BOTW: Harbinger by Peta Crake {7th December 2012}

BLURB:

As an Olympic messenger, suburban Aussie girl Ophelia Lind is used to being at the beck and call of the gods. But when gorgeous demigod Aden moves into her neighbourhood and starts taking advantage of her services, Ophelia believes life could not get any worse. She’s about to be proven very wrong.

Ophelia tries to enjoy a normal, everyday life while running messages for the Greek gods – but without warning an odious creature – evil incarnate – begins to stalk her. As a messenger dealing with the all-powerful and sometimes frightening gods, Ophelia is accustomed to adventures and scrapes. But this is different. Even Aden, who is madly and deeply in love with Ophelia, finds it difficult to protect her. Suddenly Ophelia is in a battle for survival and begins to question everything – her upbringing, her identity, and her true feelings for the alluring and entirely frustrating Aden.

Review:

Okay… First of all, I really love Mythologies. Although I read Greeks and Roman Mythologies only. Second, I love the cover. ;) So when Harbinger was recommended to me, I really thought that I would really love it. So it’s kinda sad that I am just okay with it. I mean, it started out good. But then I don’t know what happened, it just fall apart. It went down, down, down. And I am bored by it. I was stuck at that 78%. Struggling with it to end.

I keep putting off that last 22%. Cause that part got a long monologue. So I skip those part, like describing the place Ophelia’s in. Really, why does it have to be so long and without any dialogues? And the characters connection? It was just okay. I think I like Hermes more for Ophelia than Aden. :/

It was such a slow paced book in my opinion. And the action part I thought would show, didn’t. I was actually left a bit hanging cause I want to know Ophelia’s powers or new job. I want to see the romance between her and Aden which really really, lack. For crying out loud, she spent most of her time in that awful place and the time with Aden is so short you don’t feel it.

But I give the author kudos for the Mythology part. It was good although not that great. And I liked that part with Aphrodite and Ophelia. That showdown. ;) All in all, it was okay-ish good. So 2.5 stars.
