Underworld| Mini Review: Myths of Immortality by Raye Wagner


Published on January 12, 2017

Genre: Mythology, New Adult

Rating: ★★★



In the realm of the dead, there are no lies.
Hope Nicholas is desperate to believe that the truth will set her free from the bindings of Apollo’s curse. But to get the truth, she must travel to the Underworld, a feat near impossible for the living. The gods there have their own agendas and, forced to forge alliances with the most unlikely allies, Hope will find that death is not the worst torment of the Underworld.
Athan Michael spent months chasing Hope, only to have her disappear once again. And when he discovers her destination, he knows the treacherous journey to the Underworld is one he cannot take alone. Forced to put aside his past with Xan and Dahlia, the three demigods embark on their own quest. But the past will not stay buried, and Athan must decide how much he’s willing to sacrifice to help Hope break the curse.
Told in dual points of view, Myths of Immortality is a tense, action-packed story that will leave you begging for the next installment of The Sphinx series.

This is my mini review for the Myths of Immortality, the 3rd book in the Curse of the Sphinx Series. You should read the Curse of the Sphinx and Demigods and Monsters first before diving into this review. Beware it may contain spoilers.

The story revolves around the journey to the Underworld. While Athan is still recovering from the incident between the Skia, Hope leaves the conservatory to find some answers on how to break the curse. The story also focuses on the sacrifices that demigods will make for the sake of Hope, mending a broken friendship between Athan and Xan, and it will test Hope and her friends’ trust.

Things that I loved in the story:

  1. it is not only Hope’s POV but also Athan’s. Though I don’t like Athan from the very start of the book, adding point of view in the story is a refreshing start.
  2. the story is getting more serious and intense because Hope went to Underworld believing that the Hades will help her. As the matter of fact, this journey to the Underworld sounds easy but this story is full of surprises. Everything might turn tables.
  3. also…the GODS from Olympus is getting crazier.

I loved how the writing of the story. Underworld is one of the things I like in Mythology and the writer delves more to that world. Truly, Raye never failed me on how the story goes.

The character development is interesting since lot of things happened from previous books and here I saw how Hope molds her to become a strong woman.

I am so excited to read the 4th book because the story is getting intense.


What are your thoughts on Raye Wagner’s 3rd book?
