Terrible. My intelligence as a reader is insulted, and I am so angry with the horrendous laziness of this book that I can barely think straight. The Goddess Summoning series, once terrific, is turned to absolute garbage in this book. It can't even redeem itself with passionate love scenes between the main characters. I'm trying desperately to find something nice to say for the author of Goddess of Spring, a book that I adored, but I cannot. This is just lazy, lazy writing. You can't leave the he ...more

I really wanted to enjoy this book as I am a Goddess fiction fan, however I was very disappointed. This review may contain spoilers.

The book was difficult to get into at the start as it kind of dragged.
As a fantasy Romance tale targeted at a younger audience similar to HON, this heroine Isabel was too old.
Isabels profession as a photographer had no relevance to the story
The old English was a bit difficult on the eye and detracted from the story, although I guess it's there for authenticit

Okay that is 309 pages of my life that I will never get back. This woman writes like a 17 year old girl.

I regret reading this book.

Okay... So here's something a little more in depth.

The writing was choppy at best. And everyone seemed to cotton on to Isabel's way of speaking like it wasn't ridiculous. None of the characters had any meat to them outside of Mordred. Isabel was the epitome of a Mary Sue. She was perfect in every way, everyone enjoyed her company, everyone loved her.

And okay, I'll ex

It was alright, I guess.

That's probably the worst thing anyone can say about a book. It wasn't good, it wasn't bad, it was meh.

Now, this came as a bit of a disappointment to me. The first book in the series was weird, but I was prepared, thanks to your lovely selves. I really enjoyed the rest of the series, and then came this one.

It was really confusing at the beginning, and I often had to read the page twice before I understood it. The writing was stilted and muddled, and don

Amazing book! I'm a great fan of the House of Night series written bij Pc Cast and her daughter, and this one is just as good!
It's about the king Arthur legend, but shed in a whole different light as Isobel, a modern age woman dies and is send back in time to the age of camelot bij the Lady of the Lake. There she needs to fall in love with Lancelot (to bring Gwen and Arthur back together) but fate takes a funny turn when she falls in love with Arthur in stead.

Isabel, back from spending time with the troops in Afghanistan, is trying to rediscover the beauty in the world. At the same time, yet not quite, the Water Goddess - also known as Vivianne - is looking for someone who can save Camelot and restore Merlin into her loving embrace. When Isabel's car goes off a bridge on her way back home, Vivianne brings her back to King Arthur's court with one mission: seduce Lancelot du Lac away from Queen Guinevere, thus restoring the balance. But Isabel - and Ar ...more

This was by far the worst of the Goddess Summoning books, which perhaps had something to do with the fact that Cast wrote this in conjunction with another writer. Not that Cast is necessarily a stellar writer, but her lack of attention to this story in light of her work on the House of Night series seems to be the key driver behind the poor storytelling in this one. The one thing that helps it is the humour in the second half, but that’s if you can get to it. The language is jarring, and somehow ...more

Goddess of Legend by P. C. Cast
Paranormal Romance –Dec. 7th, 2010
4 stars

Goddess of Legend is the 6th in P.C Cast's Goddess series and I hope not the last! This book centers around the King Arthur legend as the heroine Isabel is sent back in time to seduce Lancelot!

In this story the heroine, Isabel has a car accident but is saved by the Goddess of Water. The Goddess makes a deal with Isabel. If she can make King Arthur happy by seducing Lancelot from Queen Guinevere she can have her life back. I
This was my least favorite Goddess Summoning novel. Only the verbal humor in the latter half of the novel lifted this book from a 1 star "didn't like" to a 2 star "it was okay". The character development was spotty and inconsistent with many characters being nauseatingly perfect. The plot also seemed rather weak and the ending while very 'perfect' and romantic was unconvincing and *way* too convenient.

Some issues that, in my opinion should be major issues causing much angst and dissension, are a

I love this series, and have read the 5 previous Goddess summoning books. However, this one is a bit too similar to goddess of the sea, and became ultimately forgettable. Compared to the rest especially, this one is a bit of a let down. It's not awful or anything, still quality writing and a good read, but while the others in this series manage to maintain a completely individual plot and characters from each other, this one is too similar to goddess of the sea. It was almost as if this were a s ...more

Yes I said it again because frankly it bore repeating.
I am personally going to thank my Liberian for recommending this series to me.
This was one of my two favourite books I this series because I just love stories that have a connection to the middle ages. There’s just something about a knight you know.
Anyway this book is for mature readers and l love P.C Cast for them. The concept is totally amazing. Yes there are books were the person is from the middle ages or were the person goes bac
Awful, just...just awful.

I had to read this book for this library club that I'm doing and it is absolutely awful.

Are there any other words I could use to describe this?

(terrible, horrible, the epitome of evil, an insult to literature)

Isabel was so completely up herself! She was NOT charming, she was NOT funny, she was just irritating and irrationally impulsive.

I just...URGH! And the ending was so predictable that my 9 year old brother could have written it. Actually no, Joshua would have at leas

This is one of my all time favorites series and feel it took much to long for this newest book to finally come out. Once again I was transported and enchanted by the story woven by PC Cast wherein a present day woman is transported in the realm of mythological legends - this time to Camelot. A departure from her typical stories based on Greek mythology, but no less enjoyable. I so thoroughly enjoyed it I did not want it to end. A series recommended to all who love both great romance and mytholog ...more

Eine göttliche Zeitreise und eine gefährliche Begierde. Die Journalistin Isabel stürzt mit ihrem Auto von einer Brücke. Als sie von einer Wassergöttin gerettet wird, muss zum Dank zurück in der Zeit reisen. Auf Camelot soll sie den attraktiven Ritter Lancelot verführen, damit er aufhört, Königin Genoveva weiter den Hof zu machen. Nichts leichter als das denkt sie.

I really enjoyed the book the only reason i gave it 3 stars instead of more was because like other reviewers i was a bit disappointed in P.C Casts lack of research also the ending was a bit weird... like all the reincarnations having exactly the same names. Also Merlin's character was truly pathetic.. woe to me sort of stuff.


Quite a good, fun book to read when you don't want to take things to seriously.

I guess I spoke too soon when I said that I was sure this book was sure to be as good as the last 2 books I read from PC Cast. I did not like this book at all. I thought the characters were a little too forced and had no chemistry with each other. It was trying too hard to be funny when it wasn't.

I dislike that the heroine was already 43 years old. At that age, she should already be married and the least of her troubles should be looking for a mate! I also found it repugnant that she was lustin

This is the seventh book in the Goddess Summoning Series and I have got to say that unfortunately if wasn't as good as the others. This one tells the tale of Camelot with our heroine Isabel being transported back into the past and falling for King Arthur.

When I first started reading books by P C Cast, I loved them and couldn't get enough of them. However there is only so much repetition I can take!
I have grown tired of the constant middle aged woman being summoned by a goddess story. I am not someone who is against age but I don't find a forty something or other woman to be a capturing protagonist. And surely for an author who constantly gives details on how age makes you wiser and more experienced, it is a little ironic how she then transforme

Çok güzel başlayan bir seriye rezil bir son. Dedim ama kimseye dinletemedim. 1. ve 2. kitap gözümde tapılasıdır. 3.'nünde gideri vardır ama ondan sonra aklımdaki tek düşünce bir seri bu kadar rezil edilemez.

This is a retelling of the Arthurian legend that is full of laughter, action, and romance.
The beginning leans towards corny, so much so that I almost put it down. Bear with it and you’ll get a great story with strong female characters and lots of fun with your romance.

The plot, the characters and the story is irresistible. I love them. Can't wait to buy the other Goddess Summoning books. :)))
