Sacrifice by N. Isabelle Blanco is the third standalone in a dark, Adult Fairytale Collection!

We all know the story.
How it ended.
He survived and conquered each task.
Became the hero of all heroes.
And in the end he became a legend.
What no one told you is that I was there. I was helping him . . . and when he ascended, I was left behind to rot.
Herakles never knew I sold my soul for his success—he didn’t need to. Had I been enough on my own, he would’ve chosen to stay.
Instead, he rose to full glory.
I was dragged straight to Hades.
I lost track of him for nearly three millennia, but I’ve found him.
I will kill him.
He chose to become a god; I was forced to become a nightmare.
Now it’s time for us to meet again.
I abandoned my family mere moments before the Greek pantheon fell.
‘Till this day the whispers accuse me.
Had I been there, perhaps they could’ve been saved.
But I no longer gave a fuck.
Funny how vanity can blind a male to what really matters.
It took less than a year on Olympus before I began searching for her again.
I never found her.
Now, two-in-a-half-thousand years later, here I am.
An immortal ghost, simply getting by.
I should’ve never left her.
The only thing I had was hoping the last of her mortal days, wherever she ended up, were happy . . .
Joke’s on me.
A darkened, twisted version of my female returns, demanding my head for every one of my sins.
And she shall have it.
But first, I’m saving her from her curse.
I’ll sacrifice every ounce of my sanity left to free her . . . right before I let her end me once and for all.”
If you are a fan of Greek Mythology or Hercules specifically, you should really check out this dark, twisted romance!
I think since I don’t know too much about this legend, I can’t fully appreciate the backstory and plot in this book, but I will say that it was still an enjoyable read that had me spinning from start to finish.
It’s definitely not a light read, so if you aren’t a fan of the intense, passionate, teeth-clenching romance genre, I wouldn’t pick this one up. But if you love diving into these types of vengeful stories, you will fall for it instantly.
I ended up giving this one 3 out of 5 Stars. Like I said, I only gave it a lower rating since I wasn’t able to fully appreciate what was going on. The romance was great, but the story itself lacked a bit of information that I felt like a third-wheel to.

How I Read It: eARC from Enticing Journey
*Disclaimer: I requested a free copy of this book from Enticing Journey in exchange for an honest review. All of my reviews contain my honest opinions only and are not influenced I any way.*
“N. Isabelle Blanco is the Amazon Bestselling Author of the Allure Series, the Need Series with K.I.Lynn, and many others. At the age of three, due to an odd fascination with studying her mother’s handwriting, she began to read and write. By the time she’d reached kindergarten, she had an extensive vocabulary and her obsession with words began to bleed into every aspect of her life.
That is, until coffee came a long and took over everything else.
Nowadays, N. spends most of her days surviving the crazy New York rush and arguing with her characters every ten minutes or so, all in the hopes of one day getting them under control.”
