Icarus has spent years being trapped in Hell as punishment when he’s finally given the chance at parole. He’s given the opportunity to return to the human world to live as a man but he will keep his wings as punishment during his time on Earth although they will be hidden.
Upon his return Icarus meets Eve Gregory who offers him a room to rent where the two form a relationship. Eve soon finds herself discovering Icarus’s secrets and becoming involved with him requires her to help complete a quest for Zeus.
I was a bit back and forth on Icarus Rising. The story is one that I tend to enjoy with making up a fictional tale based on mythology and characters we’ve all heard about before when it comes to the Gods and the legends surrounding them. But this one also seemed a bit rushed through when you consider how quickly Icarus and Eve became involved and set out on their quest. Found it a bit hard to really become fully invested in the characters and story with it being a shorter read with so much going on.
Overall, even with a few hesitations with this one it was still an enjoyable read based on mythology with the Greek gods and goddesses.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
