Cali (Cali) - reviewed Almost a Goddess (Goddess, Bk 1) on
- I was really interested in this book/series mainly because of the mythology as I am mostly a Historical Romance reader. I have only recently become more interested in some of the 'vampire, paranormal, fantasy' type books i.e. Sherilynn Kenyon, Stephanie Rowe...
- I think it could have had so much more with a few situations, some humor, or 'tests' from the Gods. All things which I kept thinking I'd read about but never did. Kenyon & Rowe provide much better. Overall, this was just an OK read for me, thus 3 1/2 stars.
