My review of From Deities...
Sometimes a book comes around that you love so much your speechless. This is one of those books! (Besides, who wants to read a super long review when you got lots of books to read!)

  • Huge plot twist that SHOCKED me! 
    • Most of you know how much I love a plot twist that I can't guess. Well not only couldn't I guess this one but it left me jaw-dropped! 
  • Character development is on point!
    • I'm already in love with these characters from reading book one, From Gods. They are realistic, relatable and fun! Well we get to see them develop a hundredfold (which I didn't think was possible, they were already great!) in this book!
  • And the plot thickens!
    • Of course I won't spoil it for you for guys...the already amazing plot gets even more intricate and of course complicated (in a good way!) which had me on the edge of my seat! 
  • Romance has progressed beautifully and most importantly REALISTICALLY! 
    • Everything between Skylar and Mason felt incredibly other words can describe how I felt about this couple! 
By the end of this book I just wanted to immerse myself in this series and never leave! I would recommend this to anyone with a heartbeat!

Mary Ting, thank you for sharing this heartfelt, action-packed story with your readers! 


  1. Sounds like a really intriguing read - will deff be checking out this series, thanks for sharing! :)

All About That Cover: The Awakening (The Vampire Diaries #1) by L.J. Smith - An oldie but a goodie!

"All About That Cover" is a weekly feature that focuses on the differences between various book covers of the same book, such as cover changes, covers from different countries as well as special editions. 
Original Cover vs. TV tie-in edition

I don't know about y'all but I will always love the original cover. There's just something about YA book covers from the 90's. Notice the raven feather, too bad they didn't give Daemon shifting powers in the show!
