Publisher's Summary

The beguiling story of the Queen of Mount Olympus, told by Jennifer Saint, the bestselling author of ATALANTA, ELEKTRA and ARIADNE.

From Jennifer Saint, the bestselling author of ATALANTA (UK, Sunday Times, April 2023), ELEKTRA (UK, Sunday Times, May 2022) and ARIADNE (UK, Sunday Times, April 2021), comes the captivating story of Greek mythology's most famous wife.

When the immortal goddess Hera helps her brother Zeus to overthrow their tyrannical father, the ancient Titan Cronos, she dreams of ruling the world at his side.

But as they establish their reign on Mount Olympus, Hera begins to see another side to Zeus, a side just as ruthless and cruel as Cronos was.

She was clearly born to rule, but does that mean perpetuating a cycle of violence and cruelty that has existed since the dawn of time?

Will assuming her power mean that Hera loses herself or can she find a way to forge a better world?
