ARC Review of From Deities by Mary Ting!

Goodreads Summary:
A mysterious stranger enters Skylar’s inner circle, throwing her life out of balance. As secrets are revealed, she learns of the New Olympus; a dwelling for the descendants of the Gods. The Grand family must strive to work together with these descendants to discover the key to their rescue from the clutches of the growing evil vultures of Hades. As the threat increases, Skylar must learn to control her newfound powers before it’s too late.

My Review:
Sky’s life has become a little crazy since the last time we saw her. With the combination of Medusa and Hades blood, she is dangerous in many ways. She is still coming into her powers and is a little scared at the power that is forming. Luckily she has Mason and the rest of the gang to help her through this. She feels like someone is watching her all the time. Unfortunately, she is right. She isn’t safe. Someone wants her and will stop at nothing to get her. This puts everyone she loves at risk. Will Sky ever be safe? Who is this person who wants her so badly?

Mason has taken on the role of Sky’s protector. He is always there for her. This is a good thing because someone isn’t being honest with them. Someone is helping the bad guys get to her. There are multiple battles and fights that take place. And let me say that it is a good thing Sky has such strong friends because her fate could have been very different. The enemy is evolving and is more dangerous than ever before. The Vultures defiantly have a powerful person pulling the strings. Who could it be? Sky also has a new person in her life. Someone from her past that she never thought she would see again. This person changes everything. 

We are also introduced to some new power players. More descendants are out there. Those who are willing to help and have powers of their own. I enjoyed this aspect of the story! I love all the Greek Gods so this was an excellent addition to the story. 

We still get to see romantic times between Sky and Mason, even though the situation is pretty serious. This is an action packed story with an ending I didn't see coming. There was a bit of a cliffhanger at the ending. In order to save her family will Sky be able to complete this task? A task that could end very badly for her. I don’t know the answer because it will be in the next book! Which I need soon!
