Once the Greeks forced their male gods upon the world, the belief in the power of women was severed. For centuries it has been thought that the wisdom of the high priestesses perished at the hand of the patriarchs—but now the ancient Book of Sophia has surfaced. Its pages contain the truths hidden by history, and the sacred knowledge for the coming age. And it is looking for Skylar Southmartin. Busy picking up the pieces after her mother’s untimely death and trying to finish her veterinary degree, Skylar has no idea that she is the link between four mystical women in her life, and the perfect storm the Great Mothers have been waiting for. Meanwhile, she’s just reconnected with the first and only love of her life, Argan—but Joshua, a dangerous, irresistible stranger, threatens to ruin everything she’s trying to build. Amidst unraveling family secrets that shatter her views of the world and call into question everything she’s ever known, Skylar must fight off Joshua’s maddening pull and get a handle on her own budding powers—before it’s too late.
My Thoughts –
Firstly I’d like to thank SparkPress and Netgalley for the opportunity to read this book.
This book starts with a great looks in the form of Skylar Southmartins Mum. She loses her battle with cancer. Skylar delves into finishing her veterinary degree but soon discovers family secrets, an unknown link between 4 other women and a love triangle. Not to mention a mystical book all about Skylar’s past, present and even her future.
The books lore seemed to be well researched and as someone who has never heard of Akashic lore before it has made me want to learn more about it.
There is nothing in the synopsis about the possibility of sexual scenes. So this could have been mentioned, especially as it’s a young adult book.
My favourite character wasn’t the main character but someone that came into Skylar’s life when she went on to finish her degree. That person was Ronnie, she seemed strong willed and to me, a bit of a heroine on her own. I won’t go too much into her as I’d end up giving away spoilers.
I’m going to give this book 3/5 as although in a lot of respects it was good and worth the read, I felt like you didn’t really get to know characters and then before you know it, you’ve learned all the secrets you need to and it’s the end of the book. I’d still recommend reading though.
