I am enjoying this trend of taking women from Greek mythology and showing them in a new light. Clytemntra was seen as a villain but this story shows more behind that. I did think this one was a little slow in the beginning and the lapses of time seemed to not develop growth in the characters, but overall I found this an enjoyable story. Clytemnestra was Spartan trained to fight from a young age and hardened into the tough woman that Sparta needed to continue to remain strong. Unfortunately the rest of the world saw women as property and Clytemnestra was betrayed over and over again. It was nice to see some familiar names in this story and also some I didn’t already know. It was also nice to read about Greek mythology without appearances by the gods. This story is about betrayal, revenge, power, and whether it is better to be forgotten or remembered for how much you were feared.
