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.
Such an interesting take on the origins of the Greek gods! Perfect for fans of mythology and feminist tales, this story has an intriguing plot and cast of characters. This was my first book by this author, and I am excited for the upcoming sequel.
Cronus is the god of gods and he rules the world. His many possessions include women, who are imprisoned and destined to serve him. Althea Lambros is a fierce, female character who controls her own fate. She vows to honor her mother’s dying wish to protect her sisters at all costs. Althea begins her journey to bring down the tyranny that has begun, as foretold by the Fates as she follows their visions.
On the southern isle of Crete, the boy god, son of Cronus, who is believed to be dead, is hidden among mortal women escaping the Titans. The boy god shares Althea’s destiny to annihilate the Almighty. Cronus hears of the plot and begins amassing a force against Althea and the rebels who no longer want to run. War is coming, and Althea must soar higher than a god to write their history.
I really enjoyed this story and seeing women take the helm! Add this one to your TBR!
