A delightful opening to an epic fantasy that features gods, dragons, and compelling characters, Deity's Soulmate by Angelina Kerner is a brilliant story that will find a comfortable home with fantasy fans who adore mythology. Meet Gardenia, the daughter of Athena, a dare-devil kind of young goddess who defies Zeus and receives the discipline of the ages. It is after choosing to travel to earth without permission from Zeus that she is given an assignment that could take a century to complete. But what she does in return will surprise everyone, including Zeus. She sets out on a journey to find the mythical creatures, the dragons, who themselves are enemies of the gods. She wants to discover a secret they have kept for long. Watch as she faces insurmountable challenges thrown her way by Hera, and how she will find love with a mortal.
For readers who love great settings and extraordinary characters, Deity's Soulmate will be a delightful read. It is interesting to see how Angelina Kerner weaves elements of mythology into this gripping story; her excellent prose is equally seductive. Her characters are awesome and I enjoyed Gardenia every step of the way. The plot is well-crafted with loads of surprises. The mission of the deity is not an easy one and the reader will love to watch as she grows through it, gaining courage, discovering her hidden skills, and maturing through the adventure. One has the feeling that something awful could happen any moment soon as one reads from page to page, engrossed in the exciting plot. This was a huge fantasy treat for me, a story I read in one sitting and I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.
