I really loved this book. Very funny at times and the characters were great to read about. I loved the ending. I now want to read Hades story, This one I read first not knowing it was a series. You should read this one at least.
Yeah it is listed under romance, but I love this series. In this book an interior decorator and formally abused woman finds herself in Las Vegas. Of course she soon finds herself the love interest of the Greek God of Light. Its hard to say this with a straight face about a book in the Romance category or about a woman falling in love with a Greek God visiting Las Vegas for the weekend, but I found her reactions and action entirely believable.
Very good! I keep loving PC Cast more & more after each of her books. Make sure to read this one after Goddess of Spring- it will make more sense and not ruin the story of that one.
Zeus, father of the Gods has prepared a treat for his children. He has decided to open a portal into the modern world of Las Vegas for his children to play in and enjoy on the weekends, much to the dismay of his child Bacchus who has ruled that particular realm single-handedly for the past few eons.
Artemis, Goddess of The Hunt and Moon talks her brother Apollo into a weekend of fun in Las Vegas and together the twins of night and day head out to wreak havoc on Sin City. Bacchus however, still angry at the disrespect the other Gods and Goddess are showing his realm invokes an ancient ritual that unfortunately falls on Pamela...
Pamela, a modern mortal woman who is visiting Las Vegas on a work trip suddenly finds herself bound Artemis after accidentally spilling wine, pricking her finger, and whispering her secret wish: for romance to come back into her life. Strangely drawn to her Apollo soon finds himself falling in love with Pamela and must somehow face the fact that he cannot pretend to be a mortal forever. He must tell her the truth and accept her decision; after all he could never be a soul mate with a mortal...right?
Despite the seemingly cheesy theme, "The Goddess of Light" was exceptionally good! I was more than pleasantly surprised. I've always been a P.C. Cast fan, but after reading "Goddess of the Sea," I didn't have high hopes for "Goddess of Light." Boy was I wrong!
While "Goddess of Light" had the same sort of fantastical and seemingly crazy mystical theme that "Goddess of the Sea" had, it was less...cartoonish? For lack of a better word? The characters had more depth to them than in Cast's first book in the series and I definitely related with Pamela more than the characters in "Goddess of the Sea."
I love Cast's lighthearted approach to romance novels. Yes, there are great sex scenes, but they are always brief, tasteful, and add to the plot of the story as opposed to becoming the purpose for writing the book. Cast has a wonderful sense of humor that she conveys well into her writing and into her characters.
Cast always delivers. Though her writing is predictable, it's a comfortable sort of predictable that is probably the reason I keep reaching time and time again for her books. These are the sort of things you need to keep in mind when reaching for one of her books. If you start one with unrealistic expectations of epic battles and dragons you will be sorely disappointed. On the flipside, for those of us who appreciate a well written romance and a good fantasy, Cast will never disappoint.
I loved this book. The laughter and the love. great!
