Great Read!!!!!

As always, P. C. Cast is a fantastic writer. I have read all of this series so far, and will continue to read the others. She combines the farfetched with the current, the fantasy with the real, and does it in a very fascinating way. I will buy more books by her.


This is new way to translate Greek Myth. Achille's and his famous heel... But, no! In this book, Venus says that is a myth... lol. Anyone who enjoys the goddesses and gods of Greek Myth should indulge in this series. Translated in a new and can't-put-it-down-it's-so-good type of way, P. C. Cast, creates the world of mortals mixed with the world of ancient warriors and love. It's romantic, sensual, and oh-so inviting. And here this: NOTHING LIKE TWILIGHT! I've heard a lot of ppl say that this series is paranormal romance so it must be like Twilight. There are no vampires. There is no, "I could kill you. We can't be together." The woman is the independent one. She loves him and tames him and kills the berserker... Okay. If you enjoyed Twilight. I seriously recommend this, but it's not all that alike. This is better.

P.C. Cast does it again

Every time I read the description of a P.C. Cast book, I don't think it is going to be very good (but I still get them). Every time I am proved wrong, because her books are so entertaining and well written. Her writing style just seems to draw you right into the story. She paints such a clear picture. Very captivating.

P.C. Cast Still Hasn't Let me Down!

I started reading WARRIOR RISING by P.C. Cast recently, simply because she is an amazing author that has never done me wrong. I've read everything else she's ever written, and I've loved each novel. This novel has turned out to be so much more than I ever expected. The story is about Kat, who dies in a tragic car accident in the modern world. As a psychologist, she's used to dealing with nutcases all day, but this may be her biggest assignment yet. Venus, Hera, and Athena are all tired of the Trojan war and hate the fact that they're blamed for starting the whole thing. They decide to take it all into their own hands and end it themselves. But first, they have to get rid of Achilles. With a little movement of souls, Kat ends up in the middle of the Trojan war, acting as war-bride to Achilles. Mix in a little magic, a lot a mayhem, and you have an amazing book. I think I took SO much more out of this book, simply because I'd recently read The Iliad. I fell absolutely and completely in love with Achilles. I rooted for Kat (even wished I was in her place a few times) and loved the secondary romance of Jacky and Patroklos. Let's just say: P.C. Cast is still on my automatic-buy list (and I doubt she could get kicked off if she tried!).

Excellent romantic fantasy

Hera, Venus and Athena are tired of masculinity stupidity as the Trojan War is over thirteen years old. The three goddesses conclude that the fighting is all about male penises, the prime organ in man's superego. Worse the female trio is sick to hear these dumb braggarts claim the goddesses or Helen started the combat and that they fight in their honor. The poster boy for inane masculine pretentiousness is Achilles. So the goddesses decide the only way to end the war is to get Achilles to stop fighting; the only way to get him to stop fighting is occupy his penis with a woman who will keep the blood rage from turning him into a berserker warrior. Venus visits modern day Tulsa to see if she can obtain the services of a specialist sex siren. When their car crashes, psychologist Dr. Kat and her best friend trauma nurse die. Venus brings the pair back to the Trojan War to entice those brutes Achilles and Patroclus with a lifetime of making love not war. Only this author could cast a modern day romance in an ancient Greek mythos and make it seem real and fun. With a nod to the Trojan Horse tale and Lysistrata, P.C. Cast provides a strong Goddess tale starring spirited intelligent twenty-first century women battling the invincible Achilles (whose heel proves not to be his vulnerable body part) and his best buddy in a gender war that supersedes the Trojan War.
