Phoebe, who recently discovered she’s a descendant of Nike (the goddess, not the shoe), is finding that supernatural powers come with a crazy learning curve. Her stepfather, headmaster of the Academy for descendants of the Greek gods, has enrolled her at Dynamotheos Development Camp—aka Goddess Boot Camp—with a bunch of ten-year-olds for the summer. Embarrassing as that is, hopefully it’ll help her gain control over her powers in time to pass the test of the gods, continue training hard enough to qualify for the Pythian Games, and enjoy her godly boyfriend, Griffin, all while avoiding the ultimate mistake of accidentally misusing powers.

It’s another fast-paced myth-inspired heroine’s quest that’s sure to bring out the goddess in anyone.

I picked this book up because I’m a sucker for a series

What I liked the Most? That for the most part Phoebe gets in touch with her inner Goddess & her “sister”

What I liked the Least? Never telling the reader what the actual trial was

Review: LOL – this book was truly a trip worth taking. Phoebe has so much on her plate – Attending Goddess Boot Camp because her powers are wacky, training for the Pythian Games with her boyfriend Griffin, while feeling like Griffin is cheating on her with her very own arch enemy Adara, while being taught by Adara & her evil step sister Stella, and all the time trying to figure out why her dad was smoted so she it doesn’t happen to her.

This is a fast paced read that will have you hooked.

Best Quote:” I. Am. A. Goddess. An honest-to-goodness goddess. With superpowers and everything.” First actual lines in the book & I loved them – I want this tattooed on my uhhh wrist.
