crap is every few paragraphs and got Real Old, Real Fast. If it had been lightly sprinkled throughout the story I would have found it charming but the gag went overboard and dragged the whole ship on top of it. It took me out of the story nearly every time it happened because it was so overkill. While I truly adore her readings, I find there’s a mispronounced word with nearly every Vanessa Moyen narration I’ve heard. I don’t want to harsh on that too much because I’ve had my fair share of mispronunciations and it’s typically from learning a word by reading which is not something to slam, just more of a note that it happens and draws me out of the story. I feel that learning word pronunciations is important for a voice actor and I do wish that unfamiliar words were investigated a bit more.

Pretty good

I really liked this as an opening gambit for a larger series: it wasn't what I assumed it was right at the start of the book and like an avalanche, it built and built upon itself as the story went on. But my god, the FMC's inner monologue is annoying! All of the hashtags every other sentence actually hurt my brain and made her sound more like 16 than 21

Great book

I LOVED this book, it was entertaining and I felt the story was paced really well, a lot of these sort of books feel very rushed but this one got it perfect! The characters were lovable and I really enjoyed watching the heroine’s personality evolve throughout the book. I enjoyed the fact that Maisey wasn’t a typical heroine and wasn’t one of those ‘perfect and pure’ people, she had flaws which I felt brought her character to life. The one thing I would say would be the #tags. It was a nice touch but I felt it was just a little overdone and really stunted the flow of the story at points. But overall, would definitely recommend!

Amazing!!

Leia Stone and Jaymin Eve have done it again. An absolutely fabulous start to another great series. Lots of action packed scenes and a cliffhanger at the end leaving you wanting more. Vanessa Moyen did a fantastic job bringing the story to life. I cannot wait for the second book!! 💕

Intriguing

Witnessing this quurky, self absorbed young woman slowly change into someone who cares for others is an entertaining journey. With the addition of some super sexy men I did find this story wonderfully entertaining apart from the constant hash tags. The talented narrator brings these characters to life. I can't wait to see where this series goes next.

Amazing book

This is an amazing book! I’ll admit I’ve never been much into Greek god stories but this book just may have changed my mind about that. It brought enough modern day into mix with the mythology to keep me hooked the entire time. #givememore I can’t wait tell book 3 comes out.
