Elektra tells the stories of three women as each battles to forge her own destiny. Jennifer Saint explores how suffering is passed down generations in this compelling novel, told in rich and evocative prose. A truly immersive read.
Completely spellbinding. The story sweeps over you like a shimmering dream. Beautifully written, cinematic in its scope and highly compelling; I flew through its pages and missed it immensely when it was over.
Elektra makes the world of Mycenaean Greece feel alive again. In Jennifer Saint's prose you can hear the songs of the poets, feel the floors beneath your feet, smell the wood burning in the fire and experience the story of these three very different women as if you are there. A compelling retelling of ancient legacies, betrayal and the whims of the gods.
The thing that is most gorgeous about this book is the writing.
This book is profoundly moving, full of beautiful touches which made the story feel fresh without losing any of the magic of its classical setting. I absolutely loved it.
