About the Book:
With her unusual violet hazel eyes hidden behind heavy glasses, American teenager Helene Crawford is the kind of student that always has an answer; yet, she doesn’t seem to fit in anywhere.

One fateful day, life as she knows it comes to a grinding halt. There was a fire. Her mother is gone. But something is not right... The Greek Mafia may be involved. Vivid dreams of ancient deities consume her sleep. A maze of clues leads her to believe that her mother is still alive... She must go to Greece.

The answers to her perilous quest lie there, as Helene braves into the unknown of a new life, torn between two Greek guys and a new world that literally awaits her.

And who knows, maybe the Greek gods and goddesses are on her side... or maybe not.

After all, nothing is as it seems.

Noteworthy experiences while reading this book: Pretty cover but the synopsis pretty much tells you everything about the book which leaves nothing for you to read.

Notes and Opinions:  When I saw this book for review I was hoping it was going to be a great new fantasy to read.  But what I found was a book that needed a lot of help.  I never read the first copy of this book but this one still needs some help.  The description pretty much tells you everything that happens in the book so you almost don't even need to read it at all.  The character's relationships in this one were very very bad and pretty cringe worthy.  The love triangle (yes there is one!) was very predictable which made the book lose some of what it had going for it.  The story left me very confused, I didn't care for the main character and everyone else was pretty one dimensional.  This is one book that needs some help and I hope that it gets another try. 

Go Into This One Knowing: Love Triangle, One Dimensional Characters, Messy Plot/Story
