Two boys . . .
. . . One prophecy.
Grief-stricken by the loss of his parents, Titus Attwater is convinced his life will never improve. His older sister ignores his calls, his grades in school have plummeted, and his house, once a place of warmth and security, is now lonely, cold, and alien.
But when a young man appears one night in Titus's house, claiming he came in upstairs through the full-length mirror, Titus's life gets turned upside-down. For, as Titus soon discovers, this intruder is not from Earth. Against his will, Titus is kidnapped and taken to another world, a place like Earth but markedly different. It is here where he will befriend angels, face assassins, and help a young prince unravel a prophecy that proves much darker and more twisted than any of them had imagined.
When I first picked up Titus and Atreus, I did not know what to expect. As I started to read it, I was pleasantly surprised to discover how much I was enjoying the story! The plot was completely original and unique. I have never read anything like it. I absolutely loved the idea of having a twin soul on another world. In fact when I was younger, I used to think that there was another version of me living on another planet somewhere who looked exactly like me, but had a different lifestyle.
Titus' reactions were funny! I found myself laughing many times at the way he reacted to new things. I also liked how Meridi used the word "creepers" on page 27 of her book. (I'm probably the only one who appreciates this because I use the word "creepers" all the time...probably more than I should).
The ending was left me wanting more. I want to know what will happen next, especially where Titus is concerned. I imagine it must be difficult for him to be away from the world he always knew.
Overall, I found Titus and Atreus to be extremely enjoyable. I loved the plot, characters, pace, and everything about it. The last battle scene was amazing! I had my eyes glued to the pages as I read. I needed to know how it would all play out. Needless to say, this book was fast-paced and hard to put down! Definitely a fun read.
