Bring Down the Sun

Bring Down the Sun by Judith Tarr

What was this book about?

She was born the daughter of a god – destined to do good things. The Mother has decided that she must meet the mate that she has chosen for her and that she will bear a son that will rule all.

Of course things are just not that easy – there are many that want to stop her. Some desire the continuation of the Mother’s rule. They know that this son will destroy the group that continues to worship her. Others want control of this ever powerful soon-to-be born man.

She must work to protect him and fulfill her destiny.

What did you like/dislike about the book?

If you like mythology made to be a little more “realistic” then you will like this book. Time passes quickly and you can predict many of the things that are going to happen (which makes sense considering you probably heard some part of the story at one time or another in some fashion).

In general it is an enjoyable read. I don’t know that it is my style necessarily but others may like it.

What genre would you consider this?
