Goodreads Summary:

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.


My Review

Unfortunately, I fell victim to my insane college schedule and spent waaaaay too much time reading this book. This definitely had a negative impact on my enjoyment of Alpha Goddess. I wanted to get into it so bad, and I just couldn’t. Don’t get me wrong, the content is unique and is a different level of paranormal than I’m used to. However, despite this, I couldn’t help but feel like the plot was similar to previous stories I’ve read.

Alpha Goddess focuses around a few different perspectives, but particularly Sera. A girl whose world is about to be forever changed when she discovers who she truly is and how dangerous that makes her. The lore of the story was a little difficult to follow, but that’s because it was very new to me! There was definitely a learning curve to the story and when I wasn’t struggling to keep up with all the names, I was easily predicting the outcome of the major events.

Although there were plenty of developments throughout the story, I just couldn’t get hooked! The content was most definitely interesting and might have been more captivating to me if I had been able to finish the book in a more timely manner. Thus, I will not discourage readers from picking up Alpha Goddess. The story is different and the pace is quick!
