"The storyline is interesting. I always love to learn a little more about mythological characters and ancient civilizations. This book had a little of both in it. I also loved the underlying theme of being careful what you wish for. Jordan is not thrilled with some of the consequences. This is a cute and fun book to read. The Goddess in the book is a love Goddess and content reflects her position in Egyptian mythology. There is some swearing and description of Egyptian modesty issues (which is historically correct)." - Bookworm Lisa
"This is such a fun read and very suitable for even the youngest teens and more mature pre-teens. Jordan shows that a girl can be true to herself while still having adventure and learns that the most important things in life are friends and family. This is a fresh take on the paranormal adventures so common in YA stories and I am so glad that it is something I can recommend to even pre-teens. There is just enough tension and mystery to keep you reading through while also providing a lesson on growing up. If you like the Magic in Manhattan series by Sarah Mlynowski or the Dead Is series by Marlene Perez, you will enjoy this one as well!" - Bookhounds
"This was an awesome story that once I started reading, I could not put it down. It moved along at a good pace and had a storyline and characters that kept me entertained for an entire evening, and I could not believe it when I was finished. This book is definitely worth checking out. An awesome read." - Joy Whitesides
"It was fun and will appeal to a lot of readers, especially the younger YA set. If you're looking for a cute story with high-school antics and a heavy dose of paranormal laced with mythology, No More Goddesses by Kim Baccellia is right up your alley." - Swoony Boys
"Love the books that tease me with what could happen and then everything changes. What I love about this book is the mystery and the unknown, very exciting book. Giving the book an overall 3 out 5 stars. The book has a little bit of everything in the story, and the adventure that carries us through they are very good." - Luana Sirbu Blogger
"Very teen, and a refreshing respite from those heavier doom 'n' gloom books." - Reflected Light Reviews
"This was an interesting story with a unique plot. It's aimed for younger teen readers and the writing style shows this. The story was intriguing and I enjoyed learning about the Egyptian mythology that was woven into the book." - A Dream Within A Dream
