DNF Skin of a Goddess at 36%
Skin of a Goddess is book one in the Goddess Ascension series by Victoria C. Johnson. It’s a paranormal romance featuring all kinds of shapeshifters, mythology, gods and goddesses.
I love dragon shifters and I love mythology, so you would think this title would be right up my ally. Also that cover. Yummy! Both the cover and blurb made this sound like a read I would enjoy, so I picked it up to try.
Unfortunately; this book didn’t capture me as I had hoped. The author writes the story in Hunter and Peitho’s POV’s. I like POV’s, but couldn’t connect to the characters, they had no depth and where not memorable to me. The author also does a lot of describing what her characters are wearing and how they look, but not much on building the world. By the time I DNF’d this title I had no idea what the book was about. I was also wondering why in the world would the gods be interested in attending a conference that the supernatural creatures of earth where having. The whole conference thing was just odd to me. I couldn’t get into the supernaturals having a conference nor could I get why they would do such human mundane actives at a conference; like horseback riding, trail hiking, etc.
Just to many odd things and no connection to the characters had me putting this book down.
What I Did Like
I liked the goddesses introduced. They are all minor goddesses and we don’t get to see them often in stories or playing main roles. I also found some of the lines humors, but not enough to pull me in.
Skin of a Goddess was not the book for me. If the blurb intrigues you, I urge you to give it a shot. Just because it did not work for me does not mean it won’t for you.
