There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The story itself was great, and despite my issues with the dialog, the characters were well developed in other ways. It felt very reminiscent of Xena for obvious reasons, and honestly that was a huge part of the appeal for me. I liked that dynamic.
I always want more obvious racial diversity. 500 BC Greece had tons a brown and black people - if not predominantly - there was a huge amount of trade and migration happening out of Africa as well as from the rest of Asia into of the European peninsula, particularly through the regions this books speak of. Europe is small and nestled on the edge of Asia that is quite near Africa...two regions of the world that were far more advanced during that era - particularly in travel and trade. There could have been a few more poc folks described, at the very least in the background. Other than "we don't like the Persians". Insert eyeroll. Historical fiction that erases or ignores the existence of entire races or people isn't all that historical.
Overall, it was a good fun read. Other than the dialog thing, my complaints are typical of the genres (hist. Fic, fantasy/mythology, romance) but still relevant to my reading experience.
Dislikes: violent imagery (especially involving women) but it’s a book grounded in Greek mythos what did I expect!??
Despite this l can’t wait to get into the next book in the series.
I went as far until I knew Greek mythology was not worth all the depravity. I’m sure is was too far.

Lovers of Greek/Roman history and mythology will enjoy this romance with strong leads in Skylar and Princess Alexis and fully fleshed out supporting characters. A believable storyline that drags you in with clear descriptions, romance, drama, angst, blood, battle, grit and grime. Enough said. Looking forward to book 2.
Kudos to Ms. Harrison. I highly recommend with 5 stars.
