Publisher's Summary

In this thrilling reimagining of ancient Greek mythology, a headstrong girl does whatever it takes to rise up and become the most powerful fighter her people have ever seen.

Seventeen-year-old Daphne has spent her entire life honing her body and mind into that of a warrior, hoping to be accepted by the unyielding people of ancient Sparta. But an unexpected encounter with the goddess Artemis - who holds Daphne's brother's fate in her hands - upends the life she's worked so hard to build. Nine mysterious items have been stolen from Mount Olympus, and if Daphne cannot find them, the gods' waning powers will fade away, the mortal world will descend into chaos, and her brother's life will be forfeit.

Guided by Artemis' twin - the handsome and entirely too-self-assured god Apollo - Daphne's journey will take her from the labyrinth of the Minotaur to the riddle-spinning Sphinx of Thebes, team her up with mythological legends such as Theseus and Hippolyta of the Amazons, and pit her against the gods themselves.

A reinterpretation of the classic Greek myth of Daphne and Apollo, Daughter of Sparta by debut author Claire Andrews turns the traditionally male-dominated mythology we know into a heart-pounding and empowering female-led adventure.

A book full of love, loss, betrayal & redemption

Extremely enjoyable book! I could feel myself being pulled into the world of gods, titans & a fearlessly passionate and strong female lead in Daphne. It's definitely a book that once you start, you will not want to put down!

Couldn’t get enough

I was a little hesitant about this book after reading some of the reviews. I feel like the low scores were totally unfounded. The characters were well developed and the world was believable. The story and action flowed naturally and overall, this book was worth my time.
