This was such a fun book, I loved that it was an untold tale of the Trojan wars. Some of my favorite genre is Greek Mythology, and this did not disappoint me. What was cool was that we got to see the Greek gods perspective during a few chapters what I liked about the Greek Gods was that they were portrayed as selfish and doing things for their desires. I also really liked the character Cassandra. The story itself was amazing and wonderfully written, I also liked that there were actual Greek words in the book. Overall I really enjoyed reading this and would recommend it to fans of mythology or the Trojan War.
5 out of 5 stars
Three thousand years ago a war took place where legends were born: Achilles, the greatest of the Greeks, and Hector, prince of Troy. Both men were made and destroyed by the war that shook the foundations of the ancient world. But what if there was more to the tale of these heroes than we know? How would the Trojan War have looked as seen through the eyes of its women? Krisayis, the ambitious, determined daughter of the High Priest of Troy, and Briseis, loyal and passionate princess of Pedasus, interweave their tales alongside Homer’s classic story of the rage of Achilles and the gods of Olympus. What follows is a breathtaking tale of love and revenge, destiny and the determination, as these two brave women, the heroes of the Trojan War, and the gods themselves come face to face in an epic battle that will decide the fate of Troy. A glorious debut full of passion and revenge, loyalty and betrayal, Emily Hauser breathes exhilarating new life into one of history’s greatest legends.
