Just okay

This was just not for me. This story of a goddess and gods was ok, but never really could get into it. The narrator was okay but she couldn't get my attention.

Egyptian Mythology Short Story

Daughter of the Sun by Laura Greenwood is a Egyptian Mythology story that I listened to on audio narrated by Sterling LeGrand-Carney. This is the second book in the Forgotten Gods series and can be read as a stand-alone.

I absolutely love Laura’s books! This story does end on a bit of a cliffhanger so I am looking forward to jumping into the third book in the series Servant of Chaos.

Sterling did a great job on the narration. I look forward to listening to more of her work in the future.

Can be read as a standalone but part of a series

Sekhmet has had a long time to think about her actions but what if you're the goddess of vengeance. Are thousands of years long enough to see the errors of your ways? Sekhmet is trapped by an ancient curse when her time is finally up she must decide whether she can overcome her past. The reward may be greater than punishing the ones who wronged her.

I haven't read much Egyptian mythology and I really enjoyed this. Curses, romance and gods... I liked it. This was an audiobook and the narrator was really good. It's official, I'm calling it, I'm a fan of Laura Greenwood's books.

Different but good

I went into this audiobook thinking it was a supernatural romance. And in a way it was but that was kind of the side story. It was mainly a mythological story with a lesson behind the story. I did like it but it was different than what I thought the type of story would be. I prefer the romance to be stronger in a story. The narrator had a great accent and told the story well.

Mythology for you

This spin on mythology had me a little lost! I found myself overthinking the characters. The storyline was good and the underline message of revenge is strong. Great narration.

I just couldn't get into this one....

Sadly this book just didn't flow right for me. I found the writing style to be choppy and immature in nature. The whole story just didn't flow well. To top it off the narrator just really fell flat. I had to increase the speed quite a but just to get it to a normal sounding cadence. It sounded more like a teenager reading a story to a sibling than a professional narrator. I really wanted to enjoy this story but there were just too many things that caused it to fall flat for me.

Oh wow...what an amazing read - revenge and love and the goddess of vengeance. What a lovely read.

Great writing and characters.

I must say the narration was just so incredibly beautiful.

Great story

Loved this spin on Egyptian mythology! Sekmet had been trapped for a thousand years believing that her father was the one that caused her being trapped. While she is the Goddess of Vengeance and wants those her has cursed her to pay, she learns she must follow certain standards in order to not have her curse return and her be trapped. The narrator did a pretty good job, but like I have seen others say she did fall a little flat when voicing other characters.

Snarky & Vengeful

This was a great Egyptian mythology story! Sekhmet has been trapped for a thousand years, but when her release comes, she has to choose between love and revenge. I loved her snarky and vengeful personality and besides being created that way, she has every right to feel those things after being cursed as a sphinx. I liked the romance that she had with Fet even though it wasn’t the main focus of the story.
Sterling did a pretty good job with the narration. For the most part, I think she portrayed Sekhmet’s emotions very well, but at times it did feel a little flat when she voiced other characters.

Cool idea

Listened to the audio version. The narration wasn't my favorite; she was a bit stilted at times, but she did okay.

I like the Egyptian mythology and the romance has a couple sweet moments, but not much happens. Sekhmet was cursed and has been trapped as a sphinx for around 1,000 years, so she's understandably prickly. Fet rescues her and he's a sweetie, but Sekhmet isn't too happy. She's a vengeance goddess and wants those who cursed her pay. She's just basically grouchy the whole time, while she grumps at people. The story is fairly basic; it didn't quite draw me in. Still entertaining enough though.

Great Story

I absolutely love this Egyptian mythology inspired contemporary story. I really like that she uses different Gods and Goddesses than typical books.

Sekhmet's story was fascinating, the story behind her was heartbreaking. She's the goddess of vengeance and filled with sarcasm, I was completely captivated from the start.

The narration by Sterling LeGrand-Carney was fantastic.

Where are you hiding kitty?

Cute soft and fluffy? Not quite, more like a woman scorned. Here l was thinking God(s) were perfect and examples to us mere mortals, how wrong l was. There are troubles afoot which will keep you entertained and educated if you are like me. l did read
Protectors of poison first and both books were lots of fun. Recommended Author. Easy listening voice from the narrator.
