It wasn't that it didn't look interesting or intriguing. It's just that I'm always a little nervous when someone writes a book adapting stories from the Bible.
|Behold! Gorgeous cover!|
- The way Amalia weaves together her transformation of the Biblical creation story along with Norse, Egyptian, and Greek mythology (to name a few).
- Thor. I loved his place in the story and I am dying to see how it plays out in the next book!
- Eve. Definitely Eve. Strong, compassionate, humble, and the mother of everything.
- Mia! Amalia and I met through the lovely and hyper Mia Hayson so seeing Eve's sister named Mia gave me all kinds of happiness. Also Mia the character cracks me up.
- The multiple story lines. I really like how it rotated between present day, creation, and the progression of time as seen by Thor. It moved the story line along well and helped to pull all of the threads together in a very unique way.
- Garritt. I loved his passion for protecting Eve. And of course that leads me to
- Reu. And the whole story of the tribe of the Lions. So cool.
- The lions! I want a pack of lions to follow me around and protect me!
- Ra and Athena. Though they were only minor characters they just popped on the page. Nothing flat about these characters!
- The ending! It left me wanting more without being too horrible of a cliffhanger. Nothing was resolved, but it didn't leave me angry like a lot of books that end quite openly.
