Happy book birthday to Deity’s Soulmate! I’m thrilled to celebrate the first year of this whimsical fantasy!
Title: Deity’s Soulmate
Author: Angelina Kerner
Publication Date: April 3rd, 2017
Genre: Fantasy/ Mythology/ Young Adult
From author Angelina Kerner (Seven Hours: Challenge Accepted) comes an all-new fantasy series about Gardenia, a daughter of Athena, and her 100 years of coursework on how to create whole new worlds and subjects of her own.
A sheltered school child in a realm of condescending gods and goddesses, Gardenia goes to Earth on a dare to witness the unsavory side of mankind for herself. Believing she can do better, she undertakes the formation of an entire galaxy, but without permission from Zeus.
Zeus disciplines her by assigning an epic 13-fold creational lesson destined to take her a century to complete. But he is taken aback once more when she makes an odd choice. She vows to fulfill this knowledge quest by tracking down a lost race of dragons, and discovering the secrets they’ve kept since time began.
Searching the universe to meet even one dragon may be a fool’s errand, but that’s the least of her worries. For ancient wartime resentments linger between the nations of dragons and deities, and some dragons would attack Gardenia on sight!
Yet she ventures out undaunted, learning unexpected things about nomadic life, tender love, and mortal peril along the way. The biggest surprise of all, though, goes by the name of Ri. Ri may be the man of her dreams, the voice in her head, the dragon she’s seeking, or all these things and more…
Deity’s Soulmate was such a fun, intriguing story! For being a short, quick read, it really packed a punch! I loved the uniqueness and imagination of it all. Angelina did a great job with pulling me in to the story and helping me visualize the universe and all the places Gardenia traveled.
Gardenia was the goddess that befriended dragons. I loved her spunk and stubbornness! I enjoyed traveling with and her watching her learn and grow as a person and goddess. I loved watching her blossom in to woman hood and test the waters with love.
I really enjoyed Angelina’s twist on mythology and creation. She took the stories of old and created gods and goddesses that were almost human. Deity’s Soulmate read like one of those exciting soap operas that you just can’t stop watching! It had fun twists, passion, and creativity.
I think what I enjoyed the most was the fact that Gardenia went against everything she was forced to be and took fate in to her own hands. She tried to learn on her own terms and tried to be a good goddess, unbiased from the lies and prejudices her family fed her. And, in doing so, she befriended some incredible dragons, and found a new family. I’d rate it 3.5-4 stars and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for something fun and unique to read.
To celebrate the anniversary of Deity’s Soulmate, the author is giving away 3 digital copies of her latest book Follow the Snowflakes!
