I'm ofcourse a huge fan of mythological retellings, especially those about the women whom the original myths forgot about or told stories about them in very negative terms. So, I've been enjoying the recent surge in these feminist retellings of myths and I'm very excited to see a new one in the mix.

This book starts off in a very interesting way, because I know nothing much about Clytemnestra's life before she married Agamemnon, so I liked getting to know the kind of young women she was as well as her relationship with her siblings. I also never realized she had another husband first, and the way this first impression ends, I'm now even more eager to get to know that part of her story and how she eventually ended up with Agamemnon.
