The Princess of Sparta
Helen, in a split-second decision, marries her sister’s husband, King Agamemnon’s brother, whom she has never met, despite having the choice of any beau from the entire region, hoping to reunite with her beloved twin sister. As wife of the petulant and abusive Prince Menelaus of Mycenae, lusted over by all men, Helen awaits the day she will find a soul mate worthy of her eternal love, prophesied the night of her womanhood ritual. The light in her eyes is once again restored the moment Paris, cursed son and Ambassador Prince of Troy, sails into the Mycenaean harbor on a mission to take Mycenae into the hands of Troy.
Masterfully rewritten and pulling from one of the most memorable myths to come out of ancient Greece, the story of Helen of Sparta keeps true to its history. Archaeologist and author Aria Cunningham winds a beautiful love story around the events leading up to the Trojan War. Princess of Sparta reminds readers that even in the throes of a violent world people can be weakened by love, and will go to great lengths, even risking death, for the ones they love. I highly recommend reading this book and hope Cunningham has a sequel in the making!
