Book Review: Promise of Shadows by Justina Ireland

My rating: 4 of 5 stars :star :star :star :star

Awesome! ^_^

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Promise of Shadows was a very unique read. It was slow in the beginning. The world and mythology was a lot to take in at first, and keeping everything straight was a little overwhelming. But the main character, Zephyr, was an awesome one. She's a very determined, powerful girl but aware of her own flaws. It's also great to have two hot guys but no love triangle. Super refreshing. :L

I don't have too much else to say about this mythology-inclined book. If you, like me, are a fellow lover of mythology - you'll love this book. :tup It's filled with bad gods, harpies, and darkness.
