I found myself engrossed through the work. It was very well written and the plot and characters written with a mythological style. I found it interesting and innovative and Shannon McRoberts truly did a wonderful job. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys delving into a magical land they've never ventured into before...and be prepared to meet some new friends on the way, while learning new things about characters you thought you once knew! ~ The Indigo Quill
The characters are one of a kind and the author emotes her emotions through her writing. Very Good novel.~Pick Your Poison Book Reviews

About the Author:
My name is Shannon McRoberts. I am an independent artist, author, and poet. I have been self-publishing books of all kinds since 2005. My first book was a poetry book called Poetry for the Chronically Heart Broken and Depressed. That book has since been replaced with a more robust collection called Erosion of the Heart. I am currently working on bringing this book to paper format and expanded distribution through Smashwords.
My first ever sci-fi book, The Secret of Genetic Corp X, has been compared to Blade Runner. I am also currently working on having this book brought back to a paper edition.
My favorite series, The Daughter of Ares Chronicles, features Athine, an immortal born goddess that I created for the series. In this series, I take mythologies of all kinds and turn them on their ears!
When I am not working or creating fantasy worlds for my characters to live in I enjoy being lost in MMORPGs, good books, and in the company of my friends and family.
I currently live in Kentucky with my wonderful husband and beautiful daughter.
