Meridi Myers; Titus and Atreus

  • Paperback: 336 pages
  • Publisher: Hero Publishing; 1ST edition (2009)


Two worlds,

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.

My Review

  Titus and Atreus was a unique read. I have yet to read anything remotely like this. Refreshing!  Having two worlds Typhon and Earth with everyone having a soul twin. I really enjoyed Juno's character the best. I can't put my finger on it exactly. This moved extremely fast with plenty of action. As I was saying about the uniqueness is having a twin soul in another world and having everything that happens to you happens to your soul was a great concept. Once Titus was brought to the world of Typhon to meet his "twin" he realizes things are not what they were. I did think the descriptions on a few thing were a little over done. Other then that a smooth sailing book. By the way the ending was awesome. One you don't want to miss!
    I normally wouldn't have picked this up but I am glad Meridi Myer sent it to me. As sad as I am to say I do judge the book by the cover. That's why I read reviews.
You should also check out the site...It's pretty RadTitus and Atreus

 Please note that my review is my opinion alone and under NO influence.

Thanks for sharing your review of this book! I had never heard of it & probably would not have picked it up based on the cover alone, but after reading your review I plan to look for it. :)

I always enjoy reading your reviews & want to send a "Beautiful Blogger Award" your way.

Cool review. I'm not sure why, but Titus and Atreus reminds me of an "X-Files" episode.

I also judge books by their covers and never would have picked this one up! (NOT that the cover is bad, it just doesn't look like the kind of book I usually go for.) But now I would read it, what an intriguing plot!!

It sounds fun. I like books with action with it. I read a review for this book on another blog and that one was positive too, I want to read it!
