Can Apollo’s curse be broken?
Seventeen-year-old Hope Nicholas is done running. Apollo’s curse has ruled her entire life, limiting her choices and robbing her of the things that matter most. But she refuses to live in fear any longer. In fact, she’s ready to do whatever it takes to break the god’s power over her existence.
When the goddess Artemis instructs Hope to impersonate a demigod and infiltrate a conservatory to get access to the Olympian library, she doesn’t hesitate. As she sees it, there’s nothing left to lose.
But once inside, Hope discovers the only way to get what she needs is to work with her sworn enemies. As the lines between demigod and monster are crossed again and again, Hope has to dig deep for the courage to accept her fate or fight for the freedom to save herself.

Demigods and Monsters is the second book in the Sphinx series.

Review of Curse of the Sphinx book 1

My Review
Ever since I finished the first one I have been waiting on the second one. Yay! It's here.

I liked book 1 better but this was still a good read. This is a transition book. You can tell that it is setting the next book up. It is mostly training and background information. We met a few new characters as well. A love triangle is introduced. So fair warning on that. I think I'm on team Athan. I suspect that Xan may have Athan beat in the body department but Athan seems to have had Hope's back since he met her.

This started off at a slow pace for me but it picks up as it goes along especially toward the end. Apollo is no joke! What he did to his sons highlights the way the Gods are portrayed in the series. The way the books ends, I'm thinking that Hope (and me) will finally find some answers. 

Note: You do need to read this series in order.
