Ari is the daughter of Ares, the God of War. Half goddess and half Phoenician, she is raised by her father in secrecy until her 18th birthday, when he is forced to return to Olympus.

She chooses not follow her father, and decides to venture out into the mortal realm. There, Ari crosses paths with the archangel Julius, who bears a message from a seer. Ari must return to the Bayou to her late mother’s coven to regain her family crown, she is soon fighting for more than just the crown; she is fighting for her life, and the inner darkness that’s consuming her.

With 7 days to prepare for her trials and 7 days to fight for her life, Ari does the one thing she must do to survive; she forges herself into the weapon she was born to be.

What wouldn’t you do to save those you love? How much of yourself are you willing to sacrifice to save the mortal realm, the heavens and Olympus?

I’ll give the book a star because of the interesting combination of a phoenix, vampire, Greek god hybrid, and the fact that with her angel boyfriend, they will be making some really interesting babies. However, the writing and the characters were convoluted, painful to read, and confusing. The actions were weird with some details being oddly emphasized with others glossed over. The dialogue was just as awkward and painfully simplistic. Also, a lot of problems and plots were characters (*cough* Ari *cough*) making mountains out of mole hills. Also, Ari seemed to cry all the damn time about even the little things, (seriously the word “tears” shows up 39 times. My kindle says so.) and everyone still thought she was a bad ass. No thanks.
