The Lost Sisterhood

The Lost Sisterhood

Back

Fortier (Juliet, 2010), offers a creative retelling of another legendary story. Diana Morgan is a statuesque young professor at Oxford who believes that Amazons actually existed, with good reason: her grandmother claimed to be one. When Diana gets an offer from a mysterious man who claims he has proof of the Amazons' existence, she takes off for North Africa and a hidden underground temple that boasts an inscription written in the Amazon language. Diana translates the inscription, but it proves to be just the beginning of a journey that will be fraught with danger. Intercut with Diana's adventures are those of Myrina, a female warrior turned priestess from the Late Bronze Age, who goes on a quest to rescue her sisters from a group of brutal Greeks. Her search brings her into the orbit of the handsome Trojan prince, Paris, in whom she finds an ally and more. Fortier's imaginative retelling of the Trojan war is even more involving than Diana's exciting, dangerous quest to uncover the truth about both past and present-day Amazons.
