Project Pandora (The Olympus Experiments, #1)Project Pandora by Aden Polydoros
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

Tyler Bennett has spent most of his life going from one foster home to the next without having anyone in his life that he can trust so he’s mostly a loner. Tyler has been unaware though that there is something about himself that even he doesn’t realize, he’s a member of Project Pandora and is being controlled and used as an assassin with no memory of the events until now.

As Tyler begins regaining memories and control from the voice giving him order he realizes that he’s not the only one being used by Project Pandora. Tyler finds that he’s going to have to learn to trust others within the group if there will be any hope of them surviving the Project.

Project Pandora is the first book in the Olympus Experiments by Aden Polydoros. The series begins following four young adults with the chapters changing the point of view between them as their stories begin to unfold and find out how they are involved in the project. The story is a bit of suspense mixed with some romance with the relationships forming between the characters.

I did start off this one finding it a bit confusing in the beginning trying to remember which characters was which as each of them also have a Greek code name used when they are under the influence of the project. Then there is also parts between chapters where the “subjects” in the project are also referred to as a number so that also added in trying to keep track of who was being referred to at which point.

The story however was a fun one to follow as it built throughout the book. The opening pages throws the reader right into an assassination and builds the intensity of what and where could this go from here. I did find myself at the end with that thought too of that’s it….where’s this going to go from here on out as it is obvious there’s much more for the author to tell in any following installments.

After reading this installment to the series I decided on giving it 3.5 stars but I have a feeling that now that I am more familiar with the characters and how the story works the ratings will probably go up from here.

I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.

    • To be honest maybe I’d have even been a little higher had I not picked it up over a weekend with family around interrupting, that didn’t help me remember who was who as far as code names/real names etc.
