An ancient grudge. A forbidden love.

The only thing worse than being a demon is being a Valari. As an undergraduate at Los Angeles’s Alameda University, Kara Valari can sometimes succeed at forgetting she’s both. Lost between the pages of the classics and tucked into the shadows of lecture halls, she can dodge the paparazzi’s lenses as well as her family’s publicized dramas—not to mention their private expectations. She has one more year to feed her true passions. Then she’ll be expected to fulfill a much darker destiny.

Cursed with inexplicable strength and god-like stature, literature professor Maximus Kane knows all about darkness. Every day he’s reminded of the missteps of his childhood and the devastating consequences they’ve had on those dearest to him. To atone, Maximus spends his nights alone and his days submerged in the quiet life of academia. His existence has become a study in control, and he’s become a master at it—until Kara Valari walks into his toughest course.

Viscerally, Kara’s everything he craves. Logically, she’s everything he rejects. She’s a starlet of privilege. She’s also a student. And after one touch, he can’t deny that she’s awakened something in him that may never go dormant. Nothing about her makes sense, but everything about her feels right. Especially in the deepest strands of his DNA, which are still shadows of mystery to him—a mystery Kara seems determined to uncover.

She’s Hollywood royalty. She’s forbidden fruit. And he’s pretty sure she could be the answer to everything.


I received Blood of Zeus in return for an honest review from Page and Vine. 

Kara's life couldn't be more complicated she's Hollywood Royalty but as if that's not enough she's also a demon so her life has been mapped out since she was born. Hoping to avoid her future Kara has her last year to enjoy her passion and live her life before she's forced to accept her future. She never expected to encounter Maximus Kane her professor who throws her plans out the window. Maximus lived a controlled life after a tragic accident, but with Kara in his class all his control goes at the window as he can't stop thinking about her. 

I absolutely love Kara she's just a sweetheart even though she's been forced into a world she doesn't want to be apart. I just loved Maximus right from the start he's a swoon worthy professor who happens to be teaching Dante's Divine Comedy which is one of my favorite stories. They have this sweet undeniable connection that keeps drawing them back together as much as they try to deny it. Kara and Maximus are perfect for each other it almost feels like fate had a hand in throwing them together and I just love them both. 

I devoured Blood of Zeus in just a couple reading session and ended up staying up late to finish because I just had to know what would happen next. I loved every moment the characters are easy to connect with and the story is magical. I'm kind of obsessed with learning more about Maximus as I love mythology so much and can't wait to see what's in store for them. 

This is my first book by the authors and I'm obsessed with their storytelling. They created a 
beautiful story that sparks the heart as well as the imagination. The concept was so unique and exciting. I couldn't wait to see what is going to happen next. I love the idea of mythology meets demons it was such a refreshing concept. I loved every moment of Blood of Zeus it's one of my top favorite reads of the year. I'm looking forward to finishing the rest of the series and exploring the authors other books.
