{Synopsis} – Well-researched and true to the original myths, each volume in the Goddess Girls series addresses contemporary issues, like friendships and relationships, from a classically accurate—and entertaining—perspective.
In Artemis the Brave, Artemis, goddess of the hunt, is always perceived as the bravest goddessgirl at Mount Olympus Academy. What her classmates and best friends don’t realize is that sometimes she isn’t as courageous as she looks. And when Orion—a foreign exchange student from Earth—enters the picture, she is even more nervous than usual! Can Artemis prove to her friends, and herself, that she can live up to her goddess name?

{My thoughts} – Artemis is the Goddess of the hunt. She and her brother Apollo are expert marksman. In the beginning of this book there is a birthday celebration for them and they get some custom made arrows from their friends. Also a new boy named Orion that is a mortal is introduced.

Orion is an interesting character that seems to hold Artemis’ attention. She finds him intriguing and wonderful and loves that he too has a dog. However, her first impression of him is poor because he has her dog watch his dog and then doesn’t bother to go and get the dog from her, instead makes her take the dog back to him. Then he goes for the lead in the school play and lies about his ability to do certain things that are required for the part that he wants.

Artemis is really into him and it blinds her ability to see that he isn’t a good person. He isn’t the right person for her, but if that’s the case, then what kind of person is Orion then?

Artemis is a brave Goddess Girl, after all she is the Goddess of the Hunt. However, like Orion she isn’t always as she appears on the outside either, but then what is she really like as well? I think you will want to read the book to find out.

I rally enjoyed reading this book and I am sure that any child that is interested in Greek Mythology will enjoy it as well. I also like that it is a retelling and retelling books are some of the best books I have had the pleasure to read in modern day!

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
