Really a great read! Loved the storyline and how it all played out. The main characters weren't whinny and didn't keep repeating the same thing over and over. She was a strong self confident woman and that was so refreshing. A couple twist and turns that really make it a must read good book.
I enjoyed this book. It started out a little slow but picked up and had a great ending.
I love books that use ancient myth as part of the story. What fun! I can't wait for her next book to come my way.
