T working The tests the drugs the therapies were all useless and a waste of time She was tired of wasting her time; she was tired of failure It was time to look away from the obvious and try something unconventional Nothing was ever free and that included miracles Abruptly Ari finds herself tangled in a web of lies uestioning everything she’s ever know. Tter series I have to say this book is my favorite kind of ead If you love stories with twists and suspense action humor and omance then Of Gaea is a must ead I can t wait for the second book in the series MelI eceived this book in exchange for an honest eview I won this book off of Goodreads First Read Giveaway Thank you to Goodreads and the author Victoria EscobarOf Gaea is a wonderful book about a young woman Ari whose life is turned upside After an accident that left her crippled she seeks a way to be able to walk again This leads her on a path of finding out who she eally is and where she comes from Her life and the people she loved are not all what they appear to beI haven t ead much on Greek mythology but I didn t have any trouble following along when something popped up in the book Things are explained throughout the book The story is written in third person and mostly follows Ari the main character Ari is a likeable character that has strengths and weaknesses physical and other that makes her ealistic and elatable The eader is strapped on for an adventure as Ari discovers the truth about her family and what is coming
