#SneakPeekSunday Review: Radiant Sin by Katee Roberts

There's nowhere more dangerous than Olympus...and no one more captivating than its golden god: Apollo. Keeper of secrets, master of his shining realm...and the only man I am powerless to deny.

*A scorchingly hot modern retelling of Apollo and Cassandra.*

As a disgraced member of a fallen house, Cassandra Gataki has seen firsthand what comes from trusting the venomous Thirteen. But when the maddeningly gorgeous and kind Apollo asks her to go undercover as his plus-one at a week-long party hosted by a dangerous new power player...Cassandra reluctantly agrees to have his back.

On one condition: when it's all over, and Apollo has the ammunition he needs to protect Olympus, she and her sister will be allowed to leave. For good.

Apollo may be the city's official spymaster, but it's his ability to inspire others that keeps him at the top. Despite what the rest of Olympus says, there's no one he trusts more than Cassandra. Yet even as their fake relationship takes a wicked turn for the scaldingly hot, a very real danger surfaces... threatening not only Cassandra and Apollo, but the very heart of Olympus itself.

I received a copy of this sneak peek through Netgalley. This is my honest review. 

Y'all! This sneak peek has me so intrigued. Granted I am a sucker for most classic story retellings, at least the well known ones like Greek mythology. The way modern day Olympus has been portrayed here feels very plausible. While I'm not as familiar with Greek mythology as I am with fairy tales, the brief glimpse of political machinations I got in this sneak peek felt pretty accurate as well. Things have never been all flowers and sausages in Olympus and that clearly still holds true here. 

There really isn't much else that I can say about this story as I only had a brief glimpse into it so far, but it has definitely whetted my appetite to read more of it in the future when it becomes available. I also need to check my bookshelves because I think I won a copy of Neon Gods, the first book in the series, through Goodreads a little while back, and if I did, I definitely need to read that sooner rather than later. - Katie
