      Apparently the author simply read the first line of Artemis' info before creating this character. She was so much more than the Goddess of War. In the story (which was super short, and yet I couldn't even finish it because it was so inaccurate!), Artemis judges a tourist simply because the woman is fat, and then harms her for shoving her dog. Don't get me wrong, messing with a puppy is fraked up. BUT, Artemis is also the Goddess of what we now call "Women's Issues" and I'm pretty sure as such s [...]

      A really nice short story, enjoyable in the first part, but it takes a dark twist in the last lines, when the reader can understand what is going to happen to Artemis. Honestly, I would have preferred to know something more about the part when she was running away from her pack, or the moment when she was killed by them rather then this, but I enjoyed it anyway.

      Stood well on its own. I thought it captured the sense of a goddess feeling a little mortalr/2015/09/09/the-dog

      I loved reading this short story. It is set before the Antigoddess trilogy. And it is from the point of view of Artemis, Goddess of Hunt. And oh my gosh, I adored reading from her. But then I remember how she ends in Antigoddess, and that breaks my heart. I wanted to read more about her. She seemed amazing.This story is about Artemis and her pack in Athens. She is looking for other gods, but she doesn't find any. Which is just heartbreaking. Especially knowing that they are all dying somewhere. [...]

      Book: AntigoddessAuthor: Kendare BlakeSource: tor/2015/09/09/the-dogI've always wanted to know more about Artemis, ever since the first book. The resulting outcome is a very sad, quite well written short story. The devastation of Artemis throughout the book is palpable, she know's whats going to happen to her and we get to see her experience unknown feelings of regret. I feel that her death was the most gloomy death of the lot (apart from Hermes of course).

      4.5 starsI LOVED this novella! I thought it was a great addition to the Antigoddess series, with just enough tension and intrigue to play into the whole vibe of the series well.

    8. Joanna on said:

      Very short story from the world of Antigoddess. Extremely vivid slice of that world from the perspective of Artemis, which was fresh and intriguing. More, please!

    9. Rebecca on said:

      Set in the same world as The Goddess Wars series, this features Artemis and her pack of dogs as they search for more Gods in Athens. Fans of this series will love the extra insight into Artemis, especially those who know her eventual story, whilst new readers of this series will get an insight into the weird and wonderful world Blake has created.This story is relatively slow, especially for a short story, and only really takes off towards the end. This is disappointing for fans I suppose because [...]

      I think this was my first read by Kendare Blake. Needless to say, it won't be my last. :)Although it was definitely dark, The Dogs of Athens was enjoyable. It was interesting to see how Blake turned the story around - from Artemis thinking about how lives of mortal must suck (aren't my skills with verbiage and summary amazing? haha), because of the limited time they have on earth, to realizing that the life of a goddess can have moments of mortality.I know I'm missing out on some backstory since [...]

    11. Nikki on said:

      The Dogs of Athens was a solid read and well-written. It had the graphic and unexpected nature that I have come to expect from Blake's writing and I was not disappointed. I did not read the summary prior to reading the short and was surprised that the story took such a violent turn with Artemis' dogs. However, to be fair, I am not very knowledgeable when it comes to Artemis and Blake does have a flair for the graphic. Overall I enjoyed it and it made me look forward to the last in the trilogy al [...]

    12. Vicky on said:

      Even though it is a prequel, it should be read after finishing the first book, because it hints at events happening in the series. Since I am waiting for Ungodly, the story was nice for getting back into the series. The story explains what happened to Artemis in the series, which was really interesting. (view spoiler)[ I always wondered by whom she was being hunted (I think it says "wild beasts" but being hunted down by your own pack is brutal(hide spoiler)] I also liked getting to know Artemis [...]

      This is a short story, not a novel, but as always no matter what the length Kendare Blake delivers the goods. This is an adjunct to the Antigoddess series. The goddess Artemis goes to Athens, looking for other gods. With her is her pack of dogs--or are they dogs? At any rate, things are not what they seem. The last sentence of this story literally made me shiver. I still get goose bumps thinking about it. A marvelous story. I hope she adds to this series.

    14. Celina on said:

      I was kind of confused at the end. I read it on my eReader and At first I thought I just bought a preview and not the actual book but then I realized that it was just a short story. The open end leaves so much potential for an actual novel and I wish I could read about what happens next. Nevertheless I enjoyed reading the story

    15. Yuliya on said:

      Not entirely sure what I've just read. What is wrong with Artemis? Why this change with dogs?As always, there are just two alternatives: either I'm plain stupid to see it or the story doesn't provide any explanation. Probably this story is not self-enclosing and the reader should be familiar with other works set in this world to fully understand it.

    16. Marco on said:

      This is the second short story set in the world of the Goddess War series I read without having read the main stories. I would recommend against it: I have the clear impression that I would enjoyed this novella more if I had read the trilogy first. This said the story is quite entertaining, even if the ending seems to require familiarity with the saga to be properly understood.

      Hmm. Kendare Blake? The author of my favoriteAnnaandGoddess Warseries? Writing a book about my favorite Greek goddess Artemis? [image error]

    18. Mairi on said:

      The story takes an unexpectedly, but well-done, dark turn at the very end. The concept of Greek gods in the modern world is appealing; but I haven't read any of Blake's other works, so I was missing some of the context that might help for understanding and appreciating the story.

    19. Sophie on said:

      I really enjoyed this Short Story. I probably would have liked a bit more about Artemis, but there was enough of a teaser that it had be going. I really enjoyed that it was linked to the Twilight of the Gods and gave more insight into Apollo and the beasts.

    20. Gabrielle Carolina on said:

      This short almost makes me wish Artemis had her own book within the Goddess Wars series.

    21. Shona on said:

      I'm not sure how this ties into the world of Antigoddess, but knowing how it ends just makes me sad. Not much here just an extended character study really

    22. Mariana on said:

      Quite dark for ya (as is expected for the Goddess War books) and it clears out what was Artemis' true death.

    23. Tiffany Lynn Kramer on said:

      Kendare Blake does it again. I've been meaning to finish reading this series and this short story with its dark, heartbreaking tones is the perfect incentive.

      I was very curious about what had happened to Artemis. I love the way this ended!
