Thaleia’s destiny is opposed by the village priest, Diokles, who claims to speak for the gods, when in truth all he craves is gold, power, and total control over Delphi. Even when the old priest thinks he’s killed Thaleia, the gods return her to the living. Revived, she discovers her connection to the gods and uses this power to protect her home, her country, and all those she loves.
Thanks to Hollywood, most know the story of King Leonidas and that battle of the 300 at Thermopylae. And good King Leonidas has a role in this story–intriguing within itself–but Gail Strickland takes the story further, challenging the people of Delphi and all of Greece, to rely on the power given to a fifteen-year-old girl as their last hope of driving back King Xerxes and his army.
Thaleia has a wonderful voice, filled with the usual concerns of a teenager, but also blessed with courage and a hunger to know who she is. Night of Pan is a coming of age story and what Thaleia discovers will delight and enthrall readers. It’s right there on Apollo’s temple: Know Thyself.
Gail Strickland spent countless hours studying the Greek culture, the language, as well as the mythology, and she has woven that knowledge into this magical story. Not preachy or textbook dry, but told as Aristotle would, standing in an amphitheater, words traveling on warm breezes tickling sensitive ears, the tale thrilling young and old alike.
Night of Pan appeals to everyone . . . as all great stories do. Thaleia is a heroine for the ages and we are fortunate that we can continue to follow her in the Oracle of Delphi Trilogy.
Thaleia is different. She hears, sees, and feels things other people don't ... All the time. She never realizes how special she is until she decides to thwart her "destiny" of marrying the man her parents chose for her. That night everything changes and she begins on her journey of self awareness. Why does she have these powers? What do they mean? How will she escape the role thrust upon her by tradition to live up to her full potential?
This is an amazing young adult novel of mythology and history! I loved it and wish to than the author for ACTUALLY doing her research and keeping the Gods purely Greek!!! I am so sick of people thinking Greek and Roman Gods are interchangeable when they really aren't! They have similarities but they are not the same. Many Roman Gods were based on the Greek Gods but that is no excuse for mistaking them. Thank you Ms. Strickland for keeping your Pantheon pure when writing this awesome book! This is a classic coming of age story but done large :) Intrigue and suspense play a huge role alongside all the action and adventure. I can't wait to read more and find out what happens next!
***This series is suitable for young adult through adult readers who like life in their historical fiction :)
As the story progresses, Thaleia comes to learn who she is and what her role is as the Oracle of Delphi. But realizing her potential and fulfilling her destiny will not be easy when an imposter Oracle is already established. Saving Delphi seems nearly impossible when she must prove that she is the true Oracle and find a way to defeat the power-hungry priest, Diokles, who is determined to stop Thaleia at all costs.
Night of Pan is a suspenseful and intriguing book that will appeal to a broad audience, especially those interested in Greek mythology. Author Gail Strickland has skillfully woven mythology and history into an engaging coming of age novel that is sure to connect with young readers on many levels.
