I bought and read The Thinara King after reading the The Year-God’s Daughter, Book 1 of The Child of the Erinyes series. These books feature world building at its best.
This book continues Aridela’s story. Again, Rebecca Lochlann shows her research and writing abilities. Fantastic.
It’s not easy for Aridela with her belief that the goddess, Athene, watches her every move while she faces life-changing challenges both politically and in love. With Athene buckling the earth and destroying Aridela’s island, emotional and physical agony, death and war, she grows into a great character. The book is real a page-turner and while you devour the story, you might shed a tear or two but don’t let that sway you from journeying into the world of ancient Crete.
I am now going to live in the world of the third book in the Child of Erinyes series In the Moon of Asterion.
