Sleeping Gods by Kristin R. Campbell
This book was an exhilarating continuation of the Lunangelique series. I really love Campbell's twist on Greek Mythology and Angels. The Sleeping Gods is a bit more angsty too!
Cover/ writing style
I really like the cover, it is mysterious. I like Campbell's writing style and the first person POV. Lexi's voice is believable.
Lexi would so be my bff.. she is snarky, determined, and strong, yet slightly vulnerable. She was depressed at first, because the love of her life Cole left her, but she moved on. I could compeletely relate to her.
I loved the setting changes in this story!!! I don't want to give too much away about it, but I'd reallllly like to visit the cities Lexi and her friends visit on their trip.
Swoonworthy scale: 7.5
This book is pretty swoony! I love Cole and want so bad to forgive him for leaving. He was only trying to do what was right for Lexi. Plus the fact that he is a total hottie helps ;)
We get to meet a few Gods and Demi-gods in this book and I love everyone of them! I adore mythology.
Alex and Lexi finish up their senior year of high school and have plans to tour abroad. In the absence of Cole, Lexi is forced to pick up the pieces of her broken heart. Luckily, (with the persuasion of her father) Patryck is there to help her. In the middle of their tour, it is decided that the group, along with Edmund their father, and a few new friends should detour to Mount Latmos and awaken the Sleeping Gods. But there are lessons to be learned and obstacles that stand in their way...
If you like the Covenant Series, you'd like this series. I know I do (and really caaaan't wait for the next book in this series!!!!)
Guest Post: How Do You Keep Your Writing Different?
I try to focus more on the dialogue telling the story. I like descriptions; however, sometimes I think authors take it too far and don’t leave much to the imagination. Another thing I notice young adult authors do that I felt I should be different with was all the chastity. Chastity is a great virtue and something that should not be taken lightly. I understand why so many authors want to drill that into their young readers, but in the real world teenagers have sex. That’s the reality. What I think is important is that IF they decide that’s the avenue they want to take, THEN they need to do it safely.
Here is my review for Lunangelique the first book in this series. And if you haven't picked up the books yet... then you should do so now. They are sooo worth the money ($3.00 all together), just click on the links below.
