Publisher's Summary

Birthdays suck!
For her 18th, Mirissa Colson receives a package from the mother who abandoned her over a decade ago. The family secret it reveals transforms her life from trying on prom dresses to battling an ancient race of demons. Thanks, Mom.
Her 19th brings forth an even more treacherous foe - one maniacal demi-god bent on ruling the world. So much for dating. Thankfully, the years of martial arts and sharpshooter training her ex-Navy SEAL dad put her through gives her the perfect skill-set to build upon.
When she's called on to save the world - literally - Mirissa finds she has a lot more in her arsenal than just a mean roundhouse kick. Burgeoning powers she previously thought impossible, like controlling the elements and sensory expansion, give her some confidence. But when she is propelled into a world teeming with preternatural beings - all with powers of their own - she finds herself outmatched and outgunned.

4.5/5 A Twist on Super Heroes

Summary: Marissa discovers some intriguing powers and finds herself at the center of a much larger conflict.

Additional Comments:
- The flashbacks at the beginning were a tad difficult to follow.
- Fight scenes were excellent.
- Marissa came across as whiny at first, but by the end, she's pretty cool.
- Characters: Marin and Steve are also interesting characters. There's a whole host of other Omega Group characters with intriguing powers.
- I enjoyed the way this story wove in Greek gods/goddesses, demigods, and amazon warriors.
- The narrator's performance was good.
- Once the plot settled after the flashbacks it moved forward with great speed and nice tension.
- Overall, this is an awesome YA story about a young woman just discovering her destiny.

Conclusion: Quick, entertaining YA adventure.

A fun fantasy read

This is not normally the kind of book I read, but I have to say that I rather enjoyed it. I would consider it a YA modern paranormal fantasy. I'm fascinated with the legends of the Amazons, so that is one reason this book appealed to me. It is packed with action and keeps the reader engaged and wanting more. I listened to the Audible audio version narrated by Melissa Chatwood, and I liked the narration. She has a nice voice and gives characters distinct voices. If you enjoy YA fantasy, I would recommend this one. Its a fun read.
