Book four in the Daughters of Olympus, Their Shade by Charlie Hart and Anastasia James. Tennyson has been living in Styx since she was four years old. Styx is another name for Purgatory before the dead move on to another plane. When she first appeared she was rescued and taught how to live and survive in Styx with Hawthorne. Over years only Tenny and Hawthorne were the ones that aged while others when it was their time would fade after days, weeks, and rarely months. Eventually the two were joined by South and Lennox.
At the beginning of this story the three men in Tenny’s life have admitted to being in love with her. The three guys have no issues with each other loving Tenny but Tenny is unwilling to share her feelings with them. Tenny has noticed that the guys have begun to fade and she is afraid to be without them and to admit that she in return loves them too. At a party in a random house in Styx, Tenny fights with the guys and wanders outside where she sees a guy walking towards the shore. Tenny feels drawn to the stranger but not in a romantic way, though her guys don’t see it that way.
When the stranger arrives he introduces himself as Eric and that he was sent by Gaia and is looking for Harlow’s sister and he had a way to leave Styx back to the world. Can Tenny escape into the world and return Eric back to Harlow?
This is an interesting book 4. I think that book three was my favorite so far, but I did like it. Tenny was an okay main character. She was a little underwhelming as a character and wasn’t my favorite of the sisters introduced, but I feel like she could grow on me. I like the guys in the story though. I like the loop that is given to you when it comes to Hawthorne and the past for the other two. Since the guys are dead and young, explaining how they had died. I think was vital and the ways that they did added so much complex detail to the guys. I have really enjoyed this series and look forward to the next book in the series.
