    Goddess of Light

    After seeing how Hades has flourished thanks to the addition of the mortal woman, Lina, to his 'life', Zeus decides that the rest of the immortal beings worshipped by the ancients as gods would benefit from some time around mortals as well. What better place than Vegas? Among the first to enter the Kingdom of Vegas are the twins, Artemis and Apollo, under the names Phoebus and Diana. Apollo quickly meets a mortal who has become bound to his sister through an accidental magical wish for love. Pamela has no idea what her random words did, but until she and Apollo fall in love, all the way as it were, Artemis will get her overflow emotions. Therefore, the goddess is determined to make sure they fall for each other. After they do, the problems only increase as mortal and immortal try to make life work. Yet, all that stands between them and pain is one second. *** Though not as much fun as some of the prior goddess books, this is a light hearted escape from reality with a bittersweet quality to balance it out. Artemis and Apollo are strongly reminescent of Maeve and Aidan from Linda L Miller's classic vampire novels, showing how strong the bonds of love can be. ***

    A charmer

    Artemis feels bad for her brother Apollo moaning over losing a mortal to Hades, but she has no idea how to help her sibling get out of his doldrums. That is until their father Zeus opens a portal to Vegas. Though knowing Sin City is Bacchus¿ personal playground, Artemis convinces Apollo that a trip there would do him good....................... Interior designer Pamela Gray is in town decorating the home of author Faust when she gets involved with Artemis. Apollo tries to help his sister, but finds himself attracted to Pamela. To the interior designer¿s shock, she reciprocates having never met anyone like this hunk built like a Greek God. However, the Gods have toyed with mortal females forever, but Apollo sees this time is different as he is in love but he has to persuade Pamela that the universe is not black and white, but many shades of colors including his favorite hue, the gray that he treasures..................... P.C. Cast continues her unique brand of delightfully mixing a modern day romance with a mythological legend. The story line is fast-paced led by two wonderful lead protagonists. The support cast adds depth so that the audience will believe that this is an Olympus invasion of Las Vegas to rival only the Tarkenian years. Fans of mythological contemporary romances will appreciate this creative well written tale.................... Harriet Klausner

    LOVE IT!!!!

    Without a doubt it is one of my favorite book of the Goddess Summoning series. Made me cry like a total idiot. Loved the way she developed the characters.

    Not her best work

    I was really expecting a lot more for Apollo. I didn't really like the setting and the the plot was slow and got on my nerves. At least the girl wasn't too old this time. The ending could have been a lot better.

    Good read, but...

    Although, this is not my favorite of the Goddess Summoning Series, it is still a good (but not great) book. P. C . Cast always does a wonderful job creating interesting, unique, and realistic (yet slightly off) worlds. One thing I love about Ms. Cast is that she creates strong characters. (Usually, her characters, both female and male, are not ones to be wish-washy or let events happen without being an active part of them). The ending of this book was incredibly sweet and the romance is hotter than hot. However, for me, the story just didn't have the pull that some of her previous works do. I love the soul mates idea but I felt that the characters could have been stronger.

    Apollo

    This was a good read. The characters were very well developed and grew as the plot progressed. The only thing is I think the story could have unfolded better if given more pages to do it in. Over all a good book and good read though.

    Two thumbs Up

    Without a doubt this is one of my favorite books in P.C. Cast's Goddess Summoning Series. Cast is an amazing writer and it is evident in this book. I love the way she mixes ancient mythology with our modern world in order to provide us with a romantic and heart felt story. In this book you will learn to view things through a different perspective and learn through Cast's eyes what an immortal would feel if he were stuck in our world for at least a week. Personally I love her idea of what would occur if that were to ever happen.

    ENJOYED THIS BOOK

    I love the characters in this book but the story line was silly (for lack of a better word). Hard to get into. A nice read but I liked other Goddess books better - Goddess of Spring, Goddess of Love and Warrior Rising.

    Beautiful Addition to the Goddess Series

    P.C. Cast surprises again with her ability to bring ancient lore into the modern world. Changing tune from her previous Goddess books by placing the immortal Gods and Goddesses in the fabulous mortal kingdom of Las Vegas- instead of humans entering the realms of the Gods- she updates the story of twins Artemis and Apollo, and their search for the meaning of love. The ending comes as a shock, once again proving Cast to be a masterful storyteller.

    Not My favorite Goddess Book, but Definitely Worth the read.

    Another beautiful romance in P.C. Cast's Goddess Series. The only problem I had with this book was the ending...It kind of made me sad, and left me wanting a slightly different way to conclude such a sweet book.

    LOVED IT!!!

    This is such an amazing book! You will laugh, cry, and fall in love with this one. P.C. Cast is so creative with this modern story of ancient Greek Gods. I highly recommend this one, and can't wait to get the rest of her books!
