Summary

Raheiran Special Forces captain Gillaine Davré has just woken up in some unknown space way station, wondering where the last 300 years have gone. The last thing she remembers is her ship being attacked. Now it seems that while she was time traveling, she was ordained a goddess....

Gillaine's only hope of survival rests with dangerously seductive Admiral Mack Makarian, who suspects her of being a smuggler - or worse. But he can't begin to imagine the full extent of it. For Gillaine is now Lady Kiasidira, holy icon to countless believers, including Mack, a man who inspires feelings in her that are far from saintly. But when their flirtation is interrupted by a treacherous enemy from the past, Gillaine's secret - and secret desires - could destroy them both.

Love the print; less so the narrator

This book, the story, is full of wry wit and humor, especially between Simon and Gillaine, and some serious interactions -- rather like life.

The perfect narrator for this book would be someone who could read the characters and situations instead of just the words. The perfect narrator would be able to do male characters with enough differences that you could tell who was who. And the perfect narrator could nuance humor. To me, this narrator failed on all counts. Not to say she isn't a clear and capable speaker, just not the person for this book.

I would suggest fans of the genre (or the book, if you've already read it) to skip this audio version, buy the book and spend some down time with it, your favorite beverage, and a little chocolate.

Interesting take on Sci-fi Romance

I've read a few sci-fi romance that just ended up being alien men that were just like human men but bigger. This was not that. All the characters were human, (I think) but it was more like if the human race spread out over the next 5000 years and how different cultures would come from that. I wasn't really expecting the magic elements although they didn't detract from the book.

I really enjoyed it. The romance was slow. This wasn't your typical erotica porn. I liked it that way for the most part. While there was an instant connection between the two it wasn't unrealistic soulmates and undying love at first sight. It felt a little more real and was given time to progress and make you want to see them get together.
I thought the plot was interesting. Waking up centuries after an epic space battle to discover the people you saved thought you were a god. Interesting.

One of My Go To's in Audiobooks

Gillaine 'Gilly' Davre has just woken up in a strange spaceport's sickbay and doesn't know how she got there. That doesn't disturb her though, she's been on enough pub crawls that waking up after a black out isn't a strange and frightening experience anymore, but the fact that it is roughly three hundred years later then the day she last remembered does throw her for a loop. Kiasadiras like Gilly are powerful, but she knows better then anyone that they aren't immortal. But that's okay, Gilly's situation is strange but she knows what she has to do. Fix her ship without anyone noticing her and get back home; simple enough. Do it under the eye of the newly instated and very handsome Admiral of the fifth fleet; not a problem. Fix her ship and leave while undercover while being scrutinized by the Admiral and at the same time save the Kalar from an ancient alien threat she had thought she had beaten three hundred years ago? Not so easy. The fact that the Kalar now view her as a Goddess is only the icing on the proverbial cake.
I've been a customer of Audible for a few years now, and as a result have a massive library of audiobooks. For me, though, an Accidental Goddess always stands out and has become my 'Go To' audiobook whenever I need it. Not because the story does anything new and daring, or the narrator's voice is outstanding. My feelings for the book is a lot like the feeling a person might have for a favorite movie or restaurant, something familiar and comfortable that never gets old no matter how many times you go back to it.

Wanted to finish in 1 sitting!

What made the experience of listening to An Accidental Goddess the most enjoyable?

The story kept me wanting to listen until the end. It was a little different from other SciFi-Romance books I've read.

What did you like best about this story?

The characters were well written, no love triangles (which if not written well, are annoying), and no boring areas.

What does Amy Landon bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The narration was excellent! You could easily distinguish each character and their personalities. I would definitely look for other books read by Amy Landon.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Definitely! I listened in my car on the way to work & back home. Too bad work & sleep get in the way.

Any additional comments?

Looking forward to other installments.

BEYOND BORING!

Im about to DNF it. It's so boring. Its just a non stop informational dump. Been listening for over an hour and a half and nothing. Just dumping of irrelevant information and no action or romance and anything interesting.

Even ff through a ton of it doesn't help. How anyone rated this a 4 or 5 I'll never understand because this is definitely in the top 5 most boring stories I've ever listened to. The heroines a cowardly fucking idiot! Oh what's that..everyone's in danger and I could literally solve it by telling the man who's gaga over me the truth...allow me to instead stand back and stfu and make up a ton of lies that just convolute the situation even more. Idk why I kept listening to it. Even when he finds out she STILL LIES!!! She just makes up more dumb ass lies when telling him could erase so many issues and alert him to stay safe against an attack. She's just so fucking dumb! I kept thinking she'd tell him and the story would improve, it didn't happen. The author continously tries to justify her lying, but with what the risks are they don't even come close to justification.

While the narrator isn't awful she did contribute to the boring. Her performance was completely flat as it she was just reading the book not performing it. I've heard worse but will avoid anything she's on in the future.

Great si-fi not a good romance

The romance tag is very misleading I was enjoying the story so I kept listening. I really like the story but wish it world have been kept out of the romance category.

Good sci-fi

I have read this story many times, this is my first listen. story is still highly enjoyable and flows will. my only reason to knock off the star is many of the secondary character voices were not distinct enough to tell one from another band with the many names it allowed for a bit of confusion you was saying what.
Still recommend this audible story to anyone liking sci-fi with a bit of romance.
