Book Review: Sacred Bride

Prince Odysseus and the daemon Bria must penetrate the haunted caverns beneath Dodona, seeking a way to save their doomed nation, Achaea, from the might of Troy.
The startling revelation that follows will set Odysseus on his most daunting mission yet, as he seeks to reunite the divided Achaean kingdoms before the rapacious Trojans strike. His journey will pit him against wrathful gods and legendary heroes, in a deadly contest for the hand of Helen of Sparta, the daughter of Zeus, upon whose choice the fate of Achaea rests…

I received a digital advanced reader copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I really didn’t love this as much as I did the first two but at the same time I did love it because it felt familiar. I think my problem is this book really read like two novellas rather than a novel of its own. The story seemed to be two different stories put together, one about Clytemnestra and one about Helen. 

This book was also a bit more violent than the previous books, but it still kept with the same atmosphere. The characters were also very consistent. The plot was well crafted as always. I really love this authors writing style. 

I do really hope we get at least one more book in this series. I feel we still have so much unresolved in this story. I really love the way this world was built up. It is just so intriguing. The modern touch to the classic style is now a new favorite of mine. 

Thank you to the author, the publisher, and NetGalley for letting me review this title.
