Avocado | 12 comments Hi everyone! Just a quick question. Does anybody know where I can find some good historical fiction/fantasy involving Greek/Roman mythology? (Zeus, Dionysis/Bacchus, etc.). I also love Norse mythology as well. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks! :)

I have read the book Waiting for Odysseusand it was really good. It's a retelling of The Odyssey as told from the points of view from the women: Penelope, Circe, Athena, and Eurycliea.

Also, just remembered Ithaka and Troy both are very good with just little touches of romance, but not like cheesey fluffy stuff. Both include gods/goddesses as characters, especialy Troy.
