Review: Alpha Goddess by Amalie Howard

In Serjana Caelum’s world, gods exist. So do goddesses. Sera knows this because she is one of them. A secret long concealed by her parents, Sera is Lakshmi reborn, the human avatar of an immortal Indian goddess rumored to control all the planes of existence. Marked by the sigils of both heaven and hell, Sera’s avatar is meant to bring balance to the mortal world, but all she creates is chaos. A chaos that Azrath, the Asura Lord of Death, hopes to use to unleash hell on earth.

Torn between reconciling her past and present, Sera must figure out how to stop Azrath before the Mortal Realm is destroyed. But trust doesn’t come easy in a world fissured by lies and betrayal. Her best friend Kyle is hiding his own dark secrets, and her mysterious new neighbor, Devendra, seems to know a lot more than he’s telling. Struggling between her opposing halves and her attraction to the boys tied to each of them, Sera must become the goddess she was meant to be, or risk failing, which means sacrificing the world she was born to protect.

Actual review/rant:

Before I start with everything, I would like to thank Netgalley and Sky Pony Press for providing me a digital copy of this book.

The writing felt too clunky and forced. I didn’t care for any of the cookie-cutter characters, their names, their inconsistent appearance descriptions and personalities. The premise was a nice idea, but the execution fell flat. It felt like something out of a fanfic.

I’m sorry, i’m not finishing this.

(The only good thing about this book is the heroine’s adorable younger brother, and the markings the girl on the cover has got going on.)
