Like all the books in the Goddess Girls series, Artemis the Brave can be read as a standalone and it is not necessary to have read the previous books.

I liked this one! So far I think this book and Athena's book are my favorites. Artemis was a very sweet character who made mistakes and learned from them. I loved her self-reflection and how she tested out new experiences but ultimately settled comfortably in her own skin. Her lessons were very sweet and, again, exp

Artemis The Brave
PLOT: Artemis, the Goddess Girl of the Hunt is about to get her first taste of the pains of love. I guess even immortals aren't immune to this. Artemis is shown excelling at Beast-ology class (Katniss Hunger Games style) which she slays in (pun intended). Along with her twin brother Apollo. But as the saying goes "Never let em see you sweat." Artemis while on the outside might look like she's got it together, but on the inside, she's shaking in her toga. Then she encounters anot

I'm in love with the collection and I'll do everything to read all of them and if you're into mythology you can't miss it.

Artemis has always been seen as the most courageous of her friends. They don't know though that she doesn't feel all that brave, and that she is downright scared at times, especially when she has to face some of the creatures in her Beast-ology class. When a new bo

This book was not so great, once again. There was definitely a lot of redeeming moments in the book, but largely it was not good. This book is supposed to be about Artemis learning to be brave, and in some ways it was. There's a lot of action with Artemis fighting beasts and learning to protect herself and her friends. This portion of the book was excellent, it taught a really great lesson. Being brave is

Set at the prestigious Mount Olympus Academy, Artemis along with her best friends Athena, Persephone, and Aphrodile, and her twin brother Apollo are there to learn to master their skills. When Orion, a new student to the academy enrolls, Artemis, who's usually the brave one is learning to deal with feelings she has when she's around Orion. Orion is a little too sure of himself and a little to selfish to really care about others around him. Artemis learns to over come the feelings of what it's li ...more

Artemis wasn't one of my favorite Goddesses growing up. She sounded so fierce and scary, plus I'm not really big on hunting. Like the other Goddess Girl books Holub and Williams give this a twist so that the problems Artemis faces--a first crush, living up to everyone's expectations and family matters--still remain true to the original myth, but have modern relatabilities.

The other Goddess Girls are around, helping Artemis and continuing their own stories. While its not necessary to have read t

Another great Goddess Girls Book.

I love this series. It's perfect for girls ages 8+. A great introduction to Greek mythology in a way that is entertaining and fun.

Artemis is Goddess of the Hunt and thinks she shouldn't have any fears while hunting, but she does. She's afraid to let anyone know she's not as brave as everyone thinks. Enter, stuck on himself, exchange student Orion, when Artemis finds hers

Okay so I was stuck sick in my parents bed and had none of my books near me. Being sick, I really was not up to getting up and getting one. Hence, I borrowed my father's kindle as it was on te table next to me. Most of the books were adventure stories, but mainly directed at adults. However, I found this book on there; quite possibly one my mom bought when I was younger. I was done with the book soon, but it was surprisingly good. Although it was not the most well-written book I've read, it gel ...more

Another wonderful book from authors Joan Holub and Suzanne Williams. What makes these books fun to read is that they cover every day issues that children may face in a lighthearted modern way. In this book Artemis is not feeling as brave as everyone thinks she is. She also finds a new boy in school who could just be her first crush, if he isn't to stuck on himself. A delightful uplifting book with some underlying messages about friendship and first crushes that don't come off preachy.
So, my daughter got me to read this one. We have a deal- she picks a book, I pick a book (we both read them). This was her 1st pick- and it was MUCH better than I thought it would be. Now my daughter is on a quest to get me to read all the Goddess Girl books- who knows, I just might. :) (Hey if it keeps her reading voraciously to read her favorites- sounds like a small price to pay to me).

This whole series is so cute. I think it's very creative to take these characters / gods and goddesses, who we all know about and give them life as tweens. And of course, they have appropriate messages that the kids come to themselves without any 'help' from adults. They are just fun, easy, quick reads that help me get into the mindset of that age group since I'd like to write stories for them one day too.

Yeah, Artemis is really brave . Love reading this series but Couldn't able to see mortals in MOA. Sweet and short story.

If we are reading this first time without knowing Greek mythology we will fix our mind for this characterization.

Man talk about action packed.This one hit my top 10 list and it came in 4. I really want to read Artemis the loyal so yeah i just put it in a kinda good place. BUT, i have to give it 5 stars. Really good joke at the end. I will let you see for yourself. You need to get this book right now

Read it because it fit one of the categories for my reading challenge. Cute, and a quick read. If I'd read it as a kid, I probably would have loved it and read my way voraciously through the rest of the series. Didn't do much for me at my age, though.

Got kiddo more interested in Greek mythology, but it is dripping with 13-year-old angst. Luckily positive messages about not accepting crap treatment from someone you really liked but then discovered was really a jerk to you.

Artemis the Brave is the fourth book in the series The Goddess Girls. This book is about the Goddess Artemis who is the bravest in the Mount Olympus Academy or MOA. She has two best friends who are Athena and Persephone. All three of these Goddess Girls face typical modern day life styles while facing the dangers of being a Goddesses. Artemis passes every class and gets high A's. The one subject that ruins this reputation is Beast-ology class. She has to face Minotaurs, Geryons, and scorpions wh ...more
This series is now dropped. The complete idiocy and stupidity of the characters, the lack of actual story, and some other things. I have enough other things I would rather read.

Let's start with this book. We have Artemis, a girl I was really looking forward to. She seemed awesome, sensible and wonderful... however, she is just as all the girls. She meets a guy and instantly becomes dumb as a rock. Seriously? How did she not notice he stole her arrows? I thought she needed practice, like every ti

Artemis is known and praised for her bravery in difficult times, but little do her friends and classmates know that she is sometimes just as scared as they are. Artemis is not regularly brave, she just tries to be brave. And in this book she is going to need it. She has to man up and try to defeat something she believes is a nightmare, and it's all her fault!
In this book there is someone new in mount Olympus academy. He's a mortal named Orion. People think that he is a god because his skin shi

Just to have it clear: This is a review on backsight!

Artemis the Brave is one of the good old goddess books I still remember. Perhaps the reason is that I love acting and this book deals with theatre. It's hard to tell, why theatre performances are running in the same universe, like the war between Greece and Troy, and what is used for the theatre plots, which isn't used for the gg world. We get the play of Eros and Psyche, by the way, and Aphrodite appears in a role. The myth of Eros and Psyche
