Satyr from the Shadows (The Cursed Satyroi, Book Three)


Mythology will never be the same after the discovery that gods still walk upon this earth and mythological creatures own an inn in Georgia. Daphne is a nymph, captured by Apollo, who wants her for himself. She wants absolutely nothing to do with him. Arrogant god that he is, he deems if he can’t have her no one else can. Introduce chains and a tree, and a few millennia. Melancton is the human Daphne falls in love with, who then ends up cursed in one of those random god-like moments and now lives as a satyr. See, mythology is turning every which way, but that’s perfectly fine. 


Ms. Lewis has created a truly decadent tale of mythological proportions with her finely-crafted novel. Throw away the ancient history tomes and adopt the new concept that Hermes lives in California and satyrs hide away in Georgia. Seriously, just do it!  One will not regret the decision. Characters are precise and the plot is divinely and beautifully developed to make sense. It is easy to imagine this dramatic conflict played out by the Greek gods and taking all of this time to occur. Unfortunately, there are a few editorial errors that detract from the overall flow of the read, but not enough so to turn the reader away. The third in the series, "Satyr from the Shadows" easily stands alone, but definitely draws the reader to want to grab the rest of the series and read it posthaste!
