Protogenesis Review

A Terrible Tragedy…
One fateful day, life for California teenager Helene Crawford comes to a grinding halt. There was a fire. Her mother is “gone”. The police say she’s dead. But something’s not right…a maze of clues lead her to believe that her mom is still alive. 
The Answers lie in Greece…
The Greek Mafia may be involved. She has a crazy godfather in Athens she never knew she had. Vivid dreams of ancient gods consume her sleep. Helene must go to Greece. The answers to her quest to find her mom lie there.
A New Life, New Love…
Suddenly uprooted to move across the world, Helene must survive a new school and navigate the highs and lows of new love.  All of this in Greece, a country embroiled in economic crisis where the kids literally speak “Greek”. 
A Portal to Another World…
Through this daring journey, Helene will pass through the gates of her past to another world where the roots of modern civilization and the gods of her favorite ancient myths converge – in order to find her mom, find herself, find true love, become empowered and transform to fulfill her destiny.
Who knows? Maybe the gods and goddesses are on her side… or maybe not. After all, nothing is as it seems.
My Review
The imagery in the writing of this story grabs the reader from the first sentence and doesn’t let go. The descriptions of the settings, and of Helene’s dreams are vivid and easy to see in your mind’s eye. The story weaves together mystery and mythology in an amazing way that made this one of the funnest books I have read in a while. The characters are deeply developed, and I was quite invested in how Helene evolved and changed throughout the book. She went from a scared kid, to an amazing heroine by the end. This story was an intriguing and fun roller coaster ride. I can’t wait to see what else this author has up her sleeves.
