Radiant Sin

Summary

There’s nowhere more dangerous than Olympus…and no one more captivating than its golden god: Apollo. Keeper of secrets, master of his shining realm…and the only man I am powerless to deny.

As a disgraced member of a fallen house, Cassandra has seen firsthand what comes from trusting the venomous Thirteen. But when the maddeningly gorgeous and kind Apollo asks her to go undercover as his plus-one at a week-long party hosted by a dangerous new power player…Cassandra reluctantly agrees to have his back. On one condition: when it’s all over, and Apollo has the ammunition he needs to protect Olympus, she and her sister will be allowed to leave. For good.

Apollo may be the city’s official spymaster, but it’s his ability to inspire others that keeps him at the top. Despite what the rest of Olympus says, there’s no one he trusts more than Cassandra. Yet even as their fake relationship takes a wicked turn for the scaldingly hot, a very real danger surfaces… threatening not only Cassandra and Apollo, but the very heart of Olympus itself.

My Thoughts

Radiant Sin is the 4th installment in the Dark Olympus series, and this series continues to show up and provide a fantastic read. It felt like a twisted retelling of the game Clue, and for all the right reasons.
Once again, the stakes were high, the spice was spicy, the characters were well developed, and the emotions ran deep.

Cassandra is a feisty and feral FMC and I love her all the more for it. She is intelligent, sharp, prickly around the edges, gorgeous, plus size, fashion forward, and still interacting with the very people who would love to strike her down for what her parents did. Which by the way, was attempt to murder one of the Thirteen to take their seat. She holds her true emotions close and her trust even closer, and will do everything she can to get a 1 way ticket for herself and her sister out of Olympus for good.

Apollo is handsome, intelligent, and so professional around Cassandra it is painful. Reading his POV and realizing he fell for her so long ago is devastating and also so chivalrous of him for trying to keep the power imbalance out of play.

When the only way for them to try to get info on Midas involves posing as a happy couple, things get steamy quick and I was all here for it. Cassandra and Apollo can’t keep their feelings from each other and it quickly devolves into a wild passionate whirlwind behind closed doors – and in closets, sitting rooms, etc.

I loved Radiant Sin, and the POV from both Cassandra and Apollo was utter perfection. Katee Robert did a fantastic job describing the events from each perspective and I really felt like I was in each of their heads.

The plot of Radiant Sin was great! I love an unnervingly charming villain who plays with people like they are dolls. It was so creepy and interesting, even when nothing particularly bad was happening. The suspense was perfect.

I loved how it turned out at the end, and can’t wait to continue on in the series.

Overall, Radiant Sin by Katee Robert is an exercise in lust, affection, murder, spying, trust, and more, so get ready for a wild ride because it sure was one. Definitely would recommend this book and the whole series!
