My Review
Heaven's Vault is a short story that follows Maia, a young woman who isn't quite as normal as she seems to be. Unable to remember who she is, Maia spends the story slowly uncovering the truth about herself. And what she discovers may finally set her free.

So when I first read the synopsis for Heaven's Vault, I was intrigued and couldn't wait to see what it was all about. I can definitely say I wasn't disappointed.

As a lover of Greek mythology, and mythology in general, really, I found it to be a unique little story with a great plot, great characters, and a great ending. It wasn't what I expected, and that's a good thing.

Maia is a bit strange at times, but once the truth about her comes to light, it all makes sense. And the man who helps her on her journey of self-discovery is a really lovely character, as well.

The ending did make me a little sad, but overall, I rather enjoyed the story.

If you like mythology that isn't your typical, everyday Greek God story, pick up a copy of Heaven's Vault. You won't regret it.
