Zova Books for sending me a copy of Oppression, by: Jessica Therrien to read and review I was so excited when I received this book as I was dying to read it
Elyse knows what it means to keep a secret. She's been keeping secrets her whole life. Two, actually. First, that she ages five times slower than the average person, so that while she looks eighteen years old, she's closer to eighty. Second, that her blood has a mysterious power to heal. For Elyse, these things don't make her special. They make life dangerous. After the death of her parents, she's been careful to keep her secret as closely guarded as possible. Now, only one other person in the world knows about her age and ability. Or so she thinks. Elyse is not the only one keeping secrets. There are others like her all over the world, descendants of the very people the Greeks considered gods. She is one of them, and they have been waiting for her for a long time. Among so many of her kind, she should not be very remarkable--except for the prophecy. Some believe she will put an end to traditions, safeguarded by violence, which have oppressed her people for centuries. Others are determined to keep her from doing just that. But for Elyse, the game is just beginning--and she's not entirely willing to play by their rules.
I love it when a book wastes no time getting to the action? And let me tell you its action packed right from the start. Not even three pages into the opening scene and BAM! A chilling moment I swear, I could have just screamed (which I’m sure I did) And those Something’s just kept on coming from then on.
Oppression took a very unique take on Greek mythology. Which I have always been fascinated by mythology especially in movies and Oppression didn’t fail to disappoint as a book on Greek mythology and I love anything supernatural so I was hooked right from the start seriously I could never get enough.
Elyse was a strong character who I found no matter how much was thrown at her she always wanted to put others before herself now come on how many people are like that now days her bond with her best friend Anna was amazing no matter what happen they were always there for one another I felt there connection leap of off the page at me it was endearing and sweet. Now William (Ahhh!) doesn’t every woman in the world want a man who will do anything and I mean anything to protect the woman he loves I love how he is so patient with Elyse their love is so genuine new and fresh.
Ryder I don’t think I have ever hated a character as much I did him he deserved everything and anything that happen to him and Kara really surprised me I thought she was going to turn out one way but then another BAM!
My Final Thoughts:
Oppression is a must read from start to finish it’s a book that you’ll never want to put down Jessica really draws you in as if your part of the story I’m so excited for the next installment which can’t come any sooner and I agree with Kelly movie please !
