Hera, by Julien Longo is a story about Hera, a girl who is coming of age. In a ritual initiation to become a huntress, ancient powers awaken in Hera and bring forth a situation that harms her best friend, Artemis. The events that take place after, lead Hera on a path to become the High Priestess of the Emerald Temple. Long held family secrets are learned, and many sacrifices are made.
This was a beautifully written story that intertwined Greek mythology with Atlantis lore. All the key players are present, and the storyline is original. There were some minor technical issues, but overall, well written. I truly enjoyed this read, and look forward to the next books in the series.
On a scale of 1-4, I give this book a 4. I really enjoyed it.
This book was published by Fire Raven Press.
