Book Brief: My Ex from Hell

My Ex From HellMy Ex From Hell (The Blooming Goddess Trilogy Book One)
by Tellulah Darling
Genre: YA romantic comedy/Greek mythology
Word count: 63,000

My Ex From Hell is a YA romantic comedy/Greek mythology smackdown. Love meets comedy with a whole lot of sass in book one of this teen fantasy romance series. Compared to Kai and Sophie, Romeo and Juliet had it easy.

Prior to the Halloween dance, Sophie figures her worst problems involve adolescent theatrics, bitchy teen yoga girls, and being on probation at her boarding school for mouthy behaviour. Then a kiss from bad boy Kai awakens Sophie’s true identity: Persephone, Goddess of Spring.

She’s key to saving humanity in the war between the Underworld and Olympus, target numero uno of Hades and Zeus, and totally screwed. Sophie’s last memory as Persephone was just before someone tried to murder her.

Big picture: master her powers, get her memories back, defeat Persephone’s would be assassin, and save the world. Also, sneak into the Underworld to retrieve stolen property, battle the minions of Hades and Zeus, outwit psycho nymphs, slay a dragon, rescue a classmate, keep from getting her butt expelled from the one place designed to keep her safe …

… and stop kissing Kai, Prince of the Underworld.

This book is available from Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Continue reading “Book Brief: My Ex from Hell”

I looked at the stupid little bird made out of some sort of vegetable I’d never eat under any circumstances nestled among other food I didn’t want.

In fact, considering the spread was for my birthday party, there was nothing here I wanted. It was classic Margo. “It’s a goofy-looking little bird. What’s elegant about that?” I grumbled at her.

“It’s whimsical,” she smiled at me, oblivious to my disappointment, as always.

I shrugged in resignation. There was just no winning this kind of discussion with Margo. There would be guests I didn’t want, standing around making small-talk I wasn’t interested in.

At least, I thought that’s how it was going to be. As it turns out, I underestimated Margo.
