I enjoyed the relationship between the main character and the Goddess mentioned. She is portrayed as being more "human," and relate-able than deities often are. She has her flaws and "human" traits, making her not so perfect, but still showing that Gods require and demand to be treated as if perfect, as well as showing that no matter the range of the possibility of the things they can do, some things shouldn't be done. How the main character behaves at the end is rather surprising, yet can also be seen if the reader keeps their mental eyes peeled. Enjoy everyone!
