I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review All opinions expressed are my own35 stars Wow What an excellent first novel this was an exciting and very well written story I haven’t read a lot of Greek mythology or retellings but I really enjoyed this take on common myths and legends that even a novice would be familiar with My favorite aspects of this were definitely in order Atalanta and Kahina While I did feel their voices were written fairly similarly and there were times when my wires got crossed with who I was reading I really enjoyed them as MCs Atalanta is a strong willed bad ass protagonist who managed to maintain that strength while also showing and feeling fear and anxiety I thought it was a very realistic depiction of someone facing Gods and monsters and I think it added a lot of depth to the story and her character She was easily my favorite part I really enjoyed the subtle under played romance between Atalanta and Kahina I thought it was sweet and charming and didn’t detract from the story or come into play at unrealistic times This loses it’s 5th start for me because while the writing was excellent throughout the novel the over attention to detail left parts of the book a little slow and sagging I also felt the “rules of magic” could’ve used a little fleshing out It read a little like Tammi didn’t think it need further explanation becauseGreek mythology soGods duh I wish we could’ve gotten a bit world magic building here to better understand this retelling versus knowing things about Greek mythology and having to fill it in ourselves Overall I really enjoyed this story and I’m really excited for this author I think it was generally a fast paced fun and enjoyable read that I would certainly suggest to anyone interested in Greek mythology and retellings
