About the Author
Desibookstagrammer, Instagram and Goodreads Review: "Loved how the story is plotted over such a grand scale; there are so many characters playing their part in this epic war & they are perfectly blended to give the reader different angles of the war."
Deborah Thompson, Goodreads Review: "...her books bring the story of Trojan war to life..."
Simone Hnath, Goodreads Review: "Ms Rhiannon still knows how to unravel a myth. She still knows how to make history ourstory, and exciting.
Elizabeth, Goodreads Review: "Janell Rhiannon has out done herself yet again. Rise of Princes is just as page turning as it's first installment. Deep into the Trojan war now, there is so much action. The battle scenes are intense the story pace is fast and exciting. Can't wait to get my hands on the third installment.
Emma Wallace, Goodreads Review: "What I especially love about Rhiannon's work is the fact I find myself learning so much about a world I already thought I knew extensively and I truly appreciate the intricate interweaving of all the overlapping stories in the Troy saga."
Stephanie, Goodreads Review: "I really loved how the story flowed perfectly over such a grand scale, there are so many people playing their part in this epic war and they are perfectly blended so the reader gets to experience the war from every angle, and let me just say that most if these tales are full of heartbreak and tragedy."
Brandon, Goodreads Review: "As with the first book in this series, the second is beautifully written. The characters continue to be intriguing, flawed, lustful. Each character is written so that you can understand their motivations in their battles and machinations. Odyseus continues to be my favorite character as I'm able to easily identify with his longing to return home to his wife."
Elena, Goodreads Review: "A great follow-up to Song of Sacrifice. I liked them both equally, and I'm glad to see that more books in the series are planned. I can't wait! Like in the first book in the series, Janell Rhiannon interweaves the most famous characters from the myth of Troy with lesser known figures and myths. Clytemnestra remains my favorite." --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

I already mentioned this in my recent review of the first book but again I loved the writing so so so so much. It really was beautiful. The writing is just so detailed and wonderful to read. I couldn't get enough of it. I just can't say anything negative about it.
I also loved reading about all the various characters, of course. There are quite a few but the author managed to write them all in such a uniquely way that it doesn't feel like too much like it sometimes can be with other books, if that makes sense.
My favorite characters were Briseis and Achilles, especialy Briseis. In almost any retelling of this story I just can't help but ship them even though I know it won't end well for them. I absolutely loved how Janell Rhiannon wrote them. They make my heart ache so much. Seriously. I also continue to love Odyseuss because he's so clever and still devoted to his wife.
Aside from some romance (which can be very heartbreaking) there's also a lot of action and battles, obviously. This is omething that I also highly enjoy reading about. Give me all the battles! I also feel like I should mention there's also a lot of tragedy. There's definitely no shying away from the tough subjects in this book, which I love.
Like I said before I absolutely can't wait to read book three. I think it's coming out in December. This is perfect because that's actually my birthday month. I'm really looking forward to the next part of the story!
Janell Rhiannon kills it with this series. It's one I highly recommend. 5 stars!
