I love mythology, I love it so much I took every college course I can on the subject. My guidance counselor was like if it was possible this would almost be your minor. 🙂 So when I saw this YA book that was about Cupid’s son I knew this book would be cute. It was a really sweet story about love, fixing wrongs and figuring out what is right even when you’ve been always told the opposite of what your feeling. Aaryn is the son of Cupid and when he was down on earth to complete his final things didn’t go as planned. Instead Karma his target was hit with the arrow of love, no matter how bad Danny treats her she just can’t seem to break that spell. To right Aaryn’s wrong his dad sends him down to earth and he has to fix it. But now he is a human and human emotions are coming into play. I know at times Karma drove me crazy with never giving up on Danny but sometimes it’s not that easy to give up on the one you love with all your heart. Arrows was a great little YA book and while it does deal with adult situations and teen pregnancy / first time teen parents. I think the author did a great job at not making all fun and games. Can Karma find love? Can she continue with her dance dreams? Can Aaryn make the council realize that love isn’t just an easy hit with cupids arrows? I think teen’s that enjoy romance books or mythology will enjoy Arrows.
summary: Dance prodigy Karma Clark’s unrequited love for Danny is unbearable until Aaryn, son of Cupid, tries to fix his mistake and ends up falling in love with the beautiful dancer from Wisconsin who can never love him in return.
