Overview
How would you react if the person you loved simply vanished? No trace, no explanation. Just gone. Liv understood why she had become isolated at her new university-why she had no friends and why she had an unresolved anger pent up inside her, just waiting to explode. What she didn't understand was why her boyfriend and best friend of seven years, Hayden, vanished without leaving any trace or explanation to warrant his disappearance from her life. As her eighteenth birthday approaches, Liv starts having visions of Hayden, while being followed on campus and almost murdered, before she is brought to a new school: Puerdios University, School of the Gods. Liv is propelled into Hayden's world, where mythologies of the past become reality and she is catapulted into a war between the Pure and Dark Gods. As Liv tries to combat her place in this regal, powerful society, she learns more about herself and her own history than she could have ever imagined.
Description

How would you react if the person you loved simply vanished? No trace, no explanation. Just gone. Liv understood why she had become isolated at her new university-why she had no friends and why she had an unresolved anger pent up inside her, just waiting to explode. What she didn't understand was why her boyfriend and best friend of seven years, Hayden, vanished without leaving any trace or explanation to warrant his disappearance from her life. This was supposed to be their plan, not hers. As her eighteenth birthday approaches, Liv is determined to change her depressing routine and start enjoying her college experience. So, instead of constantly distracting her destructive thoughts by binge-reading or studying, she makes an internal pact to live life as she used to before becoming a shadow of who she once was. Without realizing it, Liv's secret birthday pact will forever change her life. She suddenly begins noticing things. Unusual things. From a beautiful creature with piercing blue eyes following her around campus, to ghostly visions of her ex-boyfriend when she least expects it. She begins to witness strangers who know her name and angrily talk about her whereabouts in secret, insinuating that she's in danger - although she has no idea why. After one potentially-fatal night where Liv is almost murdered, her life becomes a present-day mythology, resulting in a very different college experience than she ever imagined her legal adult life to encompass. Liv is brought to a new school, Puerdios University, School of the Gods and propelled into Hayden's world, where mythologies of the past become a reality - but with a new generation of young Gods - and she is catapulted into a war between Pure and Dark. As Liv tries to combat her place in this regal, powerful society, she learns why Hayden had to break-off their strong, impenetrable relationship: Pure Gods are not allowed to interact with mortals, and around their eighteen birthday, all deities inherit their powers and become legally bound to follow all Pure royal decrees. Surrounded by Elites - leaders of governmental pillars who are the most powerful of Gods aside from the Royal family - Liv battles finding her place at this new university. When she is invited to the King's birthday symposium, she begins discovering more details to explain her current position. Hayden is the crowned prince of Gods and holds enough power to persuade his father, King Rowan, to let Liv study at Puerdios University until the radical Dark Gods cause is eliminated and she is able to safely return to the mortal world. During her time with the Gods, Liv can't help but magnetize toward Hayden, and he to her. Although he abruptly ended their relationship at the beginning of summer, their feelings for one another never faded away. So, despite the risk, royal protocol and fatally potential consequences, Liv and Hayden reunite in secret, unable to keep their relationship platonic nor stay away from one another. King Rowan discovers the forbidden romance and sentences Liv to prison and Hayden, to what Liv believes, the Underworld. As she is dragged out to witness his execution, Liv cannot accept a world in which Hayden does not exist. Before he is prosecuted, Liv unleashes a whirlwind of power, unexpectedly releasing him from his bindings as well as preventing any harm done to him. One thing is certain: mortals would never be able to conjure such powers. And Liv just may have just become a character in one of her beloved mythologies.
