I've been a fan of Cast's Goddess Summoning series for awhile, but they have slowly gone downhill. I think it started with Goddess of Love, which I found to be a disappointment and a bit of an eye roller, and has just gotten lower and lower. Goddess of Legend is by far the worst. The constant use of slang (seriously, what forty-something year old woman uses that much slang ALL the time??), the lack of details and character development, and just an overall rushed feeling. It honestly feels like Cast is just cranking out the books for quota purposes- the heart is completely missing. Goddess of the Rose and Goddess of Spring had so much detail and really just drew you in. You were able to spend awhile with the characters, getting into their lives and getting to know them. The stories and the romance were spot on and almost beautiful. Now I find myself frustrated with the characters, the repetitiveness of situations, and the constant use of the phrase (though varied) that "older woman are better because they're more experienced and mature".

Isabel is almost a one dimensional character whose sole purpose is to moon over Arthur's smile and crank out the slang. Guinevere is annoyingly moody. Arthur falls flat for me, as does the young Lancelot. What could have been interesting characters, Merlin and Viviene, are just kind of shoved in there, and never explored. By far the most puzzling and "huh" thing is the fact that Viviene summons Isabel to save Merlin, who has put himself into a magical sleep rather than face what looks like a crappy future because Arthur gets depressed about Guinevere and Lancelot. *spoiler alert* Isabel and Arthur fall for each other, Merlin wakes up, and THEN SHE LEAVES, fades away back to her own time after sacrificing herself. So what was the point?

I typically like to start off with reviews being as open as humanly possible given my taste can be somewhat different than those around me.

But I truly have to say that the BAD absolutely outweigh the GOOD in this newest P.C. Cast addition to the Goddess series. I won't give too much away for those looking to see if this is something up their alley but enough to let you know this book is one I would highly suggest you not read in its entirety but rather the synopsis on the item description page here at Amazon. Its that bad! I by no means am what you would call a fembot and I find at times in P.C's other books it can get a little girl-powery but nevertheless I have alway been endeared to those women, Shannon, Kat, Jackie and C.C. to name my favorites however in this book I find the feminist outlook simply too vomit-inducing!!!! Really after the first 100 times PC expresses the age old "women can do anything men can do" adage I find myself secretly wishing this was in fact the Medieval Times when women were silent wallflowers. Its exhausting picking through most of a book heavily ladened with girl-power ideals to get to characters that in truth be told were nowhere near being as fully developed as they could and should have been. I find myself gravitating towards Arthur and James and wishing the rest would join Merlin. I never felt a sense of any individuality from the characters but cooker cutters versions and that the book moved at a break neck pace over parts which were mildly entertaining and excruciatingly slow over those parts I'd rather be tortured than read.

AND the most annoying part of the book: ISABEL continues to speak like a illiterate high schooler and not the well to do photojournalist PC describes her as.

I've enjoyed the Goddess Summoning series. The characters are usually fun and charismatic and their interactions are a joy to read about.

But this book was a horrifying exception. Shame on whatever editor let this manuscript go to press. Where to begin...

It started out ok. But I soon felt like I was reading chat room dialogue between a bunch of teenagers. Maybe it's lingering influences from writing her House of Night series (although those are much better written than this book), but the mixture of slang and more "period" dialogue was jarring and ridiculous. And Vivianne's tendency to rhyme everything was just weird. Why does a Goddess feel the need to phrase everything like a badly written poem? Cast's other Goddesses were much more interesting and intelligent seeming.

The conflicts between Arthur and Isabel also bothered me. Cast's books don't really have those manufactured "we need a conflict so our characters can make up, so let's have them fight about something stupid that two sentences could have cleared up" kinds of conflicts. But this book has at least two of them.

I think in the hands of a previous version of Cast, Arthur and Isabel could have been really interesting people. There is definitely a spark between them and the setting is perfect for romance. I just can't believe that the author who wrote so many fun books produced this....I don't even know what to call it. Tragedy?

Hopefully this serves as a warning. If you're looking for a well-written, fun romance, don't buy this book. Look at her other ones. And if you're a first time Cast reader, avoid this book...her other ones are much better.
