    Hekate is kind of a weird goddess and this is a weird book It tells her story but it is also kind a preuel to Bull God and a complement to Enchanted Fire as well as the end to the series It's hard to tell since I read all those first and you can't unring a bell but I THINK it does work as a stand alone even if you haven't read the othersHekate is from Ka'anan far to the east of Olympus and while she has a Gift she's a shapeshifter with three favorite human forms grown woman maiden and crone she can also become an animal so she says; she never demonstrates in the book More powerful than this however is her ability to understand reshape and modify magical spellsUnfortunately her evil father is even powerful She flees him having befriended Dionysos along the way and picked up Kabeiros and shapeshifter now permanently trapped in the body of a dog EXCEPT when he is the caves of the deadShe wants to become an Olympian so that she can live in a place where her abilities are accepted not feared but in the end must return to Ka'anan and destroy her father before he becomes even powerful than he has ever beenI enjoyed it and it wrapped up all the loose ends cleanly but It was nice to get a peek at Artemis and Zeus but I would have liked to have seen a book for each Olympic god or goddess especially Apollo and Athena

    I think I have read this before Parts of it seemed familiar It was not probably very compelling that time since I didn't uite remember it but I liked Hekate even thenHowever on this re read I can say that it's a really well written alternative mythology Strong characters good purpose driving changes and realistic conflicts I would strongly recommend I certainly haven't read the rest of the books in the series; I didn't even know that there was a series and so I can't speak to spoilers but this book stands alone really well

    Sort of a preuelseuel to Bull God with bits from her earlier Greek Myth books This wasn't as delightful as the others though there was something I didn't uite like about it somehow Too episodic perhaps the surroundings and cast of extras kept changing Though I don't mind that sometimes Maybe just the romance with a dog factor? The way she told him flat out she loved him and would marry none but him and he apparently didn't notice?I think there was something about how magery and Gifts worked in this book that bothered me inconsistent with the others The caves of the dead? Too many magics?And yet I enjoyed reading it I think I analyse too much that reading and writing reviewsmakes me look for flaws I guess it's possible to take one's role as a reader too seriously Or role as a reviewer? Just reiterations of I enjoyed wouldn't be interesting enough to keep on with And books that really give me something to say that change a view or perception books I fall in love with are too rare Maybe they seemed less rare before because they were the ones I remembered Writing about books can have a sort of flattening effect on experience I mean like the myth of Theuth when Solon told him that writing was an aid to recollection only and no friend to memoryI wonder if that would make sense to anyone? Best I can do
