Book Review - Finding Hope by Krystal Shannan


Finding Hope (Pool of Souls, #2)

Published 2013
208 Pages 

I wa
s impressed with the first book in the Pool of Souls series, and found Finding Hope to be just as enjoyable! We catch up with Ares and Aphrodite as they resume their play on human souls. And when Ares and Aphrodite play things tend to get intense! 

Ares, the formidable god of war, is a bold and fearless lover with an unabashed sexual appetite for the goddess of love, Aphrodite. The sexual chemistry between these two is nothing short of colossal, with bedroom scenes to match! But Aphrodite also has a job to do outside of the bedroom, influencing human souls, and making connections in her own uniquely powerful way. 

Addison Connelly, a veterinarian from rural Montana, is traveling to Nashville to stay with her best friend from college for a weeklong visit before her friend’s wedding. Addison has stayed away from relationships after her last breakup, and has all but given up on matters of the heart. Meanwhile, Adrian Colter, police detective and roommate to the bridegroom, has an encounter with Aphrodite. 

In her human form, enjoying the indulgences of a wine festival with Dionysus, Aphrodite knows the soul to which she has just encountered, and the significance of their meeting. Both Adrian and Addison have been lost for five lifetimes, and it might be too late. But can Aphrodite call upon the gods to stand by her? Tensions are building within her own realm, and to complicate matters Ares’s mother, Hera, has her own plans for the pool of souls... plans that may jeopardize not only the humans, but also those from beyond the great walls of Olympus.

Finding Hope is a
perfect fusion of mythology and the modern world. With complementary parallel stories, a fresh plot, and meaningful characters, this is an absorbing second installment to the Pool of Souls series. The pages are filled with passion, clever phrasing, and an ample dose of humor. It is a great story, and I look forward to the next installment!
