Atalanta:

Review

A stunning retelling filled with breathtaking adventureAtalanta brings to life a heroine who stands tall among the ancient gods and heroes of legend. — Sue Lynn Tan, Sunday Times bestselling author of DAUGHTER OF THE MOON GODDESS

Jennifer Saint deftly draws the reader into the legends of Atalanta, swift huntress and favorite of Artemis, bringing the world of ancient Greece alive. The detail and description is lush: you can hear the rustle of the green leaves and taste the salty spray of the sea as the Argo rides forth on its quest. A story of adventure and love against all odds, this is an ancient tale limned with gold. — Luna McNamara, author of PSYCHE AND EROS

Absolutely beautiful. This is a retelling that fully inhabits the magical realm of myth while losing none of its human heart. The way Jennifer Saint dealt with the ending was absolutely inspired – staying true to the mythology yet giving it an emotional twist that felt completely true to the heroine she had created. Atalanta is a lyrical, exciting and deeply poignant tale of one woman’s remarkable life – and I cannot wait to read it again. — Elodie Harper, author of THE WOLF DEN and THE HOUSE WITH THE GOLDEN DOOR

Through the eyes of a strong and unbending heroine, Atalanta weaves together some of the most exciting myths: the Argonauts’ quest, Hypsipyle and the women of Lemnos, Hippomenes’s footrace. Beautifully written and crafted with magic, this is an unforgettable retelling. — Costanza Casati, author of CLYTEMNESTRA
