Review

An Amazon Best Book of the Month: Science Fiction & Fantasy

“Sumptuous…King ably weaves Greek mythology into a cat-and-mouse spectacle. Readers will cheer for Althea as she upholds her family’s honor and fights belligerent gods with determination and confidence. This is a winner.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Sharp prose and smart characters…King (Hundredth Queen series) takes a fresh look at the Greek pantheon to create a clamor for the next book of this new series.” Library Journal --This text refers to the paperback edition.

From the Publisher

Sometimes, the tales we know aren’t the whole story, and much depends on one’s own point of view. In bestselling author Emily R. King’s new fantasy adventure, Wings of Fury, she endeavors to set the record straight with the “real” story of the gods and goddesses of ancient Greece.

Althea and her sisters were raised in the temple of Gaea after their mother’s death—a death Althea rightfully lays at the feet of Cronus, god-king of the land. Althea’s lot seems to be the same as the other women of ancient Greece: subservient to the men who rule. But when a meeting with the Fates reveals her true potential, Althea takes her (and the world’s) destiny into her own hands.

We cheer for Althea and her allies as they fight to rewrite history. And that history is richer for the voices of the underrepresented. After all, as King tells us, “A tale is told that only women know. For when the men of the Golden Age passed down their stories of victory and sacrifice, they did not think to ask the women theirs.”

- Adrienne Procaccini, Editor

1.0 out of 5 stars ... what’s a polite way of saying ‘utter garbage’?
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 20 April 2021
When I say the only thing I enjoyed about this book was the amount that I and my friend made fun of it.
It claims a great deal of research, but all it does is try to use specific terminology to cover the fact that Emily King knows very little about the Greek mythological world. It is poorly written, with just a weird amount of inconsistencies.

There’s also a very heavy handed build up to a giant lesbian orgy that just doesn’t happen. I thought this was targeted at maybe young teenagers and that was why I thought this was so out of place and weird.

Honestly, there is almost no logic to this book and is just insanely ridiculous.
