I just finished today, and while I enjoyed it, I don't think it's Casts best work. It ties into Goddess of Spring very well, which is pleasant, but it doesn't have the same feeling.

Pamela has freed herself of her clingy, control freak husband, and for the past 2 years she's been a workaholic trying to clear out her own life. She takes an interior design job for a well known Science Fiction writer, only to be brought to Vegas to reproduce a tacky version of the Forum, in Caesar's Palace. At the same time Zeus open a portal from Mount Olympus to Las Vegas, to allow his fellow immortals and nymphs a chance to see what he modern world is like. This provides ample opportunity for Artemis to try and jump start her brother Apollo, who's been in a rotten mood ever since he was spurned by Persephone, who turned out to be a mortal woman.

Things go awry when nymphs provide an invocation in the Forum of Caesar's Palace, and Pamela compltetes it unknowingly. Finding herself involved Artemis encourages her brother to woo Pamela to rid Artemis of her burden. Apollo beings his romance thinking as a god, but as the novel progresses, he becomes more human, and more substantial.

This novel differs from the previous Goddess of series, Pamela never inherits the body of a goddess, and in a twist, Artemis and Apollo find themselves bound to the moral world, living as mortals. That's a refreshing change, but as the rest of the novel follows the standard pattern of Cast's books, I found myself longing for the standard body switch.

I did enjoy the rich storyline, author E D Faust, or Eddie, added a lot to the story. As did Artemis, although she often stole the story away from Apollo.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Workaholic interior designer Pamela is on a business trip to Las Vegas. Reeling from an abusive marriage, she's hoping her heart isn't entirely dead yet. She accidentally weaves her desire for romance into a spell binding the goddess Artemis to her aid, and Artemis sends her brother Apollo to woo Pamela.

Apollo and Pamela fall in love, of course. I didn't think their relationship was developed as well as Lina and Hades' relationship in Goddess of Spring. It seemed more like Apollo and Pamela fell into bed a couple of times and then declared themselves soul mates. Besides, I can't see Apollo as a romantic hero. There is one point where Pamela muses about how Apollo isn't going to stifle her as her husband did. Hello? Burning Coronis to a crisp for cheating on him? Chasing Daphne till she had no choice but to turn into a tree? Punishing Cassandra for not wanting to sleep with him? He comes off as rather piggish in myth, and none of that is really dealt with except for a few offhand comments about how he's not the same guy anymore because his love for Pamela has changed him. In under a week? I doubt it. It's just, BANG! he's a nice guy now, without a single iota of his former personality resurfacing. At least Hades, for all his brooding darkness, always seemed in the stories to actually love his wife. And the angsty aspect of his personality was also a plot point in the novel, and an obstacle to his relationship with Lina. Here, Apollo is perfect beyond belief. I also can't really buy Artemis as a promiscuous blonde bombshell.

And the ending seemed wrong, too. Let's just say, for fear of spoilers, that the characters seemed a lot less interesting at the end, particularly Pamela.

I really liked this but....there is just something missing in this story that was there in "Goddess of Spring." I love Apollo, he's just so sweet and yummy. Artemis is delightfully bitchy, and I can even identify with Pamela's pain. But there is just something lacking and I can't put my finger on it. It seems that Cast herself realizes this near the end of the book and takes us on a roller coaster of emotions that would have been better paced throughout the book rather than right at the end. And I wound up with a ton of questions because the ending was so rushed. I feel like I've just eaten a chocolate-covered donught that appeared to be heaven on the outside, but was lacking in taste.

I'd give this a 3 & 1/2, but there isn't an option for that.

Zeus, father of the Gods has prepared a treat for his children. He has decided to open a portal into the modern world of Las Vegas for his children to play in and enjoy on the weekends, much to the dismay of his child Bacchus who has ruled that particular realm single-handedly for the past few eons.

Artemis, Goddess of The Hunt and Moon talks her brother Apollo into a weekend of fun in Las Vegas and together the twins of night and day head out to wreak havoc on Sin City. Bacchus however, still angry at the disrespect the other Gods and Goddess are showing his realm invokes an ancient ritual that unfortunately falls on Pamela...

Pamela, a modern mortal woman who is visiting Las Vegas on a work trip suddenly finds herself bound Artemis after accidentally spilling wine, pricking her finger, and whispering her secret wish: for romance to come back into her life. Strangely drawn to her Apollo soon finds himself falling in love with Pamela and must somehow face the fact that he cannot pretend to be a mortal forever. He must tell her the truth and accept her decision; after all he could never be a soul mate with a mortal...right?

Despite the seemingly cheesy theme, "The Goddess of Light" was exceptionally good! I was more than pleasantly surprised. I've always been a P.C. Cast fan, but after reading "Goddess of the Sea," I didn't have high hopes for "Goddess of Light." Boy was I wrong!

While "Goddess of Light" had the same sort of fantastical and seemingly crazy mystical theme that "Goddess of the Sea" had, it was less...cartoonish? For lack of a better word? The characters had more depth to them than in Cast's first book in the series and I definitely related with Pamela more than the characters in "Goddess of the Sea.
