Waterstones Says

The author of Ariadne returns with another spellbinding reimagining of Greek myth, this time focused on the origins of the Trojan War and the dreadful curse blighting the House of Atreus.  

Signed Edition

A standard edition is available here

The House of Atreus is cursed. A bloodline tainted by a generational cycle of violence and vengeance. This is the story of three women, their fates inextricably tied to this curse, and the fickle nature of men and gods.

Clytemnestra

The sister of Helen, wife of Agamemnon - her hopes of averting the curse are dashed when her sister is taken to Troy by the feckless Paris. Her husband raises a great army against them, and determines to win, whatever the cost.

Cassandra

Princess of Troy, and cursed by Apollo to see the future but never to be believed when she speaks of it. She is powerless in her knowledge that the city will fall.

Elektra

The youngest daughter of Clytemnestra and Agamemnon, Elektra is horrified by the bloodletting of her kin. But, can she escape the curse, or is her own destiny also bound by violence?

The House of Atreus. Mighty. Powerful. Smart. Cursed.

“Sensational retelling - even better than Ariadne!”

I loved Ariadne but this is even better: a passionate, heartbreaking retelling of some of the most famous women in Greek mythology.

“Poignant, if underwhelming”

Jennifer Saint’s retelling of the Trojan war is exactly that: a retelling. Despite adopting an interesting viewpoint through the eyes of Clytemnestra, Cassandra, and Elektra, much of the novel’s events are skimmed... More
