~My Review~
3.5 stars

Ari is a unique individual, even in a world with demons, angels, vampires, and god's. She is a combination of a phoenix/vampire as well as being the daughter of the god of War Ares, to say there is no other like her is  an understatement, she is a hybrid. As a hybrid she was hidden away from the world not long after her birth. Her parents knew she would be sought after from both sides and wanted to protect her from it all. Of course her mother died while giving birth, leaving her with her father-the god of war and no way to learn the ways of her mother's people. Regardless she goes up to be a pretty good bad ass, and seems to be determined to rid the world of the seedy side of the underworld. This is where the story begins, this is where she meets not only Julius, but also Alaris-but leaving a huge impact on her life and causing her great confusion. The story proceeds from there.

This book seemed to be missing something for me, it has a great plot and good characters, I love the paranormal twist with not only the vampire/phoenix, but the added mix of the God's as well. However I still felt a disconnect when reading it. It was a descent read, but did not leave me begging for more at the end. I believe the plot to have great potential but sadly did not feel that the story within met it. 

About the Book: 

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.


                                    About the Author:

Who am I, you ask? I am a woman who wears many hats. A mother of 3 wonderful boys is my first and for most priority, and from there it trickles down. I’m a wife, a cook, a house cleaner and a mommy to two dogs and a lazy love-able cat. Then there’s my alternate life.. The writer she is the kid who refuses to grow up. Stuck in a mind state of a teenager, who still has imaginary friends. The two half's of me get along great!! As long as I let the writer out and listen to my imaginary friends tell me their story, then there’s no conflict. If I keep her caged up too long… Well… You know what they say, when you keep the beast caged up to long, it gets angry. 

The life of a writer is who your born to be, not a job you just take on. It’s who I am.
