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

My Review
Callie has missed her father for years. he is the reason she became a homicide detective. After she gets hit by a bus she gets offered a chance to live again. All she has to do is save Hades son and find out who is trying to kill him. Now she is in a world of Gods, Goddesses and more. If she can solve this mystery she will get her life back if she fails she will lose her soul and  the world will go into chaos. She has to solve this fast as she only has so much time and she is beginning to fall for Hades son.

Callie is a wonderful character. She is strong, smart and doesn't give up. She will do whatever she can to keep Plutus safe and she tries her best to fight her feelings for him. Plutus isn't like the other gods. He was born with a few disabilities that make him different. He is a god of something  I wouldn't have thought would be to bad but after seeing it through his eyes I see different. He is great as just when he is about to give up Callie gives him hope. Even with his disabilities he still tries to protect Callie as she does him.

I love books with mythology and this is a fascinating one. You get to see many gods and goddesses and see just how spiteful and selfish some of them can be. I love the addition of some minor characters as well like the Fury. I really liked her. From the start you know it's a mystery and you just have to keep reading to see who it is. I was surprised at who it was but it doesn't stop there. So much more happens you never know where danger is going to appear or who will show up next. I loved all the twist and turns. Not to mention the love that grows between Callie and Plutus. They have something very special and I was surprised at how the book ended. I wanted to know more. That is a sign it is a fascinating book. If you like mythology, action or just an amazing book be sure to pick this one up.

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 and she’ll be happy to chat. Especially if you want to debate Star Wars.
