Name: Nobody's Princess
Author: Esther M. Friesner
Genre: Mythology
Rating:


She is beautiful, she is a princess, and Aphrodite is her favorite goddess, but something in Helen of Sparta just itches for more out of life. Not one to count on the gods—or her looks—to take care of her, Helen sets out to get what she wants with steely determination and a sassy attitude. That same attitude makes Helen a few enemies—such as the self-proclaimed "son of Zeus" Theseus—but it also intrigues, charms, and amuses those who become her friends, from the famed huntress Atalanta to the young priestess who is the Oracle of Delphi.

In Nobody's Princess, author Esther Friesner deftly weaves together history and myth as she takes a new look at the girl who will become Helen of Troy. The resulting story offers up adventure, humor, and a fresh and engaging heroine you cannot help but root for.(goodreads)


REVIEW:  

This book was AMAZING! i enjoyed seeing Helen grow up with her brothers and reading of her training even though she is a princess. I admire her for that, rebelling against society's norms and rules. Choosing to fight instead of drinking tea and making cloths. Specially doing both! I loved her meeting Atalanta and her story. Her trying to ride a horse and fighting along the guys! I cant wait for the next books!!This book is the first I have ever read dealing with Helen of Troy. I never really really liked her in the myths and legends. But after this book that has changed!

The Good: Action-packed. Funny. Fast-Paced.

The Bad: A little bit hard to believe this could remotely ever happen....
