Not even the god of gods could command my heart not to love… In Ancient Greece, the goddess Artemis was venerated as a maiden huntress, swift with her bow and arrows, and eternally chaste.

But could there be more to her story? Perhaps Lady Artemis had envisioned quite a different destiny than the one her father, Zeus, had chosen for her. What if she hadn’t merely pined after the giant huntsman, Orion, but had secretly partaken of a forbidden romance with him? From prolific fantasy writer C.K. Brooke comes an original divine novel, in which Artemis’s classic myths are retold as never before, in her own voice, as the young goddess sets the record straight and reveals the true account of her immortal life – and love.


Secrets of Artemis (Teen Goddess #1) Reviews

  • Holly (Holly Hearts Books)

    "Much that is believed about me is only partially true, or twisted in some way"I have always enjoyed reading Greek mythology and reading about the Gods and Goddesses who inhabit those myths and this is a story about Artemis, Goddess of the hunt. The story of Artemis is familiar to most readers who have sampled the Greek myths. She is usually portrayed as the goddess who is chastised. Unable to be joined with a man, to be pure for all ages. But this story has a different direction for us to explo [...]

  • Michele DeLuca

    The "Secrets of Artemis" is the story of the coming of age of the Greek goddess Artemis, told through the imaginative lens of fantasy writer C.K. Brooke. I wish I would have had something like this to read when I was in the 9th grade and trying to learn about Greek Mythology. I was never able to care much back then about the Greek gods and goddesses because their stories never touched my heart. That all changed with this book, when the 16-year-old Artemis, goddess of the hunt, came to life for m [...]

  • Mary Bernsen

    Once again, C.K. Brooke has impressed me with this incredible, breath-taking romance. I loved how each of the Greek Gods & Goddesses retained so much of their traditional myths, but had fresh, almost human qualities about them as well. Complex, well-developed characters made me their friend. When the unthinkable happened, I gasped. When tragedy struck, I mourned. And when it all came together for a happily ever after, I celebrated. The love story between Orion and Artemis was unique yet clas [...]

  • I.A. Cintron

    This is a nice recount of the myth of Lady Artemis, retelling her story from her point of view, the hardships she passed, how she fell in love with Orion and loved no other, Apollo was a jerk and deceiving her into killing her love was a dick move but then he repented, and she found a way to stay with her love and kept her status as a maiden goddess intact and that ending was so cute I had to punch my brother to feel manly again.

  • J.A. Cintron

    This was such a good retelling of the Artemis myth and for once Zeus is not a jerk but instead Apollo is like always. But back to our main goddess I loved this story because it was hilarious reading about something you already know about and have the protagonist literally dismantle it and tell you that what you know its pure lies. This book highly reminds me of Eva Pohler's Gatekeepers Bride where she retells the Hades and Persephone myth.

    Book ReviewTitle: Secrets of ArtemisAuthor: C. K. BrookeGenre: YA/Mythology/RomanceRating: *****Review: The opening prologue to this book was great, it was written from the perspective of Artemis, Goddess of the Hunt basically telling us that what is to follow is the true account of her life not the lies that have been spread by mankind. Artemis tells us of her birth and what a wonderous thing it was with Artemis herself born fully grown who helped her mother deliver her twin brother Apollo. Fro [...]

    IntriguingI could barely tear myself away! An amazing book! Time flew as I was reading. One of the best books I've ever read!

  • Raewynn

    This is the delightful story of Artemis, as seen from her perspective.You get all sorts of stories of the Gods and Goddesses but, this one (she thinks, Artemis that is) straightens out some of the stories and myths and puts her spin on things.A thoroughly enjoyable story from C.K.Brooke.

  • S.F. Hardy

    Motown ReviewThis goddess has a story to tell; and she wants to set the record straight by telling it herself--the other's, have it all wrong!When she was far too young to understand, Artemis's father, Zeus (god of the sky, lightening, thunder, law, order and justice) bestowed upon her several gifts--along with a curse.The story started off slow but soon propelled into the island of Crete intrigue. C.K. Brooke's storytelling captures those who are the least knowledgeable or interested in Greek M [...]

  • Kati

    A new take on the life of Artemis and different tales of the Greek Gods. A look into the Goddess of the Hunt told in first-person perspective. Artemis is a well known Greek Goddess and seeing her story told in the first person in a different perspective to that in the history books was refreshing. I love Greek Mythology so the concept of this book really spoke to me. The general plot of the book was engaging and flowed well. Artemis’ character read as if she were human and relatable to the rea [...]

  • Ctrl, Alt Books!

    Let me begin by saying that mythology has always been a genre I have held dear to my heart! When I first started reading the book, I thought it would be similar to those I have read before portraying the goddess Artemis. However, this book did not disappoint.Combining myth with a bit of the authors perspective and the feelings that were portrayed, this book had me entwined within its grasps. I fell in love with this book. I kept reading until the last page and that is when I realized I had to be [...]

  • Laura Reading

    A finely crafted combination of mythological fantasy, coming of age, discovering one's true nature and romance. The story begins with the birth of Artemis, daughter of Zeus, and her twin brother, Apollo, whose birth she attends and aides. While she is the ultimate daddy's girl, and seems to understand her calling from the very start of life, she also takes her time to define for herself how she is going to live. Suitable for high school age readers, this will be enjoyed by readers of all ages. T [...]

  • Gabby (What's Beyond Forks?)

    Full Review at: What's Beyond Forks?This story is told entirely from Artemis's point of view. It was a wonderful retelling of her entire life. The author took apart the myth and reassembled it as her own, and the writing was so well put together and thought out that at times, it made me forget what was unique to this story and what was from the original myth. It all just seemed to fit with the whole idea of Artemis.Secrets of Artemis by C.K. Brooke was kindly provided to me by YA Bound Book Tour [...]
