HERA: BOOK ONE OF THE GODDESS CHRONICLES
Fire Raven Press, 2010
Hera is living a fairly sedate life in a small village on the island of Atlantis, until her friend, Artemis, becomes injured in a hunting accident, and it becomes evident that she has untapped powers. Hera's life changes rapidly, and she learns, that her parents have been keeping secrets about her heritage. To further complicate matters, Hera meets and develops a crush on Zeus, who is rather power hungry.
HERA: BOOK ONE OF THE GODDESS CHRONICLES shows a different prospective of Greek mythology, than the male centric versions, that this reader is used to. This book is told from Hera's point of view,and while at first, she seemed something of a brat, this book shows her growth and maturation into an admirable character. I enjoyed Ms. Longo's take on Greek mythology and look forward to the next book in the series. It was great to get the female side of things, because let's face it, females aren't usually portrayed in a very good light in Greek mythology, especially Hera.
Note: I was sent this book in return for an impartial review.
