I'm trying desperately to find something nice to say for the author of Goddess of Spring , a book that I adored, but I cannot. This is just lazy, lazy writing.
You can't leave the Terrible. You can't leave the hero in whatever timewarp you invented and then reincarnate him as a different person within the last chapter of your book and expect the reader to be able to connect with him. Nope, sorry, it's a ridiculous Deus ex machina that does not work, since we just invested the previous 30 plus chapters learning about this character and caring about him not the new, hot modern man that looks uncannily like our long dead hero.
And not just any hero - Arthur Pendragon- the hero of all heroes! So disappointing. View all 3 comments. May 01, Gemmoi rated it did not like it. I really wanted to enjoy this book as I am a Goddess fiction fan, however I was very disappointed. This review may contain spoilers. Cons: The book was difficult to get into at the start as it kind of dragged. As a fantasy Romance tale targeted at a younger audience similar to HON, this heroine Isabel was too old.
Goddess of Legend, p.1
Isabels profession as a photographer had no relevance to the story The old English was a bit difficult on the eye and detracted from the story, although I guess it's there for I really wanted to enjoy this book as I am a Goddess fiction fan, however I was very disappointed. Isabels profession as a photographer had no relevance to the story The old English was a bit difficult on the eye and detracted from the story, although I guess it's there for authenticity The heroine uses too many pop culture references and cliches - no one talks that way The "one thousand for Alex" private jokes went on for too long as did the constant colloquialisms.
If she is that bright and admits to suddenly being able to speak old English then why did she have to use US slang. She seems to know about Richard Fremont but it is never explained how. When Isabel and Arthur are first intimate, she has an orgasm within seconds of him touching her. Every woman knows this is impossible.
Goddess Summoning Series
She is too much of a feminist and this detracts from the legend that is King Arthur, making him seem dense. Queen Gwen is a lived character in mythology, this tale diminished her reputation as it did Lancelot as a sniveling fool in love. The ending and ploy was stolen from so many back in time dream sequence movies - way too predictable. Mordred, Arthurs son has no relevance to the story and her giving him a beat down and earful then a sudden change in his attitude was very unbelievable. PROS Arthur when he is being hot, kind and caring. That is when Isabel is not emasculating him with her domineering urge to prove women are better than men.
Here's a tip PC Cast, women are not better or equal to men.
Goddess of Spring : Goddess Summoning
Women are different. This does not imply that women are not strong or that men are superior. They are equal in different ways. Quit trying to give women balls. View all 4 comments.

So here's something a little more in depth.
The writing was choppy at best. And everyone seemed to cotton on to Isabel's way of speaking like it wasn't ridiculous.
None of the characters had any meat to them outside of Mordred. Isabel was the epitome of a Mary Sue. She was perfect in every way, everyone enjoyed her company, everyone loved her. And okay, I'll Okay that is pages of my life that I will never get back. And okay, I'll accept silly things as dialogue Utterly fail. Case in point: The Nail Polish event. To make nail polish?

Corn starch wasn't even invented until the 19th century. Not to mention about a zillion other things that were just wrong. And I don't care that this is supposed to be "fantasy" or "fiction" King Arthur is a historical figure.

At least take the time to actually research the time period before you make an absolute mockery of it. As someone who enjoys British history, this book disgusted me. As someone who actually enjoys writing this book disgusted me. And don't get me started on the utterly contrived and stupid ending. Nine thumbs. Way DOWN.

To view it, click here. I've read most of the " Goddess Summoning " series and I always liked how light, funny and romantic they were. I loved the quirky and sometimes seriously corny humor, the strong yet sensible heroines, the though yet sensible heroes and the sappy love story. These books always made me laugh and feel good after reading them. I also liked how the author incorporated however liberally Greek and Celtic mythology; how ordinary women were transformed into goddesses but RATING: 1.
I also liked how the author incorporated however liberally Greek and Celtic mythology; how ordinary women were transformed into goddesses but remained very human. This was, for me still is, for the most part , a very well written 'time-travel' romance series. Goddess of Legend takes place in the mythical kingdom of Camelot, so I was immediately interested.
Unfortunately it seems that the author wasn't up to the task of writing about the famous King Arthur. This book was not The thing that most annoyed me about the book was She was suddenly thrown into the Middle Ages but she still acts as a 21st century woman?
