"An enthralling, sensual, tragic tale packed with historical detail." -Kirkus Reviews of Medea
From Mount Olympus, Aphrodite, the goddess of love, yawned. Even perfection can be tedious.
"My Lord," she called to Apollo, "Sun God and brother. Let us play a game with mortals-my power against yours."
And so Cassandra, the golden-haired princess cursed with the gift of prophecy, and Diomenes, the Achaean with the healing hands, become puppets of the gods. Their passions are thwarted, their loves betrayed, their gifts rendered useless for the sake of a wager between the immortals.
Will they find each other in the light of the burning city? Can their love survive the machinations of malicious gods and men?
Australian Kerry Greenwood holds degrees in English and Law. Cassandra is the second of her three Delphic Women mysteries to be published in the U.S.
