Fix the Past Friday
As a descendant of Greek gods, Nicole has attended the Academy alongside other students with magical powers on a Greek island. Life is pretty perfect—except for the fact that she was sentenced to stay there because of a childhood prank that also resulted in her parents' banishment. When Nicole discovers a book that teaches the forbidden magic of time travel, she knows she must take a chance to right her wrong. With the help of her friends Troy and Phoebe, Nicole sets off on a quest that will take her from the heights of Mt. Olympus to the ocean depths of Poseidon's home and to the bowels of Hades. Can she mend her mistakes? And is changing the past, what she really wants? The past and future combine in thrilling, unpredictable ways—especially when Greek gods are involved!
I was looking for something quick to read in a small time frame and stumbled upon this on my Kindle. Saw the words Greek gods and thought to myself…yes please. Wasn't at all what I expected. Turned out to have a young adult feel to to it. Not a problem at all, in fact I will recommend it to my younger group of book buddies. As always I don't want to give all the good stuff away since it's a shorter read but I really like the story line. Nicole has to collect items. Although I feel she was a little hard on Persephone. Love makes us do crazy things. What may appear to some as a miserable situation may not be misery at all.
I give this book 3 chocolate dipped strawberries and a pomegranate seed.
