Oh My God, I LOVED this book!!!
Goddess Of Light was an amazing read for me and I'm currently struggling with words and thoughts, that seem unimportant and imperative-- all at once, trying hard to place even the barest of magic I felt into this review.
I'd already read and fallen hoplessly-in-love with the Goddess Of Spring and discovering that I liked this one better (though by a mere difference of, lets say.. a hair
weird I know, but go along with whatever I say, I've lost my mind and heart to this one) than the one I just mentioned had been a completely unexpected bombshell for me too. Really.
Apollo. Sun God for the Romans. Beautiful, sensual, golden, ginormous, honest, merry, adorable, (mentally adds adjectives she can't recall for future editing) gifted Apollo. He turned out so different from what I'd anticipated. Yes, I love brooding, sexy, sarcastic bad boys. But heavens, this blonde perfection had me heels over head, deep in love with him, even though he was no bad boy like the Hades I earlier talked about. *fans self*
The female main lead, Pamela Gray, was great too. I really liked her. But instead of wasting time on describing each character for you, all I'm gonna say is, I loved the fun light blanket some scenes endowed, and the deep, heartbreaking mesh others did. The way the characters evolved, I couldn't help but be delighted. The book managed to animate reactions out of me, made me laugh, grumble, and in the end nearly teary too.. I'll be obnoxious and say that the best compliment I can offer is "I loved every moment I spent on it!", because you know what? I can't even begin to describe everything I felt into this review of mine. All words I use, are going to fall short of how I felt. So the comment above gotta suffice.
Note--> You might not like it as much as I did, though if you liked this review even the barest bit, I request you give it a try. You'll only come out with a good read, if not the one of the great reads I experienced. ;)
