    Ancient Crete recreated in gorgeous flowing prose

    This is storytelling at its best. In the aftermath of a calamitous natural disaster, Aridela must find a way to rebuild. But the world is in chaos, and so is her heart. Torn between her physical attraction to one man and her almost spiritual connection to another, her loyalty yet remains to her country, under siege by the goddess Athena and by enemy nation that will conquer and subjugate her people if they can. Following her journey, I wept with her, I felt her sorrow, her desire, her desperation. This is storytelling at its best! The writing is elegant and fluid, the characters are alive and breathing; one can almost hear their hearts beating. My only frustration with this book is that I do not have the next in the series with which to follow it up. I couldn't put it down. Six stars! (But goodreads only gives me five, darn it!) I did receive an advance review copy of this, as the book is not yet published at the time of writing this review. The author did not apply to me for the review, however, I applied to her through my publisher, which is rather unconventional, especially as I'm not a professional reviewer, but that's how much I love her work.
