Rating: ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

Hope Nicholas is desperate to believe that the truth will set her free from the bindings of Apollo's curse. But to get the truth, she must travel to the Underworld, a feat near impossible for the living. The gods there have their own agendas and, forced to forge alliances with the most unlikely allies, Hope will find that death is not the worst torment of the Underworld.

Athan Michael spent months chasing Hope, only to have her disappear once again. And when he discovers her destination, he knows the treacherous journey to the Underworld is one he cannot take alone. Forced to put aside his past with Xan and Dahlia, the three demigods embark on their own quest. But the past will not stay buried, and Athan must decide how much he's willing to sacrifice to help Hope break the curse.

Told in dual points of view, Myths of Immortality is a tense, action-packed story that will leave you begging for the next installment of The Sphinx series.

The Sphinx series is perfect for fans of urban fantasy with a mythic twist!


My Review
This has become one of my favorite series. Each book picks up where the last one left off. In this third installment, Hope is trying to find a way to break the Sphinx curse. She ends up going to the Underworld for answers and boy do she get some.

There are some interesting reflections along the way. Xan and Athan story is told together while Hope has her pov. There is a lot going on and definitely keeps your attention.

I wouldn't say this is a stand alone. If you are like me then you could read it and still appreciate the story that was told but you would definitely notice that you are missing out on a back story.

About the Author
Raye Wagner grew up in Seattle, the second of eight children, and learned to escape chaos through the pages of fiction. As a youth, she read the likes of David Eddings, Leon Uris, and Jane Austen. Inspired by a fictional character, Raye pursued a career in nursing, thinking to help the world one patient at a time.
One summer afternoon, when her then young children were playing in the pool, a plot dropped into her head, and she started writing.
She enjoys baking, puzzles, Tae Kwon Do, and the sound of waves lapping at the sand. She lives with her husband and three children in Middle Tennessee.

Origin of the Sphinx, a novella detailing the story leading up to the creation of the mythological creature, is her first publication. It is the beginning of the Sphinx series.

Curse of the Sphinx, the first book in the series, is completed, and set to be released in August 2015.
