Like so many other authors at the moment, Kelly Keaton has taken us into a future world where mythology has come to life in dark and deadly ways - and unlike some of those authors Kelly Keaton has done a fantastic job. Without sounding too cliched from my own reviews, Keaton has taken diferent mythologies and bound them together to create a world that is wholey believable and drags you into the action kicking and screaming. Ari is tough and determined, but also has a vulnerable side that peaks through the armour she has built around herself to survive. The cast around her is not always as fleshed out as they could be, but the pace of the story is such that you don't really mind - and the promise of more books to come with probably flesh those characters out more anyway. A fantastic read, and I can't wait for more in the series to see how the mythology develops further.
