I want to strip this book down to its core and explain exactly why you do NOT have to be a huge fan of PNR or Greek mythology to enjoy Heph. Stick with me, I’ll less you in the right direction.
At it’s core, if you look past the names, the gifts, and the other world stuff, Heph is a story about a guy and a chick that both cannot believe someone could actually love them. They each have personal struggles that fuse them into your heart. The emotional attachment to these two characters (Heph & Phyre) I ended up with is colossal. Mind blowing.
Now let’s add in one element. Mythology. I am in NO WAY educated in Greek mythology. Didn’t matter. Not even a little. Elda Lore’s world building is sort on and she creates her own version of gifts/powers/whatever-you-wanna-call-them that I had no trouble following the story. But if Homer was as entertaining and engaging as Lore, I probably would have paid more attention in high school. Just sayin’.
And finally, the powers. This ain’t your normal “super powerful character” pnr. Phyre’s gift is freaking awesome. But even if I didn’t like it, I can see the correlation between her gift and fearing that you bring bad luck, or aren’t worthy, or whatever. It holds her back, fear controls her. I think we can all relate to that, yeah?
Any way…get this book. Read it, love it, hell, I want to buy a signed paperback. It’s. That. Good.
