    this was very confusing and the ending seemed so unconclusive bUT the writing was very soft and elegant, it was an okay read, a nice book if you re looking for something light and easy to read

    This book actually is not so bad Ancient Greek myths always attracted me over stories about Ganymede and Zeus I read lots of fanfiction about them too BUT sadly in this book they re not an item and It s kinda a let down Sometimes I also got confused by the words,realm and I hope to see another God Goddess like Apollo Hera Poseidon,etc Instead Zeus s Olympus is just like a massive harem The ending also not so satisfying The author seems just like forgotten about Zeus and Eros and just t This book actually is not so bad Ancient Greek myths always attracted me over stories about Ganymede and Zeus I read lots of fanfiction about them too BUT sadly in this book they re not an item and It s kinda a let down Sometimes I also got confused by the words,realm and I hope to see another God Goddess like Apollo Hera Poseidon,etc Instead Zeus s Olympus is just like a massive harem The ending also not so satisfying The author seems just like forgotten about Zeus and Eros and just thrown up Ganymede and Sable together like that No further explanation which only left me hanging in the dark

    Buddy read with RebeccaI m confused.What even is this book It was well written and quite enjoyable, with interesting world building and a fascinating take on the whole mythology stuff.I can say absolutely nothing about the plot or story The pacing is weird, many questions are asked but never answered, there is no conclusion but also no real problem or story arc in the first place.Ganymede seemed like the wrong character for this setup He s so passive and his thoughts and actions seem to have n Buddy read with RebeccaI m confused.What even is this book It was well written and quite enjoyable, with interesting world building and a fascinating take on the whole mythology stuff.I can say absolutely nothing about the plot or story The pacing is weird, many questions are asked but never answered, there is no conclusion but also no real problem or story arc in the first place.Ganymede seemed like the wrong character for this setup He s so passive and his thoughts and actions seem to have no impact whatsoever on the course of the events, what happened around him, or the sequence of scenes.Over still quite enjoyable to read and very well written but if asked I could tell you nothing about this book

    This book was surprisingly short.I don t know why I d assumed it would be longer Perhaps because of the long too long, in my opinion blurb And I know that the length of the book s description has nothing to do with the length of the book itself But yeah, I was surprised when I flicked my finger a few times and my Kindle app showed me I was already two percent into the book.Okay So it was short But was it good Yes It s a really good, quick read you can finish off in one day.There isn t This book was surprisingly short.I don t know why I d assumed it would be longer Perhaps because of the long too long, in my opinion blurb And I know that the length of the book s description has nothing to do with the length of the book itself But yeah, I was surprised when I flicked my finger a few times and my Kindle app showed me I was already two percent into the book.Okay So it was short But was it good Yes It s a really good, quick read you can finish off in one day.There isn t much going on as in the characters and us along them being thrown from one action scene to the other, but there s a lot of emphasis on what the main character is feeling And it s done really well I genuinely felt sorry for Ganymede and I was seriously pissed off at Zeus for what he did.And that s really important to me It could be a long book or a shorter one, it could be just boy meets girl or boy meets boy I seem to be reviewing mostly that lately it could have a generous helping of clich s, but if the author makes me feel so strongly about the characters, I m instantly in love with the book.The author s way of writing is somehow poetic and Ganymede, who narrates the story, spends a lot of time into his own head, which I know some readers find as a turn off, but Wendy s words hooked me in The book sounded a lotlike a fairytale than a novel and I quite enjoyed myself while reading it.I d recommend Ganymede Abducted by the Gods to lovers of LGBT Fantasy stories, who do not need a fast paced book to enjoy themselves

    Jumbled writingI usually love Wendy Rathbone s books, and this one starts off promising But then she introduces all these modern elements into it Zeus and Eros talk about DNA and stardrives There are the usual orgies, excess, and decadence associated with Olympus, but everything is disjointed Some paragraphs seem like random combinations of words that just sound good together It feels like she s trying to harness all aspects of creation, existing and potential, and work them into this one G Jumbled writingI usually love Wendy Rathbone s books, and this one starts off promising But then she introduces all these modern elements into it Zeus and Eros talk about DNA and stardrives There are the usual orgies, excess, and decadence associated with Olympus, but everything is disjointed Some paragraphs seem like random combinations of words that just sound good together It feels like she s trying to harness all aspects of creation, existing and potential, and work them into this one Greek myth, but the two have nothing to do with each other There are plot holes For example, in the beginning while he still on earth, Ganymede says he doesn t like to be touched That seemed promising a boy who hates being touched kidnapped to be Zeus lover Lots of dramatic possibilities But then he gets to Olympus and even though it takes a while before he sleeps with Zeus, he s suddenly not bothered by being touched but no explanation is given After awhile, this golden boy, heartbroken, homesick, humble in his desires, becomes a sullen, unlikable adolescent I stopped reading 40 pages before the end I m hoping the second book in this series ispromising

    The writing was ok, I have no complaints But the book as a whole was confusing.First I had other expectations from a retelling of Greek mythology The story in itself, the lack of characters I did expect to seethan 4 characters, 3 in 1 servants and a mass character on Olympus Second nothing happened At all For almost half the book Ok, Ganymede was kidnapped But that is how the plot started That was the whole premise of this story And no, the ending does not count, because there i The writing was ok, I have no complaints But the book as a whole was confusing.First I had other expectations from a retelling of Greek mythology The story in itself, the lack of characters I did expect to seethan 4 characters, 3 in 1 servants and a mass character on Olympus Second nothing happened At all For almost half the book Ok, Ganymede was kidnapped But that is how the plot started That was the whole premise of this story And no, the ending does not count, because there is no real explanation as to what exactly is happening to Olympus If the author wanted to leave a cliffhanger for the next book, it is to bad Beacause this book fell a bit flat.Third I almost DNF ed this book I didn t because I kept hoping the ending would redeem it obviously, I didn t read some of the reviews But I will not continue with the series

    Rating 2.5 starsThis book just wasn t for me For one there is little or no romance between Sable and Ganymede Most of the book is set on Olympus and the interactions between Zeus and Ganymede with Eros mixed in Sable is this silent presence that to be honest, if I was Ganymede I would be upset that he didn t rescue me from the hell that was Olympus Then there was all the philosophy and DNA and different worlds I want to read a fantasy, I don t want to have to think about the meaning of lif Rating 2.5 starsThis book just wasn t for me For one there is little or no romance between Sable and Ganymede Most of the book is set on Olympus and the interactions between Zeus and Ganymede with Eros mixed in Sable is this silent presence that to be honest, if I was Ganymede I would be upset that he didn t rescue me from the hell that was Olympus Then there was all the philosophy and DNA and different worlds I want to read a fantasy, I don t want to have to think about the meaning of life while I read a romance novel I definitely won t be reading anyin this series The next books are about Zeus and Eros who I really disliked throughout the course of this story

    I m having trouble with my review here This was an okay book, but I was never invested in any of the characters Also, this is supposed to be a romance, but for me the romance didn t show up until I was already three quarters of the way through the book Ganymede and Sable are the romantic couple, but they don t get together until that three quarter mark Up until this time, Ganymede has been with Zeus, which isn t really a romantic relationship at all Otherwise, the story itself is well writt I m having trouble with my review here This was an okay book, but I was never invested in any of the characters Also, this is supposed to be a romance, but for me the romance didn t show up until I was already three quarters of the way through the book Ganymede and Sable are the romantic couple, but they don t get together until that three quarter mark Up until this time, Ganymede has been with Zeus, which isn t really a romantic relationship at all Otherwise, the story itself is well written, but the pacing is slow It does have an interesting mix of mythology and sci fi And the world building was incredible So, it was an okay read for me Others might love it

    This book was harder to get into than I expected it to be I was never really sure I liked Gan as a character I think Eros was the character I liked the best The writing was good, though, and for never liking the characters, by halfway through the book, I was invested in finding out what would happen I enjoyed it, but it s not going in my re read stack.
