I am taking part in this years Mythology Challenge.
HERE for information.
My first mythology book this year (my goal is 10) is Destined by Jessie Harrell.
What an incredible book!
It is a retelling of the Psyche/Eros love story.
Jessie does an amazing job creating truly wonderful characters. At first, I did not like Eros but, I came to love him as the story progressed. His love for Psyche was true and complete. Mom Aphrodite is a bit too much to take, but even she ended up being a great character. Comic relief was provided by Hermes, his character was amusing and fun.
The star of the book is Psyche herself. She is a character you will just fall in love with! She starts as a somewhat spoiled young daughter but ends up as an immortal.
If you like Greek Mythology, and love a great story, do yourself a favor and read this book!
