Recommends it for: adult and YA readers of contemporary fantasy
This is a great book for readers of contemporary dystopia, apocalyptic futures, quest adventures, Gaean earth magic, Spirit World stories, Greek mythology, and romance--there are two love stories in this 125,000 word novel. And the Greek goddess Artemis appears as a major character.If you have ever wondered what the Real World might be like if Magic could suddenly work while Science disappears as an explanation for life and survival, this is the book for you.
