This was a great book overall. I haven't read many mythology retellings and i don't really know much about Mythology in general but i still enjoyed the book. I was a bit confused at first....as to why Artemis had or needed huntresses... and i still dont know if that is something covered in the actually mythology, but it was still an intriguing concept.
The characters were written great and were very unique but i found myself disliking most of them because of their personality. Artemis, for one, came off really rude. Atalanta was ok, but i'm not sure if i like her completely...she seems a bit cold...i kept picturing Rosalie from Twilight, before she became "nicer". I really liked Kahina and Phelix and kind of thought they were a great duo! I like the king too...but i feel a lot of his story was left out. The suitors were interesting.
The storyline and pacing was sort of dragging though. The races seemed to be repetitious and a large part of the narrative. Also, it was hard to gauge how much time was passing. The beginning and ending bits were pretty action driving and I really enjoyed those parts besides from the actually ending...it seemed a bit too convenient...and unrealistic.
The story overall was great and I loved that it featured strong women and diversity! I'd recommend this to anyone who likes mythology and doesn't mind reading lgbt books.
I'm an avid reader and love most all books, but my favorite genres tend to be mystery, adventure, science fiction and classics. Genres I tend to shy away from include romance, contemporary fiction and chick lit. If I’m not actually reading books, I’m probably at work shelving them at my local library.
