Type: Trilogy – Book 2
Genre: Fantasy, Magical world, Action & Adventure, Fiction

Secondary Characters: Kato, Craver, Flynn
This is another wonderful sequel to action filled trilogy series. I was hooked on this intriguing and amazing world. This is a unique fantasy romance series containing an awesome mix of Greek mythology.
Book starts exactly where book1 is ended. This book is nonstop action from start to finish. Cat’s real identity is now revealed. Yet, cat has hidden another important secret. She is still not ready to reveal it with Griffin. Their adventures continue as the power bid is in full effect. With the Sintan borders unprotected, Cat and Beta team leave home taking their journey towards Ice Plains in hope of convincing mythical and magical creatures to guard their border.
We meet several mythical creatures from hydras, centaurs, nymphs, Cyclops, Cerberus in their journey. Their action during Agon Games is thrilling and mesmerizing. Some amount of gore might be slightly high for light hearted people.
Loved bold, reckless and stubborn Cat. Her character is complex, with the sass and violence as protective layers for herself and others but she allows us to see her vulnerability a bit more in this book. Griffin is gem. His faith and trust in Cat is amazing. His protectiveness, clever thoughts, love declaration and taking an equal share in their destiny of conquering world. He made me swoon over him more and more.
Beta Team is Fab. Carver, Flynn and Kato are so courageous, loyal and would sacrifice themselves in protecting Cat and Griffin. We meet lot of other wonderful secondary characters in this. Pace is fast with gripping narration. Writing style is simple.
It’s a wonderful mixture with a balanced amount of fantasy, action, suspense and romance. My favourite part is still action. A spell bound, utterly delicious fantasy novel!
