I am officially a From Gods' Fan!! Can. Not. Wait. For. More. I appreciate that this was NOT a classic fairy tale where the characters immediately fall in love & live happily ever after.

    4. I was so sad when Mary's Crossroads series was over. It was beautifully written and kept me glued to my kindle. To be honest, I was afraid that this series might not be able to live up to the expectations I had. It is not often that an author can have a series I devour and then start a completely new series and have it not disappoint me. Well, Mary Ting managed to actually surpass my expectations. This book was amazing! With a YA feel, but NA age characters, From Gods had me glued to my kindle. [...]

Awesomeness!!I received an ARC copy of Mary Ting’s From Gods and I’m so glad I did.This book is a different genre then the Crossroad’s Saga Series she’s known for.It is “electric” as it blends paranormal romance, mythology (which I love), action and suspense together for an amazing read.Skylar Rome wants to spend the summer with her cousin, Kayla before heading off to college in the fall. Her path crosses with Mason Grand and his brothers. From that moment on strange events start hap [...]

"“I’ll always stare at you, Sky,” he said softly."“From Gods” mi è capitato per le mani grazie alla sua autrice Mary Ting, la stessa di “Something Great”, un libro che ho letteralmente adorato, e della “Crossroad Saga” una serie paranormale con protagonisti una serie di mezzi angeli davvero super fighi.

    9. 'I have received an ARC from the author in return of an honest review.'OMLightning bolts! Mary Ting has done it again. I have to say that I absolutely love everything about this book from the heart wrenching prologue to the cliff-hanger of an epilogue. It takes Greek mythology to a whole other level and then some. Try to imagine what it would be like in this modern day to be a demi-God and have to keep it a secret. Only thing is one person can't be charmed to keep secrets and you can't figure ou [...]

    10. INITIAL THOUGHTSI'm slightly worried as I pick up my kindle to read this, I mean I loved the Crossroads Saga, will I like this too? Will it be as good? My thoughts at 14% "Liking this already" Then at 51% my thoughts were "Definitely warming to the characters of Kayla, Skylar & Mason (loved those two from the beginning of the book) and Nick too. What on earth or descended from heaven is Skylar?MY REVIEWSo the story is that Skylar's dad walked out of her life when she was very young, her moth [...]

    11. Fast-paced drama from Mary Ting with a twist. From Gods was suspenseful with the fun YA touch we have come to know and love from her. This is a tale where all is not what it seems and the characters hide secrets about their past (and their powers), that keep the reader turning pages. This is something sure to please with a hint of things to come from the next installment. Looking forward to more.

    17. Originally posted @ Miranda's Book BlogI loved From Gods so much, I spent every waking moment I had (while I wasn’t working of course.) devouring this book! Why I loved it:The story is both original and reminds me of Twilight at the same time. Romance & love is the central element here, what I LOVED was that it felt real. Their feelings for each other slowly built up in a realistic way throughout the book. Lots of swoon worthy moments that had me smiling!"He interweaved his fingers through [...]

    18. My review:I think many readers who love Mary Ting's Crossroads Saga were curious to see, if they will love From Gods us much, because the expectations were high. I am no different, I was little afraid, if Fro Gods would be as good. It was was!First of all, let me say, that I love Greek mythology and I tend to be quite critical on fantasy books based on Greek mythology. But Mary Ting delivered again! Not only that, but she created an interesting and well-written world which kept surprising me.Plo [...]

    19. From Gods, a new twist on Greek Mythology by Author Mary Ting had me replaying the whole book back through my head DAYS after finishing the last page. Demi-Gods, Vultures, Seers…the cast, setting and story line that Mary Ting has created captures you in modern day and but lets you see life through the eyes of the descendants of ancient Greek Gods.

    20. I received an ARC from Mary Ting. I was excited and nervous to read From Gods. Being a Crossroads Saga fan and now her new adult, Something Great, I didn't know what to expect. I was not disappointed! I can now add From Gods as one of my favorite read. I love the twist and turns in this story not to mention hot guys with superpowers. I can not wait for book 2!

    21. I've received an ARC. I was excited to read a new series from Mary Ting and she did not disappoint. I love the the relationship between Mason and Skylar and the twist and turns. I could not put it down!!!

    22. I received an ARC from author Mary Ting. I'm adding From Gods to my favorite list of books. This was a fantastic read with lots of action, romance, and twist and turns. If you love books about Greek mythology, you will love From Gods.

    23. I was so excited when I won an ARC by Mary Ting. I've enjoyed this so much!!! I love what Mason can do with his powers.

    24. I received an ARC from the author. This story was very unique in characters and how she tied in Greek mythology. Loved it. I can't wait for the sequel. Mason will electrify you!!!

    25. SO difficult to follow plus, I didn't care about Mason or Skylar. I liked Kayla, not enough to continue though.

    26. From Gods is an achingly beautiful and superbly electrifying journey of impossible self-discovery, true life-changing love, and non-stop adventure. This is one story that I just couldn’t let go of. The magnetic draw of the exquisite characters and the masterful plot proved too much for me to be able to put this book down until I reached the end. My love of mythology, the lost art of chivalry, and the transforming power of pure love held my heart captive, and I was unable to remove my eyes from [...]

    27. I Received An ARC Of This Book In Exchange For My Honest Review!This is the first book I've read by Mary Ting and can I say that I felt the lightning while reading this book. By the end of the first chapter I was hooked on this book and I knew that this would be one the first of Mary Ting's books I was gonna read.When Skylar Rome was 8 years old her dad left her and her mom. We jump ahead 10 years and Skylar is graduating from high school and getting ready to head off to her Auntie Kelly and Cou [...]

    28. Everyone knows by now that I am a mythology addict. I just gobble it all up. I always loved mythology in high school and college (I almost minored in greek studies. I had enough classes to.) And then once I discovered Young Adult mythology books it was like the gods were smiling at me. Two of my favorite things combines together. Umm, YES PLEASE! But a lot of the books star to seem a little similar after a while, but that is not something that bugs me. It is a formula that works for me. But From [...]
