Artemis' disdain for marriage, the protectiveness she feels toward her mother Leto and her inclination toward swift retribution can all be traced to her mother's persecution while waiting to give birth to her twins (courtesy of Hera, of course). Both Artemis and Apollo are marked by their mother's ordeal, but Artemis, having seen her mother labor with Apollo, may be affected more deeply. Although she can't see into the future as Apollo can, she can see everything that's happening in the present. It's therefore fitting that she uses the charm she inherited from her father Zeus against him when she binds him to a promise that she will be free and wild and will never have to marry or have children, thereby avoiding any of the dangers her mother encountered.
I was surprised by how "deep" the volume got, but it's stayed with me a little longer than most of the other installments of this series. Kudos again for his vibrant illustrations--yes, that's exactly what Orion should look like--and he even managed to make me laugh out loud with the "mythological-creature factoid lightning round" in the notes.
Recommended for fans of Greek mythology who like their stories profound but also with a wink.
