To say that Sophie Bloom is at the top of her game with one only week until spring equinox and the final showdown with Zeus and Hades would be, well, lying. The Goddess of Spring feels more like the Goddess of Bzz Thanks For Playing than the savior of humanity. And could her relationships be any more messed up?

Good times.

Sophie is convinced that things can’t get any worse than crawling back to her mother Demeter and begging for help. But she’s about to find out how very wrong she is.

It’s a race against time for Sophie to implement the big battle strategy in the YA romantic comedy/Greek mythology finale My Life From Hell. Love meets comedy with a whole lot of sass in book three of this teen fantasy romance series. Save herself; save the world. Humanity may be screwed.

 
 
I just LOVE this series! I can't even stress how much you guys need to read it! If you're a fan of mythology and snarky, sassy teenagers these are the books for you! Darling has done such an awesome job of transforming the Persephone myth and giving it some flair! Sophie Bloom is by far one of my favorite heroines- she is snarky, fun, and completely kickass! Her crew is made of awesome and I loved how much voice Darling gave to her secondary characters. Theo, Fee, Hannah, Pierce, and Kai all make up a rather motley crew, but they are essential to the development of this series. Their added humor and loyalty is what makes them so memorable and I wish I had a group of friends like them!
 
And then there's Kai. Prince of the Underworld. Bane of Sophie's existence. Love of her life. KAI. I can't even. I love their relationship so much. Kai is without a doubt, 100% bad boy, cause you know- PRINCE of the UNDERWORLD. But OMG- the boy is not without a heart. And I love how he and Sophie can't get enough of one another one minute and then ready to throw down the next. They have this magnetic attraction- they can't stay away from each other, no matter what the other has done, and while it sounds frustrating- their back and forth banter is what really makes their relationship awesome. Did I mention all the kissing? Oh yeah! There's plenty of it in this final book for all you romantics!
 
Time is running out for Sophie and the gang. They are days away from the spring equinox and in turn, the end of the world as we know it. Hades and Zeus have teamed up to rid the world of humanity and Sophie is caught in the crosshairs. It is up to her to stop them, make things right with Kai, and figure out where the ritual is to be held.... no pressure, right?
 
We see some old enemies, as well as meet some new... friends? in this one. We also get to take a trip down to the Underworld, which is always exciting. One of my favorites was Oizys. She is totally awesome and I love seeing her and Sophie interact with one another. They have that back and forth banter her and Kai do and I just love seeing all the snark and sass!
 
I obviously don't want to spoil anything, but I feel Darling did the final book in her series justice. I love how everything came together and she did a great job of making sure she resolved all plot points and storylines. There were a few moments I felt my heart constrict and I was cursing the gods above for how manipulative and malicious Felicia (Sophie's stepmother) is. Ugh. That woman.
 
I love the message behind the prophecy. I can't say much- but Sophie really sees herself in a different light by the end and it is really empowering.
 
Have I convinced you yet to give this awesome series a try? Let's put it this way: You get a snarky heroine, a sexy, swoon-worthy love interest, lots of kissing, a great group of friends that will make you laugh out loud, a new twist on mythology, AND did I mention LOTS OF KISSING?

  6. I love Mythology! This sounds like such a great book! I love dories with a lot of snarky and sassy banter, as well as kissing! The heated back and forth between the main characters sounds like it makes for a great story! Kai sounds like the kind of bad boy we all love to swoon over!
