is an interesting continuation of the Goddess’ Revenge
story, Book 1 of the Mythos series. I loved the way Psyche grew in
this story, standing up for herself and setting her mother-in-law to
rights. I was a little disturbed by her mission in Hades, but
enjoyed watching her best Aphrodite at every turn. Eros also grew
in this tale.
Readers who read Goddess’
Revenge will enjoy Mortal Retribution.
Readers new to the series need to start at the first book, and will
enjoy this look into the lives of the Greek gods.
