Moment of honesty - I am a sucker for anything Greek mythology. It's a go-to of mine, that draws me in and refuses to let go,so when Diana offered me a free copy, I was eager to jump on the opportunity, and I am very glad that I did!

I don't really know where to start with this review, except to say that I loved it. It's one of those rare books where my tea grew cold, dinner boiled over and dirty dishes piled up in the sink until I'd finished reading it.
