Artemis’s Hunt by Lia Davis
Book #2½: Sons of War Series
Source: Purchase
My Rating: 4½/5 stars
My Mini-Review:

For the last 1,500 years, Artemis, goddess of the hunt has mourned the loss of her one true mate, Evangelos. With no explanation other than, “he is no longer with us,” from her father, Zeus, Artemis was left alone to raise their daughter. That would be the daughter Evangelos had no knowledge of prior to his leaving Olympus.

Turns out, when Zeus said, “he is no longer with us,” he didn’t mean dead just literally no longer in Olympus. Now, imagine you just spent 1,500 years mourning the loss of your true mate, raising your daughter solo only to find out your dad lied. Pissed off doesn’t even come close to what Artemis is following that big reveal. The hits just keep on coming when Zeus tells Artemis her beloved will be allowed to return to Olympus once Artemis delivers a message to her step-mother, Hera. Hera dislikes Artemis just about as much as Artemis dislikes Zeus so delivering a message to Hera should be loads of fun.

Hera is a queen b&tch and she isn’t going to make the delivery of her husband’s message easy. In fact, Hera enjoys making things difficult so Artemis isn’t going at it alone. After some very awkward explanations, some very emotional welcome backs, and some really good naughty bits, Artemis and Evangelos set out through a series of ugly traps to find Hera. Along the way, they encounter poison, a really nasty and totally crazy vampire, and friendlies who have no problem stepping into the fray to help their friends and loved ones.

The Bottom Line: This mid-series novella is such a great addition to the Sons of War series. Artemis made a brief appearance in book two, Ashes of War when she was not only introduced as Ash’s mother but the groundwork for her own story was laid. Artemis’s story is 1,500 years in the making and it is such a sweet and sexy reunion with her mate. What I enjoyed most about this read - and the appearance of the deities in the other books – is how truly human they behave. Oh, sure, Artemis and the other deities have some super-awesome abilities and they are immortal but their actions and reactions in this series are often very human which makes them far more relatable. In sincerely hope, as the Sons of War series continues to grow that there will be more of these deity stories thrown into the mix. ( )

For the past fifteen hundred years, Artemis, goddess of the hunt, has been mourning the death of the love of her life, Evangelos, minor god of messengers. She has discovered he is alive and banished to the human realm by her father, Zeus. Now Artemis must go on a quest in order to let Evan return to Olympus.

After completing Ashes of War, I had to read Artemis Hunt to see what had happened between Artemis and Evan. Artemis's Hunt is an uplifting novel, filled with excitement.

Artemis is one of my favorite Greek mythology goddesses, so I always enjoy reading new stories with her as a character. I felt bad that she endured fifteen hundred unnecessary years of grief. She is a likeable character that was easy to route for.

I also empathized with Evangelos. True to mythology, he had to suffer for the games the gods play. Having thought that someone you loved was involved with your banishment could not have not had been easy. I’m glad they found out the truth and were given the opportunity to make amends.

I like that Ty and Ashlynn were included in this book and helped out with the mission. Ashlynn is a good daughter. I thought it was cute that she was playing match maker between her parents.

For a short story, Artemis Hunt is packed with loads of action and entertainment. It is wonderful contemporary continuation of Greek Mythology. ( )
