Artemis's Hunt by Lisa Davis (Audiobook)

Artemis's Hunt: Sons of War | [Lia Davis]Book Description:
Artemis, goddess of the hunt, has lived with heartache for the last 1500 years, believing her only love is dead. That's what her father - Zeus, king of the gods - told her. After recent events brought the truth to light, Artemis must gather the courage to face her lost love again.
Evangelos, former god of messengers, was content living in the mortal world until he discovered he has a daughter and her mother is Artemis. When the goddess shows up at his place of employment with tales of renewing his god status, he's skeptical. Zeus wouldn't reverse the curse out of the goodness of his heart. There is always a catch. The god king wants something in return.
When Artemis explains she has to hunt down her stepmother, Hera, in order to get Evan back into Zeus's good graces, Evan demands to accompany her. However, the journey turns out to be a test that could bring them closer together or tear them apart forever.
My Thoughts:
I enjoyed this novella.  Artemis has believed her true love has been dead for the past 1500 years.  She recently found out her father, Zeus, had sent him to the human realm to live and he cannot come to Olympus.  He didn't know that Artemis had a daughter...his daughter until recently.  Now, Artemis comes to him, determined to get Zeus to lift his curse.  Though skeptical, with their daughter's help, they search for the goddess Hera to complete their mission.
I really liked Artemis.  I felt horrible for her and how she had to endure believing her love was lost forever.  Not to mention that she raised their daughter on their own.  The family interaction was amusing and how they all worked together trying to break Zeus' curse.  Hera is horrible and I didn't like how she completely didn't care that it was the only way Artemis could ever be happy again.
This was a 3/5 for me.  I enjoyed the secondary characters as much as the main characters.
Thank you to the author/publisher for the review copy of this book.  I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
