When everything you believed about yourself is a lie, how do you unlock the truth? Evangeline Theopolis has nightmares about the violent deaths of women she has never met. Her single mother, Olivia, suffers delusions she can't hide. And Malledy, a brilliant young man, may have a disease that will leave him paralyzed and insane. Their lives are about to collide. On Evangeline's 16th birthday her mother gives her a necklace with an antique key charm--a family heirloom, though no one knows what the key unlocks.
Her mom is hospitalized. Her godmother attempts murder. An ancient Order tries to kill Evangeline, and a lethal sect to kidnap her. Nothing makes sense--especially Evangeline's own face, which has morphed from geeky to eerily stunning; the ancient key that feels strangely alive against her skin; and the magical abilities she begins to possess.
Evangeline must use her wits and supernatural powers to fight her deadly adversaries and discover her true identity. But can she accept who she really is and save the world? Read more Read less.

See a Problem?
I have a high standard for the books I'll read. I take advantage of the Kindle feature to sample books before I buy. I reject quite a few. Life is too short for mediocre books. This book however was fantastic. It's similar to the Hunger Games and Harry Potter series It's got all the ingredients of a classic adventure story with some fresh perspective conspiracy, thriller, heros, villians, adventure, plot twists, parrallel story lines.
Similar to a Dan Brown book Angels and Demons. It sucked me in from page 1 and never slowed down. Good luck putting this one down. Characters in the story differ from version to version. Many versions include Zeus, who is very powerful and gets mad easily; Pandora, who is a beautiful, nagging woman, the first woman ever; and Epimetheus, who is afraid of Zeus.

Don't forget our archive of more than icebreaker activities. Write a letter to your students. In that letter, introduce yourself to students. Tell them about your hopes for the new school year and some of the fun things you'll be doing in class. In addition, tell students a few personal things about yourself; for example, your likes and dislikes, what you did over the summer, and your hobbies.
Ask questions throughout the letter. You might ask what students like most about school, what they did during the summer, what their goals for the new school year are, or what they are really good at. In your letter, be sure to model the correct parts of a friendly letter! On the first day of school, display your letter on an overhead projector. Then pass each student a sheet of nice stationery. Have the students write return letters to you.

In this letter, they will need to answer some of your questions and tell you about themselves. This is a great way to get to know each other in a personal way! Mail the letter to students before school starts, and enclose a sheet of stationery for kids to write you back. Each piece should have a matching piece of the same length.

There should be enough pieces so that each student will have one. Then give each student one piece of string, and challenge each student to find the other student who has a string of the same length. After students find their matches, they can take turns introducing themselves to one another. You can provide a list of questions to help students "break the ice," or students can come up with their own.
You might extend the activity by having each student introduce his or her partner to the class.

Give each student a slip of paper with the name of an animal on it. Then give students instructions for the activity: They must locate the other members of their animal group by imitating that animal's sound only. No talking is allowed. The students might hesitate initially, but that hesitation soon gives way to a cacophony of sound as the kids moo, snort, and giggle their way into groups.
The end result is that students have found their way into their homerooms or advisory groups for the school year, and the initial barriers to good teamwork have already been broken. Hold a large ball of yarn. Start by telling the students something about yourself. Then roll the ball of yarn to a student without letting go of the end of the yarn. The student who gets the ball of yarn tells his or her name and something good about himself or herself. Then the student rolls the yarn to somebody else, holding on to the strand of yarn.
Soon students have created a giant web. After everyone has spoken, you and all the students stand up, continuing to hold the yarn. Start a discussion of how this activity relates to the idea of teamwork -- for example, the students need to work together and not let others down. To drive home your point about teamwork, have one student drop his or her strand of yarn; that will demonstrate to students how the web weakens if the class isn't working together.
Questions might include the following: What is your name? Where were you born? How many brothers or sisters do you have? What are their names? Do you have any pets? Tell students to write those questions on a piece of paper and to add to that paper five more questions they could ask someone they don't know. Pair students, and have each student interview his or her partner and record the responses. Then have each student use the interview responses to write a "dictionary definition" of his or her partner to include in a Student Dictionary.
You might model this activity by creating a sample dictionary definition about yourself. Born in Riverside, California. No brothers or sisters. Have students bring in small pictures of themselves to paste next to their entries in the Student Dictionary.
Bind the definitions into a book, and display it at back-to-school night. Ask each student to write a brief description of his or her physical characteristics on one index card and his or her name on the other. Physical characteristics usually do not include clothing, but if you teach the primary grades, you might allow students to include clothing in their descriptions.
Put all the physical characteristic index cards in a shoe box, mix them up, and distribute one card to each student, making sure that no student gets his or her own card. Give students ten minutes to search for the person who fits the description on the card they hold. There is no talking during this activity, but students can walk around the room.
At the end of the activity, tell students to write on the card the name of the student who best matches the description. Then have students share their results. How many students guessed correctly? Patricia McHugh, John W.
Pandora’s Box story – Greek mythology
Set up a circle of chairs with one less chair than the number of students in the class. Play music as the students circle around the chairs. When the music stops, the students must sit in a seat. Unlike the traditional game, the person without a seat is not out. Instead, someone must make room for that person.
Then remove another seat and start the music again. The kids end up on one another's laps and sharing chairs! You can play this game outside, and you can end it whenever you wish. Afterward, stress the teamwork and cooperation the game took, and how students needed to accept one another to be successful. Reinforce that idea by repeating this game throughout the year. Danielle Weston, Willard School, Sanford, Maine Hands-On Activity Have students begin this activity by listing at least 25 words that describe them and the things they like. No sentences allowed, just words!
Then ask each student to use a dark pen to trace the pattern of his or her hand with the fingers spread apart. There's a wide variety of cultures represented, which is always fun to see. While all these stories have some element of the macabre, there are some that include something sweet and light amid the horror "The Patience of Isis" and "Pele Comes to Hawai'i" are I am not a horror reader by any stretch of the imagination, but I thought this would be a fun thing to read during Halloween.
While all these stories have some element of the macabre, there are some that include something sweet and light amid the horror "The Patience of Isis" and "Pele Comes to Hawai'i" are the two that come to mind. The artwork is gorgeous - I could have spent hours just studying the images accompanying the stories. Definitely recommended for anyone looking for something spooky for Halloween or if you just enjoy myths from a bunch of different cultures. Sep 28, Emily rated it really liked it. As I've never read or heard of many of the stories within, I can't attest to how 'twisted' they are, but the illustrations are as beautiful as ever and this'll be sitting on my coffee table through the Halloween season.
Nov 26, em rated it did not like it Shelves: I love mythology, but this book was so awful I had to stop reading after about 6 of them. The myths were so condensed that they became quite confusing to muddle through. I really really tried to enjoy this, but I hated it.
Mar 10, Camille rated it liked it. The art is awesome but most of the stories are not true to the original telling. The writer put her own interpretation and rewrote the stories. Not a fan when someone writes off of the path of storytelling. Aug 02, Katka Lady rated it did not like it Shelves: The stories contained within this book are just simply myths. Most people will know at least one of these myths, either from their own culture, or from school.
They didn't even change the myths. This condensing and cutting has actually made the myths less interesting and even a bit confusing. Many of the myths have more than one jammed together. For example, the Greek The stories contained within this book are just simply myths. For example, the Greek myth about the birth of Zeus and fall of Kronos is compacted into the same myth as Prometheus and Pandora. Or the Egyptian myth about how we got a days in a year tied in with the myth about the death of Osiris.
It makes for a muddled mess of a book. I love ancient myths and cultural tales, however this book was a terrible version of these stories. Dec 21, Rachel rated it it was ok. Although this book was not bad I much preferred Twisted Fairy Tales. I read the introduction and they listed all the different countries and everything they got these myths from but I would have preferred that at the beginning of each story when they have the title if they added the country or region like Norse or something from where these stories are from.
Some of them are obvious, but not all which is why I would have liked it. With books like these with short stories it's easy to pick up and Although this book was not bad I much preferred Twisted Fairy Tales. With books like these with short stories it's easy to pick up and put down Not bad and I will add it to my shelf, but I much preferred their other book of fairy tales. Oct 08, Miss Bookiverse rated it really liked it Shelves: This book is worth checking out just for the stunning artwork and design.
It is so, so beautiful. It does not only include full-page illustrations, every page is designed individually. The eerie style matches the ruthless stories perfectly.
