Like all the books in the Goddess Girls series, Artemis the Brave can be read as a standalone and it is not necessary to have read the previous books.

I liked this one! So far I think this book and Athena's book are my favorites. Artemis was a very sweet character who made mistakes and learned from them. I loved her self-reflection and how she tested out new experiences but ultimately settled comfortably in her own skin. Her lessons were very sweet and, again, exp
Okay so I was stuck sick in my parents bed and had none of my books near me. Being sick, I really was not up to getting up and getting one. Hence, I borrowed my father's kindle as it was on te table next to me. Most of the books were adventure stories, but mainly directed at adults. However, I found this book on there; quite possibly one my mom bought when I was younger. I was done with the book soon, but it was surprisingly good. Although it was not the most well-written book I've read, it gel ...more

Set at the prestigious Mount Olympus Academy, Artemis along with her best friends Athena, Persephone, and Aphrodile, and her twin brother Apollo are there to learn to master their skills. When Orion, a new student to the academy enrolls, Artemis, who's usually the brave one is learning to deal with feelings she has when she's around Orion. Orion is a little too sure of himself and a little to selfish to really care about others around him. Artemis learns to over come the feelings of what it's li ...more
Artemis wasn't one of my favorite Goddesses growing up. She sounded so fierce and scary, plus I'm not really big on hunting. Like the other Goddess Girl books Holub and Williams give this a twist so that the problems Artemis faces--a first crush, living up to everyone's expectations and family matters--still remain true to the original myth, but have modern relatabilities.

The other Goddess Girls are around, helping Artemis and continuing their own stories. While its not necessary to have read t

Artemis has always been seen as the most courageous of her friends. They don't know though that she doesn't feel all that brave, and that she is downright scared at times, especially when she has to face some of the creatures in her Beast-ology class. When a new bo

Another great Goddess Girls Book.

I love this series. It's perfect for girls ages 8+. A great introduction to Greek mythology in a way that is entertaining and fun.

Artemis is Goddess of the Hunt and thinks she shouldn't have any fears while hunting, but she does. She's afraid to let anyone know she's not as brave as everyone thinks. Enter, stuck on himself, exchange student Orion, when Artemis finds hers
{My Thoughts} – Artemis is the Goddess of the hunt. She and her brother Apollo are expert marksman. In the beginning of this book there is a birthday celebration for them and they get some custom made arrows from their friends. Also a new boy named Orion that is a mortal is introduced.

Orion is an interesting character that seems to hold Artemis’ attention. She finds him intriguing and wonderful and loves that he too has a dog. However, her first impression of him is poor because he has her dog w
This series is now dropped. The complete idiocy and stupidity of the characters, the lack of actual story, and some other things. I have enough other things I would rather read.

Let's start with this book. We have Artemis, a girl I was really looking forward to. She seemed awesome, sensible and wonderful... however, she is just as all the girls. She meets a guy and instantly becomes dumb as a rock. Seriously? How did she not notice he stole her arrows? I thought she needed practice, like every ti

Summary: This is one book out of a serioes of Goddess girls. This particular book focuses on Artemis who has an inner struggle. Every one thinks of her as the bravest goddess, and she wonders if she can live up to every ones expectations. Artemis finds herself distracted from her friends, family, school wor
Another wonderful book from authors Joan Holub and Suzanne Williams. What makes these books fun to read is that they cover every day issues that children may face in a lighthearted modern way. In this book Artemis is not feeling as brave as everyone thinks she is. She also finds a new boy in school who could just be her first crush, if he isn't to stuck on himself. A delightful uplifting book with some underlying messages about friendship and first crushes that don't come off preachy.
So, my daughter got me to read this one. We have a deal- she picks a book, I pick a book (we both read them). This was her 1st pick- and it was MUCH better than I thought it would be. Now my daughter is on a quest to get me to read all the Goddess Girl books- who knows, I just might. :) (Hey if it keeps her reading voraciously to read her favorites- sounds like a small price to pay to me).

In this book, Artemis falls in love with Orion and then she falls out of it when Orion doesn't appreciate what she has done for him. Artemis realized that Orion was just using her for his own popularity. At the end, Orion steals Artemis's arrows and aces the archery contest. Orion secretly slips his old wooden arrows painted into Artemis's quiver. You have to admit that was pretty clever. Spray painting his old arrows with silver sparkly stuff. You could barely tell the difference. Artemis's arr ...more

This book was not so great, once again. There was definitely a lot of redeeming moments in the book, but largely it was not good. This book is supposed to be about Artemis learning to be brave, and in some ways it was. There's a lot of action with Artemis fighting beasts and learning to protect herself and her friends. This portion of the book was excellent, it taught a really great lesson. Being brave is
Synopsis: "Well-researched and true to the original myths, each volume in the Goddess Girls series addresses contemporary issues, like friendships and relationships, from a classically accurate—and entertaining—perspective.
In Artemis the Brave, Artemis, goddess of the hunt, is always perceived as the bravest goddessgirl at Mount Olympus Academy. What her classmates and best friends don’t realize is that sometimes she isn’t as courageous as she looks. And when Orion—a foreign exchange student fr

Artemis is one of the goddess girls that goes to the Mount Olympus Academy and is known for archery like her twin brother, Apollo. She loves her Beastology class and has never been interested in any boy…until she meets Orion, a new student. She doesn’t know how to act around him. She finds out that he’s interested in plays and has a dog. Artemis has three dogs so that’s an added bonus. Her friends quickly notice that she has feelings for him, but they think Orion has only feelings for himself.

At First Sight: Artemis is the first of her group of friends to turn 13 - along with her twin brother Apollo - and she's also the only one of them who has never had a crush, her life a happy mix of hanging out with her friends, practicing archery with her brother and playing with her dogs, even if she does struggle a little with her Bestiology exams, because her friends look up to her to lead them, since she's the brave one.

All of that changes when she meets transfer student Orion Starr, who is
Artemis the Brave is the fourth book in the series The Goddess Girls. This book is about the Goddess Artemis who is the bravest in the Mount Olympus Academy or MOA. She has two best friends who are Athena and Persephone. All three of these Goddess Girls face typical modern day life styles while facing the dangers of being a Goddesses. Artemis passes every class and gets high A's. The one subject that ruins this reputation is Beast-ology class. She has to face Minotaurs, Geryons, and scorpions wh ...more

Artemis is known and praised for her bravery in difficult times, but little do her friends and classmates know that she is sometimes just as scared as they are. Artemis is not regularly brave, she just tries to be brave. And in this book she is going to need it. She has to man up and try to defeat something she believes is a nightmare, and it's all her fault!
In this book there is someone new in mount Olympus academy. He's a mortal named Orion. People think that he is a god because his skin shi

Recommends it for: parents reading with their children
Our girls are really enjoying the Goddess Girls series by Joan Holub and Suzanne Williams and we are reading them as fast as we can get them. This was an interesting story with a good message, although it seems to be a bit long for the intended audience. Still we dug in and read a little bit each night until we finished (just in time, since we couldn't renew this book at our library - there are too many people with holds for it!)

I love that the Goddess Girls are strong and independent, but stil

Cute story with good morals and lead-by-examples for young children. In this installment, Artemis learns how not to get swept away by 'love' and to make sure that feelings are reciprocated. As well, as the title suggests, she learns about being brave. Definitely a good story for the target age (12-ish), most presumably young girls (as the stories center around their experiences).
I have to warn people who love Greek mythology there are some big inconsistencies between this and the original myths. For instance, Zeus is an adult and principal of the school while Hades and Poseidon are teenagers and students. All of the myths are adapted to fit the story and I think some are very clever. This one is cute and a little silly.

I would have given this a 3.5. I liked the book and it was a great way to introduce this Greek goddess as an actual character with thoughts , feelings, and personality. I think girls in grades 4 and up will like it. I could see some boys enjoying it too. I wish it didn't have the boy/ girl relationship spin but then again it is about the Greek Gods! All in all an interesting book. I will buy more in the series as I can see it being popular.
I was expecting big things for this book because I love the rest of the series and Artemis is like the coolest of the four Goddess Girls in my opinion. And boy, did it live up to my expectations! I just loved everythin' in this book. All I'm saying is, I hope there's more books on Artemis in the series because she's my favourite character, not just because of her personality, but because her storyline, situation and general life are really lovely to read about (for me, anyway). I guess what I'm ...more
Laura Ward
Unlike other mythological fiction, this series is very, very, very loosely based upon the Greek myths. Just another redundant high school "girl" novel attempting to masquerade as something closer to serious literature.
In this series, I like this book the most because it takes lots of research, time and effort to make this simple book.It is exactly what some of my friends have been experiencing at their school, and it retells a part of a normal college girl's life.

It could be better if the book was more thick, because I finished reading it in an hour or less.Also, the climax isn't that intriguing and it is only for one chapter, while the books I read is mostly involving the climax.

Although there are potential
Yay! Really like this one. A typical middle-grade book, Artemis The Brave - in my humble opinion - is really about what goes on in young teenagers' head and their little adventures at school. Adorable and funny :)
Molly thinks...

This book waas exciting and had lots of bravery in it. If you like magic, mythology with a twist, and adventure then you will like this book.
