Well, let's say that was quite a disappointment. After the amazingness that was Hades and Persephone I was really looking forward to this story. The display of power Hera presented at the end of that book tasted wonderfully and I longed for more and somehow I was expecting this to be the story of how Hera took control of the Olympus, her own life and the life of all the Gods and demi-Gods who had suffered under Zeus' reign.

And in a way that was exactly the story this book tried to tell, but for

This was a huge step forward in Erin's prowess as a writer. She dug deeper, into much darker material, and not only pulled at my heartstrings but actually made Hera into a sympathetic, complex, and compelling character.

All of those portrayals with her as the villain against all the half-mortal sons born to Zeus? There are damn good reasons for her negative feelings that bring a whole new light to the idea of a mortal body trying to handle the blood/mind/powers of a god. Her relationships with he

I was a beta reader for this book and I absolutely loved it.

Kinsella is a very talented writer with a gift for taking stories that seem remote and unrelatable, and turning them into something touching and truly human.

Olympian Confessions: Hera in unconventional and highly welcome interpretation of the story of the Queen of Olympus. Too often Hera is portrayed as a jealous, vindictive character and I am so happy to see that Kinsella continues the trend she set in Hades & Persephone, taking well-k

I love this book. It's very unique, one that doesn't necessarily fit into the plot structures that most modern stories do. It felt more like I was reading a classic literary novel rather than something modern, as if I were reading a text written by Hera herself which was later translated into English.

It's a story about a strong woman/goddess who perseveres through horrible circumstances. Although Hera is physically strong, being a powerful immortal goddess, her true strength lies in the strength

I was lucky enough to have been a beta reader for this book! Hera is a wonderful and emotional story about female inner strength and empowerment, beautifully told through a well known myth and it's characters. What I love most about this book is the authors ability to realistically portray and bring attention to important issues that many women have faced, and still encounter in today's society Definitely recommend! :)

I liked this book better than I liked the previous installment, Hades and Persephone, but I felt like this story started to drag once it hit the part of the timeline that coincided. But one thing I did find interesting about this book was the humanizing of Hera, and how some of the myths that often portray her the worst are tailored to a different perspective here.

I wanted so badly to absolutely love this book. I love Hera so much, and it is a breath of fresh air to see her as the good guy for once. I've always thought of Zeus as a villain, but not as a three-year old in an adult body. I know this is her interpretation, so I don't want to gripe too much, but it was hard to see nuanced characters from the myth turned so black and white.

Hera is a boss

Trigger warnings for domestic abuse Zeus is an ass and the story does a wonderful job of integrating myths into a unique tale
