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?

My Say:
The book is actually in my favourite list. I like it a lot. It's totally different and even if it has a little similarity with some other books, I still thinks the book tells magic interestingly. I never read anything about goddess before, well, I think so. What made it even more interesting is they can appear like any other cute animals, like cats and dogs! There's also something reincarnation that I found so cool about it which made me so happy about it. That being said, the plot is intriguing and very well-developed. I like all the characters especially Ellena and Hector. There was very few since I read a hero character named Hector, but it's cool. I enjoyed the time I read this. However, there are a few times I felt lost and to repeat reading the whole pages. I felt like I left out an important part, but I dont know what it is. However, I can forgive it because I like the story. Please give a chance reading this book and I think you too will feel the same.
