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.

It¿s definitely interesting to see into Maggie¿s back story. We get to see how everything started and it¿s an interesting look into the past.

The tenth novel in the Daughters of the Moon series is a departure from the regular storyline of Catty, Vanessa, Jimena, Tianna and Serena. Instead the story follows their mentor Maggie who is two thousand years old. She is an immortal who takes a potion at the full moon to restore her youth which is about to finally run out. She is due to pass on her role to another young woman (possibly one of the daughters?) and as her long life draws to a close she teels her story as a young woman in Athens called Penelope.She lives with her father and sister Taemestra. Her mother disappeared one day and there are stories that Zeus is Penelope's real father. One day three men arrive to visit her father and go to war with him against the Spartans. One of them is called Hector and him and Penelope instantly have a connection. Her younger and more beautiful sister is jealous and sets events in motion Penelope never suspected. Penelope is torn between her love for Hector and her desire to take her vows to the moon goddess Selene. There are evil forces at work trying to prevent her from following her destiny which she isn't sure of herself.I really enjoyed this and was interested to learn more about Maggie/Penelope and how she became immortal. I knew form previous books what happens to Hector and Chris, but it was good to have the gaps filled in and see how everyone got to their roles in the current storyline. I think I have guessed who her successor will be, but I defintiely feel there are more twists and turns for the story to take, especially to find out who Penelope's child will turn out to be...

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.
