    I tried, I really did I even picked it back up, after a few previous failures but by God, could she please stop talking about those fucking roses Seriously I felt like all I read about were those roses and how she grew them Ghh I did hear it gets better after the first half, but by then I just didn t care any Sadly a DNF for me.

    First Line Once upno a time, when men still believed gods and goddesses walked the earth, Hecate, Great Goddess of Night, was granted dominion over the crossroads of man I just keep enjoying Cast s Goddess Summoning series They are such a different type of romance I was particularly tickled reading this one because the hero is not a man, but a beast This story combines the ancient mythology of the goddess Hecate and the well known fairy tale of Beauty and the Beast The beauty, Mikki, is a First Line Once upno a time, when men still believed gods and goddesses walked the earth, Hecate, Great Goddess of Night, was granted dominion over the crossroads of man I just keep enjoying Cast s Goddess Summoning series They are such a different type of romance I was particularly tickled reading this one because the hero is not a man, but a beast This story combines the ancient mythology of the goddess Hecate and the well known fairy tale of Beauty and the Beast The beauty, Mikki, is a strong, beautiful, modern woman who is sucked in to the position of High Priestess for Hecate in the Realm of the Rose The beast is based on the myth of the minotaur He stands seven feet tall, is mostly covered in hair, has cloven hooves instead of feet, and horns on his head He is charged with guarding the realm The story begins with some pretty sexy dreams between the two, and things only get steamier once they meet in person Despite or perhaps because of the species difference, the romance works very well I enjoyed both characters very much and found their story to be both romantic and sensual I m starting to catch on to Cast s unique HEAs and I did guess how this one would end, but I loved it any way.Tone Sexy, Mystical, DramaticSetting Oklahoma, Tulsa, Realm of the RoseCharacters Minotaur, Beast, Nurse, Rose Gardener, Goddess, High Priestess, HandmaidensLanguage Steamy, Dramatic, DecisivePace SteadyOther Elements Mythology, Magic, Dreams, Ritual, Sacrafice, Fairy Tale, Four Elements, Roses

    No matter what, I will always be a fan of P.C.Cast I find her books to just always be vivid with life, imagination, creativity and mystery She writes always with this sense of romance within her pages, but not in a way that is cheesy or boring, but in a way that is both intriguing and refreshing She always gives her characters this huge sense of life to them that makes theminteresting to read, because she makes them come to life in the readers mind so they are not just worded descriptio No matter what, I will always be a fan of P.C.Cast I find her books to just always be vivid with life, imagination, creativity and mystery She writes always with this sense of romance within her pages, but not in a way that is cheesy or boring, but in a way that is both intriguing and refreshing She always gives her characters this huge sense of life to them that makes theminteresting to read, because she makes them come to life in the readers mind so they are not just worded descriptions on pages, but actual figures What I liked about this particular novel though was the fact that she made beauty and the beast into a mythological version She shared the same moral in that it should not matter about the outter appearance, but the inner one instead.In many ways, yes, they did fall in love far to quickly and soon, but at the same time, it was down with such a careful tone to it that it was not overwhelming or overly cliche I suppose in many senses you did expect it to him happen, as I have yet to find one of P.C.Casts novel that does not contain a blooming romance of some sort I loved the link between person and roses though, I just kind of wished that this had also been advanced on because I feel there was a lotthat could have been done to make itinteresting and engaging Yet, what was provided was well done Not only did the novel meet the tale of beauty and the beast but it also linked up with the story of the minnotor, which really gave it this huge sense of a greek feeling, which of course is where all the goddess stories came from This therefore just seemed to make it appearrealistic because it was almost as if the author had purposely put in this sort of historical reference It does make you wonder though, are there really goddesses up there or out there who actually have different emotions and realms that they are in charge off A wonderful read, a wonderful series and a wonderful book I will forever be a faithful fan to p.c.cast and would name her as one of my favorite authors

    So, I m a complete Faery Tale freak and a big fan of Roses and Hecate and all I asked my Roommate beforehand what she thought, if I would be offended or pleased She gave me a noncommittal answer, and since it wasn t an outright pan, I read the book.I remember getting to a certain point and thinking, hrmm I think the author was a Dianic at one point as her rituals are very close even verbatim in some areas to the Dianic rituals I m used to Then again, the Dianics didn t originate those So, I m a complete Faery Tale freak and a big fan of Roses and Hecate and all I asked my Roommate beforehand what she thought, if I would be offended or pleased She gave me a noncommittal answer, and since it wasn t an outright pan, I read the book.I remember getting to a certain point and thinking, hrmm I think the author was a Dianic at one point as her rituals are very close even verbatim in some areas to the Dianic rituals I m used to Then again, the Dianics didn t originate those rituals and probably ripped them off from the dreaded anti Dianics, the Gardnerians It s surprising how, as much as they loathe each other, they are extremely similar Then again, maybe it s not a surprise.Anyway, as far as a treatise on Beauty and the Beast goes, I like it Good revisioning, even if I did sense a few references back to Robin McKinley s Beauty Hell, even Disney ripped her off it s a damned good book.However, in dealing with Hecate, theI thought on it, theI was disappointed Cast got the spirit of Her down alright, but there was one major issue Hecate is, like many Goddess, a protector of women and children, especially those who have been abused She is a Goddess of Justice and Her justice often is harsh While I have no doubts She would be okay with blood sacrifice from Her priestesses, I sincerely doubt She would ever ask ritual death from one, let alone yearly And it would most definitely not be done at the hands of a male, creature or not.Also, historically speaking, as Hecate is one of the oldest known Goddesses to be named, back in Her day, it was the males that got sacrificed This is well documented.So yeah, it fit with the story, and completely disregarded the actual spirit of the Goddess in question and the actual historical evidence of Goddess worship Probably not going in with my Faery Tale collection

    I ve had a love hate relationship with the Goddess series books Some of them have been wonderful and others have made me want to throw the book across the room This one fell somewhere in between I thought the story was intriguing but a lot of the characters left me cold and weren t really given a three dimensionsal life to make me want to explore why they might be giving off that cool indifference The heroine, Mikado, is a thrown into a world she loves where her job is to care for the rose I ve had a love hate relationship with the Goddess series books Some of them have been wonderful and others have made me want to throw the book across the room This one fell somewhere in between I thought the story was intriguing but a lot of the characters left me cold and weren t really given a three dimensionsal life to make me want to explore why they might be giving off that cool indifference The heroine, Mikado, is a thrown into a world she loves where her job is to care for the roses However, she s never told that her destiny is that caring for the roses means sacrificing her life at Beltane so that her blood will feed the roses Um hello, I can understand how they might balk at telling her in case she runs, but as their treasured Empousa I felt it was an extremely deceitful thing to do Mikado s infatuation and eventual love for Asterius the Guardian of the realm was charming except I felt that her ability to just fall for a half man half beast wasn t given enough merit There were hints that human men had never fulfilled her as she wanted apassionate kind of love A love that bordered on going wild with her passion but I felt it was almost a quick explanation so that the fact she loves the man beast here is supposed to not be deemed as unusual And it is Sure, Asterius has the soul and heart of a man and PC Cast cleverly never fully describes how much of him is beast We know he has horns, and we know his legs are covered with fur, and we know has hooves instead of feet but his face that of a man Is his chest Are his hands when they re not extending claws A sensitive subject for sure.I didn t hate this book but I felt there was a lot left unsaid or barely touched on that could have really given this storydepth.I ll continue with the series as they seem to be hit or miss, but this one fell short for me.Until next time, Lisa

    When I first picked up this book I was actually intrigued by concept of the story of having beauty being mixed with Greek mythology I really thought this book would be an interesting read but little did I know what a stuggle It would be to just finish it I was immensely disappointed by how the book turned out to be It was a really slow and boring read there were times were I would nod off to sleep while reading it I have read many other books by this same author and was not disappointed but When I first picked up this book I was actually intrigued by concept of the story of having beauty being mixed with Greek mythology I really thought this book would be an interesting read but little did I know what a stuggle It would be to just finish it I was immensely disappointed by how the book turned out to be It was a really slow and boring read there were times were I would nod off to sleep while reading it I have read many other books by this same author and was not disappointed but this book failed to live up to the expectations The author turned an innocent story of beauty and the beast into a horrible mess There were so many parts that felt really cliche and the characters were terribly underdeveloped I felt no connection to them whatsoever Some of the parts in the story were simply hard to imagine and too illogical and I get it that its a work of fiction but even still there needs to be a grain of logic so a story makes sense Not only that I grew sick of how much she talked about roses, diferent types of roses, colours, caring for roses blah blah blah etc All this talk of roses drove me insane I get it, roses play a vital role book but honestly it felt ridiculously repetitive and unnecessary at times
