This was a good book, though more of an adventure than anything else. It did remind me of many of the Greek myths, with lots of petty fighting in between the gods with the humans stuck in the middle. The story was well written but I think many of the characters were undeveloped so it was very hard for me to connect and feel anything for them.

Competent Fantasy

This is a decent debut fantasy novel that may well begin a good series, and it sores above many in seeming to lack the misogyny and other bigotry that is sadly so prevalent in the genre.

However, I only made it half way through before I decided to stop as I just wasn't grabbed by any aspect of it really. The concept of not all powerful gods tied to areas is interesting, but I just wasn't getting anything from this. As a tale from here to there doing fantasy stuff it's written rather well, but lacked the depth I need to get my teeth into a book.

Hessa is a warrior priestess on a quest for redemption after she fails to heed the warning of her goddess. This story is beautifully written, the main character is beautifully fleshed out as we follow her on this journey in which she has to face the decision to trust and do as she is told, or go against all she has ever known. I really don't have any complains about this book and I'm really looking forward to book 2.

Rather too detailed and drawn out for my enjoyment but a good tale of adventure and otherworldliness.
