DestinedRifyingly tender touch she feels almost powerless to resist and the one constant she's come to expect out of life you cannot escape what is destined This book was amazing There have been several remakes of Cupid and Psyche but this book was the most memorable for me I loved Psyche's character I think the author was able to capture her young age perfectly and thus her reactions Psyche can be a tad impetuous and even impulsive but she has many good ualities She is willing to endure lethal tasks for her love interest Cupid aka Eros Eros's character was complex as well He has been hurt before by women his mother Aphrodite chose for him He actually reacts badly to Psyche the first time he sees her indicative of the rocky relationship to come However he can be incredibly caring and sweet The secondary characters particularly Charon They each have uniue ualities the reader will remember They round out the story The events were very fast paced but the author never makes the reader feel rushed The tasks Psyche had to fulfill could almost have been slightly longer but the reader doesn't have to wade through too many details the way the author lays out the tasksThis book was impossible to put down I had to know what was going to happen to Eros and Psyche's relationship and the lengths Aphrodite would go to to meddle in their budding love This book is highly recommended to teensyoung adults

N love with the one creature even the gods fearAs she feels herself slipping closer into the arms of the prophecy Psyche must choose between the ter I don't really know where to start with this one I feel kind of bad for giving this a 1 star rating which is unusual since I tend to feel uite strongly about 1 star books It wasn't a horrible read and if I were much younger and very bored I would have given DESTINED maybe 2 or 3 stars On the other hand very few books in my life have made me lament the time I would spend reading On that note I couldn't bring myself to finish reading it I read up to the 65% mark and just had to put it down DESTINED recounts the Cupid and Psyche myth in story format The story is set in Ancient Greece and focuses around Psyche whose beauty attracts Aphrodite's attention After Psyche manages to offend Aphrodite she is cursed to fall in love with a terrible a monster However Eros pricks himself with an arrow and instead falls deeply in love with PsycheI appreciate the effort put into this book It's engaging at times and I do like the author's portrayal of the gods as one big dysfunctional family with a lot of violent prima donna complexes But the writing definitely needs work as does characterization The dialogue is peppered with modern day AMERICAN slang Descriptions of setting were strangely anachronistic Psyche mentions looking at a bookshelf in her room while her maid dresses her hair Did they even have books in Ancient Greece given that printing was not widespread until like 1500 AD Did she mean to say scroll shelf instead It took me a good forty pages to realize that the story was taking place in Ancient Greece not American suburbia Never a good start to a novel Further the protagonists were one dimensional and unlikable Psyche vacillates between being a Mary Sue to being insufferably immature Eros lacks any real depth outside of his love for Psyche But what really drove this book down to a 1 star rating was its stunning lack of originality The Cupid and Psyche myth is a story that is appealing to our modern society In fact I would say that it was probably THE YA romance of Ancient Greece We have a beautiful girl who is supposedly sacrificed to a monster But in reality the monster turns out to be the gorgeous God of Love who must deign to win the love of a mere mortal After some wooing and hardships Psyche becomes immortal and the couple live happily ever after What girl wouldn't want to be PsycheSo if there is a modern retelling I expect there to be something special or uniue about the story Unfortunately this book is a subpar rehash of the Greek myth itself told with a modern voice and sadly dumbed down to be a uasi romance between two very immature people Overall a frustrating read 1 star plus regrets that I even spent money on this book Granted it was 099 but still Meh
