Ithaca In Tochter des Himmels gibt es wieder zwei Erz hlstr nge Zum einen geht es um Admete, Tochter des K nigs von Tiryns, die sich zu den en aufmacht, wo sie ein Heilmittel f r ihren schwer erkrankten Bruder Alexander vermutet Begleitet wird sie von Alkides, welcher versucht seine 12 Aufgaben zu erf llen, um fortan als Herkules bekannt zu sein und Unsterblichkeit zu erlangen.Der zweite Teil befasst sich mit Hippolyta, der K nigin der en Sie versuch ihrem Volk eine gute K nigin zu sein, muss sich aber immer wieder gegen die Griechen behaupten.Die Geschichten dieser beiden Frauen sind wieder sehr interessant und auch gut durchdacht F r mich war der Anfang nicht ganz so toll wie die ersten beiden B cher Ich wusste nicht genau wo es hingehen sollte und Herkules war mir ziemlich unsympathisch So waren die ersten beiden Drittel des Buches wie immer gut geschrieben und interessant Das letzte Drittel hat mich dann aber wieder sehr beeindruckt und gefesselt Pl tzlich gibt es n mlich einen Zeitsprung und wir befinden uns mit Admete und Hippolyta mitten im trojanischen Krieg Wir erfa I have to reiterate my For the Winner review where was this quality of writing in For the Most Beautiful The latter two books in this trilogy are better by far than the first book, and I can only assume that Hauser s debut novel was severely curtailed by the publishing house, who gave it a distinctly frothy, juvenile spin For the Winner and For the Immortal are thankfully much interesting For the Immortal returns to a dual protagonist set up, but this time it s well founded on Hippolyta, queen of the s, and Admete Admete is such a minor character in myth that honestly I had to be reminded of who she was, but I think Hauser was right when she says in her author s note that the concept of retrieving Hippolyta s war belt simply as a shiny trinket for Admete feels like a half baked idea, and not terribly compelling Hauser has elaborated upon that unspectacular beginning to create a stronger motivation for the quest, as well as increasing Admete s role in it I didn t object to the author portraying a darker Hercules although I wish he d been named Herakles, since this was a Greek world novel , as there s plenty in the character s ancient mythos to suggest a darker side, but I was frankly disappointed that it is just let go at the end I felt that his twisting, his descent into a darker personality, could ve provided of a crisis I ve been a huge fan of the Golden Apple trilogy for a while, so you can imagine my delight when I was invited onto the For The Immortal blog tour.Emily really has a fantastic way of making the Greek legends come to life in this fantastic book The reader really feels like they have been transported to ancient Greece, watching events unfold I could almost smell the herbs that Admete used for her healing and smell the sweat, fear and blood from the fierce battles.The story is told from the point of view of two very strong and determined woman from very different worlds Hippolyta is a fierce warrior queen who shows great skills on the battlefield but has a big heart when it comes to her tribe, particularly the children Admete is a princess but works hard at being a healer which she really enjoys She too has a big heart when it comes to her family and it is her desire to help her I ll brother that makes her go on Hercules quest I actually liked both characters which made it hard to decide whose side I was on as I wanted them both to succeed This is a fast paced and gripping story that intrigued me straight away I was instantly hook I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review Alexander, heir of Tiryns, is dying His sister Admete is a skillful healer, but her knowledge can t save him, so she persuades her father to let her join Hercules on one of his labours they will travel to the s, the legendary female warriors, in search of a cure The Greek are seen with suspect by the s, but queen Hippolyta gives them hospitality The encounter will have consequences both on Admete s and Hippolyta s lives, and will be the start of an immortal story.When I requested the book I had no idea it was the third in a trilogy, but luckily it read much like a stand alone The stories are connected, but I think you don t miss that much reading one without the others That being said, I will definitely check out the previous novels because I really enjoyed this one.I wasn t familiar with the myth, so the story kept me interested There were some slow parts, but for the most part I enjoyed myself I liked both Admete s and Hippolyta s storylines They were distinct characters who found themselves in different situations, but they faced similar challenges, the main one being struggling in a male dominated world I was glad there wasn t romance in this book, because the male characters were all awful I was constantly mad at them, but their behaviour was in accordance with the time
