Thank you to Jamie for giving me a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
The Goddess's choice was fantastic! I want this novel to become a film! For me personally it had all of the elements to make a great book; strong and interesting characters, a plot with substance and romance.
The more I read the story the more I enjoyed it, I found my jaw dropping open a lot and screaming at the book "no" or "yes". Jamie Marchant creates a fantasy world we can get lost in, the characters come alive and I found myself imagining them as I read.
I occasionally had to reread chapters or became confused at the chapters when they introduced new characters, but truthfully it added to the chaotic and busy feeling of the battle and time limit in the plot.

I felt truly submerged in to a fantastic world full of mythical creatures and characters. The novel also tackled several moral issues and had a consistent good vs evil feeling throughout. The scenes between Robbie and his father touched me as did the scenes between Angus and Donella showing how deeply grief can affect others, but also showing how it is never to late for reconciliation or forgiveness.

As a reader, I truly felt Robbies pain and struggle as he had to let go of all of his hatred and anger, it was fascinating to read and had me on the edge of my street. It wasn't obvious to me whether he would or wouldn't be able to.

I absolutely loved this book and authors style!

I was asked to read this book and found it to be a very well written tale filled with adventure, magic, suspense and intrigue.

It was supposedly inspired by a Norwegian story that I don't know but this fantasy was a compelling read, not least due to the complex, detailed and realistic characters; at least two of which have interesting gifts.

There were fabulous villains just perfect to hate and those trying to strive for goodness and yet flawed and 'real'. I thoroughly enjoyed the magic and mythical elements which sat well within this cohesive story.

I was hooked from the start, as they say and think this author knows exactly how storytelling should be done, where fantasy meets realism while valuable lessons can be learned.

I loved it and would certainly read more of this author's work.

Highly recommended.

The Goddess's Choice is a retelling of the Norwegian fairy tale The Princess on the Glass Hill and while I hadn't heard of the story before, I do love fairy-tale retellings, so it was interesting to see how Jamie Marchant incorporated the fairy-tale elements in The Goddess's Choice. She succeeds quite well and apart from some problems with the writing and some quibbles with characterization, the book is a largely successful narrative, which managed to charm and entertain me for most of its pages.

For most of the book, this would have made a great YA read; it's only the last few chapters where there are some explicit sexual scenes that make it more suited for an (new) adult audience. I thought that was rather a shame as the story deals largely with themes that define YA: finding one's identity, fighting for your right to make your own decisions, that being Other doesn't equate being evil etc. experienced by protagonists that are teens themselves at age sixteen. While I personally wouldn't mind an older teen, i.e. 17+, reading it - they see far more smutty and less heart-felt things on TV these days - I realise many parents wouldn't approve of their child reading such scenes, so I hesitate to qualify it as a YA book.

There were several elements in the writing that bothered me throughout the book. To start with in at least the earliest chapters of the book there is a lot of repetition of the statement that Robbie is considered a demon due to his looks, he's Mediterranean-looking as opposed to the rest of the villagers' Scandinavian looks. It's made clear that not only do the villagers and his family think so, Robbie half believes it himself. Unfortunately, this is repeated so often in those early pages that I quickly tired of hearing about it and it lost its impact.
