Friday Freebie Review - Miss Underworld by Racquel Kechagias

Miss Underworld
The Deity’s Secrets series book#1
by Racquel Kechagias

Goodreads blurb:  Melinoe had been abandon at birth, for what reason she has never known, but she knows this, she isn't like everybody else. Her eyes are a mismatched colour, one of pure black, the other filmed white. She can see ghosts, and at times she is able to help them crossover, she destroys everything in her path as well as any relationship she has ever been in. Melinoe is sick of her depressing life, until one day she meets Morpheus, and when she learns that he has a secret of his own, she'll do just about anything to find out what it is.

My Thoughts - 3 out of 5 unicorns - I liked it!!

**received from author in return for an honest review

I liked this story.  It was a new twist for me combining mythology and vampires together.  I like both covers, but the Goodreads cover I like best because of the eyes.  Not sure why eyes seem to attract me, but they do.  I didn't like the prologue because it didn't fit together with the book in my opinion.  Melinoe is interesting, and I’m not sure if the inconsistent personality was because of all the changes in her life or what.  This is the first book in this series and a new author, so I think part of awkwardness is just trying to build the world in this story. 

I’m not with the grammar police.  I noticed some errors here and there, but it does not interfere with the reader’s enjoyment of the story.  I only mention this because it does bother some people more than others.

I think this series has great possibilities for the future :) and mythology and vampire lovers will enjoy reading this story.

**Currently Free on Amazon, but not sure how long it will last
