there's been so many Greek retellings these days, and not all are written this fabulously. this had a fresh new twist and it was just so dang interesting. read it, I dare you.

Kendare Blake knows how to tell a story, and a pretty good one at that. Homeric knowledge of the Greek gods is not required, but it's nice to get the few winks/nods if you have. Characters and plot are the forefront of this novel, making it fairly fast-paced and compelling. Like Anna Dressed in Blood and Girl of Nightmares, there's plenty of gore, but none of it felt unnecessary. She also knows how to end a book well, especially since it's part of a projected series. I'll be back not because there's a cliff-hanger ending, but because her characters are compelling, as is the world only briefly sketched in Antigoddess. Recommended.
