Reading this story was like going on a rollercoaster ride with lots of exciting twists and turns and laugh-out-loud pure fun. There was never a dull moment - non-stop action full of Machiavellian machinations throughout. This story seamlessly combines Greek and Eastern mythology with Star Wars and Star Trek and Stargate references. Cybele and her friends could easily have sat in on The Big Bang Theory and got into philosophical arguments with Sheldon, Leonard, Howard, and Raj about the merits of Batman vs. Spiderman as the best superhero. I also really loved the idea of taking established religion back to its pagan roots and resurrecting a Mother Goddess cult and then setting it not in someplace expected like California but instead in Winnipeg, Canada aka Winterpeg. Funny, feminist, geeky, the perfect blend for a great story.

I was extremely entertained by this novel. I LOVED the character of Cybele and I think Mohammed is brilliant at writing dialogue. I felt like I was in the character's living room, if that makes sense. I thought it was cool that I didn't know how the novel was going to end until it ended. I recommend this read!

I really loved how much pure fun this story was to read. The action was well-paced and the character development was excellent. I loved all the pop culture references including the Star Trek/Star Wars/Stargate allusions. There was also a lot of witty banter back and forth between all the characters. The idea of starting up a Mother Goddess cult in Winnipeg and then trying to figure out how to fund a cult was quite inventive and creative. There was also a philosophical underpinning to the story concerning the nature of morality and so-called eternal truths. This was a story that could be read on so many different levels. The main character Cybele is funny but flawed - she wants to be good but not too good. The villain of the story - Janus - is quite multi-dimensional and the reader can't help but be sympathetic towards him. This is a great story and I can't wait to read more books by this author.
