100 years of punishment.
Gardenia didn't ask for it. Yet the Fates brewed their plans ever since before she was born.
On the day of gaining knowledge about what humanity truly is, Gardenia decides to do something stupid... create a galaxy without permission. Out of that childish choice, something breaks inside of her and she decides to spend her 100 years with dragons.
After searching the stars, Gardenia finds her first teacher and then the next and the next. However, what does one do when one falls in love with your family's adversary? When one falls in love with a dragon?
And what if the Fates are ready to make their move?
Three Boundless Stars
This is a cute story of a feisty, young goddess; I guess you can call it a coming-of-age story, just not in the typical human sense. We join Gardenia, daughter of Zeus and Athena, on an eventful journey as she learns to create her own galaxy; once this is complete she will no longer be considered a child by her fellow gods and goddesses. This particular journey is unique from any other “lesson,” as Gardenia has decided to learn from dragons, rather than her own elders. Her community is insulted and outraged by this choice; which leaves her shunned and denied by her peers. To make matters even worse, she falls in love with one of the dragons she chose as a teacher; dragons are sworn enemies to all gods and goddesses. However, throughout her adventurous lessons, Gardenia discovers not all things are as they seem and learns of truths that may enlighten what is publicly known about the history of the gods and goddesses. Will this hurt her even further, or save her from the consequences of her rebellious actions?
Deity’s Soulmate is well written, with beautiful imagery and developed characters. It was cute and funny at times, but I didn’t feel it was a smooth or easy read at times. There were several parts throughout the series that read a little slowly, causing boredom while reading. There were several editing errors, and this caused quite a few bumps in the read as well.
Overall, I liked Deity’s Soulmate; however, the boredom while reading means it could have been better, this typically earns a rating of 3 Boundless Stars.
