An interesting look into the education of gods and goddesses as well as their creations. The main character, Gardenia, plays a spoiled youngster to a tee. She is exhausting but I do realize she is exactly as this author wants her to be. Having her reach out to dragons for assistance opened up many questions for me, which in turn kept me reading. This book is entertaining and can be read in an afternoon.
Although this was repeated many times in the story, I did enjoy the concept of thirteen steps to creation, and that was because each story-teller of these thirteen easy steps put a different spin on the oft-repeated fable, using special effects with magic. (Although I was left scratching my head why the very essence of creating a planet gets only one step, but mermaids and centaurs each get their own step?)
Due to this very unique set-up, I am giving this four stars. I thought around the halfway point after the novelty of the goddess needing to learn the days of creation and finding thirteen teachers (by the end of the book we had covered only four of them!) dragged a little as it focused on her touch-and-go relationship between her and a guy, both teenagers. (It's stated that she's around thirty-three at the end of the book, but that's in goddess years, and they act like teenagers, so I'm guessing it's like dog years -- you divide the number of years by a certain factor to get a true age that's comparable to ours). I didn't see this relationship going anywhere really (although the fictional couple definitely think it does) and it distracted from the excitement of being all-omnipresent and the thrill of creating new life. I wasn't sure if this was supposed to be a romance book or a road trip story. It's good to cross genres, but the romance really took place in an awkward position in the story and dragged out what should have been a bang to the end of the story.
It's a very interesting story, and in terms of style and content unlike many other books I've read, so I think you'll enjoy it too. Despite the weighty topics of gods and all-powerful responsibilities, this feels like a young adult read, and sometimes there was great depth, sometimes there was frothy and inconsequential banter.
Gardenia was the goddess that befriended dragons. I loved her spunk and stubbornness! I enjoyed traveling with and her watching her learn and grow as a person and goddess. I loved watching her blossom in to woman hood and test the waters with love.
I really enjoyed Angelina’s twist on mythology and creation. She took the stories of old and created gods and goddesses that were almost human. Deity’s Soulmate read like one of those exciting soap operas that you just can’t stop watching! It had fun twists, passion, and creativity.
I think what I enjoyed the most was the fact that Gardenia went against everything she was forced to be and took fate in to her own hands. She tried to learn on her own terms and tried to be a good goddess, unbiased from the lies and prejudices her family fed her. And, in doing so, she befriended some incredible dragons, and found a new family. I’d rate it 3.5-4 stars and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for something fun and unique to read.
The story is told from the point of view of a young goddess, Gardenia. There are no demi-gods or gods sleeping with mortals in this version of Greek Mythology. Gods have to ask permission from Zeus, who consults the fates before permission is given for a child, and it's had with another god. Gardenia is the child of two gods.
Gardenia is a little immature at first because she is very young for a god. She has to learn the 7 days of creation, but since time moves differently for her, she learns them over 100 years from many teachers. She chooses to learn them from the dragons instead of her family, who she both dislikes and thinks dislikes her.
Her adventure goes from there as she learns parts of her destiny and grows up a little. The story is well written and flows well. Some of the repetition of how the 13 days of creation work maybe could have been skipped by the dragons teaching instead of having Gardenia repeat it almost word for word with 2-3 different dragons across several different chapters, but other than that the story was a good read.
Gardenia is visiting an amusement park on a universe created by Aphrodite. She sees a mystery man she feels an instant attraction to. She hitches a ride on a space ship to another planet while searching for dragons to teach her. While she's exploring relationships with boys, she's kissing one and hears a mysterious voice that this boy is not for her. There's some romance and mystery men in here for romance fans as well
