Can’t Wait Wednesday : Elektra by Jennifer Saint

Can't Wait Wednesday

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that was originally created by Breaking the Spine.  Unfortunately Breaking the Spine are no longer hosting so I’m now linking my posts up to Wishful Endings Can’t Wait Wednesday. Don’t forget to stop over, link up and check out what books everyone else is waiting for.  If you want to take part, basically, every Wednesday, we highlight a book that we’re really looking forward to.  This week my book is : Elektra by Jennifer Saint.  I was so excited to see this book due for publication next year – I really enjoyed Ariadne and can’t wait for more. Here’s the description:

ElektraThe House of Atreus is cursed. A bloodline tainted by a generational cycle of violence and vengeance. This is the story of three women, their fates inextricably tied to this curse, and the fickle nature of men and gods.

Clytemnestra
The sister of Helen, wife of Agamemnon – her hopes of averting the curse are dashed when her sister is taken to Troy by the feckless Paris. Her husband raises a great army against them, and determines to win, whatever the cost.

Cassandra
Princess of Troy, and cursed by Apollo to see the future but never to be believed when she speaks of it. She is powerless in her knowledge that the city will fall.

Elektra
The youngest daughter of Clytemnestra and Agamemnon, Elektra is horrified by the bloodletting of her kin. But, can she escape the curse, or is her own destiny also bound by violence?

Expected publication : April 2022

    Gorgeous! I hadn’t heard of this one, or even Ariadne. I’ll have to keep an eye out for what you think 😀

      At the moment all these greek myth retellings are really working for me. I loved Miller’s Achilles book and Pat Barker’s two recent retellings that focus on the women’s side of the story. I also really enjoyed The Women of Troy and Ariadne. I’m on a winning streak which I hope continues.

    After Miller’s Circe my old love for Greek myths have been rekindled, and this book is certainly one I will WANT to read… Thanks for sharing! 🙂

    I remember when you reviewed Ariadne. Wow, this cover is stunning😁

      Yes, I love the cover, it makes me think of some of the old films like Jason and the Argonauts for some reason.
