Description

The mythology side of the story could have been a little stronger for me and the brutality of the games could have been heightened some more, but I think Woodman has created a fantastic stepping stone for the rest of the series. This story of hope, renewal, forgiveness and grace transcends circumstances to breathe new life into every one of us, if only we will listen.

However, a case of mistrust between Alanna’s fiancé Carolan and Lady Rhiannon results into her confessing her true identity to her closest friends. I was hoping for a really gruesome revenge story but I ended up wishing I didn’t bother reading it in the first place as I couldn’t stand any if the characters and the ending annoyed me so much. The book does continue on to tell a very detailed and graphic story about a couple girls and how they came to and overcame a plethora of abusive situations ranging from Child Prostitution, Sexual slavery, and severe domestic violence. Normally I would have read The Atlas Complex as soon as my copy was delivered, but I’ve seen mixed reviews about it. Suffice it to say, though, that instances like these were peppered throughout, often making me roll my eyes at the lazy storytelling that seemed to rely on nothing but a long string of deus ex machina moments.

Electa, our main character, is so violently ‘not like other girls’ that I wanted to scream, very loudly. Today the couple has joined the ranks of empty nesters, living in Tennessee near five of their adult children. Ideas of justice and defence are explored in the figures of Athena, Sekhmet and Kali, and the final chapter on compassion and salvation uncovers links between Isis, Mary, Tara and Guanyin. It is really difficult issues to deal with, but instead of running from this, Karen embraced this in her book, dealing with this heavy issues in an amazing way.

I realize that literary criticism may not be the appropriate lens through which to view faith-based writing, but there you have it, that's the tool I can't help using.Joshua Rivera from GQ wrote: "The Divine's story is unflinching and raw, and its art is quite possibly the most beautiful of any comic this year". Not because the writing was poor, or the story wasn't compelling, but because the truth of this story was hard to hear. The stakes are high, with her life, and her family’s hanging in the balance, Electa must win the tortured Prince’s heart whilst navigating her own.
