After his fall to Earth, Icarus has been in Hell, punished for his hubris. When he wins a chance at parole, he’s thrilled – except for the set of wings attached to his body.
Eve Gregory runs a small bookstore in northern Connecticut. When she hires the handsome stranger to work for her, she doesn’t know the secrets he’s hiding. Or that becoming involved with him will embroil her with the Greek gods and goddesses.
Icarus and Eve must perform a quest set down for them by Zeus. If they are successful, will that be end of their relationship? Or will love teach them a new way to soar?
When I saw the title, ‘Icarus Rising’, I was intrigued. After reading the description I knew immediately that this could be a book I would fall in love with.
It sure was!
I started reading and I couldn’t/wouldn’t stop. I needed to know what would happen to Icarus and Eve. Would they make it till the end of the story or not?
The book really had all I wanted. It had mythology, a bit of romance (a real chick lit like vibe.) and a quest. I enjoyed it so much that I found it a pity it was out before I knew it!
That was the only big shortcoming for me. It went too fast. I wanted it to be slower, more pages to read / to savor.
So I definitely want more. I hope we get more!! A sequel? Or something about the Gods? As long as Icarus and Eve come back, I’m game!
I’m also certainly going to read other books by this author.
