A seemingly normal young woman with a love and passion for the sea, Serena makes a drastic change and moves to Hawaii to follow her dreams of becoming a marine biologist. But she soon discovers that her mother has carried a secret about her all her life that will change everything.
Thetis, a sea nymph, goddess of water, daughter of the ancient sea god Nereus was banished from Atlantis and Olympia to live amongst the human realm in fear of a prophecy foretold that she would bear a child from Zeus, a child more powerful than Zeus himself. A child who could flip the tides and overthrow the king of the Gods. Zeus, and all the Olympian gods could not allow this prophecy to take place, and give birth to a figure of cosmic capacity, capable of unsettling the divine order. For thousands of years, it was believed that the prophecy was avoided…until Iris, female messenger of the gods brings forth a message that will change everything! After all, it was foolish to believe that one could escape destiny.

A book of Greek mythology with all the gods.
The book begins with a family tree that is self-explanatory. I deeply appreciate when author provide such things that make it easier for us to comprehend details. It’s a very engrossing book. I used to dwell in between the lines of this book because I love read greek mythology so much. I felt a little sad for Serena a bit because she had been kept away from the truth about her mother for so long.
As the story begins we are eventually introduced with Thetis who is the goddess of sea and she possessed the power to change her shape at will. According the the prophecy she was destined to bear a son greater than his father Zeus, just as Zeus had dethroned his father to lead the succeeding pantheon. You will have to read the book to know what happens next.
Did you know? According to Greek mythology Zeus is the god of the sky, the chief Greek deity, Zeus is considered the ruler, protector, and father of all gods and humans. Zeus is often depicted as an older man with a beard and is represented by symbols such as the lightning bolt and the eagle.
If you are a mythology lover, you don’t want to miss out on this book. It’s not just a mere story. I felt like I was living in it, as though I was a part of the whole tale.
