Review: American Goddesses by Gary R. Henry

American Goddesses by Gary R. Henry

When two small-town women find themselves with nearly unlimited powers of mind and body, their lives get complicated. Things turn nasty as a shadowy organization attempts to use Megan and Trish for their own evil ends, and destroy them, their town and the USA in the process.

My Thoughts: 
I bought this book after reading a review on a blog that made it sound really good, but I can't remember where I read it. The story sounded interesting. Two ordinary women participate in a psychological experiment and end up with super powers. (They can fly and walk through fire, among other things. How cool is that?) Having these powers affects their lives and their relationships. Then someone tries to use them for evil. The story is fast paced with plenty of action and moves right along. The main characters, Megan and Trish, were fantastic but there were some other great characters as well.  I loved this one.

My Rating: *****
Steam Factor: !!!
*Notes: There is rape, but the story is not too graphic overall.

My Source: purchased
