In my opinion, books are the best accessory.
The Eternal City by Paula Morris, publication date – May 26th, 2015 – Fantasy – I was speeding through this book because I loved visiting Italy, Rome, and imagining ancient beings manifesting and interacting with the characters in the book. Some bits of the story made me wrinkle my forehead but overall, it provides an excellent adventure packed with action and danger. Perfect fit for Percy Jackson fans who want to read a different unlikely hero.
Goodreads Summary: “From master of suspense Paula Morris comes a tale of gods and goddesses, thrilling romance, and mystery set in present-day Rome. Laura Martin is visiting Rome on a class trip, and she’s entranced by the majestic Colosseum, the Trevi Fountain, the Pantheon. . . . Everything in this city seems magical. That is, until the magic seems to turn very dark. Suddenly, statues of Cupid and ancient works of art come to life before her eyes. Earthquakes rumble and a cloud of ash forms in the sky. A dark-eyed boy with wings on his heels appears and gives her a message. Laura soon realizes she is at the center of a brewing battle — a battle between the gods and goddesses, one that will shake modern-day Rome to its core. Only she and her group of friends can truly unravel the mystery behind what is happening. As tensions mount and secret identities are revealed, Laura must rely on her own inner strength to face up to what may be a fight for her life.”
