REVIEW ➼ Awful Intentions by Elena Monroe


I didn’t know I was so set on truths until I realized my whole life was a lie.
Being banished to Arcadia Prep.
The myths we thought were just empty threats meant to iron out bad behavior.
All of it was a neatly packaged lie.
Hell raged in the pit of my stomach and now we were free to wreak havoc on humanity.

The truth was simple: I was a good girl meant to heal the wounded and help uphold the truth.
I’m the one who tore the truth down.
I stomped on it and set it on fire.
I did everything that didn’t add up to the me I cultivated.
I was a perfectly packaged lie.


I didn’t’ think it would be possible to top Awful Curse, but boy does this one do it. I loved the bits and pieces of Nyx and Luna in the first book, so I was super excited to get more of them. I love the mix of mythology in this story and the modern take on it.

It’s hard not to love Nyx, especially if the alpha bad boy is your type. However, there is more much more to him. Luna, I love her. She is strong woman, despite being frustrating at times. The two of them together is truly beautiful and their chemistry is off the charts. These two are so perfect for each other.

This story is beautifully written, full of twists and turns. It’s one where you sit down to start it and you will not move until you reach the final word. It completely sucks you in and captivates you. Seriously, whether you’re a fan of mythology/fantasy or not this is one book and series that I’d highly recommend.
