"The only excitement Shannon Parker expects while on summer vacation is a little shopping. But when an antique vase calls to her, she finds herself transported to Partholon, where she's treated like a goddess. A very temperamental goddess…Somehow Shannon has stepped into another's role as the Goddess Incarnate of Epona. And while there's an upside—what woman doesn't like lots of pampering?—it also comes with a ritual marriage to a centaur and threats against her new people. Oh, and everyone disliking her because they think she's her double.Somehow Shannon needs to figure out how to get back to Oklahoma without being killed, married to a horse or losing her mind…."
This book made me fall in love all over again with P.C. Cast and the way she writes! This is her first book in the Divine series which introduces us to Parthalon and her world. I love her fusion of mythology and magic she uses to create her Parthalon series. The way she writes is so relatable and intriguing that you don't want to put a single book of hers down. I become so enthralled in her world she creates that it all seems so real to me. And when you put the book down it's really quite sad to have to step back into mundane reality. This series also unlike her House Of Night Series (which don't get me wrong I love!) is more adult and will hit a note with an older audience as the main characters tend to be between their mid 20's through 30. The only thing bad I have to say is I want more .....more of Parthalon and the powerful women who make the books real for me! The suspense is killing me and I have a feeling I will be heading to Barnes & Noble tomorrow to purchase the rest of the set! If by chance you haven't read any of P.C. Cast's outstanding array of series you should definitely pick up this one to start off! And if your like me and skeptical at first and don't want to spend a lot of money on a book your not sure you'll like try Target I know they had this book for around $8! (: I am now hooked as I bet you will be too if you give this series a try!
