Waterstones Says

In poetry, prose and picture, the multi-talented Nikita Gill takes us on a whirlwind tour of classical Greece, elucidating the stories of the women who dominated their age.

Empowering life lessons from myths and monsters. Wonder at Medusa's potent venom, Circe's fierce sorcery and Athena rising up over Olympus, as Nikita Gill majestically explores the untold stories of the life bringers, warriors, creators, survivors and destroyers that shook the world - the great Greek Goddesses. Vividly re-imagined and beautifully illustrated, step into an ancient world transformed by modern feminist magic.

'I watch Girl become Goddess and the metamorphosis is more magnificent than anything I have ever known.'

MEDIA REVIEWS

Fun, illuminating and will leave you exploring the original legends from a new perspective ... this book is the perfect gift for all the women in your life - Stylist

Nikita Gill's poetry excels in its exploration of womanhood - The Independent

Whether you’re completely clued up on Greek mythology or are a newcomer, Nikita Gill outlines the tales of Medusa, Circe, and Athena, to name a few, in stunningly beautiful prose. This will be one of the most entertaining history lessons you’ve ever had. - Bustle

Nikita’s words are as powerful as they are beautiful. Her poems mix ideas that are both ancient and timeless, and somehow she makes them urgent. Her voice is one of the most compelling, compassionate and creative in contemporary literature. She’s the writer we all need to read right now – she’s challenging a fearful era with real love. - Daisy Buchanan

This empowering collection sheds light on women who are often misunderstood and is a piece of “modern feminist magic.” - BOOKRIOT

“Aesthetically pleasing but confused content”

This book is without question visually stunning. The artwork and some of the language is lovely. But.. I found the layout weird, I don’t feel I’ve got a sense of the goddesses, gods or the stories here just lots of... More
