About the Book



Not all heroes wear capes . . . In fact, some prefer cat hair-covered leggings and a lab coat. Meet Ryan Bell, the painfully single twenty-eight-year-old botanist credited with creating miraculous air-purifying flowers capable of saving mankind from itself. There's only one problem: Only Ryan can grow them.



Book Synopsis



With her smart and playful writing, debut author Metra Farrari cleverly blends chick-lit with a dash of Greek mythology--the product a winning combination of smart-alecky wit, dreamy escapism, and a quirky yet lovable heroine.

Ryan Bell is your typical millennial: surviving on a diet of wine and Netflix, woefully single enough to qualify for cat-lady membership, and renting from a seventy-something Tinder-swiping landlord-turned-bestie. But underneath her chipped-off manicure lies a green thumb that has created miraculous flowers capable of saving mankind from cataclysmic climate change. There's one problem: Only Ryan can grow them.

An unusual audience comes to an unorthodox conclusion: Ryan is the heir of the Greek god Artemis.

Although Ryan thinks these strange, toga-wearing folks are one kalamata olive short of a Greek salad, she reluctantly enters a hidden world where the Olympians are real and magic flows freely (plus a generous serving of Greek hunks). Talk about one epic identity crisis. Magical demigod or not, the fate of civilization--both mortal and godly--now rests on Ryan's shoulders.

A fresh, creative take on a classic adventure tale

5 out of 5 stars
C Monzingo - 1 year ago
Farrari’s intricately plotted and imaginative adventure tale transports Ryan, an engaging young botanist, from her Minnesota research station to the outskirts of Mount Olympus, where descendants of Greek gods challenge her powers. The gifted Ryan has created a species of flower, Weeping Diana, that removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere of a toxic planet Earth. The problem is that the plant’s life-saving power blooms only when Ryan herself plants it. She strives to grow more and more flowers but is unable to meet a desperate world’s demand. Ryan’s heroic labors are interrupted by an eccentric summons from a mysterious group that claims to have succeeded in growing Weeping Diana on a remote Greek island. Farrari deftly foreshadows the singular nature of the island’s inhabitants during Ryan’s journey by sea from the Greek mainland. Look for the clues about the islanders; it’s a fun treasure hunt. Caught up in series of exciting challenges after she arrives, Ryan struggles to come into her own in a beautifully imagined world that is familiar enough to be relatable but different enough to delight us with fresh characters, imagery, and plotting. All the Blues reminds me of a funny, hip, sunnier The Hunger Games—a young adult series whose adaptation to film will appeal to audiences of all ages. Don’t miss this vibrant novel full of twists, turns, and humor about growing up and making the world a better place.

Such a fun and creative book that I didn't want to put down! I love the way the author weaves together a dystopian (or not far off reality) of climate change and air quality concerns with the story of a comical, relatable, down to earth protagonist and her fanciful journey through a mythical world. Can't wait for book 2 and beyond!

I liked the combination of Greek mythology, advocacy for climate change, and female autonomy. This story touched many topics and emotions that resonated well with me. On top of that, I was able to meet the author and she has such a beautiful soul. I highly recommend reading this book. It is light hearted and thoughtful. I’m sincerely looking forward to reading the rest of the trilogy.

I stayed up way too late this weekend starting and finishing this book. It was such a satisfying read that checked all the boxes: comedy, romance, adventure and magic. I became so invested in the main character, I can't wait to see where her journey goes in book two. I hope this book finds its way to Netflix or HBO.

As a mother, my time is precious, but no regrets here as I spent every minute of “me time” nose deep In this book! It’s a page turner and I couldn’t keep it down. Even when I wasn’t reading, I would be thinking about the book- what Ryan’s next move would be, how her love triangle pans out, the hilarious and relatable one liners that I would relive in my head :D It was the perfect summer book that got me excited about reading again. I can’t wait for book #2!

I crushed this book, it was a great read! I found the main protagonist very relatable- a STEM gal with a goofy sense of humor trying to solve the world’s climate crisis. Add in some Greek demigods, a mythological island, and a high stakes adventure, what’s more to love? The story was creative, funny, fresh, and dusted off parts of my imagination that I haven’t used in a while. The ending was a surprise twist for sure, and left me wanting book #2 ASAP!

This was such an entertaining read! The book takes you on an amazing mythical journey you feel like you are right there with the characters and can easily imagine all the sights, sounds, smells and tastes. Makes me want to be a botanist, or at the very least visit a greenhouse soon!

Well I whipped through this book in a couple days and have already passed it on to a friend! Needless to say I loved it! The story itself felt fresh and original, with an surprise ending that left me anxious for book #2! I appreciated the quirky characters (I need a Greta in my life!) and hilarity throughout the book—makes for a great summer read at the lake! I thought Farrari’s world-building was fantastic—the imagery she sets up throughout the book left me feeling so immersed in the story and connected to the characters. Overall a very enjoyable read that held my interest and kept me turning the pages…all while allowing me to escape into a world of hilarious characters and beautiful Greek Gods!

This was a quick read that was super entertaining, funny and quirky. I wasn’t weighed down by the mythology or fantasy aspect...the author kept the dialogue fresh with lots of pop culture references. I can’t wait for the sequel!
