Review of Lykaia by Sharon Van Ormen

Lykaia
Sharon Van Ormen
 
Sophia is a medical examiner who is deeply rooted 
in science and fact. When her two brothers temporarily
 move to Greece to explore their roots, they become
 fascinated by folklore and tales of werewolves, kings,
 and priests. Shortly after their move, Sophia and her 
mother stop receiving calls and emails from them. When
 three months pass without any word from either, she
 hops aboard a plane to Greece in search of them. While
 going through their apartment looking for clues, she
 discovers one brother's extensive collection of notes
 and research on the werewolf folklore. Although she
 believes the tales to be completely absurd, having 
nothing else to go on she follows her brother's research
 hoping it will lead her to them. Along the way she 
uncovers truths she does not want to see nor believe,
 truths that completely contradict laws of nature, and 
eventually she must accept these truths in order to survive.
 
This book was very exciting, and had a great historical
 aspect to it. I couldn't stop reading. The detail the
 author got into when describing the history of the
 folklore and in detailing ceremonial rights was excellent.
 My only complaint would have to be that the book jumped
 around a bit, following different characters over the 
course of thousands of years, and was occasionally hard 
to keep track of where you were at and at what point in
 history. In the end, all I can say is, IS THERE GOING
 TO BE A SEQUEL???
