The Curse of Hera by Jeffrey MacLeod (The Three Sisters #1)
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 6.2 MB
Overview: Three heroines, their mythical beauty so exquisite that even the Gods are overcome with desire; Three souls cursed eternally to be reincarnated into lives of misery; Three sisters born into the 21st Century; Finally, they have a chance of redemption. But even this is part of an Olympian’s game.
The Gods are dangerously divided – some will assist, some will oppose. Zeus, Apollo, Hera, Athena – all have chosen their sides. And if the Three Sisters fail, another Trojan war could engulf humanity.
Accompanied by their father, Ilia, Danae and Leda embark upon their desperate quest to redeem their souls. Aided by divine gifts and guidance, they range across the ruins of the ancient world, from Rome and Syracuse to Paestum, from Mount Olympus and Pompeii to the Palace of King Minos in Crete, exploring the present and the past, in search of the fabled relics that may aid them.
The Three Sisters is not only an epic adventure set against the backdrop of the World of Greek and Roman Mythology, it is also an educational Odyssey for lovers of travel, classical history, legends and art. But above all, it is a tale of paternal devotion and sororal unity, and the bonds of familial love that cannot be broken – not even by the wrath of the Gods.
