Review - The Hybrid by Venus Morales

THE HYBRID BY VENUS MORALES
PUBLISHED ON FEBRUARY 19TH, 2015
RATING: 2 STARS

Summary from Goodreads
The Ari is the hybrid daughter of a god, not to just any god, but to the almighty god of war, Ares. She is the one and only of her kind, half goddess and half phoenacian (phoenix & vampire). Ares raised his daughter in secrecy until her 18th birthday, when he is forced to return to Olympus and Ari choses not follow after her father and decides to venture out into the mortal realm.
Alaris the prince of the underworld is determined to have Ari, slowly luring her into his web away from Julius arms. Confused and conflicted by her unexpected emotions for two men. Her dark essences take advantage of her state and torments her, pushing her closer to the edge of darkness.

As Ari return's to the bayou to her late mother's coven to regain her crown. Little does she know she is fighting for more than just the crown, she is fighting for her life. She is fighting against her inner darkness that is trying to consume her and an unknown enemy that is trying to kill her. Ari has 7 days to prepare for her trials, 7 days to fight for her life, and if she survives she still has to fulfil the prophecy that has been foretold long before her birth.

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

What wouldn't you do to save those you love? How much of yourself are you willing to sacrifice to save the mortal realm, the heavens and Olympus?


My review
*I received an eBook copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*
When I read the blurb of this book I became excited. The concept was really good. But when I started reading it, I didn't like it at all. I strongly disliked the main character, Ari. She's obnoxious, and thinks she can do everything. There were so many other things I didn't like about her. And I hate how she called Julius angelboy.

After reading a bit, the book became irritating for me. And I was happy when the book ended. The only reason I didn't give this book one star, was because of the elements of Greek mythology.
