Secrets of Artemis by C.K. Brooke


Not even the god of gods could command my heart not to love…

In Ancient Greece, the goddess Artemis was venerated as a maiden huntress, swift with her bow and arrows, and eternally chaste. But could there be more to her story? Perhaps Lady Artemis had envisioned quite a different destiny than the one her father, Zeus, had chosen for her. What if she hadn’t merely pined after the giant huntsman, Orion, but had secretly partaken of a forbidden romance with him?

From prolific fantasy writer C.K. Brooke comes an original divine novel, in which Artemis’s classic myths are retold as never before, in her own voice, as the young goddess sets the record straight and reveals the true account of her immortal life – and love.

My Review:

“Much that is believed about me is only partially true, or twisted in some way”

I have always enjoyed reading Greek mythology and reading about the Gods and Goddesses who inhabit those myths and this is a story about Artemis, Goddess of the hunt. The story of Artemis is familiar to most readers who have sampled the Greek myths. She is usually portrayed as the goddess who is chastised. Unable to be joined with a man, to be pure for all ages. But this story has a different direction for us to explore. 😉

The story is written all the way from when she was born with her twin brother Apollo and we begin to learn how she acquires her power, her independence but what makes this book different than just a regular mythology book is that it’s told through Artemis’s voice herself and I love that!

I think this is a really well crafted tale for the book-ish reader who likes Greek mythology and it’s tales. A fun and charming story with a very strong female protagonist that you instantly fall inlove with. The writing is absolutely beautiful and you cannot put it down. C.K. Brooke is definitely a top author of mine that I think deserves way more credit.

Fool Moon by C.K. Brooke


Where blessings and curses collide, even the moon holds secrets of its own…

Seventeen-year-old Lorileen Masters is cursed. To undo the damage, she must travel all the way to the vindictive witch Rhiannyn’s lair and bargain for a reversal, even as demon shades stalk her. That is, until she’s rescued by a highwayman hunter on a golden horse. Archer Cross seems to possess a remarkable…if not mysterious…shielding effect against Lori’s shades, so much that she insists he chaperone her to the witch’s woods.

Neither expected the love of a lifetime; yet, that is exactly what Lori and Archer find in each other. But if Lori succeeds in reversing her curse, then she’ll retain no memory since its casting – including every moment with Archer. Will she abandon her quest to vanquish the darkness that haunts her, or can the heart’s true love prevail even apart from the mind’s memory?

My Review:

What I think I loved most about this book was how vivid the world was that C.K. Brooke created. With the actual descriptions of the world, and the likable characters. The author has an amazing way of writing that makes you feel like you are apart of the story.

The plot is very simple. A young girl with a curse travels to faraway lands with a male companion to confront the witch so she can negotiate with her to get her normal life back. The characters had a lot of personality and really wished the book was longer so we could learn more about them.

Overall it was an interesting page turner! A great simple story, sometimes a little creepy.
