Mortal rock star Orpheus steals the spotlight in this Goddess Girls tale of love and lyres!

Orpheus is a mortal rock god, and the girls at Mount Olympus Academy are wild about him! With his lyre and singing voice, Orpheus can charm pretty much anything—even things like stones and trees. But Hades and the other MOA boys aren’t charmed. In fact, they are less than thrilled that the girls are so gaga over this guy.

His fans are especially excited about his latest song about the girl he loved and lost, Eurydice. Orpheus was devastated when he lost Eurydice to the Underworld, so he asks Persephone to help get her back. Though it means breaking some very serious Underworld rules, Persephone pushes Hades to return Eurydice to the living world. But restoring Orpheus’s one true love might jeopardize Persephone’s own chances with her biggest crush...

    The new mortal boy Orpheus has swept the entire girl population in Mount Olympus Academy off their feet! With a clear, lovely voice and beautiful lyre-playing skills, Orpheus looks and sounds the part of a heartbreaker popstar. He's one of the top rising musicians on Olympus, but after a freak accident, his girlfriend Eurydice is suddenly taken into the Underworld. Heartbroken, Orpheus loses all motivation. He knows that once you go into the Underworld, you never come out. Persephone's dating Hades, and, seeing Orpheus so dismal, she tries to help Orpheus lead Eurydice out of the Underworld. But can helping another romantic relationship break her own? Fast-paced and fun, this is one of my favorite Goddess Girls books in the series!

          Ok I just got this book yesterday and so far so good, the reason that I got it was because it is the newest one in the series. I'm only on chapter 4 so I can't really tell you much. So that is my book review hope you like the book.
