Overview

Maggie is running out of time on this earth. And before she can name her successor, she reflects on the incredible, age-old journey that brought her to where she is. As a girl in ancient Athens, her father was a great warrior and leader of men. However, it was Maggie, known then as Penelope, who chose to battle the greatest enemy of all-the Atrox. After seeing an innocent man succumb to the Atrox and his shadowy followers, she takes a vow to help cleanse the world of its evil. But in doing so, she may have to forego the love of the great soldier, Hector, and lose her sister to the dark side.

Editorial Reviews

VOYA

edited and with an introduction by William G. Holzberger Since the first selection of George Santayana's letters was published in 1955, shortly after his death, many more letters have been located. The Works of George Santayana, Volume V,
brings together a total of 3,081 letters. The volume is divided chronologically into eight books of roughly comparable length. Book One covers the longest period of time, in effect spanning Santayana's correspondence from the 1880s through most of the first decade of the twentieth century. It illuminates Santayana's life from the age of nineteen until well into his middle years, when he had established his professional career as a full professor at Harvard.In his introduction, William
Holzberger summarizes their significance as follows: "We find in Santayana's letters not only a distillation of his philosophy but also a multitude of new perspectives on the published work. The responses to his correspondents are filled with spontaneous comments on and restatements of his fundamental philosophical ideas and principles. Because Santayana's philosophy was not for him a thing apart, but rather the foundation of his existence, the letters indicate the ways in which his entire life was permeated and directed by that philosophy."

Near the end, wow was that sad. Anyway, this one was really good as it focuses on Maggie past and the present. And that ending. This series is one of my favorites.

This book started out great, I loved the ancient Greece setting & the history about Maggie and the beginning of her time with the Daughters. It was so cool to just kind of jump out of the story for a few moments and learn some history behind the series. The book was really interesting, but I don't know if it was a lack of interest in the book or Ewing's imagination running wild to the point where I couldn't catch up but I had trouble getting through this towards the end. It might be that there are just so many books in the series that tend to blend together and drag on. Personally, in my opinion I think the series excellence would be better if instead of the 13 books it were cut down to large books and therefore less of them. However, it is what it is. Like I said, I loved learning of the history of the Atrox and finally seeing Maggie (Penelope) in action and hearing of her own personal history. These stories are perfect for younge adults. I am a 21 yr old re-reading the books because I read all the way up to 12 and just recently bought 13 so I decided to re-read all of them so I would know what was going on. At this point, I'm longing for a little more with them. They're very PG when it comes to the romance and action and sometimes the things Ewing is describing are hard to visualize and therefore hard to follow. The characters are very well developed however and easy to fall in love with and identify with. Great for young girls interested in just trying to get away in fiction and meet girls with similar, and not so similar, problems.

Maggie knows that her time is slowly coming to an end since her promise in stopping the Atrox and helping/guiding the Daughters of the Moon. We are then shown Maggie's past life and of course the ending was sad.

Lynn Ewing became one of my favorite authors like ::snaps fingers:: that. She is so talented! i have a little notebook that has a lot of phrases she has used in her books. i myself write short stories, but they are nothing, not even close, to what she writes. i can't wait to read the next in her series. This book was one of her best. i very much enjoyed reading about Penelope and her life in ancient Greece. i loved it a lot, considering i am a Greecian myself. i hope all of her books stay as fresh and funky as they are now.

Lynne Ewing quickly became one of my favorite authors shortly after I finished the first book. This one was excellent, yet again. SOILER!THEORY! My guess is Jimena, if you look at page two, but if not her my only other theory would be Catty's mom to replace Maggie.

I loved this book, as I do all the others in the series, however I did not like it because it was about Maggie, and I personally like the Daughters Of the Moon more. However this was a very intresting book, it explains a lot about some of the things they mention in some of the other books.
