Athine Versus: The BeginningAthine Versus: The Beginning by Shannon McRoberts

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is an interesting twist on old mythology featuring goddesses more than the gods. This story is centered around two strong female characters that hold the fate of their world in their hands. Set in a world where immortals not only play an important role but also live along side humans.

Overall this was a very engaging read. It certainly held my attention from the very begining. I loved the flow of the book, as well as the characters and settings. The only issue I had was that it seemed as though these immortal beings were a bit gullible and easily manipulated by the evil scorceress. Otherwise, I really enjoyed this short read. It was full of action, cool weapons, and interesting characters. If you like mythology you should read this one.

Erosion of the Heart by Shannon McRoberts
genre: Poetry
114 pages
This is a collective book of poetry by Shannon McRoberts. This includes both new poetry and all of the poems found in “REMORDERE” and “Poetry for the Chronically Heart Broken and Depressed”. All of these titles were previously only available in paper back, but now they are available here for Kindle!

Shannon McRoberts was born in Kentucky and currently resides there with her family. She began writing novellas late in her career after fulfilling a college dream of publishing her poetry book.
When not writing or working at her day job she enjoys creating fantasy art in Poser; this helps spur on her writing about fantasy worlds. Shannon is also an avid reader enjoying many books that feature strong female leads. It comes as no surprise that when she writes that her characters are also strong female leads
Shannon’s books are not long at all as she feels that something should be left up to the reader; no you don’t really need to know that the walls were blue on the fourth floor to enjoy a story!
If she has any spare time Shannon enjoys playing things like World of Warcraft, Elder Scroll games, Guild Wars, Rift, and Second Life. However, she often doesn’t have any spare time between work, family, and her art/writing hobbies.
