The stories of the Trojan War heroines continue in Rise of Princes. Fans of Greek Mythology will love this adult series!
As the Trojan War rages on, the gods pit their chosen heroes against each other, fighting alongside them on blood-slicked battlefields. Amid the carnage and chaos, Achilles and Hektor rise to fame. Conquering and defending; at their whim the people of the Troad are freed or enslaved.
While the glory of battle belongs to the men…the heart of the Trojan War belongs to the women.
These brave and bold souls struggle to survive, armed only with their cunning wit. Scheming for vengeance. Traded as prizes of war and obsession. Aching to fill the crushing void within their hearts. Thrust into roles they must adjust to...or die. The battle scars of these heroines cut far deeper than the slice of any blade.
Sing Muse, sing the song of the rising princes...
Continue your journey into this brutally tragic and romantic tale of love, war, and immortal intervention TODAY!
INTERVIEW WITH THE AUTHOR:
Q: What made you want to write about Greek mythology and the Trojan War?
A: I’ve always imagined the human stories behind the larger than life mythological characters we’ve read about. With the Trojan War stories, I've come to see how vital the women's roles are and wanted to focus on their stories and sacrifices, because they are the ones who made it possible for the heroes to become who they were.
Q: Who are your favorite heroines in Rise of Princes?
A: We've met some fantastic characters so far...Hecuba, Leda, Clytemnestra, and Oenone. In ROP you'll get deeper into the stories of Deidamia and Briseis, the two women linked to Achilles. You'll also get to know Penelope, Andromache, and Helen on a different level.
Q: Why is the book called Rise of Princes, when you focus so much on the women?
A: Because the Trojan War is a huge part of the background of all the women's stories and what happens to them or because of them all ties back to the war. Book two carries us into the siege years where Achilles and Hektor are rising to power in their own right.
Q: Who do you think is the most misunderstood heroine in this sequel?
A: Helen. She left Sparta for a different life. A life she believed promised her freedom from her over-bearing father and tradition. Life in Troy was not what she expected...and when she realizes why she's there...well, it's tragic. She's tragic. A tragic heroine.
Q: What books are in the Homeric Chronicles series?
A: Song of Sacrifice and Rise of Princes are complete. I'm writing Rage of Queens and The White Island right now. I'm so excited for readers to discover how it all ends! I think the twists will even surprise readers who know what will happen. They might rethink everything…
Q: Which writers have influenced you most?
A: The ones whose stories keep me up way past my bedtime. J.R.R. Tolkien, Diana Gabaldon, George R.R. Martin, Steven DeKnight (creator of STARZ Spartacus). And of course, Homer.
*This series is intended for a mature audience due to war violence and sexual situations.
