This was a fun read, though it didn't stand out to me in any particular way. The gods and goddesses of Olympia are treated as regular beings (well, mostly), rather like an origins story for superheroes, which I particularly liked. I've read other books about gods where they're treated as such, and it's always more fun for the stories to be told without the characters being deities.

It's not a book that I look to reread all that often, but I have recommended it to friends who also enjoy retellings of old stories, and I find that it's one of the better romance novels I've come across. ( )

The Third book in the enchanting Greek Goddess series

Passionate, inspiring, and full of adventure, this is Athena's tale.

In a time when a girl's place is at home, Athena has been raised wild and free, and resents the limits she's facing. Her blossoming womanhood makes it difficult to indulge her tomboyish ways and she can't understand why women allow men to control their lives. If Athena married anyone, it would be Amoni, the boy from the forge, whose kiss has made her finally feel what it's really like to be a woman.
