Book Two, The Child of the Erinyes series. A new myth from ancient Greece.

Category Finalist, Next Generation Indie Book Awards
Chaucer First Place Award for Historical Fiction, Ancient History Category

Goddess Athene's white-hot rage incinerates Callisti and inflames the seas. Crete is left in ruins.

Chrysaleon of Mycenae inherits the crown of an annihilated world.

As death looms closer, he stumbles upon an ancient prophecy foretelling the rise of the Thinara King. This ruler will possess unimaginable power and upend sacred traditions. Commandeering the title could save his life. But it could also destroy everything he has fought to achieve, and create an easy path for the brother he hates to step in and steal it all.

Will love transform him, or will he betray Aridela and defy the obligation of the labyrinth?

The epic Bronze Age tale continues as Athene tests her champions beyond endurance, beyond rescue, beyond salvation.

This is storytelling at its best. In the aftermath of a calamitous natural disaster, Aridela must find a way to rebuild. But the world is in chaos, and so is her heart. Torn between her physical attraction to one man and her almost spiritual connection to another, her loyalty yet remains to her country, under siege by the goddess Athena and by enemy nation that will conquer and subjugate her people if they can. Following her journey, I wept with her, I felt her sorrow, her desire, her desperation. This is storytelling at its best! The writing is elegant and fluid, the characters are alive and breathing; one can almost hear their hearts beating. My only frustration with this book is that I do not have the next in the series with which to follow it up. I couldn't put it down. Six stars! (But goodreads only gives me five, darn it!) I did receive an advance review copy of this, as the book is not yet published at the time of writing this review. The author did not apply to me for the review, however, I applied to her through my publisher, which is rather unconventional, especially as I'm not a professional reviewer, but that's how much I love her work.
