This is one of the most unique books, as far as characters go, that I've read to date. Callisto is a shape shifting nymph who has given herself to Artemis, meaning she will never be with a man.
Kasin is shape shifting half witch/half Centaur. His forms are only human and centaur.
Centaurs and Nymphs are enemies warring with each other. Kasin saves Callisto from a near fatal silver tipped boar tusk. He nurses her back to health all the while thinking of how he can keep and claim her. If he takes her back to his camp his people will expect him to treat her like a slave. He cares for her and doesn't want her to be a slave, he wants her as his wife.
Callisto never felt anything for a man before, let alone a stranger who saved her life while in the forest. She knows she shouldn't trust this man believing he is a human slave to the Centaurs. She is completely unaware he is Centaur.
Love happens almost magically and they decide to run off to be together until his family comes for him. Kasin asks Callisto to wait for him until he returns in two days. After a week of waiting and he doesn't come back, Callisto returns to her Goddess duties. But she doesn't go alone, she's with child.
Fast forward 5 years later and they meet again on opposites sides of prison bars, both with secrets that can cause both of their deaths.
I greatly admire Ms. Heckert’s knowledge of Greek mythology and the way she weaves it into her fictional world along with the paranormal. Her characters are deeply drawn and engaging, and the plots are fast-paced and draw the reader in on page one.
But, as has been happening so much lately, there were editing issues that drove me nuts. When editors tell their authors not to use too many adverbs, they don’t mean the authors should substitute adjectives. Yet I see this happening over and over again. I even hear it in dialog on TV, and find myself yelling “LY!” at the screen, as I do to my Kindle. I yelled it at my Kindle throughout the entire Arcadia Trilogy. Please be sparing with your adverbs, but do NOT substitute adjectives for them. Use a stronger verb. But if you can’t find a stronger verb, go ahead and enhance it with an adverb. Use your “ly.”
Thanks for letting me rant. Aside from the adjective problem, The Arcadia Series was a good read. You might want to start with The Bear Goddess, then The Wolf Queen, and end with The Crow Maiden, but it’s not necessary.
