Description

This "powerful, fresh, and unflinching" reimagining from the award-winning author of the Penelope trilogy breathes life into ancient myth and gives voice to the women who stand defiant in a world ruled by ruthless men (Jennifer Saint).

On the isle of Ithaca, queen Penelope maintains a delicate balance of power. Many years ago, her husband Odysseus sailed to war with Troy and never came home. In his absence, Penelope uses all her cunning to keep the peace—a peace that is shattered by the return of Orestes, King of Mycenae, and his sister Elektra.

Orestes' hands are stained with his mother's blood. Not so long ago, the son of Agamemnon took Queen Clytemnestra's life on Ithaca's sands. Now, wracked with guilt, he is slowly losing his mind. But a king cannot be seen to be weak, and Elektra has brought him to Ithaca to keep him safe from the ambitious men of Mycenae.

Penelope knows destruction will follow in his wake as surely as the furies circle him. His uncle Menelaus, the battle-hungry king of Sparta, longs for Orestes' throne—and if he can seize it, no one will be safe from his violent whims.

Trapped between two mad kings, Penelope fights to keep her home from being crushed by a war that stretches from Mycenae and Sparta to the summit of Mount Olympus itself. Her only allies are Elektra, desperate to protect her brother, and Helen of Troy, Menelaus' wife. And watching over them all is the goddess Aphrodite, who has plans of her own.

Each woman has a secret. And their secrets will shape the world.

Love it!

I thoroughly enjoyed the first book in this series, Ithaca, and this one is even better. The pacing in Ithaca was a bit uneven, but House of Odysseus clips along at a good pace all the way through. In theory, you could listen to this book without having listened to Ithaca but I would not recommend it. House of Odysseus will be much more enjoyable for you if you listen to Ithaca first. The characters that carry through from the first book to this one feel like old friends in House of Odysseus and you will appreciate them more if you know their back story. Aphrodite is the in-story narrator this time around and she contributes to the telling of the story as Hera did in Ithaca. Adding the perspective of Greek goddesses adds some laugh out loud moments to the often times serious goings on. The ending of this book is perfect. The storyline is wrapped up nicely and there is a huge teaser at the end for the final book of this trilogy which is due for release in June 2024. Finally, Catrin Walker-Booth shines ones again as the audiobook narrator. I highly recommend this book.
