True to form Charlie Holmberg has created another brilliant series, one filled with brilliantly crafted plotlines, compelling and unique characters and her world building skills are well…out of this world!
Myths and Mortals picks up right where Smoke and Summons left off. Sandis is no longer a vessel for Ireth and living with the only family she has, her Uncle. Although grateful for having somewhere to go now that she is no longer a numina, she is still grieving, terrified and feels alone in the world. Still destroyed by Rone’s betrayal and plagued by bad dreams of the vessels left behind and of Kolossus, a numen, who can destroy humanity. Although she lives her life doing unusual jobs for her corrupt Uncle. When she refuses a particularly unsavoury one, he kicks her out without anywhere to go, there is only one person she can think of…Rone. Rone managed to get his mother across the border to safety and even though he had papers to join her, he has stayed behind. Rone won’t rest until he knows Sandis is alright and he hopes to have her understand why he betrayed her.
Although Sandis doesn’t completely trust Rone when they are hunted by an assassin and learn that Kazen might still be alive and looking for a new vessel for Kolossus they team up. The two start out trying to find the other vessels to save them from a fate worse than death. On their journey, they pick up allies and make enemies as they find clues to Kazan’s whereabouts all leading to one terrifying cliffhanger.
All in all, a fantastic, fun series that I would highly recommend for young and old alike.
