I normally adore novels about the Greek Gods and their ploys in the lives of mortals. Priestess is a novel similar to this. Sadly, I found it lacking. The story has a lot of promise, but is sadly disjointed and uninformative. I am aware there is a book prior to this one, and it could be that both books together make a lot more sense. Azalee is a strong character, but she comes across as weak. I am sorry, but I could not finish this book.
Trapped on Mykonos, Azalee makes a deal with a god of death: find him Desdemona, and he’ll bring Joel, the love of her life, back to her. But her attempts are thwarted at every turn by an infuriating High Priestess, who touts great political pull and seems to have sinister plans for Azalee’s future.
Shipped back to Illyria, Joel is imprisoned beneath the Kurios’s quarters, where he’s unwittingly reunited with his dangerous elder brother, Deimos. Joel wants to rescue Azalee, but Deimos is determined to prove that Joel must break his pacifism to do it.
Though on opposite ends of Greece, Azalee and Joel’s decisions continue to twine across the threads of fate. Will fate bring them together, or are they destined to remain apart?
