Read full description of the books:
It's no secret I'm a little obsessed with Greek Mythology. Gods, demigods, legendary heroes, mythical beasts... I could spend the rest of my life reading myths and folktales. There are so many wonderful depressing stories in Greek Mythology. The transformation of Clytie into a sunflower, doomed to follow the sun’s daily movement across the sky (I love sunflowers *sigh*). Echo's unrequited love for Narcissus and Narcissus' love for himself (the dude fell in love with his own reflection. He is the ancient equivalent of Kanye West). The timeless romance between Cupid and Psyche (aka What to do if your mother-in-law hates you). Dionysus' chance encounter with Ariadne (aka How I survived after my douchebag boyfriend abandoned me on a deserted island). Hades and Persephone. My ultimate OTP. There's so many different people that I'm fascinated by. Antigone's bravery and perseverance. Athena's general awesomeness. Orpheus' undying love for his wife, Eurydice. The list goes on and on.
As much as I love Sophocles and Euripides, I have a not-so-secret passion for mythology romance novels. And no one writes them better than P.C. Cast. I know she gets a lot of hate. House of Night, I admit, is dreadful. But her Goddess Summoning series are a great hidden gem that not many people know about. While not my personal favorite book of the franchise, Goddess of the Sea is still a lot of fun. Why? Because of mermaids! Who doesn't love mermaids?
I had a lot of issues with her interpretation of the deities. She goes from the Greek names to the Roman names, and it's hella confusing. The books started to diverge from the original myths in major ways. For example- (view spoiler)[ she made Dionysus an unattractive, scheming perv and Artemis a man-eating, non virgin. (hide spoiler)] This didn't really spoil my enjoyment though, because- mermen! Dark, heroic and smexy mermen. Smexy, smexy mermen. Ok, I'll stop now.
Goddess Summoning is all about girl power. The message of this series is that women don't need a man to save them. Oh, and another thing- the books don't have the traditional or anticipated ending.
I higly recommend Goddess of Spring, Goddess of Light and Warrior Rising (Goddess of Troy). There's also Goddess of the Rose, Goddess of Love and Goddess of Legend, but they aren't my cup of tea.
