Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Due to a lifelong fascination with Ancient Greek mythology, Jennifer Saint read Classical Studies at King’s College, London. She spent the next thirteen years as an English teacher, sharing a love of literature and creative writing with her students. Ariadne is her first novel, and she is working on another retelling of an ancient myth for her second, revolving around Clytemnestra and her daughter Electra. --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

Review

A Most Anticipated Book (Bustle, Buzzfeed, PopSugar, Goodreads)
IndieNext Pick

Beautifully written and nuanced, Ariadne explores the bonds between women and their epic quest for agency in patriarchal Greek society.”
BuzzFeed

"Circe fans would do well to take note."
Bustle

If you loved Madeline Miller’s Circe, then you have to check out Ariadne by Jennifer Saint.”
PopSugar

“Saint’s immersive novel thrusts the reader straight into the heart of Greek mythology with this wonderful reimagining of the story of Ariadne.”
The Independent (UK)

“A lyrical, insightful re-telling.”
The Daily Mail

“Energetic and compelling.”
The Times (UK)

“Captivating…Saint’s mesmerizingly beautiful prose makes Ariadne a fascinating read.”
The Nerd Daily

“An illuminating read.”
Woman & Home

Relevant and revelatory.”
Stylist (UK)

“A beautiful epic…In a world ruled by temperamental, petulant gods, Ariadne is a shining beacon of female strength and courage―making this a story that’s impossible to forget.”
―CultureFly (UK)

Enchanting…Saint expertly highlights how often the women of this world pay the price for the actions of the men around them. Lovers of mythology should snap this up.”
Publishers Weekly

Complex―and bold…Fans of Madeline Miller's Circe will enjoy this faithful retelling that centers the often-forgotten women of Greek myth.”
Booklist

"Ariadne is a shimmering tapestry of two sisters bound by deceit and the shadows of family history. One marries a hero, the other a god. As their lives criss-cross through girlhood and womanhood, the secrets that their husbands keep become a monstrous backdrop to their relationship. With a fresh voice and keen insight, Saint adds flesh and bone to an ancient myth, drawing the reader into an uneasy world of ever-afters."
―Yangsze Choo, New York Times bestselling author of The Night Tiger

“An ancient story of love and sisterhood reimagined, Jennifer Saint's Ariadne is a truly masterful debut―compulsive, absorbing and lyrical. Saint breathes new life into the forgotten women of Greek mythology with a novel that's both incredibly absorbing, and full of heart.” ―Katie Lowe, author of The Furies

5.0 out of 5 stars Astonishing
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on June 1, 2021
I absolutely adored this book and am encouraging everyone I know to buy a copy. It is richly detailed, lyrical and immersive. From the very first page, you are transported to Ancient Greece. You can smell the sea and feel the heat. It is one of my all time favourites and I can’t wait for Electra to come out.
