Overview

He became a god. Her story was forgotten.

From the shore of a frozen steppe, an outcast hunter embarks for the otherworld to ask his ancestors how to bring the mammoth back to the fields of sedge.

In a shining, island kingdom of wonders, the daughter of a high priest fights for her claim to wealth and power after her father is assassinated by the king.

Together they will build an empire recalled as an ancient legend and a cautionary tale. But how did he become a god while she became a mere footnote in history?

Poseidon & Cleito is the engrossing first book of a fantasy trilogy of myth and legend exploring the rise of the lost civilization of Atlantis. In the best traditions of an epic journey, one man's struggle to discover his place in the world takes him across perilous seas into the epicenter of political strife in a foreign land. But a legend is not made of deeds alone... Fans of Guy Gavriel Kay's historical fantasy and David Gemmell's Troy series will enjoy this fantasy novel as it sets out to re-imagine the inception of a Greek myth.

Review:

"Poseidon is a mighty barbarian leader, and Cleito's a commendably strong woman with a ruthless streak. Alternating between Poseidon's and Cleito's points of view also gives the story a wonderful counterpoint while illuminating two very separate cultures.... A fresh twist on an old sea myth, complete with magic, intrigue, and plenty of old-school adventures." - KIRKUS REVIEW

Editorial Reviews

Margaret Fisk
"The story is well written and the cast interesting, while the complexity of the political relationships, especially with the uncle, are quite well drawn."
