Review: Artemis the Brave

Set at the prestigious Mount Olympus Academy, Artemis along with her best friends Athena, Persephone, and Aphrodile, and her twin brother Apollo are there to learn to master their skills. When Orion, a new student to the academy enrolls, Artemis, who's usually the brave one is learning to deal with feelings she has when she's around Orion. Orion is a little too sure of himself and a little to selfish to really care about others around him. Artemis learns to over come the feelings of what it's like when your first crush doesn't like you the way you like them and the importance of being a true friend.
The authors have done an amazing job with this unique twist on Greek mythology with the Goddess Girl's series. This is a series for young readers and for those of us who feel young, they are relatable and fun to read. This is a wonderful series for kids ages 8 and up. The characters are marvelous, even though they are immortal and have powers, they are still easy for girls to understand and relate too, as they deal with much of the same things they are dealing with.

I liked that the story has a little bit of everything. I got to see the girls together in action, as they learn to master their skills with some of the mythological beasts. I liked seeing Artemis and her brother Apollo at their archery competition, and while also seeing the girls dealing with normal girl stuff like crushes and friendship.

I highly recommend picking up this series. They are cute and light to read. They would be good to read to your little girls at bedtime.


  1. That sounds like such a cute series, and I'm pretty interested in mythology. Cool.

  2. Hi Ashley!

    I'm dropping in to share some love. :o) And some thanks to you for your lovely review of Artemis the Brave. I know you mostly focus on YA, so Suzanne and I are extra-appreciative that you took time to read and review our book. I'm glad you found the book relatable and the characters, marvelous. Woo hoo! Doing a happy dance. Books 5 and 6 are set to release in 2011, and we're working on 7 and 8.
