Review for Kallos

Today I'm featuring a book spotlight and review for Kallos, a YA novel by Khelsey Jackson.

Book Blurb:

Kallos is a shy sixteen year old girl unready to face the world, but when she meets Ian and Sean Hunter the world will open up for her. Secrets revealed are too much to bear and her past life as a goddess, unimaginable. A visit from the goddess Aphrodite, Kallos is told her soul mate must be found or her life will be forfeit. Kallos desperate to find her one true match has discovered she may have two possibilities. Kallos has a choice to make and her decisions may have life ending consequences.
My Review:
Imaginative story that takes you for a ride into the world of Greek mythology with a modern twist.
I was highly impressed by the author’s ability to weave such a fantastic story and create characters I, as the reader, could not help but fall in love with.
I enjoyed the plot for it was refreshing and new. The love triangle (yes, I have my favorite between the guy but I choose to keep that a secret) made me want to chew my nails off. The interaction between the main characters was definitely nerve wracking for me at times but I loved the fact that it made go, “Awww,” at times.
This is definitely a nice romance, so different, yet similar to other books that are out there. The ending was definitely a shocker because it made me want to know about the story and the characters. I did not want the story to end at all and because I NEED to know what happens next, I’ll definitely be picking the sequel up.
About the author:
Khelsey hails from the Sunshine State (California) but moved to Minnesota when she was 11 years old. Her grandmother raised her and her brother. When she was 18 she did what any sane teen would do and moved to the city of sin, Las Vegas NV. There she met her handsome husband and the rest is history. She loves to read, and will read almost anything guess when you have read just about everything, the only next logical step is to write.
