This book was an amazing YA read I didn’t had in months. I love fantasy genre but with Greek mythology? And an amazingly written YA?? Yes. A big yes and an all – night reading for me . So lets get into business.
I got this ARC from NetGalley in exchange of an honest opinion
Author : Elizabeth Tammi
Publication date : 25th November
Isbn no : ISBN13 9781635830262
The Huntresses of Artemis must obey two rules: never disobey the goddess, and never fall in love. After being rescued from a harrowing life as an Oracle of Delphi, Kahina is glad to be a part of the Hunt; living among a group of female warriors gives her a chance to reclaim her strength, even while her prophetic powers linger. But when a routine mission goes awry, Kahina breaks the first rule in order to save the legendary huntress Atalanta.
To earn back Artemis’s favor, Kahina must complete a dangerous task in the kingdom of Arkadia— where the king’s daughter is revealed to be none other than Atalanta. Still reeling from her disastrous quest and her father’s insistence on marriage, Atalanta isn’t sure what to make of Kahina. As her connection to Atalanta deepens, Kahina finds herself in danger of breaking Artemis’ second rule.
- Basically , this book travels with two POV. Kahina and Atalanta. Outrun the wind totally focussed on two teenage girls with full focus and spite. What is more interesting?
- The story gets into a castle and happens mostly in Arkadia . But never gets boring.
- I love it when the characters react as human beings. When Atalanta hears she is actually a princess , she doesn’t get along like another day. She reacts .
- There was no line ” she released a breath she didn’t knew she was holding” . Someone else urges the said character to breathe which is total reality.
-Kahina and Atalanta are the two protagonists and i just love them so much. Their differences in appearance and emotions are written beautifully. Kahina is short , Atalanta is tall. But that never really slips out from us .
-Melagar appeared for just minutes or i daresay pages? But he is such a sweetheart.
-Nora is the perfect mom or aunt we all have in our home . Extremely protective but is so warm .
– King Iasus is a perfect description of a struggling king and father , a man of principles. He deserves more love.
-Nikoleta rules. She is awesome , hardcore and totally rules wherever she is mentioned. You go girl!
-Phelix is mysterious and a choco pie . I loved him so much
-Isidora is awesome and her level headedness and judgement is greatly written.
- This book must be read by all of us fantasy loving and Greek mythology geek bookdragons. I totally loved this book.
The trees tremble and it is not from the wind.
Starts with Atlanta’s point of view
I grip Atlanta’s hand and the world unfurls itself to glorious possibilities
Ends with Kahina’s point of view.
I love how every single thing in the book relates to the wind and the first and last lines depict the picture and the entire feeling of us.
Note about author

Thank you priyasha. Glad you liked it😊.
I really enjoyed this book too when I read it a few months ago! I need more books on Greek mythology tbh
Yes. Circe and song of Achilles is still in my TBR too.
I LOVED Circe!!! Need to tackle Song of Achilles next
Oooh, I’d not heard of this but it sounds right up my street! Definitely adding this to the TBR
Great review! I have an eARC of this book and am excited to read it in early November!
I need this book! I love Greek mythology in books, I’m currently listening to Mythos by Stephen Fry which is amazing.

I am always up for a good Greek mythology retelling! Honestly the myth of Atalanta is one of my favorites too. She is not too mainstream, but also well-known enough to be worthy of a retelling. Thanks for the awesome review!
