“Perhaps Zeus was king, but I was Spartan, a princess twice over, and queen of Athens besides. I knew my duty. And I would rule my own fate.”
Amalia Carosella, Helen of Sparta

“I did not want to worship gods as cruel as this—gods cruel enough to rape my mother after she objected to being deceived, or willing to waste the lives of hundreds, perhaps thousands of men in a useless war. I did not want to believe we could not be free.”
Amalia Carosella, Helen of Sparta

“Stay with me?” His fingers wound into my hair, and his arm tightened around me. “Always.”
Amalia Carosella, Helen of Sparta
