More About the Author

Katarina Soul is a Greek/American born in the USA after her maternal grandmother escaped the Turkish invasions of the 1900's and stowed away on a slave ship bound for America. Katarina is an independent author of several E-books in Amazon's Kindle store: Priestess of the Aegean trilogy is historical fiction set in Ancient Greece in 500BC during the Persian wars.

Priestess of the Aegean-Book One: Fortuna's Magic profiles the adolescent rebellion of a slave girl who escapes Chios with her little dog, Spartacus, in order to harvest the occult mandrake roots necessary to see into the future. While on Lesbos, Fortuna meets Sappho and learns about the three forms of love: eros, agape and philia and distinguishes their differences in her tender relationships with Stavros, Ahmed, and Demetrius.

Priestess of the Aegean--Book Two: The Etheric Realm portrays the mystical realm where spirit guides live and coach Fortuna on matters of her heart; can she successfully escape her post as Oracle of Delphi to unite with her beloved Demetrius, an island away? When a mystic topaz turns her invisible,and an ornery falcon appears, she gets swept into The Etheric Realm. Without her sacred herbs, can Fortuna materialize to unite with her beloved before the Persians annihilate Greek democracy and thrust her back into slavery?

Priestess of the Aegean--Book Three: The Elixir of Life is the culmination of the Priestess trilogy wherein five Alchemists congregate on Delos to work their magic personally, and politically. Will Demetrius' and Fortuna's passion for each other anger Apollo, and foil all their hard work to save Greece? Will Ahmed find the recipe for the Elixir of Life in time to show Fortuna who her real parents are?

Besides authoring, Katarina Soul is a lifelong naturopathic physician and meta-physician who believes in the occult ability to see the future before it happens.

Priestess of the Aegean takes place at a crucial time in ancient Greek history where the budding notion of democracy triumphed in spite of Persian war, famine, and widespread Aegean slavery. With the help of magic and alchemy, love does conquer all!

I really enjoyed this book. I read it as part of my book club. It challenged and intrigued me! I learned a lot about myself. I was able to relate to "Fortuna" in my own life. I was impressed with Katherine's knowledge about natural medicine and greek culture. As a psychiatric provider, it challenged me to think beyond traditional medicines and treatments. I would encourage others to read it for sure.

Pretty good historical fiction with the Ancient Gods. Fortuna is a great character and a very strong female character. I do not recommend making the wine in real life though.

Fortuna, the protagonist may be a slave or she may not - the author isn't sure of what exactly defines a slave. Fortuna reads, is an herbalist, knows a variety of magic spells and can't quite decide what to do with herself. She travels from the island of Chios to Lesbos where she meets Sappho (a bit of a literary stretch since Sappho died about 20 years before the timing of the novel) and opens a cafe. Then back to Chios and onto mainland Greece... never quite sure of what she wants but constantly professing love (agape, eros and philia) and having visions of disastrous warfare. In the meantime, Darius and the Persian forces move in, occupying Chios and aiming for Athens.
The events are confusing, the timing inconsistent, and the characters are not quite up to snuff. E.g.: exactly who does Fortuna belong to? Stavros, who found her as an infant and insists on keeping and raising her, or Paros, his son, who constantly wants to sell her or marry her off, or at least make her work in the malachite mine? And why would Paros have more of a say than head-of-household and senior breadwinner Stavros? And how can Fortuna, creature of love, be comfortable and even like a man like Paros, who whips his exhausted slaves until they bleed? Oh, and exhausting slaves and then whipping them is shows a bad business sense as well as cruelty ...
I think the book could do with an extensive edit to weed out inconsistencies, straighten out timelines and flesh out characters. It is the first of a three-volume series. I'll wait for a serious edit before reading on.
