We all know the story.
How it ended.
He survived and conquered each task.
Became the hero of all heroes.
And in the end he became a legend.
What no one told you is that I was there. I was helping him . . . and when he ascended, I was left behind to rot.
Herakles never knew I sold my soul for his success—he didn’t need to. Had I been enough on my own, he would’ve chosen to stay.
Instead, he rose to full glory.
I was dragged straight to Hades.
I lost track of him for nearly three millennia, but I’ve found him.
I will kill him.
He chose to become a god; I was forced to become a nightmare.
Now it’s time for us to meet again.
I abandoned my family mere moments before the Greek pantheon fell.
‘Till this day the whispers accuse me.
Had I been there, perhaps they could’ve been saved.
But I no longer gave a fuck.
Funny how vanity can blind a male to what really matters.
It took less than a year on Olympus before I began searching for her again.
I never found her.
Now, two-in-a-half-thousand years later, here I am.
An immortal ghost, simply getting by.
I should’ve never left her.
The only thing I had was hoping the last of her mortal days, wherever she ended up, were happy . . .
Joke’s on me.
A darkened, twisted version of my female returns, demanding my head for every one of my sins.
And she shall have it.
But first, I’m saving her from her curse.
I’ll sacrifice every ounce of my sanity left to free her . . . right before I let her end me once and for all.
My Review: 1 star
This is defiantly my least favorite book of the series so far.
I gave the first two books 3 and 4 stars.
This one though, I just can’t.
Maybe it’s because this book is very science-fiction compared to the others.
Maybe it’s because of my own preferences.
But I just could not get into this book.
I did not like Meg the heroine. I could never connect with her.
I felt that Hercules was not as strong as he could have been.
I was confused a lot of the time.
I feel like there was a lot of information thrown into the book and not all of it was explained very well.
I hate giving bad reviews.
And some people will love this book.
But me, not so much.
About the Author:
N. Isabelle Blanco is the Amazon Bestselling Author of the Allure Series, the Need Series with K.I.Lynn, and many others. At the age of three, due to an odd fascination with studying her mother’s handwriting, she began to read and write. By the time she’d reached kindergarten, she had an extensive vocabulary and her obsession with words began to bleed into every aspect of her life.
That is, until coffee came a long and took over everything else.
Nowadays, N. spends most of her days surviving the crazy New York rush and arguing with her characters every ten minutes or so, all in the hopes of one day getting them under control.
Ouch! Did you wind up finishing the book? I would have DNF’d (I’m getting much better at setting books aside that I am not enjoying)
Fantastic review. I also hate giving bad reviews, but unfortunately it is sometimes unavoidable and you did a great job.
Yikes, I feel you on this. These are the hardest reviews to write, in my opinion, but you handled it well.

Ohh my great honest review I am really sorry this book didn’t work out for you, I hope your next read is a much better one. Thank you so much for sharing your awesome post.
Ouch! But I am so glad you were honest. I have had to do a couple of DNFs this month and I applied you for going through with this one.
I just had to write a negative review and it’s always such a bummer! But that’s the whole point so I appreciate your honesty. Hopefully your next read is 5-stars!
Oh dear that really doesn’t sound good. Hopefully your next book will be better. Great review.
