2 out of 5 stars
SNYOPSIS FROM GOODREADS:
The Huntresses of Artemis must obey two rules: never disobey the goddess, and never fall in love. After being rescued from a harrowing life as an Oracle of Delphi, Kahina is glad to be a part of the Hunt; living among a group of female warriors gives her a chance to reclaim her strength, even while her prophetic powers linger. But when a routine mission goes awry, Kahina breaks the first rule in order to save the legendary huntress Atalanta.
To earn back Artemis’s favor, Kahina must complete a dangerous task in the kingdom of Arkadia— where the king’s daughter is revealed to be none other than Atalanta. Still reeling from her disastrous quest and her father’s insistence on marriage, Atalanta isn’t sure what to make of Kahina. As her connection to Atalanta deepens, Kahina finds herself in danger of breaking Artemis’ second rule.
She helps Atalanta devise a dangerous game to avoid marriage, and word spreads throughout Greece, attracting suitors willing to tempt fate to go up against Atalanta in a race for her hand. But when the men responsible for both the girls’ dark pasts arrive, the game turns deadly.

MY REVIEW OF Outrun the Wind:
Thank you to Flux for sending me an ARC of Outrun the Wind!
Fantasy – Mythology – Young Adult
Outrun the Wind was an interesting book about mythological characters. BUT I honestly thought that I would enjoy it more than I did. The plot was slow in advancing, the characters were lacking, and as a whole I just didn’t enjoy the story.
The story starts off and it just doesn’t flow well. I felt as if there were a lot of things that I was missing and the transitions weren’t very smooth.
I gave this book a two out of five stars because I did enjoy the twist on mythology and the setting of Greece.
I thought that the romance was a little unnecessary and forced.
I also didn’t really enjoy the way that the men were portrayed in this book. The majority of them were ‘bad guys’ and were out to get the female characters.
All in all, this wasn’t really the book for me.
Thanks for stopping by and reading this book review!
