My mother told me that men would speak about the Golden Age as a time of peace and happiness for all… However, the women of our age would tell a very different story…
Cronus, God of Gods, whose inheritance is the world. Among his possessions: women, imprisoned and fated to serve. The strong-minded Althea Lambros controls her own fate and lives to honor her dying mother’s plea to protect her two sisters at all costs. Althea’s journey toward crushing the tyranny has begun. It is a destiny foretold by the Fates. And she is following their visions.
On the southern isle of Crete, hidden among mortal women who have fled the Titans, is the Boy God, son of Cronus and believed dead. He shares Althea’s destiny to vanquish the Almighty—fate willing. Because Cronus has caught wind of the plot. He’s amassing his own forces against Althea’s righteous rebellion and all those who will no longer surrender or run. There will be war. If she’s to survive to write their history, the indomitable Althea must soar higher than any god. (Goodreads)
In February I was lucky enough to win a signed early copy of this book from the author and it is currently sitting on my March TBR. When it arrived I read the first few pages and I have to say that I enjoyed the bit that I read. The writing style was easy to read and there was excitement, fear, pain, love, a whole range of emotions within the first couple chapters. Personally, I’ve always had a love for mythology and ancient history so the greco-roman aspects of this book are a huge draw. I can easily see myself loving this title and am looking forward to reading it.
