Staff Reviews

Nikita Gill's stunning new collection imagines the birth of classic Greek gods alongside their lives in the modern world. Stunning, powerful, and feminist, with some descriptions so lush and vivid that I, for lack of a better phrase, want to eat them. My copy is marked with favorite poems and passages; I'll certainly be returning to this again.

— Nicole


Bestselling poet, writer, and Instagram sensation Nikita Gill returns with a collection of poetry and prose retelling the legends of the Goddesses, both great and small, in their own words.

With lyrical prose and striking verse, beloved poet Nikita Gill (Fierce FairytalesWild Embers) uses the history of Ancient Greece and beyond to explore and share the stories of the mothers, warriors, creators, survivors, and destroyers who shook the world. In pieces that burn with empathy and admiration for these women, Gill unearths the power and glory of the very foundations of mythology and culture that have been too-often ignored or pushed aside. 

Complete with beautiful hand-drawn illustrations, Gill's poetry and stories weave old and forgotten tales of might and love into an empowering collection for the modern woman.

A New York Times Book Review New & Noteworthy Pick

"Powerful...we all grew up to the sounds of sweet bedtime tales, captivated by the stories of Gods, monsters, princes and distressed damsels....Indeed, these heroines aren’t distressed, they’re depressed—and they need someone to give them a voice. That person is Gill. Vanity Fair

"This empowering collection sheds light on women who are often misunderstood and is a piece of 'modern feminst magic.'" Book Riot
