    I have to reiterate my For the Winner review where was this quality of writing in For the Most Beautiful The latter two books in this trilogy are better by far than the first book, and I can only assume that Hauser s debut novel was severely curtailed by the publishing house, who gave it a distinctly frothy

    I ve been a huge fan of the Golden Apple trilogy for a while, so you can imagine my delight when I was invited onto the For The Immortal blog tour.Emily really has a fantastic way of making the Greek legends come to life in this fantastic book The reader really feels like they have been transported to ancient Greece, watching ev

    I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review Alexander, heir of Tiryns, is dying His sister Admete is a skillful healer, but her knowledge can t save him, so she persuades her father to let her join Hercules on one of his labours they will travel to the s, the legendary female warriors, in search of a cure The Gr

    Mich hat dieser Abschlussband der Trilogie leider nicht ganz berzeugen k nnen, auch wenn er einen Bogen zu den anderen Romanen wirft und so vieles erst verst ndlich wird daf r waren mir die beiden Erz hlstr nge zu weit auseinander und die G tter des Olymps zu wenig pr sent.Diesmal geht es um Admete, die das Volk der en aufsucht, um Kr uter gegen das Fieber ihres schwerkranken
