Nobody’s Goddess by Amy McNulty is set in a really strange world. The men have to wear masks until the woman they love (Goddess) loves them back. If someone sees their face they die. And every woman has a man who considers her his Goddess. Eventually.
Some of them have to wait a long time. Like the main character. Noll is Nobody’s Goddess, for a long time anyway. When she does become someones goddess, the story gets even more interesting.
I read this book in two sittings. It would have been one, but my husband insisted it was bedtime. I wanted to find out exactly how this situation came to be.
Very interesting twist at the end. Story isn’t over yet either, and I’m looking forward to the other books in the series.
About the book:
In a village of masked men, magic compels each man to love only one woman and to follow the commands of his “goddess” without question. A woman may reject the only man who will love her if she pleases, but she will be alone forever. And a man must stay masked until his goddess returns his love—and if she can’t or won’t, he remains masked forever.
Seventeen-year-old Noll isn’t in the mood to celebrate. Her childhood friends have paired off and her closest companion, Jurij, found his goddess in Noll’s own sister. Desperate to find a way to break this ancient spell, Noll instead discovers why no man has ever chosen her.
Thus begins a dangerous game between the choice of woman versus the magic of man. And the stakes are no less than freedom and happiness, life and death—and neither is willing to lose.
