Book Review of Secrets of Artemis by C.K. Brooke

Secrets of Artemis (Teen Goddess #1) by C.K. Brooke
Genre: Young Adult (Mythology/Fantasy Romance)
Date Published: October 29, 2015
Publisher: Elphame Press

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.

Secrets of Artemis is the first book in the Teen Goddess series by C.K. Brooke. This story is told entirely from Artemis's point of view. It was a wonderful retelling of her entire life. The author took apart the myth and reassembled it as her own, and the writing was so well put together and thought out that at times, it made me forget what was unique to this story and what was from the original myth. It all just seemed to fit with the whole idea of Artemis.

Secrets of Artemis by C.K. Brooke was kindly provided to me by YA Bound Book Tours for review. The opinions are my own.
