Blog Tour: The Reluctant Goddess b y A.F. Firebird

Metaphysical Fiction
Date Published: March 2012

Ellena Ripley is a bookshop owner from a rural town in the south of England - or so she thinks. But lately, she has a growing sense that life is not as it seems. At night, she dreams of a serene man who appears to be trying to tell her something; In the day, she can't shake a feeling of expectation. But of what?
 Meanwhile Hector, servant of LIFE and the man from Ellena's dreams, has a dilemma. How do you tell someone they are a goddess? His previous attempts have met with disaster so he must be cautious, particularly when his new trainee, Boudica, formerly Queen of the Iceni tries to help. The question is can they succeed before it is too late? 

My Review:
This book is very different than what I was expecting. There is a lot of Mythology and even Religious aspects to it. While I really enjoyed the characters and even the mystery of the story, it felt almost rushed. Not that the story was short, but that it was in overdrive at times. Sometimes I just wanted the plot to pause to take a breath.

I think this is an interesting mix of several different genre's and the author does manage to meld them well.

A. F. Firebird

A.F. Firebird is the alter ego of a sociologist/psychologist turned web developer from the UK. While A.F. Firebird has worked in several fields her primary focus is the exploration of six virtues: appreciation, forgiveness, compassion, humility, understanding and valour. Her first novel, The Reluctant Goddess, numerous short stories and children's books, all investigate aspects of these virtues.
