My review of From Origins...

For those of you who haven't read this series yet, don't worry I'll leave this as a spoiler free review! 

Mary Ting has done it again, she's written yet another amazing book in the Descendant Prophecies series! From Origins was just as enthralling for me as the first and second book in this series!

What I liked most about this book was the romance. In the first and second installment there was a budding romance between Skylar and Mason, with some seriously swoon-worthy moments! This is the third book in the series and let me just say the romance was sizzling! Oh and lots of kissing! Skylar and Mason are now one of my all-time-favorite fictional couples!

This series has some of the best villains written into the storyline! Some I loved and some I loved to hate! One of which was Hephaestus. I can see why Mary decided to name a villain with this name, I kept calling him Hepatitis. Of course after looking up the pronunciation (he-FEE-stus) I still reverted back to Hepatitis a few times. ;) 

Now what would a few good villains be without a FEW (yes more than one!) completely un-guessable plot twist? I thought I had everything figured out, ONCE AGAIN then out of nowhere something happens that you will NEVER guess! 

Okay, so far we have sexy romance, wonderfully written villains and more than one unexpected plot twist. What if I told you there's a HUGE cliffhanger? 

Ahh I loved this one! Pretty much all of my favorite elements rolled into one amazing story.
