Blurb from Goodreads:

Strikes. Starvation. Riots. 

Britain is at breaking-point and Aura is blind to it all. The Cult of Artemis is the only home she’s ever known. Enclosed in its luxury lifestyle, the unrest gripping the country seems to belong to a distant world. Her dream is to serve the Goddess and taking a vow of chastity and obedience seems a small price to pay. But days before Aura is due to be initiated as a Priestess, she meets Aiden, the rebellious son of a cult insider, whose radical ideas and unsettling charm force Aura to question everything and everyone she knows.

My Review:

*I received a copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thanks to Bloomsbury Publishing Plc (UK&ANZ) and Laura Powell*

2.5/5 stars

Aura is a Handmaiden and soon-to-be Priestess in the Cult of Artemis and lives a life of luxury. 
The rest of Britain is a different story. 
After meeting Aiden, Aura starts to question if a life serving the Goddess is what she thought it was.

This was an easy read that wasn't particularly gripping but I liked the Greek aspect. 
The plot and the characters were okay and I thought Aura was an alright protagonist.

Overall this was an okay read.
