What a fun read! When I read sci-fi and fantasy I look for a book with a plot or theme that can’t be conveyed without fantastical elements. An Accidental Goddess is a space-fantasy with a protagonist who wakes up centuries after her last battle and discovers she’s being worshipped as a Goddess. Definitely a story that couldn’t happen in the here and now–well, not without a fair bit of blasphemy. The Virgin Mary waking up might be extremely fun…but then again, would be “fantasy” to a fair number of people.
The characters Accidental Goddess are really well drawn. The story moves quickly, and the romance doesn’t feel forced. It’s also not particularly steamy. Those looking for anatomy lessons in their romantic fiction will be sadly disappointed. (I already have taken gross anatomy, and have seen multitudes of cadavers without their clothes or even skin, and I really don’t like to go there, thank you.)
