Fast-paced, slightly comical, and definitely full of interesting mythological elements, Angie Fox’s Immortally Yours, will have you wondering what it would be like to be a mortal in a world filled with larger-than-life Gods. And could those hunky, all-powerful heroes really be as great as they seem?
Dr. Petra Robichaud isn’t really ordinary but the gods don’t know that…at least she hopes they don’t. If they did she’d be sorely punished for her ability to communicate with spirits. In the otherworld war she’d been drafted into it was rare that the participants actually expired, but her ability to communicate with spirits made her something of a liability to certain parties. But when a certain demi-god is on her operating table with a knife she’d had in her possession before, she felt a great need to save him. And so the prophecy fulfillment began for her…
Commander Galen of Delphi is fatally wounded but when his spirit escapes his body, Dr. Robichaud forces it back in and saves him. He knows what he saw and felt, but at first she keeps denying it. Only when her secret is out do the two start to believe she’s part of a prophecy that will help bring peace to a nasty battle that’s raged for a very long time. But in the end will the two find a happy ever after?
While I wasn’t really sure I would, I enjoyed Immortally Yours. It took a little while to get into the story, to figure out all the characters and the world. But once you get past the strange yet normal military-type atmosphere, you could start to enjoy the characters and their interaction. I also had a bit of time believing there would be a happy ending for Petra and Galen, but it really worked for me in the end. If you like strange and unusual stories that are filled with humor and action, this is a great book to read.
