I received a copy of Warriors, Witches, Women through NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.
Warriors, Witches, Women: Mythology’s Fiercest Females is everything the title promises, and more. This is a novel that collects dozens of famous mythological women and puts them all into one place. So whether you need a reference book or are simply curious about goddesses and lore, this is one worth checking out.
Kate Hodges did a wonderful job with this book. Not only did she organize it really well, but she went out of her way to bring in as many fierce and independent women as possible. I can honestly tell you that some of the warriors, witches, and goddesses that she pulled into this book I had never heard of before now. And I was fascinated to read more about them.
Hodges had the book divided into easy to follow (and reference) categories. You can probably make a good guess at those categories thanks to the title itself. It also made for easy reading, knowing thematically what was going to follow.
Another element I loved about this book was the inclusion of artwork. Each and every woman featured here had her own imagery included, but they were all drawn in a similar style. That is a fine line to balance on, and yet it was done nicely here.
I read Warriors, Witches, Women all in one read, and I have no regrets about that. Though I do think that I’ll sit down and reread it all at a slightly slower pace next time around. At first, I was just too eager to absorb as much information as possible. So feel free to take that as the proof needed to show how much I enjoyed this book.
