Book Description

March 22 2010
All Apple has ever wanted is to be left alone - but having twelve inch horns sticking out of her head hasn't exactly made that easy. And to make matters worse, she's started to notice the signs; the world is going to end... Now she and her best frienemy, the angel Camael, are torn between doing the right thing and hiding under a rock until it's all over. Meanwhile, Apple is being bedeviled on all sides, by her angel friend, her human mother, her demon father and Moloch, a general of Hell's army, who wants to recruit her for his own unknown reasons.

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."

5.0 out of 5 stars Like Nothing I've Ever Read May 17 2010
By Anna
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant and Fun! July 26 2011
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?

5.0 out of 5 stars 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.
