I was surprised by this book; in a good way. At first I was slightly confused and had already decided that this was going to be an OK read, but as the story progressed I found myself enjoying the story with its magic, deceit and intrigue. As a lover of mythology I instantly appreciated how the author weaved together Norse mythology with Greek and Roman and produced an original and enjoyable tale. Not knowing much about Norse mythology myself, I wish that there had been a little more information at the beginning to introduce me to the ins and outs of the myths but the story has definitely piqued my interest in the subject. The story lacked a solid plot in my opinion, anticipation and the shock factor despite its originality but more than made up for this with its well crafted world and setting and strong characterisation.

The author does an excellent job of depicting Diana, the Roman goddess of nature, childbirth, the hunt and the moon who was also known as Hecate and Artemis in Greek mythology, in this book despite my dislike of her at the beginning. A witch of great power, her runes transports her to a Norse meadow, where she soon learns that she is not wanted. She soon comes to learn that she is to play a vital plot in trying to save the Norse and the whole world from the black-hearted, evil witch Heid. She frustrated me with her cocky attitude, impulsiveness and quick temper but redeemed herself with her caring side and her eagerness to assist those in need of her help. She is in no way a damsel in distress and I admired her strong, independent and feisty attitude but she also irritated me with her arrogance and sometimes superior attitude.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent fantasy where gods, goddesses and magic abound! 9 Sept. 2014
By Renee Rearden - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
The stars have shined since the dawn of time, their existence spawning stories of gods and goddesses. Who better to protect humanity than beings with knowledge and power far beyond our own?

When the universal balance is threatened, Diana (goddess of the hunt and goddess of all magic) is sent by her runes to help the Norse gods protect the world from a burgeoning evil strong enough to destroy everything the gods created.

Mythology is not a strong interest of mine, but Empty Altars’ synopsis poked my curiosity. The beginning started a bit slow and was somewhat confusing (I’m sure due to my lack of mythological knowledge), but once the action started and the pace picked up, Ms. Post’s voice had my full attention.

Strong characterization, layered personalities and a solid plot kept me turning pages. For those who enjoy fantasy worlds ruled by gods, goddesses and magic, Empty Altars will not disappoint. I am thrilled at finding a new author to follow and look forward to reading more of Ms. Post’s work.

4.0 out of 5 stars If I had a cat it be like Noir 9 Sept. 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
It took me a while to get in to the book, which I am not sure why it did. It was a very well written piece of work and I loved the characters. I love mythology of any sorts and I found it very amusing when both geek/roman and norse myth were able to meet each other in this book. You don't find a plot like this very often of a mixed mythology. The author nailed the personalities of the characters that linked them their mythology. The Roman being this kind of above all attitude and think that she's immortals, to the norse gods kind of more human like since they know they are not immortal. Plus I love their fun snarky personality it made it easy to connect to Diana.see that I can be a little stubborn at times too, and who couldn't love Tyr. HAHA If you like mythology of any sorts this would be a good book for you to read :)
5.0 out of 5 stars Great main character 20 Aug. 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com

I'm reading Empty Altars right now and I'm loving it. This is about the fourth title by Ms. Post that I've read and, although I obviously love her writing, I have to say this is my favorite series by her. Her characters are so charming and smart, the situations she builds for them so clever that I'd rather curl up with her and a nice bottle of wine than watch t v any day!
The main character in Empty Altars is the goddess Diana. She has a tough battle ahead of her this time when she is transported to Asgard and must help Tyr the Norse sky god defeat one of his mortal enemies.
I can't tell you how it ends but, it's really good so far!
5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Story! 7 Sept. 2014
By J. Stefan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Gods and Goddesses, Demi gods, and more Paranormals than you can count! A mix of Norse and Greek myths come to life and take you on a wild ride. This is simply extremely well done with a great plot, lots of twists and traitors. Come to envision the epic battles only the Immortals can provide. Well worth the read! I won't get into describing the story as you can read the synopsis for that kind of description. What I liked best was the mix of mortal and immortal struggling together and working mostly in harmony. I would certainly like living in this world even though it is a rough one compared to our luxuries. Bravo!
5.0 out of 5 stars Like it! 5 Sept. 2014
By Patricia Kenworthy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I liked this book but the beginning seemed slow to me. I'm still giving it 5 stars because it may have been that I read it right after a series of very funny fast moving books and I didn't adjust quickly to a different pace. I liked it more as I moved forward.
The story was an imaginative mix of old gods and goddesses from different cultures attempting to work together with some humans, dragons, giants, witches and other mythical creatures to save a common world from an evil witch and her minions.
There was excellent character development and even a little romance, but not heavy sex scenes.
