Publisher's Summary

Best-selling poet, writer, and Instagram sensation Nikita Gill returns with a collection of poetry and prose retelling the legends of the Goddesses, both great and small, in their own words.

With lyrical prose and striking verse, beloved poet Nikita Gill (Fierce Fairytales, Wild Embers) uses the history of Ancient Greece and beyond to explore and share the stories of the mothers, warriors, creators, survivors, and destroyers who shook the world. In pieces that burn with empathy and admiration for these women, Gill unearths the power and glory of the very foundations of mythology and culture that have been too-often ignored or pushed aside.

Gill's poetry and stories weave old and forgotten tales of might and love into an empowering collection for the modern woman.

Critic Reviews

A New York Times Book Review New & Noteworthy Pick

"Powerful...we all grew up to the sounds of sweet bedtime tales, captivated by the stories of Gods, monsters, princes and distressed damsels.... Indeed, these heroines aren’t distressed, they’re depressed - and they need someone to give them a voice. That person is Gill." (Vanity Fair

"This empowering collection sheds light on women who are often misunderstood and is a piece of 'modern feminst magic.'" (Book Riot

Hypnotic!

Nikita Gill’s storytelling is breathtakingly amazing. This is highly recommended for those who love diving into stories behind stories, as I felt Nikita Gill was giving me a glimpse of the goddesses’ secrets. I’m in love with the book. This is a gift I am excited to give to my friends, especially women of all ages who are getting to know the goddesses within themselves.

enjoyable but problematic

While I will always enjoy the myths and legends of the gods and goddesses I found that this particular work,while well written, was tainted by the underpinnings of duplicity, hypocrisy, and the toxic message of modern feminism. I believe that the original myths were a product of their time and not a reflection of our modern day society, and to twist them into a vehicle for a current ideology does them grave injustice. If one takes this as a form of fiction then it was a very pleasant listen.
