Deity’s Soulmate: The Goddess Training Trilogy Book 1 – 2nd Edition by Angelina Kerner is the story of a young goddess by the name of Gardenia, daughter of Athena. She spent her life as a sheltered little girl living with gods and goddesses who think a little too much of themselves. She wants something better from her life; she wants to do something else that will give her fulfillment. When a dare sends her to Earth to see the true face of humanity, she vows to make a better creation.
In fact, she goes on to form an entirely new galaxy; however, she made one big mistake: she did not get the go-ahead from Zeus. And Zeus – being Zeus – gave her a lesson which will take a century for Gardenia to complete. But she is not giving up this easily; she is ready to take on her charge and create a better galaxy that will have a better mankind. So she gave Zeus her own choice; she will find the dragons who have the knowledge to help her with Zeus’s lesson. Finding the dragons is not easy, especially since dragons and gods and goddesses don’t get along. Gardenia can even lose her life. What will she do when she is faced with such a big challenge? Can she do it?
I love mythology and novels such as Deity’s Soulmate always make me very happy and satisfied. I loved Gardenia, she was strong, resilient, and her determination made her get in touch with her humanity and humility. Her reaction to Ri was fantastic and very convincing; she didn’t fall head over heels for him, but she didn’t just stay back. She was curious and so was Ri. They had a chemistry that was fully explored by Angelina Kerner and that is what made this novel even more interesting. Very well-constructed, believable characters and story line.
