I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review All opinions expressed are my own35 stars Wow What an excellent first novel this was an exciting and very well written story I haven’t read a lot of Greek mythology or retellings but I really enjoyed this take on common myths and legends that even a novice would be familiar with My favorite aspects of this were definitely in order Atalanta and Kahina While I did feel their voices were written fairly similarly and there were times when my wires got crossed with who I was reading I really enjoyed them as MCs Atalanta is a strong willed bad ass protagonist who managed to maintain that strength while also showing and feeling fear and anxiety I thought it was a very realistic depiction of someone facing Gods and monsters and I think it added a lot of depth to the story and her character She was easily my favorite part I really enjoyed the subtle under played romance between Atalanta and Kahina I thought it was sweet and charming and didn’t detract from the story or come into play at unrealistic times This loses it’s 5th start for me because while the writing was excellent throughout the novel the over attention to detail left parts of the book a little slow and sagging I also felt the “rules of magic” could’ve used a little fleshing out It read a little like Tammi didn’t think it need further explanation becauseGreek mythology soGods duh I wish we could’ve gotten a bit world magic building here to better understand this retelling versus knowing things about Greek mythology and having to fill it in ourselves Overall I really enjoyed this story and I’m really excited for this author I think it was generally a fast paced fun and enjoyable read that I would certainly suggest to anyone interested in Greek mythology and retellings

Aks the first rule in order to save the legendary huntress Atalanta To earn back Artemis’s favor Kahina must complete a dangerous task in the kingdom of Arkadia where the king’s daughter is revealed to be none other than Atalanta Still reeling from her disastrous uest and her father’s insistence on marriage Atalanta isn’t sure what to make of Kahina As her co. 325 Stars I thought this story started out with huge promise but fizzled out some in the second half It is a decent read I was just hoping to be wowed This is a YA fantasy Greek myth inspired wlw story I was a huge mythology fan growing up especially Greek I do remember hearing about Atlanta but for the life of me I could not remember her I had to take the authors word that while she took some liberties she tried to stay true to the character I do have to say this felt Greek myth inspired than a myth retelling as the world building didn’t feel ancient Greece to me I felt like I was in a generic fantasy world which was a bit disappointing There are two main characters this story follows Atlanta who is a bisexual warrior woman and Kahina a lesbian and huntress for the goddess Artemis While I did like both characters I never connected to either as much as I hopped I did feel closer to Kahina I think her feelings and motives are laid out for us Atlanta was tougher for me as her character seems to have a major shift after the first third of the book Anyway there is a light PG romance I do think the connection between the characters was obvious but I also feel the romance could have been much fleshed outOne of the biggest issues for me might have been expectations; loving Greek mythology this book was high on my to read list I thought the book started great An exciting hunt against a “monster” had my heart pumping We meet Artemis and I think this book is going to be awesome However the storyline switches to Atlanta and a new chapter in her life and things went downhill for me The storyline became very predictable and it lost its flare I do want to make clear I think the writing is good it was just the story choices and not really fleshing out all of the charactersIf you are a YA fantasy or mythology fan you might enjoy this Not the best wlw fantasy book of the year but it’s a slightly above average read If Tammi wrote another wlw story I would give her another read An copy was given to me for a honest review

Outrun the WindThe Huntresses of Artemis must obey two rules never disobey the goddess and never fall in love After being rescued from a harrowing life as an Oracle of Delphi Kahina is glad to be a part of the Hunt; living among a group of female warriors gives her a chance to reclaim her strength even while her prophetic powers linger But when a routine mission goes awry Kahina bre. Never ever forget to honor Artemis This Greek goddess relishes revenge With a fine tuned blood curdling cruelty One retaliation resulted in the creation of The Calydonian Boar In an either epic display of ignorance or a sick desire to taunt the deity the very King that caused her anger proceeds to order his son to select a hunting party to slay her beastDespite vehement opposition Prince Meleager includes Atalanta He knows she’s an asset as “the fastest runner he’d ever heard of and the most precise archer he’d ever dreamed of” but his comrades simply see a beautiful but by definition useless femaleUntil the moment the boar is felled And the men see Artemis in her righteous rage and flanked by her huntresses glaring at them over the corpse of her creationThen the hunters happily give Atalanta full and complete credit for the kill She has only one real option Atalanta runsFighting to make her own way uite literally Atalanta is followed by one of Artemis’ patronesses as her father frantically searches for her Kahina a natural huntress with hidden knowledge makes it to Atalanta’s home first and awaits her arrival It is when Atalanta and Kahina come together that the sparks really flyI’ve always been a fan of retold fairy tales so I was certainly psyched to check out mythology re imagined Ms Tammi manages stay true to themes; the lives of mere human beings are secondary to the uarrels among the gods and goddess while keeping current with uick witted cutting dialogue This is simply too good to keep to myself so I’ll be sending my copy to my favorite classroom library And I’ll be looking forward to from Ms TammiThis review was written by jv poore for Buried Under Books with huge thanks to North Star Editions for the Advance Review Copy
