I missed the gang from the Interim Goddess of Love series so much and I'm glad to have seen a bunch of them again. I love Apo, of course, and hope to see more of him. I want more from this universe. I really recommend the Interim Goddess of Love series for people who love mythology and diverse stories.

This should be read together with Interim Goddess of Love series or else you will feel like an outsider of some clique. I like the illustration of Raine Sarmiento.

When I first downloaded a free copy of this short story, I was expecting a light, frothy read that I wouldn't have to think about too much.

I was so wrong.

Mina V. Esguerra is an expert at crafting complex characters. You immediately understand what type of person Maya is like from the way she thinks about the other people or deities around her.

Yes, Gifted Little Creatures is a short story, but every sentence is bursting with Maya's personality. She's not very likable, but you want to keep reading

This is a lovely companion to Mina Esguerra's YA trilogy, Interim Goddess of Love. Mina made Philippine mythology characters interesting and easy to relate to by making them inhabit teenage, mortal form. And the illustrations are absolutely beautiful, making my reading experience enjoyable. You might have a hard time catching up if you haven't read the Interim Goddess of Love trilogy, but this will make you crave to read it!

I do feel bad for not liking this book, I just found it to be so confusing!

I didn't have a clue what was going on. I didn't really enjoy the writing.

However I did really like the illustrations (Although I did think there was going to be more of them) The drawings were actually the only reason I didn't rate it one star.

I don't think I would recommend this book to anyone - unless you really like elemental gods.....but even then, I really didn't think it was good.
this was a cute short story with beautiful illustrations. i am loving this series and the mythology

i think this pretty much fills in the history and background of The Goddess of Love and her 'family' that wasn't much clearly explained in IGOL (at least in book 1 and 2). i actually found myself hoping for additional few read!

Nothing much to see here. Just a day in the life of the Moon Goddess.
