By AF FirebirdThe Reluctant Goddess

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?

I love reading about metaphysics and I truly enjoy fantasy fiction. This book combines the two in a wonderful way. I got sucked into the book straight away and enjoyed the varied characters and twists and turns of the story. Dogs that are guides, angels that do not follow the rules, Goddesses that think they are simply 48-year old women with high expectations and physical assets moving south. Nothing is quite as it seems in this book. Some of the scenes really made me laugh. To be able to make one think deeply of life at one moment and giggle at the next makes an author into an alchemist of sorts. I definitely recommend this book as it will inspire you to look at life from a different perspective and at the same time keep a sense of fun.
