Secrets of Artemis (Blog Tour) Review

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

Summary from Goodreads:

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.

My Review: 
Wow! I wasn't sure what this book would be like, I knew it sounded very interesting though. It's the story of the Goddess Artemis. From her beginnings, to the end of the book, she was a vividly written character. Other Gods and mythological creatures are present in this book, which really was quite a lovely surprise. I enjoyed those bits woven into the book. I do like Mythology, but I am no expert, so I can't really claim to be familiar with the tale of Artemis. I think that the writer definitely brought the story to life, and it kept me reading (quickly too!) from start to finish. 

The Secrets of Artemis is a fun, interesting and entertaining read that I think anyone with a liking of mythology would enjoy!
