Blood Maiden by Crystal Carroll

Throughout this novel we are given a variety of characters from a multitude of mythologies. Not only are we given all of this information in one novel, but it is done in a way that isn't forceful or confusing, which is very surprising. Most authors would have probably muddled the mythology or thrown it all at us at once which would have made the novel turn out pretty bad. However, Carroll deosn't just stick with the realities of those myths, and instead also gives them a little more depth through making the characters supernatural powers real. 

In this story of figuring out who she is, Blood Maiden learns that she is who she is, but that she can still be what she wants, like being with Danny Unfortunately, the only way Blood Maiden figures any of this out is through several perilous adventures involving herself and the other Gods.

After reading this novel, I couldn't really find anything that I didn't enjoy about it. The only thing that I would have enjoyed more would have been more book to read!
