"An excellent addition to graphic novel and Greek mythology collections."—School Library Journal, starred review
"O'Connor offers a portrait of the Wild Goddess of the Hunt as probably the last of the Olympians you'd want to cross." —Kirkus
"O’Connor’s cinematic artwork is an enthusiastic vehicle for these tales, with plenty of action and an expressive, strong deity at its center."—Booklist
