Goddess of Troy
Goddesses Hera, Athena and Venus have had it up to here with the Trojan War. So much devastation - all because of male egos. The worst of the bunch is Achilles, the Greek champion whose powers have made him practically invincible. To stop him would be to end the war. But the only way to stop a man like Achilles is to distract him - with something f ...more
Achilles! Hector! Odysseus! Patroclus! Time travel! Scheming goddesses!
Have I captured your interest? This book is ridiculous. And I loved every second of it.
I wish I had my own TARDIS so I could time travel back to ancient Troy. For purely academic reasons of course. Not to seduce Achilles. Scout's honor!
I don’t know where to begin.
This book left me speechless.
I need inspiration because i cannot describe this book.
I freaking loved this book. It has to be the best in this series.
Someone give P.C Cast a medal because she deserves one.
This was pure genius.
Honestly speaking i hated the Trojan War because of how it turned out but this book made me love it.
I never put down this book from the minute i got it and actually got in trouble with my bio and chem teacher for not paying attent ...more

This book started a conflict between my heart and my brain. There is a part of me that really enjoyed it – mainly because it’s set during the Trojan War, a.k.a my favorite time in ancient Greek history, and because it’s basically a love story about Achilles a.k.a bae –, but there is also another – more rational – part that can definitely see how flawed it truly was. To be honest I think this is the perfect book to pick up if you’re into a quick, entertaining read with a fiery r ...more

The characters were real and likable and it was so different from the regular YA book where they both are teenagers at High school in some small town in America with a Mary Sue female protagonist and Hot, Mysterious and painfully boring guy as a love interest.
I found myself cheering Kat on which...more
I loved the contrast between the characters and I absolutely loved the bickering between Kat and Jacky.
I want one wounded and scarred Achilles for myself, despite being a warrior that is feared by all he is also just a guy that wants to be accepted and there are times we get a glimpse of his shy side. Utterly adorable!
One thing I didn't like is how Kat willingly handed the Trojans on a silver platte ...more
İn this book independent, fierce, smart Kate, who are 31 years gets sucked into a 18 year old body by 3 different godesses: Hera, Venus, Athena... She must stop Achilles from advancing the war. Achilles hard, sexyyy, sweet, innocent, wonderful man... ( İ think İ'm in ...more
My favorite line of the story: "Gentle reader, please understand that by ' ...more
it was also the first one that I had read and made me decide on reading all the others
I absolutely love jackie, her quirky and feisty nature was a breathe of fresh air, her reaction when they woke up in troy is the sole reason why I read the book from start to finish all over again
I like that PC uses strong female characters and that she doesnt make them young and inexperienced or anything like that, this is quite refreshing
Also, I like that she totally changes the war ...more
Ich fand das Buch zwar unterhaltsam, aber ich habe auch gemerkt, dass sich mein Lesegeschmack sehr gewandelt hat.
Die Geschichte selbst ist sehr dünn und einfach gehalten, aber der Humor hat einiges wieder aufgewogen und es gab wirklich ein paar klasse Sprüche. Auch der Schreibstil war ...more
Warrior Rising is the first book I have ever picked up by this author, but when I saw it available at my local library, I decided it was time to finally pick this author up. I have had this author on my watchlist for quite some time. I am such a fan of mythology themed romances, and even though this book was a bit unconventional at times, it definitely sucked me instantly into the story.
The story begins with three goddesses of Olympus-Athen ...more
The book is about the Trojan War and how to modern woman land there to end it. I always thought: I know how the War ended and so i thought it is going to be a end i already know. But(!!) i really was surprised!
This book is amazing and made me read more B ...more
I don't usually read romances. If you've read a few, you've read them all. There are exceptions and I'm happy to say this is one of them.
It's well crafted. Original and imaginative. P.C. Cast knows mythology because only a knowledgeable person could so thoroughly turn a well known legend on its' ear so completely without losing the equally educated reader.
the two heroines were sassy and insane, i loved Jacky i love the way that P.C can capture the humor of the black women in her books without it being stereotypical of even borderline racist, because i'm a black woman and i know that if i woke up tomorrow and my palm and the back of my hand were the same shade i would react in the same way.
i really loved how she puts her own spin on myths.
i am a fan
The plan the three goddesses came up with was kind of crazy, but I admire their ingenuity. I also absolutely loved Kat and Jackie. I love seeing strong, independent, modern woman going back into ancient times and kicking some ass. One of my favorite aspects ...more
to air a personal grievance, i can't stand when audiences apply modern ideals to ancient texts, theories, etc. it's unreasonable.
also, the goddesses within are represented as flighty and all too easily impressed by "mod ...more
The third time through and I still love it!
