The Seventh Pleiade is a fantasy story set around the myths of Atlantis. There is a lot of Greek mythology within the story of a group of Aerander, the heir to the throne. Aerander is involved with a boy from another kingdom. It’s an accepted practice during a boy’s teen years. But as the future king, he is expected to take a wife and produce heirs. His teenage tryst isn’t just something he can move in from, though. When a group of boys goes missing, a mystery unravels into a great story. There were parts that confused me, but I did enjoy where the story went. As soon as I saw the charts in the beginning of the book I knew it would be confusing and I might need to reread some parts in order to fully “get” the story. That did happen, but it was worth the time it took to enjoy the tale. The world building was very unique and creative even with the mythology entwined within the book. This isn’t a quick fluffy book that can be read in one sitting. It requires some thought and attention, but is well worth the time it takes to finish it. *I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.
