Welcome to the tour for Secrets of Pantheons, the first book in ARK Horton’s Heroes and Harbingers series! Read on for more info and a chance to win a great giveaway!
Secret of Pantheons (Heroes & Harbingers #1)
Publication Date: June 11th, 2022
Genre: Adult Fantasy Academia
Food fights. Detention. Dissecting fairies for science class. Just another day for teachers at a Magical Public School.
Ms. Sirin’s fate as a death harbinger has ruined her life. She longs to be more than a herald of doom, aspiring to impact lives in her teaching career. But when a new student with bold dreams joins her class and is picked as this century’s Chosen One, Ms. Sirin’s dark power senses a terrible sacrifice to come.
Finn MacCool’s warrior past didn’t prepare him for a hundred years of teaching for his community service. Spending the last decade of his sentence at a new school, the immortal develops a crush on his tempting but aloof coworker. The Irish legend blows his chance when he butts heads with the Council of Pantheons’ latest brave heroine—who also happens to be Ms. Sirin’s favorite pupil.
However, the Chosen One’s quest isn’t all it seems. Pavlina’s lethal prophecies come to pass, and her gift warns of more to come. Will this daring trio of heroes have what it takes to make the grade, or will they fail before they even make it to Summer Break?
Set in an alternate reality of Jacksonville, Florida, this adult urban fantasy is the first book in the Secret of Pantheons series. If you enjoy a hearty helping of mythology, found family, and unbreakable bonds, this book is for you. Class is in session with Heroes & Harbingers—delve in now before the bell rings!

If you don’t know, fantasy is my absolute favorite genre, so there was no chance I’d miss out on Secrets of Pantheons by A.R.K. Horton. I’m glad I didn’t! This is right up my alley and once I started reading, I could barely put it down.
Secrets of Pantheons is the first book on the Heroes & Harbingers series and I can’t wait to read the next. It is a dark academia/urban fiction that has a satisfying amount of political intrigue and romance. I really enjoyed the “Chosen One” aspect combined with portal fantasy. Through a series of twists and turns, the writing became more addictive over time and I very much got lost in the world.
Overall, this is a breath of fresh air for me. I truly enjoy discovering new-to-me fantasy authors and look forward to reading more from A.R.K. Horton in the future. Secrets of Pantheons leaves you wanting more and I’m (im)patiently waiting for the next book. Don’t miss out!
Thank you to R&R Book Tours for the free review copy and tour invite. All opinions are my own and unbiased.
A.R.K. Horton is a small woman made of round shapes and long sighs. Children and animals surround her in her Florida home. Her vice is hoarding responsibilities, and she has the tired eyes to prove it. They still have a sparkle, though, seeing the next project ahead.
She began writing as a child when she became obsessed with learning about the most obscure fairytales, folktales, and myths. Now, as a Pagan Witch, she uses the stories she loved growing up with, as well as her own spiritual journey, to inspire her blogs and novels.
