Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Did I enjoy this book: The first aspect of the book that struck me was the characters. They are well developed and multi-dimensional. Quality characters are a must for me, and Mythos does not disappoint. I was immediately drawn to Itzy–she has just enough “every girl” to relate to a wide range of readers while still having plenty of mystery to keep us interested.
Would I recommend it: I sure would! Mythos has everything a lover of paranormal young adult fiction is looking for: magical beings, unrequited love, love triangles, cool mythology, and a slightly misfit heroine! What’s not to love? I certainly want to read the rest of the series!
About the book – from Goodreads: 17-year-old Itzel Loveguard has a secret. The stories she can’t seem to stop writing…sometimes they come true. And now she thinks she may have killed her own father.
But she’s not the only one. Her estranged half-brother Oz and his unfailingly charming friend Seth can do things too. And so can the handsome grey-eyed boy, who seems to have stepped right out of Itzy’s dreams and has been travelling to London in search of the mysterious black pulse.
Suddenly, Itzy is flung on an emotional journey as she struggles to come to terms with her traumatic past – and it leads her into a strange new world of magic and mythology.
Now she finds herself questioning everything she’s ever believed…and wondering who her father thought was coming for her.
