Oh. My. God(dess). WOW!

This was a fun adventure. It isn't a YA rather the adventure is for a thirty something adult. It is reality meets mythology/fantasy. It is Now crashing into Celtic times. I mention vampires in my tags/shelves but they are really Formorians. They are bat-like humanoids that are just evil. And our heroine fights them to the death in her Goddess-incarnate form. But that is what I would expect from a former English teacher!

Got your attention? This is a great book and I can hardly wait to get back into the series.

I loved the characters and, yes, the romantic twists that occur.

Shannon Parker is a sassy, fun person to be around, even if she is only the character on the pages in a book. She knows her stuff and has a few flaws, might I say she could use a 12-step program for that wine problem? But when she becomes all she can be (what, did she join the army?) she is more than a force of nature!

There are times when a wife might say her husband is a horse's ass, but maybe one should watch what they say. Shannon's husband is all man when he isn't a centaur.

Ok, I need to stop. You must read the book. I don't want to spoil it any further. It is fun!

If you can't afford it, insist that the library carry it. It isn't loanable in Kindle form. Sorry.

S. Is this the first book in the series? Do you know the series order?


Darlene This is the first. There is a prequel quickie, Divine Beginnings, that helps you get to know the MC and worlds better. I would guess that the story would stand without the prequel, though.
So:
P.C. Cast

Divine Beginnings (Partholon, #0.5) by P.C. Cast

Divine By Mistake (Partholon, #1) by P.C. Cast

Divine By Choice (Partholon, #2) by P.C. Cast

Divine By Blood (Partholon, #3) by P.C. Cast

Elphame's Choice (Partholon, #4) by P.C. Cast

Brighid's Quest (Partholon, #5) by P.C. Cast

I found it difficult to figure out the order. Finally, I found all of P.C. Cast's series on the author's page.

I can hardly wait to get back to Cast's worlds!

S. Thanks! I'll get to it as soon as I can find them and then find the time. lol


Darlene Wish they were loanable. But I met them through an accidental borrow from the library. That edition happened to be the fourth. Very good and I can hardly wait to start the next book!
