{eARC Minute Review} Goddess (Calypso #2) by Julie Anne Lindsey

Goddess (Calypso, #2)
Two weeks ago, Callie Ingram was just another high school senior with her sights on a swimming scholarship. Now, she’s the resurrected leader of the Vikings, balancing her classes with learning mythological history—and sparring sessions with her gorgeous demigod boyfriend, Liam Hale.

When Zeus returns to collect the favor she owes him, Callie is tasked with uniting the warring Viking clans and leading them into battle against Gaia’s frost giants. If she fails, everything she risked her life for will be destroyed…and her best friend will die. But one teenage girl rallying all of the vengeful clans won’t be easy. And things only get more complicated when a new prophecy puts her future with Liam at risk. Now, Callie will not only have to win the battle, but she’ll have to take the fate of her heart into her own hands.

{Rating} 3/5 - I liked it!


A lot happened to Callie at the end of Prophecy, changing her life in every way and Callie is struggling with those changes, physical and emotional. On top of that she's struggling with her self-confidence in the face of all that's on her shoulders. She's also trying to keep her two lives separate. Things with Liam aren't helping, he's keeping secrets. I wish she'd been stronger with what she'd accept; there's loving and forgiving someone and then there's being a doormat. I did like her evolution throughout the story, watching her strength and determination.

There are a few twists that keep things interesting, a good dose of action and memorable characters. If you're looking for an exciting, well written and interesting take on mythology check out the Calypso series.
