PUBLISHERS WEEKLY CRITIC OF PROMETHEUS' PRIESTESS

 THE BOOK LIFE PRIZE: QUARTER FINALIST 2022

"Lesley's plot is clever and inviting, and readers will be entertained by the amusing exchanges between the immortals on Mount Olympus. Displaying traditional prose in the style of Greek mythology is a wise move for Lesley, whose writing is nuanced and elaborate. The format is true to a more classical style that aligns with the book's premise, although there is plenty of attention-grabbing conflict to go around.

Lesley delivers a memorable conclusion that builds on this book's intriguing concepts, and the writing both mimics and amplifies similar genre stories. Despite the challenge of expanding on well-known characters, Lesley is able to present them in refreshing ways that will make readers take notice. Their interiority and development is a surprising strength of the novel."
