For The Immortal

So than Hippolyta the revered ueen of the tribe For Hercules and his band of fighters pose a threat to her way of life – but also stir up painful memories that threaten to expose her deepest secretAs battle lines are drawn between the Greeks and the s both women soon learn the inevitable truth – in war sacrifices must be made; especially if they are to protect the ones they love most PRAISE FOR EMILY HAUSER'Hauser recreates one of the oldest tales in Greek myth with great skill and panache' The Times'Once in a while something comes along that's so utterly right so necessary for now that you wonder why nobody thought of it before Emily Hauser' I came to For the Immortal without having read the first two books in the series but that didn t matter because it is a standalone story I loved Hauser s recreation of the well known tale She tells it from an intriguing new perspective and that worked incredibly well The different narrators all had interesting and uniue voices and I found myself caught up in their personal dramas and decisions I particularly enjoyed the chapter lengths which made it easy to pick up the book and read the odd bit here and there when I had time Occasionally during the narrative passages my attention wavered but the action soon drew me back in Actually one of the things I found most enjoyable was the author s afterword in which she discusses her approach to recasting the myth Overall this is a good read for those who enjoy fairytale and myth retellings and I give it a solid 4 starsI received this book as a free eBook ARC via NetGalley
