    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 muchinteresting For the Immortal returns to a dual protagonist set up

    Dieses Buch rundet die Trilogie wirklich grandios ab Auch wenn die Namen der en teils echte Herausforderung sind Es hat einfach riesigen Spa gemacht der enk nigin Hippolyta und der Halbe Admete auf ihren Wegen zu folgen Beide wachsen einem ziemlich schnell ans Herz und man fiebert wieder unentwegt mit Speziell in diesem Teil finde ich die Sicht der Frauen sehr gelungen, da sie ein ganz anderes Bild auf die Helden der damaligen Zeit wirft Auch wenn

    Emily Hauser s Golden Apple trilogy investigates various women from Greek mythology Although the three books are connected, they can be viewed as a standalone as each covers a different legend The final book in this trilogy centres around three women Hippolyta the Queen of the s, Admete the daughter of Eurystheus and Hera, goddess and wife of Zeus.For the Immortal mostly alternates between the stories of Admete and Hippolyta two seemingly unrelated stories, but in time, the paths of th Em
