The story centers around a competition known as the Agon, in which every seven years, nine Greek gods are forced to walk the earth as mortals for one week. During this week they must survive capture and death at the hands of the descendants of ancient bloodlines, who are on the hunt to gain the power of the gods. The reader follows the perspective of Lore, the last of the line of Perseus, as she strives to escape the never-ending cycle of violence.

Overall, Lore managed to keep me immersed in the book the entire time, having just enough suspense in each chapter that I was eager to know what happened next. That being said, there are intervals of calm in the story that give the reader time to process anything that happened prior to that moment. These intervals are very well written and don't slow down the flow of the book at all. Also, the story includes some shocking plot twists, which would be unpredictable for a less experienced reader. Personally, I was able to guess a few of the many twists however, the most important ones eluded me until the end. I would say that Lore is a pretty solid book, it wasn't the most memorable thing that I've ever read but it kept me entertained and on the edge of my seat, which is really all I can ask for when it comes to a story.

This book is perfect for anyone who enjoys Greek mythology, and it is targeted towards young adult readers. It is still generally understandable and enjoyable for those who do not have background knowledge of mythology since the book includes just enough exposition to help the reader understand the situation.
