Blog Tour: Review + #Giveaway: Secrets of Artemis (Teen Goddess #1) by C.K. Brooke









 
Secrets of Artemis (Teen Goddess #1)
by 
C.K. Brooke
 
Genre: YA Romantic Mythology
Release Date: October 29th 2015



Not even the god of gods could command my heart not to love…

In Ancient Greece, the goddess Artemis was venerated as a maiden huntress, swift with her bow and arrows, and eternally chaste. But could there be more to her story? Perhaps Lady Artemis had envisioned quite a different destiny than the one her father, Zeus, had chosen for her. What if she hadn’t merely pined after the giant huntsman, Orion, but had secretly partaken of a forbidden romance with him?

From prolific fantasy writer C.K. Brooke comes an original divine novel, in which Artemis’s classic myths are retold as never before, in her own voice, as the young goddess sets the record straight and reveals the true account of her immortal life – and love.

REVIEW

I have always loved mythology, of every kind, so I was really excited to get my hands on this book. Of course, I'm a huge fan of Brooke's so it was a no-brainer that this was going to be yet another epic read from this masterful storyteller, and boy did she deliver everything I was expecting and so much more.

I loved how Brooke portrayed Armetis as more than just a goddess that is to be worshipped. She was a fierce huntress with a heart of gold (or should that be silver?) and she was relatable in the way that even with all of her power and divinity, she was still a girl with emotions, and at times she really struggled with them. Very much a coming of age tale, this book took me on the journey that saw Armetis develop into a beautiful woman, one with plenty of substance and fire.

My heart shattered the moment she fired her arrow at her brother's challenge, and when she realized what she had done, the pain and sorrow she had to live with was crippling. Something I really enjoyed about this story was that Brooke didn't sugar coat anything. She tore her characters in half and forced them to feel every emotion. Whether from lost love, or the other atrocities that Armetis had to face, this book will leave you aching and breathless. A superb read.
