Deity's Soulmate by Angelina Kerner
Zeus's Daughter 100 years of punishment. Gardenia didn't ask for it. Yet the Fates brewed their plans ever since before she was born. On the day of gaining knowledge about what humanity truly is, Gardenia decides to do something stupid... create a galaxy without permission. Out of that childish choice, something breaks inside of her and she decides to spend her 100 years with dragons. After searching the stars, Gardenia finds her first teacher and then the next and the next. However, what does one do when one falls in love with your family's adversary? When one falls in love with a dragon? And what if the Fates are ready to make their move? Imaginative, amusing, and adventurous, the Goddess Training Trilogy Book 1 is a tale that will possess you to want to travel the stars.
I have gone back and forth about this book. I liked it, I didn't really care for it, it was good, it wasn't exactly my taste, and then it was back to good. Now I'm back to not really knowing how I feel about it. I think mostly liked it.
I enjoyed the Greek mythology aspect. I haven't read any Greek mythology books until this one so it opened my eyes to a whole new category of books. The story line was interesting but it seemed to be a bit confusing at times. The timeline wasn't what I expected. There were times when six years would pass. There just seemed to be a ton of information in this one book.
Deity's Soulmate does end on a cliffhanger so you'll probably want to read the next book when it is available. If you like fantasy YA books then you will probably like this one. I think I give it a 3.5 to 4 stars.
*Note: I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
