Overview

Crete: A place of magic, of mystery, where violence and sacrifice meet courage and hope.
Aridela: Wrapped in legend, beloved of the people. An extraordinary woman who dances with bulls.
The north wind brings a swift ship and two brothers who plot Crete's overthrow. Desire for this woman will propel their long rivalry into hatred so murderous it hurtles all three into an unimaginable future, and sparks the immortal rage of the Erinyes.
A woman of keen instinct and unshakeable loyalty. A proud warrior prince and his wounded half-brother. Glory, passion, treachery and conspiracy on the grandest scale.
What seems the end is only the beginning.

Meet the Author

Rebecca Lochlann fell in love with the stories and myths of the ancient Greeks at a very early age. She honed the craft of writing through formal education, marriage, and the rearing of two children. While building the series, she ran a successful writing/editing company, helping authors ready their work for publication and providing hundreds of articles on demand for marketing use and teaching seminars.

"The Child of the Erinyes" series is mythic historical fiction that begins in the Bronze Age and winds up in the near future.

Writing Influences? Patricia A. McKillip, Margaret Atwood, Anita Diamant, Peter S. Beagle, Anne Rice, and Yevgeny Zamyatin, to name a few.

About fifteen years were spent researching the Bronze Age segments of the series, and encompassed rare historical documents, mythology, archaeology, ancient writing, ancient religions, and volcanology. For Rebecca, a rather obsessed historian, the research, the struggle for perfection, never ends.

"The Year-god’s Daughter" is her first novel, and Book One of "The Child of the Erinyes" Series. "The Thinara King" will follow in a few months. All of Rebecca’s books will be published in paperback and eBook forms. The paperback should be ready in November, 2011.

Though she cannot remember actually living in the Bronze Age, the Middle Ages, the Victorian era, and so on, she believes in the ability to find a way through the labyrinth of time, and that deities will sometimes speak to us in dreams and visions, gently prompting us to tell their forgotten stories.

Who knows? It could make a difference.
