My Review:
This second book was pretty close to as good as the first book.  In book one you really felt the connection between Hades and Elizabeth, and you got to seeing him as a character that you had sympathy for and could definitely begin to like. By the end of this story, after all that happened, I felt even more sympathy for him, and really began to think of him as a favorite. Even with his attitude and ease toward killing, you feel it is all understandable.  And then there is Apollo/Tyler and Artemis/Shannon.  In their quest to find who was behind Project Pandora and make them responsible for what was done as well as exposing them to the public, they end up in more trouble.  Tyler's injury leads to more details of their past, things they didn't remember.  Things that bring even more trouble into their lives.  We find out who Hades' real parent was, and when he learns things that he didn't know about Persephone/Elizabeth, he is set off and his need for revenge overcomes any hopes he ever even entertained for being a normal human some day.

There are more adults in this story. Dr. Miller is one of the first ones, and she has connections that take the story into the current title, Project Prometheus.  So many new people to meet in this story, and so many that we have to wonder whether they are on "our" side, that of our Academy escapees, or if they are going to be there to bring them back into the fold, or maybe back into even worse scenarios.  This was another easy, page-turning read, like the first book. And definitely we have left it open for a third book, which I will be eager to read and find out just where all of this will lead, and how will Hades fare in his quest for revenge.  Another book I'll be adding to my school library for my students to read and enjoy.

Book 1:

Project Pandora (Assassin Fall #1) by Aden Polydoros

Release Date: August 1st 2017


Tyler Bennett trusts no one. Just another foster kid bounced from home to home, he’s learned that lesson the hard way. Cue world’s tiniest violin. But when strange things start happening—waking up with bloody knuckles and no memory of the night before or the burner phone he can’t let out of his sight— Tyler starts to wonder if he can even trust himself.

Even stranger, the girl he’s falling for has a burner phone just like his. Finding out what’s really happening only leads to more questions…questions that could get them both killed. It’s not like someone’s kidnapping teens lost in the system and brainwashing them to be assassins or anything, right? And what happens to rogue assets who defy control?

In a race against the clock, they’ll have to uncover the truth behind Project Pandora and take it down—before they’re reactivated. Good thing the program spent millions training them to kick ass...
