Grown up fans of Percy Jackson and Twilight will love this blend of mythology and romance set in the modern world.
No one is allowed to love her, except the god who cursed her…
Seventeen year-old Hope Nicholas is considered a monster. Cursed by Apollo, she and her mother scramble and hide from the demigods and shadow-monsters of the Underworld who hunt them.
Her mother is killed, and Hope flees, desperate to disappear among the mortals of a small town. When the attractive and persistent Athan Michael arrives at school, Hope’s plan to stay overlooked and detached unravels. With demigods and Skia closing in, Hope struggles to trust in her new relationships, and there is definitely more to Athan than he lets on.
Faced with choices that could change her fate, Hope must decide what it really means to live–and what she’s willing to sacrifice for love.
The Sphinx series is perfect for fans of young adult urban fantasy, coming of age fantasy, strong female heroines, ancient curses, and slow-burning romance.
