Tour!! A Review & Giveaway of From Gods by Mary Ting

From Gods (Descendant Prophesies #1) by Mary Ting
Genre: Young Adult (Paranormal Romance/Greek Mythology)
Date Published: October 17, 2013
Publisher: Self

Did you just see a flash of lightning across the sky on a clear sunny day? Don’t blame Mother Nature.

Skylar Rome should have been having the best summer ever, before heading off to college. Suddenly her whole life changes while visiting her cousin, and meeting the Grand brothers; Mason, in particular. Though she’s sure he is someone she should stay away from, the attraction was undeniable.

Strange things begin to happen, throwing Skylar’s life into turmoil. Implausibly, she gets caught up in a world where the descendants of ancient gods have super powers, and evil beings are after her. Not only are her discoveries difficult to accept, but now she is running out of time and running for her life, while trying to unravel the mystery of what they want from her. 

Forced into a battle set into motion long before she was born, will Skylar find the answers she seeks, or will she die trying?

I'm a huge fan of Mary Ting, so when I heard about this book, From Gods, I knew it would be great. It was! Mary is an amazing story teller. From the very beginning of From Gods I was lured in. This is a fast paced read that I absolutely couldn't put down. Skyler's life is about to change, and as a reader, I felt like I was going through it with her and learning about her as she learned about herself. She is a character that had some growth through this story, and still has some more growth to come. She's had a lot thrust upon her in a short amount of time, so this will take some adjusting. I just want to hug Mason. He's very protective of his heart. He's had a rough past and his future is insecure, so it makes sense for him to be guarded. I liked watching his wall start to crumble. These are characters I could really grow attached to. Heck I already am attached to them. I love the mythology/paranormal combination that makes up this story. I'm excited for more. I want to know more about what the prophesies say too. There is so much to look forward to in this series, and I can't wait for more!!

Check out my reviews of some of Mary Ting's books!

Mary Ting resides in Southern California with her husband and two children. She enjoys oil painting and making jewelry. Writing her first novel, Crossroads Saga, happened by chance. It was a way to grieve the death of her beloved grandmother, and inspired by a dream she once had as a young girl. When she started reading new adult novels, she fell in love with the genre. It was the reason she had to write one-Something Great. Why the pen name, M Clarke? She tours with Magic Johnson Foundation to promote literacy and her children’s chapter book-No Bullies Allowed. Check out my interview with Mary Ting!
