    1. 1 starToo many issues!When Olympic messenger, Ophelia Lind, spurns the advances of demigod Aden she provokes his hunting instinct. Not only is Ophelia being pursued by Aphrodite’s precious son, a creature is trying to kill her. The changes in her laid-back routine lead to Ophelia questioning her parentage, avoiding death, and doubting the Aden’s affection.Harbinger seemed like it was heading in an interesting direction. The set-up seemed unique: modernized Olympic gods, Australian setting, a [...]

    2. Ok so I tried this book, and since this is wayyy out of my realm of what I would normally read I am not sure my review is worth reading. So first off, I am so confused by what God is who and what they do and who their parents are I needed a cheat sheet. (Again I don't usually read books about Gods and Goddesses) After I had that all sorted out, this book just kept me feeling lost. I never got a connection with any of the characters, so it was difficult to relate to them. I feel like the author w [...]

    3. This book had a lot of potential, but it fell short. I liked how it incroporated the greek mythology with the rest of the gods from other mythologies like the nordic. Crake really captured the cold hard attitude of a woman scorned way too many times of Hera, and the true egotistical bitchiness that was Aphrodite. Honestly if it weren't cause they were such awful gods I would have given up on the book. As it was, it was a battle just to finish it. They never really mentioned the MCs age and from [...]

    4. 3.5stars Harbinger is a fun fast passed paranormal romance. I thoroughly enjoyed the ride. "I despised most gods and suspected the feeling was mutual. But I didn’t have to like them; I just had to work for them. As long as they left me alone in my godless city, life was good."This first three sentences tell so much about the MC, Phi and make clear its all about mythology. If that's not your cup of tea, i suggest you put the book down. Because Crake packed the novel with mythology, and not just [...]

    5. Not only is Peta an Australian author, but her novel is amazing. The story unfolds and brings some unexpected turns along the way. The easy flow of the story makes reading it so pleasurable and when I wasn't reading I was wondering what was going to happen to Phi next.Ophelia (Phi) is a messenger for the Gods. Her mother passed away 10 years ago and left her heartbroken and alone. Her father is a God and as such she was given a job to hand deliver messages between them. A messenger is not meant [...]

    6. Botw pick for 12/7/2012. It was good. Could've been better. It fell short in some areas. It really read like YA, but I've been told it's not. It had some intimate situations that were sadly faded out.

    7. A dash of chick lit with a lovely re-working of the old gods and mythologies. Harbinger is wonderfully imaginative and promises a fantastic new paranormal romance series.

    8. The publishers call this a romance, but really it’s an urban fantasy. The book cover, designed to fit with Penguin’s Destiny Romance series, makes it look like a contemporary romance, not the hard hitting example of urban fantasy that it is. The cover and the romance label are misleading. It’s not that there isn’t romance, there is, but like any urban fantasy there is much more to the story than the relationship between two people.Harbinger is a gritty tale about a girl who works as a me [...]

    9. Read my reviews at Book Junkie JointMore than just a love story! It's a wild roller-coaster ride spanning worlds and dimensions!Being a messenger to the gods is simple enough. Being a messenger to the gods with Hermes as an admirer, Aphrodite's son as a suitor, Zeus as an Uncle, and a couple of all-powerful beings either wanting you dead or playing as your friends, on the other hand, is definitely a little bit too much for a girl.The beginning of Harbinger is a little bit deceptive because it ma [...]

    10. Harbinger is Peta Crake's début novel out from Penguin Australia's Destiny Romance imprint in August. A copy of the book was provided to me by the publisher through Netgalley.Ophelia is a modern Perth girl with a job that sends her travelling a lot: she's one of the messengers of the gods. All the gods of all the pantheons. Mostly, the gods don't trust technology (ever since Loki hacked the internet and bugged their phones), so they communicate through hand delivered messages. Never mind that O [...]

    11. Original review post to chicklitworthreadingI hate running errands. Really, I do. I hate having to leave the comfort of my home, with my tub full of Baskin Robbins and my ridiculously large television set. Just to travel to the dreaded Post office, or crowded grocery store, or some other place that insists on taking my money against my will. So the idea of running errands for a living makes me want to lay down and sleep for a very, very long time. But that is exactly what our heroine does every [...]

    12. I was always a big fan of mythology growing up, so when this book came up in my reading group, I jumped in thinking it would be fun. Harbinger was a decent read that definitely had potential to be something more but fell a little short in my opinion. I loved the way the gods were humanized and came to life, especially Zeus, Hera, Hades and even Aphrodite. But I really wish that the other characters were developed a bit further, and that Ophelia was a more worthy heroine. Ophelia did have her mom [...]

    13. Wow, this book was such fun to read (despite some of the heavier scenes). Very well written and great take on Greek and other mythologies. A lot going on, which I liked as it kept me intrigued and questioning with our heroine. Phi is a no-nonsense character who has what appears on the surface to be a normal job - a messenger. But she's a messenger for the gods and that ups the ante. LOVED her interaction with Cerberus. It's exactly what would have liked a character to do and finally someone has [...]

    14. I liked it! :) thedailyprophecy/2While this is definitely not the best book I’ve ever read, the low rating on surprised me! The first two reviews are 1-star ratings.This book is a quick paced story that is set in Australia. Ophelia – also called Phi – is an Olympic messenger. Her mother passed away a few years ago and her father is supposed to be Hermes. She has quite a family. Not everybody has Hades and Zeus as uncles. Her life is turned upside down when she meets demigod Aden, son of A [...]

    15. UPDATE: (12.07.2012) Starting it today. Gah! I haven't done my guest post yet. It's sitting there at the Drafts I've been reading and trolling at other sites that's why it's still in Drafts. :( I am so sorry, Katy, I have been bumming around. :p FINALLY!!!! Such a slow-paced book. Like how I read. lol. Review later. Okay First of all, I really love Mythologies. Although I read Greeks and Roman Mythologies only. Second, I love the cover. ;) So when Harbinger was recommended to me, I really though [...]

    16. I picked up this book because it was cheap and I like books that involve gods consorting with mortalsAnd I have to say I really enjoyed this story. However it lost stars due to Phi being too forgiving. Seriously, after what she had to go through I want some grovelling and some blood And it also lost a star due to some things and relationships that either needed to be fleshed out more or dumped completely.I also need to read some more in depth conversations between h & H (and also with other [...]

    17. A rather enjoyable story but wow - what a lot there is going on, too much in fact. This book could really do with some refining and more direction, it's a bit all over the place, jumping from one scenario to the next. The writing flowed well and was easy to read but I was often left feeling dazed and muddled trying to figure out where the story was going, because it just didn't (go anywhere).An interesting cast of characters with a mix of paranormals and Gods, but again, there was too much of al [...]

    18. I particularly enjoyed the start of this story, meeting Ophelia the messenger who carries scrolls to and from the various Gods. I laughed out loud at some of the descriptions of these Gods, particularly Pandora who has a phobia about opening things :)It's a nice twist on the Greek myths.It lost me just a little working through the second half. Whether that section drew out slightly too long, or possibly I ended up a bit confused about what Ophelia's main goal was in her life. (She has a lot of g [...]

    19. I really enjoyed this book. It's nice and easy to read, and I found the concept of the gods living among us mere mortals on Earth quite interesting, and wanted to know more about each of them. This book has a bit a everything - action, adventure, intrigue, romance, and great world-building. I also liked the fact that it was largely set in my home town, which doesn't happen often! There is potential for more adventures too

    20. I loved this Book. As a child I loved the Gods and the tales of their travels. I love how Peta brings them all together, not staying with Greek or Norse, and there's a couple I had never even heard of.I've never liked the Furies and Peta has portrayed them well. There's a hint of romance to be taken further, but will she regret breaking her own rules.Loved it. 5 stars.

    21. The book was kinda bad at the start which made me want to stop reading. However the second half was a lot better and I ended up sticking it out. Probably wont be reading the rest of the series though.

    22. I really liked this book. It has an exciting, fast paced plot and great characters. The Gods and mythology in a modern day setting worked really well. I will definitely be reading more titles from this author.

    23. I loved this book! The use of gods and mythology in a modern day setting worked really well. I'm not one for writing long reviews but I loved the sassy heroine, the humour and the story kept me interested. I'm looking forward to reading more from this author!

    24. Loved it! Great mythological version, exciting plot, several hotties and pretty nice female protagonist. Excellent read for all mythology fans!
