I really enjoyed this book. It references the Trojan way by bringing in the reincarnation of characters Like Helen of Troy and Paris. It made me want to read the Iliad and the Odyssey just for more context!

This book is good, but there are still a lot of minor flaws. Like, the author should really come up with a better reason to keep Helen and Lucas away from each other. The sibling thing is not very original; the Mortal Instruments uses it too! And I find it really weird that Helen won't physically hurt someone or beat them up, but she'll use lightning to electrify them instead? Plus, the author makes it all a little too predictable. I could totally tell that something would happen with Claire aka Giggles and one of Lucas' relatives. I won't spoil who it is. Despite that, I would still recommend reading this trilogy.

I enjoyed this book right up until the end. It is similar to Rick Riordan's series about Percy Jackson and the Olympians. Just a lot more romance focused.
