Caught between life and death, all Callie wants is to live again.
Homicide detective Callie Saunders knows that death isn’t all pearly gates and angels. After being hit by a bus, she finds that it's the ancient gods and goddesses of Greek mythology who are in charge of everything.
So when Hades offers her a deal, she accepts. If she wants to be brought back to life, she’ll have to figure out who is trying to kill his son. But if she fails, both her soul and the world will be destroyed.
With the odds mounting against her, it’ll take everything she has within her to wake up from death. But the rules are constantly changing. And someone wants her to stay dead.
Sci-fi junkie, video game nerd, and wannabe manga artist Erin Hayes writes a lot of things. Sometimes she writes books, like the fantasy mystery Death is but a Dream and the sci-fi middle grade book Jacob Smith is Incredibly Average. You can reach her at firstname.lastname@example.org and she’ll be happy to chat. Especially if you want to debate Star Wars.
The Greek gods never get old fashioned! On the contrary, they too are upgraded, of course your way.
I found out the book Erin Hayes thanks to another Indie-Author that for some (I add to Erin and Giselle) is favorite, Rhiannon Frater. So when I heard about this tour I decided I could not pass up. And I do not regret!
Now, we add Greek mythology , Hades and his family , We have a modern era where technology, fast food, clothing designers, one detective protagonist, a story that flows well and a very creative mind behind it.
Our result: Death is but a Dream!!
Callie Saunders a homicide detective is our girl protagonist, has to solve a case, but the downside is that it is in the Underworld, Hades wants to know who wants to kill his son Plutus, god of wealth. The reward, Callie back to life, the risk: his soul and the world.
The fluidity with which he handled the story is fun, light and with a hint of mystery, takes you by the way that the author wants to show, the characters are authentic and which are typical Greek gods have that personality with staff input seal Erin Hayes and there are many names from Greek mythology that could attract your attention. It shows that Greek mitoligia and in this case the gods can adapt very well to these current seasons.
And let's face it, most of our sexy romantic heroes are describe as the Greek gods as perfect money, fancy clothes and other monads. Who says that real Greek gods can not enjoy those details?
The story is spiced with romance, so, this small but powerful touch will make the history of unexpected changes. Including the end of the story. Take note and go looking for it on your Goodreads to read or Amazon.
I think you may have noticed that I am really excited with the underworld, the changes and the gods. And a funny thing happened to me, perhaps a sign of the Underworld that this was the right place to read the book, I was sitting,I sipping a glass of soda and I enjoying my fries with ketchup and a little chipotle sauce when I read this:
"...The McDonald's next to us was a 24-hour one with the dining area open at all times.
We were the only ones there at that time of night, so I quickly ordered two Big Mac combos for Plutus and I..."
I stared at my Big Mac and then around maybe Plutus and Callie were there., it was a fun experience.
I loved reading it, I enjoy it and I would like the author give us more to read of this kind of story, a continuation or with a new story.
My stars review: 4.5
I received an E-book arc in exchange for an honest review.
