This story features other deities of the Greek Pantheon, along with their distinct features concisely explained for any readers unfamiliar with their roles and personalities. Some background information about ancient Greek culture and polytheism is also included, providing some fun and casually educational tidbits that further tickle the imagination. The Greek alphabet at the beginning of each chapter gives the story a more immersive feel, with meaningfully chosen quotes used to precede each chapter, further lending greater depth to the central text.
Skilfully told, the plot contains lush descriptions that are all at once immersive and interesting, the many deities featured throughout are given depth and distinct personalities, and their characters are built up at a very nice pace so that it is very easy to empathize or relate to them despite their immortal/deific status.
A soft criticism is that there are some spelling errors, misused words, or punctuation missing throughout some areas in the chapters that, were they to be corrected, would improve readability even further.
Overall, however, quite an enjoyable read, and one that draws readers in and sparks a hungering for the next chapter as this story also has excellent pacing, with emotional cliffhangers and vivid scenes that capture readers as BlueRose_712 cleverly weaves a tale Arachne would be impressed with.
