Immortal Ties by Jennifer Malone Wright
Some bonds reach beyond the realms.
Molly McMillan has lived in Saint’s Grove her entire life and aside from the normal gossip and disputes that make up life in a small town, nothing exciting ever happened.
Until one day, a cosmic event occurs and not only is Saint’s Grove suddenly overrun with beings only heard of in stories, Molly is attacked by one of the same creatures that have haunted her nightmares for years. Luckily, evil creatures aren’t the only beings that appeared in Saint’s Grove that night.
Aero doesn’t know why he’s been pulled out of his realm, but the moment his feet planted on the ground in Saint’s Grove, he found himself surrounded by chaos and creatures that shouldn’t be roaming Earth. Nearby, he hears the fearful screams of a woman, and hurries to the rescue.
Little did he know that by saving her, his life will be changed forever.

Jennifer Malone Wright has always been one of my favorite authors. She is on my list of authors that I will automatically buy her books as soon as they are released. When she asked me if I would review her new book, Immortal Ties, I fangirled for bit. Of course, I said yes. I loved Immortal Ties. It reminded me of all the reasons why she is an automatic one-click author.
I have always been obsessed with Greek Mythology. Jennifer Malone Wright perfectly blends mythology with suspense, romance, and intrigue to create a story line that had me captivated from beginning to end. It was absolutely perfect. I kept flipping pages, dying to know what happens next. I finished the book in one sitting, in a total of about two hours. I just needed to know how Molly was going to overcome everything that happened to her.
I loved all of the characters. The author wrote all of the characters in a way that made them relatable to the reader, even with the fantasy setting. I was able to picture myself as Molly while she was going through her situation. I also loved everything about Aero. He was the perfect book boyfriend. He was caring, and attentive to Molly. His parents cracked me up. I do wish that there would have been a little bit more of them in the story, especially Psyche.
I loved Immortal Ties. By the time I finished it, I was twitching to read the next book in the series, and learn more about the other citizens of Saint's Grove. I can't wait to see if the Greek Mythology plays into anyone else's story. I'm hoping that Jennifer Malone Wright will write a prequel at some point about Psyche's journey that led her to the Underworld. I recommend Immortal Ties to anyone wanting a new spin on Greek mythology.
I give Immortal Ties: 5/5.
