From Gods (Descendant Prophecies #1) by Mary Ting

If I had to sum up this book in two words, I would say it was electrifyingly perfect. I am not kidding. This book was AMAZING. I loved every single moment of this book. I sat in my bed just reading this book nonstop because I was so hooked on it. I want to scream from the mountain tops "I love "From Gods" and Mary Ting". Well, that is a bit extreme, but I think you get my point. I am obsessed with this book. The storyline was so intriguing. There was mystery, action, romance, humor, and everything else in-between. I adored the demigods aspect of this book. I just was fascinated with learning about the different gods, their powers, and their offspring. Ms. Ting did a wonderful job of building the world of the demigods. 

What I loved the most about this book was the fact that every character was amazing. Every character was my favorite character. Ms. Ting did an amazing job of creating such believable characters. Each character had something unique to their personality, and I loved that. The character development was incredible. The main character of the book, Skylar, was the perfect heroine. She was kind, witty, smart, and brave. Skylar could kick booty when she needed to, but she knows when to ask for help when necessary. It was really enjoyable watching her grow into a strong young woman throughout the book. I equally loved Skylar's best friend and cousin, Kayla. Kayla is so loyal to Skylar and she would do anything to help Skylar. The scenes with Kayla never seemed to drag like scenes between best friends can sometimes in books. Instead, the scenes were always fun and entertaining. 

Now, it's time I talk about Mason. Oh lord, I love him so much. I almost cannot put into words how much I love him. If I could marry a fictional character, I would marry him, no doubt about it. His brother, Nick, is tough competition with his humor, but I just love Mason too much. Mason has gone through a lot in his life, and he puts up walls to protect himself from ever getting hurt again. Watching Skylar slowing break through those walls was beautiful. They fell in love organically; nothing seemed rushed or forced. 

              "I've missed you. I can't sleep. I can't eat. Every waking moment I think of you. Every second of my sleepless nights, you're on my mind, and if somehow I sleep, I dream of you. You're all that I can think of. I tried to stay away, but I can't. I'm sorry if I've ever hurt you or wronged you in any way. It was not my intention. I didn't want to feel again. Before you, my life was empty and cold, but you made me feel alive again, a feeling I thought was buried so deep from all the pain and loss that it would never resurface." 

As mentioned above, there was some romance in this book. Mason and Skylar's relationship was beautifully written, and romance was believable. They didn't instantly fall in love. They were instantly attracted to each other, but they fell in love over time. Mason and Skylar had some tender moments that made me melt into a puddle on the ground. I just cannot reiterate enough how much I loved their relationship. I also adored the relationship between Nick and Kayla. They were so adorable that I was smiling ear to ear anytime they had a cute moment together. Nick and Kayla had some great moments with witty banters as well as moments with smoking hot chemistry. 

         " "Mason, the reliable one, Mr. Goodboy."

         "The reliable one? Then your older brothers are not reliable?"


            "What about you?"

           "I'm the bad boy kind." He pulled her in so fast she didn't have time to react. He conquered her lips passionately, letting her know he wanted her. "

I could go on for years and years about how much I loved this book. There was a bit of a cliffhanger at the end of the book, so I am dying to get my hands on the sequel. So, everyone please stop what you are doing and go buy this book. I guarantee this book will not disappoint.

5 / 5 Fangs

Cliffhanger: Yes
