Ari, is the daughter of Ares; the God of War. Half Goddess & half Phoenician, raised in secrecy by her father until her 18th birthday. Ari, ventures out into the mortal realm & crosses paths with an archangel Julius, who bears a message from a seer.

Ari, needs to regain her late mother's crown. But, first must complete a series of trials. Little does she know, she's fighting for her life. Given, only 7 days to prepare, Ari is not only fighting against her inner darkness that is trying to consume her, she now has an unknown enemy that keeps trying to kill her.

Ari doesn't know who she can trust, when she can't even trust herself. Ari does the one thing she knows she must do to survive; by forging herself into the weapon she was born to be.

The setting of Supernatural creatures in Louisiana did have an air of familiarity about it. It reminded me of stories like True Blood and The Originals. The story itself, was rather unique. Instead of your typical combination of Vampires and Werewolves, The Hybrid explored a world that included Demi-Gods and Greek Mythology. Ari, is the daughter of the Greek God of War Ares, and raised in secrecy by him until he is forced to return to Olympus on her 18th birthday.

The characters were well developed and I found myself easily getting pulled into their world!

The book had an overall speedy nature. It was beautifully set up but my disappointment was in the conclusion of the story. It all happened too quickly. I missed the build up and excitement of how things were going to turn out because just as soon as they had started wrapping up, it felt like it was already over.

There was definitely some structural issues with the story but there is certainly a lot of potential for this series and I can't wait to see where it goes next. I received this book in exchange for honest review.

Who am I, you ask? I am a woman who wears many hats. A mother of 3 wonderful boys is my first, and foremost priority. Then it trickles down from there, I'm a wife, an awesome cook, and a mommy to two dogs and a lazy loveable cat. Then there's my alternate life.. The writer :-) she is the kid who refuses to grow up. Stuck in a mind state of a teenager, who still has imaginary friends. The two halves of me get along great!! As long as I let the writer out, and listen to my imaginary friends tell me their stories. I enjoy my time with my imaginary friends . Without them we wouldn't have books or movies :-)

The life of a writer is who you're born to be, not a job you just take on. It's who I am, who I'll always be. -Venus
