But I knew my inner 13-old-Greek-mythology-addicted would have jumped into this, and I couldn't let her down. overall i felt absolutely nothing for any of these characters and could care less what happened to them. I’m a reader who enjoys character-driven stories so of course I found Lore to be the most captivating part of this story. When we meet her it’s painfully obvious how grief has taken hold of her life. It weighs her down but it also drives her will to live. okay so thats all folks, i hope you enjoyed my review, because its kinda a mess. the bottom line is, if this book was on your most anticipated releases list, cross it off. or dont. who knows, maybe youll love it, but i definitely didnt.

Frantic: There were so many highs in this book. So much action, so much happening again and again. Action is great, but there needs to be 'downtime' too. This didn't have much downtime, making it feel frantic. Overall, I enjoyed Lore. There was a lot of action and a bit of romance, but the Greek mythology and characters were the best parts of the story. It was a bit bloodier than I thought it’d be, but that wasn’t a negative for me.

LINKURI UTILE

I also want to briefly mention, and I do not want to be too personal, but childhood cancer is something that is very close to my heart and something that impacts every day of my life, so reading a book about a boy who had to go through multiple rounds of chemotherapy, radiation, and stem-cell transplants, for a cancer he had to fight twice, to get to see him be a modern-day Greek God… it was just very powerful. I can’t even think of another YA book where we get to see a young side character be impacted by cancer and see those around them be impacted by it too, and not have it be the focal point of a sad story starring it. I just wish we had more representation for this very real situation where people’s lives are so heavily influenced by this disease that impacts so many children every single day. (This is one of the few triggers I do personally have, but I thought it was very well done, and it made my heart very happy to read, and I wish more children and young adults living with cancer, or living in remission, could read stories that give happy and hopeful endings.) Once the group determines that the new Aphrodite, Heartkeeper, is Wrath’s next target, they all go to a building of the Odysseides. They see Wrath with Heartkeeper demanding that he open the vault. Athena and Lore sneak into the vault and rescue Lore’s friend, Iro, as Wrath kills Heartkeeper. They all escape, but Iro is reluctant to help Lore, as her house just lost their god and Iro’s father. Van ! First I was scared tht he would because a love triangle. But the moment he started talking to Miles, the energy was palpable. I started loving him and his relationship with Miles is awesome! before i start ranting, i do have a few things that i really enjoyed about this book, and felt like should be mentioned. But honestly, as I started the first chapter, then slowly made my way through the story, I realised that I am: 1) confused and 2) bored.

I really thought A Court of Silver Flames was going to be my worst read of the year, but damn, Lore really has a way of making me seriously question my life choices. The romance in Lore is cute, but somehow it did not satisfy me, I don't know if it's because of the fast development or the pace of the book... It is a sweet "childhood friends to lovers" story and it added a cute touch to the book. At first, I was not sure about the place that the romance would hold in this book, since the beginning is all about fighting, revenge, killing, and trying to survive for the Agon week, but the author did a good job of showing how the badass girl and the sweet boy completed each other and how they'd had feelings for each other for years. They are adorable.

ask me to explain what actually happened in this book. i think we can all tell from my synopsis that i really didnt get the story. i truly believe that this plot had so much potential, but the execution was awful. This had so much potential and ended up being so incredibly flat. The world is supposed to be modern day, but you wouldn’t know it by how characters act and how incredibly misogynistic the hunter society is. Sure, they are more of an insular culture but you can’t honestly have me believe that they are living in NYC and totally cut off from modern society and norms. Plus, there was the CUTEST childhood friends to lovers romance that I’ve read in a while between a badarse girl who could do some major damage and the SOFTEST boy who just wanted to help people. They were just SO ADORABLE! <3

It’s not always the truth that survives, but the stories we wish to believe. The legends lie. They smooth over imperfections to tell a good tale, or to instruct us how we should behave, or to assign glory to victors and shame those who falter. Perhaps there were some in Sparta who embodied those myths. Perhaps. But how we are remembered is less important than what we do now.” I’m giving this a 4 stars 🌟 right now. I think I missed something. 🤔 There is a lot a lot of gruesome killing in the book for a YA book. But I still don’t see where Medusa actually came into the book through anyone 🤔. Brilliant cover though! Every seven years, the Agon begins. As punishment for a past rebellion, nine Greek gods are forced to walk the earth as mortals. They are hunted by the descendants of ancient bloodlines, all eager to kill a god and seize their divine power and immortality. Overall, I was expecting more from this book, I still feel that parts of the plot are weak, due to the generic villain and the unoriginal quest for power, but I still enjoyed reading this book, and I would recommend it. Castor ! Adding him to my fictional boyfriends list! Cas is super cute nd I love him. He has a lot of problems and watching him solve them was super. Having acquired Apollo's power, he is not condescending! He is mature nd not power-hungry like the majority of the characters!

Every seven years, the Agon begins. To punish them for their past rebellion, Zeus forces nine Greek gods to walk on Earth as mortals while the descendants of ancient bloodlines hunt them, eager to clain their power and immortality as their own. Lore Perseous has long abandoned the Agon after the murder of her family. For years she has pushed away the taught of getting revenge on the god, formely man, who is responsable for their deaths. But as the next hunt begins in New York, Lore is seeked out by two participants: Castor, her childhood friend who she believed dead and a wounded Athena, one of the last original gods still alive. The goddess offers an aliance against their mutual enemy and the hope of leaving the Agon forever, but their power might not be enough to defeat the new god. When I first read what Lore was all about, I was sold. A mix of Medusa (who is one of my faves, I must say) and The Hunger Games set in the present world?? Descendants of the OG heroes trying to kill the old gods to steal their powers of godhood?? That's nuts...and I loved it! Maybe I was expecting more. Maybe story telling style, exaggerated violence, too much triggering subjects cut my living cords and exhausted me lot to enjoy the entire journey.

of life left the old god’s eyes. “The way of your father, and his father before him. The old gods must the main romance in this book was terrible. there was a side romance that i thought was cute but the romance that was really focused on was atrocious. and dont even get me started on the love interest.lore looked so promising! a greek mythology book that takes place in new york? sounds like my personal heaven. unfortunately, this book had so many flaws that i genuinely just could not overlook, and my overall enjoyment of the novel was not as high as i had hoped it would be. okay i have no clue how im going to structure this review, so i apologize in advance for any chaos. And even if it combines two great worlds, the feeling of “been there, seen that, done that” is too much present to just ignore it. In the prologue, the god Wrath (also known as Aristos) is forced into a human body to participate in the Agon, a week of battle between the gods. Aristos is determined to never face another Agon. In the middle of New York, there is a girl named Lore who has felt more heartbreak in her life than any teenager should. She was once a part of a world full of gods as a descendent of Perseus. Her family was one of the last of the bloodline. When they were all horribly murdered, leaving Lore alone, she decided to leave that brutal world forever.
