Promise of Shadows by Justina Ireland - OPTIONAL

Ireland, Justina  Promise of Shadows, 371 pgs.  Simon and Schuster, 2014.  $17.99  Content:   Language: PG-13 (50 swears); Mature Content: PG-13; Violence: PG-13.  

Zephyr is in the Underworld for killing the minor god who killed Zephyr’s sister.  Although it is supposed to be impossible to kill a god, Zephyr called on some dark power and did what no other demi-god has been able to do.  Now Zephyr is being pursued by both sides of a brewing war between the gods and she just wants to find her sister happy in the afterlife.   

Zephyr is a strong character and fun to follow.  The world delves into the Greek gods with an interesting take on the demigods.  The violence is a gruesome slit throat and a torturous murder.  The mature content is just kissing, but I was super annoyed that she was willing to sleep with a guy that she has only kissed twice.   

MS, HS-OPTIONAL.  Reviewer, C. Peterson.
