She is beautiful, she is a princess, and Aphrodite is her favorite goddess, but something in Helen of Sparta just itches for more out of life. Not one to count on the gods—or her looks—to take care of her, Helen sets out to get what she wants with steely determination and a sassy attitude. That same attitude makes Helen a few enemies—such as the self-proclaimed "son of Zeus" Theseus—but it also intrigues, charms, and amuses those who become her friends, from the famed huntress Atalanta to the young priestess who is the Oracle of Delphi.
The story about Helen of Sparta is fun, quick and sassy.
The story is told by Helen herself, from the time she was a baby to the time she was fourteen. This is the best way to learn more about Helen’s character, you really see the world true her eyes and how she truly feels about things. Helen is just as fierce full as i thought she would be at a young age and I love how Esther developed Helen’s character throughout the story.
The characters are great and enjoyable. Esther does a great job creating a story that’s full of great Greek mythology. If you are just like me and enjoy a historical fiction novel, you definitely going to love this one.
For Dutch Readers:

The cover is gorgeous. Just look at it. It’s mysterious in a way.
