Product Description

About the Author

Athena McCormick is a dedicated novelist, poet and blogger who has been inventing stories since before she knew her letters and writing them down since before she learnt to read. Her writing is mostly fiction, but she has been known to write the odd opinion piece here and there. In addition to writing fiction, Athena's passions include poetry, photography and graphic design. Athena currently lives in the U.K. She keeps in close contact with her parents, six siblings and their dog, Loki. Athena succinctly describes her writing addiction: "Trying to go a week without writing would, for me, be something like trying to go a week without oxygen; I'd be dead after five minutes."

Aigaion Girl is completely different from anything I've ever read before. It tells the story of Apple, a girl who is half-human, half-demon and has grown up as an outsider because of her demon heritage. Apple's feelings of separation lead her to become a self-imposed loner and when she starts to notice the signs of the biblical apocalypse, she almost doesn't do anything about it. Apple eventually joins forces with an angel named Camael to put an end to the end of the world before it's too late.

It's a nice, short read that is simultaneously cynical, sensitive and humorous and it's unique. I love the characters' different perspectives, how each character tells things in their own way and their own voice and how their individual stories come together to make one cohesive piece.

Even though it's not full of crazy plot twists, there is absolutely nothing predictable about this story. You never quite know where the story is going or what's going to happen next, but you're always eager to find out.

I found this a wonderful mixture with beautiful prose, carefree slang, clever cynicism and innocent truth. It's written in multiple voices in a way that lets you get to know the characters personally. I actually laughed out loud, and shed a tear or two while reading this - who knew the end of the world would turn out to be so much fun?

Nicely Done! April 13 2010

Through a brilliant combination of cynicism and innocence, Athena McCormick manages to craft an uplifting story of the end of the world. It is written in first person, but from the perspective of each individual character, each with his/her own voice, giving the reader a glimpse into the souls (where applicable) of the main players.

While reading this I laughed out loud more than once, shed the odd tear, and was strangely uplifted.

In many ways a lighthearted look at the apocalypse with random startling pieces of beautiful prose that almost border on literature.
