This is one of the best books I have read in a very long time (and I'm not just saying that because I am Greek, although it didn't hurt that I had ties to the story). If you love mythology mixed with YA Urban Fantasy then this is a great read for you! With a strong female heroine, a sexy love interest, and a fight to survive, "Lore" definitely kept the pages turning late into the night!
I am such a huge fan of historical pieces, especially about people who live in communities like the Vikings did. They're so ancient, they have so many legends that they're almost myths themselves now. I was weary about this one only because I have a love/hate relationship with YA novels. I love how they're written usually and the stories they tell, but I am not a fan at all of when they make the female character smitten, lovestruck, and hopeless for a guy, obsessive really. It's such a huge book turnoff for me. There was a little of that in Fable by this author but then Namesake (the second book in that series) was better about it. When I read this was her first debut novel I had no idea which way it would go.
