about

The Huntresses of Artemis must obey two rules: never disobey the goddess, and never fall in love. After being rescued from a harrowing life as an Oracle of Delphi, Kahina is glad to be a part of the Hunt; living among a group of female warriors gives her a chance to reclaim her strength. But when a routine mission goes awry, Kahina breaks the first rule in order to save the legendary huntress Atalanta.

To earn back Artemis's favor, Kahina must complete a dangerous task in the kingdom of Arkadia-where the king's daughter is revealed to be none other than Atalanta. Still reeling from her disastrous quest and her father's insistence on marriage, Atalanta isn't sure what to make of Kahina.
As her connection to Atalanta deepens, Kahina finds herself in danger of breaking Artemis's second rule. She helps Atalanta devise a dangerous game to avoid marriage, and word spreads throughout Greece, attracting suitors to go up against Atalanta in a race for her hand. But when the men responsible for both the girls' dark pasts arrive, the game turns deadly.

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A For the Lover of Books Review *Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for providing a copy in exchange for a review. My opinions are honest and my own. I’m a huge mythology nerd, and I especially love Greek mythology. So when I saw this book on Netgalley featuring the Huntresses of Artemis, I had to request it. Outrun the Wind is nice and easy read. While I feel like some stuff was a little underdeveloped, but it’s perfect for if you just want a super quick book. I had no idea that Atlanta was an actual mythological figure until I read the author’s note and looked it up afterwards. Atlanta’s story is so interesting, and I really wish I had heard of it before now. It was also super interesting to look back and see what the author decided to include and how they decided to incorporate the elements of the myth. I’m not sure how I feel about Apollo being the antagonist. Yes, Artemis and Apollo are very different, but they don’t tend to hate each other in Greek mythology as much as they do here. The Olympians fight with each other a ton, and Artemis and Apollo are definitely both short-tempered, but it just felt out of character. I felt like our two main characters, Atlanta and Kahina, were a little underdeveloped. They both had POV chapters, and I tend to ignore the names at the top of chapters, so I would start reading and be unable to tell whose POV I was reading from for most of the chapter. Their voices were practically identical. They’re both very different characters, so their chapters should not have read like they’re the same person. However, I did really like the romance between them. It’s sort of hate-to-love (one hates the other, but the other person is oblivious to said hatred), and its slow burn to the point where my brain was screaming “and now kiss” for the last half of the book. I think Atlanta and Kahina had a lot of chemistry. As a sort of side note, if I see anyone say that the Ancient Greeks weren’t gay, I will throw my Classics textbook at them and proceed to lecture them. Overall, I had some issues with Outrun the Wind, but I think it’s a nice quick read. It has therefore earned 3 out of 5 stars.
