Publisher's Summary

Going to battle against a Titan in the war of all wars, one woman is making history in an epic novel of ancient Greece by Emily R. King, author of the Hundredth Queen series.

May Gaea be with you...

Althea Lambros is growing into her power, wrestling with a burdensome heritage, and unwilling to concede to Cronus, the redoubtable God of Gods. For that, Cronus is making good on his promise. Calling upon the elder Titans, he’s bringing down his wrath on the world. Suffering quakes, tempests, fire, and hail, mortals are paying in blood for the war of the gods. 

With the help of her friend Theo, Althea takes cover with her sisters, Bronte and Cleora. But they can’t hide forever. To mastermind the downfall of the evil king, Althea must recruit allies of her own before the aggrieved mortals surrender the sisters to Cronus in exchange for peace.

Is Althea formidable enough to win? It’ll take the help of her sisters and those willing to fight for the cause of the just. As the gods pick sides, Althea must divide heaven and earth to defeat the enemy and write the true history of the war to end all wars.

Critic Reviews

“Greek myths get a creative makeover with a refreshing female perspective…the strong female characters and enticing mix of romance and adventure make this a winner.”Publishers Weekly

“In her action-packed novel with flawed and powerful characters, King gives the Lambros sisters uplifting emotional arcs as they discover their extended family…King’s feminist retelling broadens myth with family, fury, and power.”Library Journal

Amazing story

The only reason i finished this book was because a friend of mine encouraged me too. I loved the story line but the narration was almost too much. If you like super intense narrators then you’ll enjoy this but she definitely wasn’t my cup of tea

Still don't love the narrator

I really enjoyed the book/series, but at the same time I am left a bit bereft at the ending. It is very bittersweet and doesn't feel weighty enough or complete. There were many times in the book that I questioned decisions that were made. There was also a ridiculous amount of standing around while people were being attacked and/or disarmed. The final thing that irritated me was the lack of people telling it like it was. Sometimes, especially in dire circumstances, you need the absolute truth told. Irregardless of feelings. It could have been better. These are some dang strong women and I'm not sure if the story was worthy of them.
