From an unmissable new voice comes the powerful and epic story of mythology's darkest heroine
'Delightfully devastating' Bea Fitzgerald, author of Girl, Goddess, Queen
'A fiery and dramatic novel, starring one of mythology's most notorious women, this is a fascinating descent into darkness' Jennifer Saint, author of Ariadne
'Full of thwarted love and dark magic . . . Vivid and powerful, this is a book with teeth' Luna McNamara, author of Psyche and Eros
Shunned. Persecuted. Tormented.
Medea longs for a different life. Since childhood, she has been separated from her sister, shunned by her mother, and persecuted and tormented by her brother and father. All because of a unique and dangerous talent: witchcraft.
Fierce. Powerful. Sorceress.
But when a dashing young hero, Jason, arrives to claim the famed Golden Fleece that her father fiercely protects, Medea sees her opportunity for escape. Her offer to help Jason overcome the trials set by her father sets in motion a journey that will test every ounce of her strength, magic and loyalty; a journey that will see her battle monsters, dethrone kings and fall in love.
When faced with the ultimate betrayal, Medea is driven to an act of desperation so brutal it rips apart the lives of everyone involved...
