*Review* From Titans by Mary Ting

Genre: YA/Paranormal
Published: June 24, 2016
Pages: 215


Everyone is searching for Mason. 

Zeus sent Hermes, and the Oracles have used their magic, with no success. A sparkle of hope arises when Eris, the goddess of Chaos, sends an invitation to her wedding engagement party. She’s holding Mason hostage, and Skylar and her friends only need permission to enter Eris’s world to rescue him. 

At the party, Eris gives them one condition: In exchange for Mason, they must travel to the Land of Reverse and bring back the bottle of gold water King Midas used to wash himself free of his gift. Further chaos follows when Eris not only sets up a hunt in the Labyrinth of Crete, but makes a bargain with the Titans she rescued. 

The Titans possess power more than anyone anticipated, and Cronus is hungry for revenge after his own children locked him up in Tartarus. No one is safe. Not even the humans.


I was hired to proofread this book. Ms. Ting is probably aware that I would be reviewing because we have worked together in the past, but it was not part of our agreement. I just review every book I read. If you feel that my connection to the book makes my review biased, so be it, but this is my honest review.

I have actually read this entire series (I feel like I can't say that about very many series anymore) so I already felt a connection with these characters. I do highly recommend you read the series in order, as you will at the very least be exposed to some pretty big spoilers for the early books if you don't. I've wanted these characters to get an HEA since book one, and have consistently found myself somewhat stymied on that score, time and time again. Things just kept going wrong!

I felt like a lot of this story was pretty predictable. I was not surprised by the ultimate outcome, and a part of me wishes that more painful sacrifices had been made. I was intrigued by the mystery at the beginning of the story. And even though it was predictable, I was ultimately satisfied with the story arc, because sometimes you just want to be right. 

Overall I give From Titans 3.75 stars. - Katie
