Sooooo, this book. I am giving it 3 stars because there were some compelling aspects to the book for me. But, my main problem with the book was *drum roll* the heroine, Emma! I am not one to really complain about characters, I am pretty easy to please, but she really just fought her journey the entire way and fought poor Ares the entire way too. I know a lot of people on here were enthralled and read this book in one sitting, but that just wasn't me. Darnit!
