She is beautiful, she is a princess, and Aphrodite is her favorite goddess, but something in Helen of Sparta just itches for more out of life. Not one to count on the gods—or her looks—to take care of her, Helen sets out to get what she wants with steely determination and a sassy attitude. That same attitude makes Helen a few enemies—such as the self-proclaimed "son of Zeus" Theseus—but it also intrigues, charms, and amuses those who become her friends, from the famed huntress Atalanta to the young priestess who is the Oracle of Delphi.In Nobody's Princess, author Esther Friesner deftly weaves together history and myth as she takes a new look at the girl who will become Helen of Troy. The resulting story offers up adventure, humor, and a fresh and engaging heroine you cannot help but root for.

I’m not generally a huge fan of Greek mythology, but they sounded interesting, so I decided to give them a shot. All I can say is this book was surprisingly amazing, and if you like historical fi...

An historical novel about Helen of Sparta (before she grew up and became Helen of Troy)? Sounded compelling to me! Especially because Sparta is such a fascinating, complex and often-problematic culture.Unfortunately, I got the impression from this book that it was written as a generic Western-prince...

Made to page 47 and I give up. I knew this was YA and it sure sounds like it.

2.0 Nobody's Princess (Princesses of Myth Series)
Nobody’s Princess a fresh new intake on Helen’s life. Yes, that Helen; the face that launched a thousand ships. The girl who lead two capitals to war and lead men to their deaths. But this story is set before this all happened of course. Readers are introduced to our heroine, Helen. A spontaneous an...
