Summary: (From Goodreads)
Phoebe, who recently discovered she's a descendant of Nike (the goddess, not the shoe), is finding that supernatural powers come with a crazy learning curve. Her stepfather, headmaster of the Academy for descendants of the Greek gods, has enrolled her at Dynamotheos Development Camp - aka Goddess Boot Camp - with a bunch of ten-year-olds for the summer. Embarrassing as that is, hopefully it'll help her gain control over her powers in time to pass the test of the gods, continue training hard enough to qualify for the Pythian Games, and enjoy her godly boyfriend, Griffin, all while avoiding the ultimate mistake of accidentally misusing powers.

It's another fast-paced myth-inspired heroine's quest that's sure to bring out the goddess in anyone.

My Opinion:
I really enjoyed this book. And I finished it in two days. Though this one was not as good as the first one. Compared to the first one there was not as much humor in it.
But as I said I enjoyed it. Well written and fast read. And I enjoyed following Phoebe on her journey to learn more about her powers and her father.
But I was missing some more humor and some romance. As in the first one :)
Therefor I chose to give it 4 out of 6 stars

Sad this story is over. But I have already bought myself more books by this author. Because she writes very well :) So looking forward to reading more of her stuff :D

  1. Aw I'm sorry this one wasn't as good as the first book. I have never read anything by her even though I really really want to read her mermaid series.

    thanks for the great review
