Endangered by Dani Hoots - Review - Giveaway!

Endangered (Daughter of Hades #1)
Dani Hoots
Genre: YA Urban Fantasy
Release Date: May 13th 2016

Summary from Goodreads: 

Chrys has been in the Underworld for thousands of years, hidden away by her father, Hades, from all of the other gods. He's afraid that if someone finds out about her, they will destroy her because of the dichotomous power that she holds, the power of life and death. So she has remained in the Palace of Hades all her life, making very few friends and always bored out of her mind.

Huntley would have never guessed that after he died he would wake up with a beautiful girl standing over him. And that she would be the Dark Lord of the Underworld's daughter. Yet, for some reason, she keeps him around as her tutor, as if he knows anything about the world. But Huntley knows that all she really wants is a friend; being trapped in the Underworld can get pretty lonely. 

That is, until Chrys decides she wants to run away to the human world after a big fight with her mother Persephone. Chrys claims her father is just over reacting and that nothing bad will come of it. There's no way that the gods will notice she's there for only a couple of days...right?

My Rating: 

3.5 Stars
(I recived this book free form the author in exchange for my honest review)

I love Greek mythology, so this book sparked my interest right away. It was a nice take on the matter but I wasn't feeling it as much ask wanted. Don't get me wrong I quite enjoyed this read, it was for me not as lush as I wanted it to be.

The opening is where I'm finding most of my turmoil about this wonder. Chrys, I was not a fan of. For a goddess who's been alive for God knows, was for me too immature. I didn't like the typical YA opening or how the parent/s had to be the catalyst that starts everything. It wasn't original enough for me.

As the story went on, it did pick up. I loved the writing style and the smooth transitions. The world building was okay, though at times I felt there was a little too much description of non important items. I'm a big girl I can fill in the blanks.

Overall I did enjoy this read, and I will be following this series to see what shenanigans Chrys lands herself in. I recommend this book. It's a light fun read with lots of action to get your heart pounding.

Happy Reading
