Her wish is their command.
Artemis has a plan. Her eye has fallen on the throne of Olympus, and she’ll do anything to get it. She knows Zeus won’t give it up so easily, but she’s determined to dethrone him, none-the-less. Her father is known for his infamous romps amongst the mortals. Surely, there must be something she can use against him?
When her attention is drawn to Callidora Spiros, she soon realizes that her father does indeed have secrets. Brazen and beautiful, the girl piques her interest in more ways than one, though Artemis isn’t quite sure as to how she’s truly tied to the gods. Intent on discovering what her father has kept hidden for so long, she’ll need as much help as she can get.
Demanding and willful, Artemis has been known to achieve her every whim. With the bat of an eyelash, or a simple word, she’s wrapped many a man around her little finger. The gods, on the other hand, aren’t so easy to bring around. Never-the-less, she’s going to do everything possible to gain the upper hand. Mount Olympus will be hers, with or without the help of the other gods and goddesses.

The Goddess's Wishes puts its own spin on Greek mythology with Artemis as the main character. Normally, the goddess of the hunt is described as chaste, but in this novel, she's the opposite. I don't mind things being changed up - I liked the way the author changed Artemis and had her after Zeus's power. This book is a quick read - I read it in one sitting, and it held my attention. I wanted to see if Artemis would succeed in overthrowing her father. The idea was really interesting to me because it's obvious she isn't close to him and that not many of the other gods and goddesses are either. She's carefully testing who she can or cannot trust in her quest, and I thought even if she thinks she can trust someone - why would they be okay with her taking over? Wouldn't they want to take over themselves? This lead me to not trust anyone even if Artemis believed they would help her. Most of the others said it was futile to try to take over, and they seemed happy with the way things are. I couldn't decide why Artemis wasn't happy herself. She seemed to have everything she wanted, and I think the only thing she didn't have that she wanted was ultimate power over EVERYTHING and EVERYONE. Ultimately, the main plot is interesting, but there weren't any subplots that I could tell. There was enough to keep me reading until the end; however, I wanted there to be more to the characters and more to the story than just Artemis's desire to overthrow Zeus. The Goddess's Wishes has a lot of potential to go further than it did, and I'm hoping the story and characters will be more fleshed out in the next book. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Artemis is wanting to take over the throne of Olympus. To do so she needs to take her father Zeus off the throne. She thinks she has found the answer in a girl named Callidora. She believes she is one of Zeus's hidden children and the one in a prophecy. Now she begins her search for answers to who the girl is. She has to watch her back because the more who know her secret the more the chance in Zeus finding out. Artemis is used to men wanting her and using them for her own gain. She tries that with the gods but that is not what they want. She is a power hungry person who will do anything to get what she wants.This book gives you an insight to the authors take on Artemis and what scheme she could come up with. I enjoyed this book as it is a quick read but you get the feel Artemis is about to get into something over her head. She has asked many gods to help her and now has to worry who she can trust. You see many of the Gods make an appearance and I foresee many more showing up later as the series goes. This is a good start to the series that leaves you with many questions and intrigue.
