Original ONGOING Adventure Fantasy Female Lead Mythos Strong Lead Supernatural Urban Fantasy

Talia Redowl, daughter of the goddess Athena, expected - and definitely wanted - to work for her mother when she graduated. In particular, she was hoping to be assigned as an aide to her older sister, Danae, their mother’s Avatar.

So when Talia’s graduation assignment is to become the Avatar of Hades, the legendarily anti-social and brooding god of the Underworld, she protests…the position has gone unfilled for two thousand years. Why her? Why now? The Fates weave a tangled web, and more is at stake than Talia’s plans for her own future.

But before she can take up her new post, Talia Redowl must die.

Death is just the beginning…

Not my cup of tea. I like more novels with orginality. But this story has very few grammar mistakes, is funny, interesting, and includes good ties with greek and roman culture. Keep going author! Looks amazing already.

Mix between Anthony (primarily) and Riordan

Reviewed at: Chapter 11

(written as of chapter 12)

The author mixed the ideas from Piers Anthony's "Incarnations of Immortality" (where the god-like Offices of Death, War, Nature etc were hold by mortals) and Rick Riordan's "Percy Jackson" (demigods being trained etc) with other ideas.

Most of the story so far is basically introduction to the concepts, with the real story of a bigger mystery only beginning in chapter 10 (after a timeskip).

It seems like a nice start to a number of rarely used concepts in fiction (from the other reviews few people remember the old "incarnations" series as it was written 1983-1990 with one last late book 2007), with more emphasis on the adult "incarnations" and less on the teenager-focused books of Riordan.

Looking forward to see how it develops.

A RRL must read for 2019 and beyond

Reviewed at: Chapter 11

It’s in the point one percent of stories of RR that has excellent writing and grammar compelling characters, who actually feel real, and an interesting premise. I won’t comment on the plot because so far as of 10/10 the introduction of the story just rapped up but I will be following Pluto and will update my review accordingly. Just read it even if it’s not your thing the story is quantitatively better than the majority of stories you can find on the site.

Excelent novel. Definitely recommended!

Reviewed at: Chapter 12

This novel is brilliantly written. Its pacing, dialogs, characters, descriptions and plot all exude a great deal of care and focus put into them. It's clear the author did his research before starting to write. It wouldn't surprise me to see this novel on the sheleves of a book store one day, so long as its standard of quality doesn't decline.

This novel ticks all the right boxes for me. Based heavily on mythology in the modern world (Athena no longer a virgin goddess?) this novel has all the characteristics of being something absolutely amazing. Despite only being 12 chapters long as of writing, there's plenty to get you almost instantly hooked.

Spelling and grammar are impecable, the characters that have been revealed so far have their individual personalities and from what I can tell, there doesn't appear to be any stereotypes (unless you call a child of Aphrodite being a bit of a loose lover a stereotype).

 

All in all, an excellent novel and I look forward to reading more.

Really enjoyable story that has me hooked. Has the feel of Percy Jackson for grown ups. Lots of mythology references, including some less well known characters. Interesting story, realistic characterization, well written, with nice long chapters.

Give it a read and follow. I did!

This has the potential to turn in to a very sucessful book.

Higher quality then I have seen in many published books.

Now its no groundbreaking new idea, but very well executed and different enough to give it its own flare. The characters we got to know are quite interesting, the plot is good too. what I wish to see is maybe a bit more in depth character developement, but ehh up to chapter 10 its more like an introduction and the main plot is probably going to start in the following chapters.

The mythical beings are too nice. I can't suspend my disbelief enough. I can smell an unnecessary love affair from ch 5. Meh.

This book explores the Greek mythological world in a unique-yet-familiar way which integrates Roman mythilogy and names, the idea of a central demogod teaching system, yet with a lack of the adolescent peril whoch originally plagued Rick Riordan's novels. That said, I am going to call right now that Talia replaces Persephone as Hades' new squeeze. This is as of 10/4/19. Regardless, this is a great novel, and I am glad to read it.

I didn't think I would like it but I do

Reviewed at: Chapter 15

I don't normally seek out supernatural mysteries or urban fantasies but I'm still enjoying this story. If you do like those kinds of stories then you'll likely enjoy this quite a bit. Even with it not being something I normally tend to read I do think this is well written and I'll probably keep reading.

I think this story is a little too plot driven, like things are only happening to the characters and they aren't actually doing things themselves. It's not a huge problem though.

It is a female lead with a female love interest, at least as of the current chapter—Chapter 15. While that doesn't do anything for me one way or the other, if you're looking for that then you'll probably like this even more.
