Two weeks ago, Callie Ingram was just another high school senior with her sights on a swimming scholarship. Now, she’s the resurrected leader of the Vikings, balancing her classes with learning mythological history—and sparring sessions with her gorgeous demigod boyfriend, Liam Hale.

When Zeus returns to collect the favor she owes him, Callie is tasked with uniting the warring Viking clans and leading them into battle against Gaia’s frost giants. If she fails, everything she risked her life for will be destroyed…and her best friend will die. But one teenage girl rallying all of the vengeful clans won’t be easy. And things only get more complicated when a new prophecy puts her future with Liam at risk. Now, Callie will not only have to win the battle, but she’ll have to take the fate of her heart into her own hands.

Goddess (Calypso, #2)Goddess by Julie Anne Lindsey

Callie just found out that the gods and goddesses really do exist and she is caught in the middle of a war. To top it off, Callie is believed to be the Viking leader reincarnated. Training as fast as she can, Callie who didn't even know Vikings still existed is facing a seriously uphill battle.

When frost giants threaten everyone she holds dear, Callie must do whatever she can to save her family and friends, even if they don't have much faith in her ability to pull them through.

Goddess is a very creative and original take on gods, goddesses, demigods and vikings all existing in the modern world.

I enjoyed the story but never felt that connection needed to completely pull me in. 3.5 Stars.

I received this ARC copy of Goddess from Kensington Books - Lyrical Press in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication October 13, 2015.
