A gripping historical drama—the origin of Greek mythology’s Medusa is uniquely explored and reimagined in this allegorical work of historical fiction that takes us back to Ancient Greece during the rise of the Mycenaeans.
In 1650 BC, King Oceanus, a self-proclaimed lord of the sea, arrives with his soldiers on the shore of Tiryns and begins a struggle for power and dominance.
Thais, the Tiryns chieftain’s daughter, is caught between her father’s wish for peace without bloodshed, and the senior councilman’s desire to wage war. Yet the biggest threat to the people of Tiryns is not the soldiers in the plains but the growing division within the city.
Seeing no other option to end the pending war, Thais’ mother strikes a bargain with their Mother Goddess, trading her life for her daughter’s future. Thais is left to discover what her mother bargained for while lies, deceit, and secrets propel her and all of her people into one epic struggle for survival.
If you like to read stories about redemption, perseverance, and the power of courage and kindness, then you will love this historical saga of a Tiryns woman behind the myth of Medusa in this standalone installment of the Ancient Legends series.
