CHILDREN of the GODS
This book is for anyone who loves:
Young Adult love stories
Books with a dystopian twist
No one promised freedom would be peaceful...
Lead Council member, Christoph, is dead by Elyse’s hand, and Descendants have begun to emerge, exposing their secret to the world. Some see this as the prophecy come to fruition, but the prophecy caries a heavy consequence. It was never meant to be as peaceful as most had hoped.
Humans and Descendants struggle to live together in a world that isn’t ready for such a change. America is divided. Those who glorify the supernatural race believe Descendants truly are the gods they claim relation to. Others see them as a threat.
When Elyse gives birth to the next generation oracle, she sees one final vision—war. The destruction of the country’s major cities, and the end of America as we know it.
After her daughter is born, Elyse finds herself without the ability she needs to predict the future. Desperate to save the world from such conflict, she puts her faith in the hope that Descendants are the key to survival. After all, they have the power to supply a broken society with the means to survive.
Only from the ashes can a new world be born.
The Children of the Gods is based on the idea that the Greek gods were never really gods at all, but a secret race that has been living among us for centuries. Fans of Shatter Me, Percy Jackson, Divergent, and Harry Potter will love this series.

I have read a lot of series where I love the first book, but after that, the series doesn't hold my attention. The Children of the Gods series is absolutely the exact opposite of that. I've loved following Elyse and her friends as they'e grown and fought, loved and lost. This last book brought the series to a wonderful close! ★★★★★ - Author, Meradeth Houston
This series holds such a special place in my heart. As sad as I am to see it end, this final installment was well worth it. All three books in the Children of the Gods series are complete page turners. Jessica is excellent at balancing comedy, action, drama, and romance perfectly. ★★★★★ - Nina

Le chef du conseil, Christoph, a été tué par Elyse, et les Descendants ont commencé à se manifester, révélant leur secret au monde entier. Certains y voient l’accomplissement de la prophétie, mais celle-ci entraîne de lourdes conséquences. Elle n’a jamais été supposée se réaliser de façon aussi pacifique comme la plupart l’avaient espérée.
Les humains et les Descendants ont du mal à cohabiter dans un monde qui n’était pas prêt pour un tel changement. Les États-Unis sont divisés. Ceux qui soutiennent la race surnaturelle croient que les Descendants sont réellement les dieux qu'ils se prétendent être. Les autres les considèrent comme une menace.
Lorsqu’Elyse donne naissance à l’oracle de la nouvelle génération, elle reçoit une dernière vision — la guerre. La destruction des grandes cités du pays, et la fin des États-Unis tels que nous les connaissons.
Après la naissance de sa fille, Elyse perd le moyen de prédire l’avenir. Voulant à tout prix sauver le monde d’un tel conflit, elle nourrit l’espoir que les Descendants seront la clé de la survie. Après tout, ils ont le pouvoir de fournir les ressources pour subsister à une société brisée.
