The Odyssey Through the Eyes of its Shattered Victims

Six authors bring to life the epic tale of The Odyssey via the monsters, witches, lovers, and warriors whose lives were upended by the antics of the “man of many faces.” You may never look upon this timeless epic—and its iconic ancient hero—in quite the same way again. In the tradition of Madeline Miller’s Song of Achilles, and with the spirit of Lindsey Davis’ The Third Nero, and Kate Quinn’s Mistress of Rome, A Sea of Sorrow transports you to the endlessly fascinating world of Homeric Greece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greek Mythology at its best I've come to look forward to these exciting books written by an ever-changing group of authors, The H Team--some of whom I've read before and some who introduced me to a whole new batch of books I quickly added to my TBR pile.  In A SEA OF SORROW, authors Amalia Carosella, Libbie Hawker, Russell Whitfield, David Blixt, Scot Oden, and Vicky Alvear Shecter bring an ancient world to life with the stories of victims left in the wake of the Greek hero, Odysseus. I loved each of the six stories within this book.  Having a different author for each tale means the reader gets to hear about their lives in truly different voices, showing you their true personality, inviting you into their world and making privy to their private thoughts.  Each will give you a different perspective on the world you thought you knew and perhaps change your thoughts on Greek Mythology altogether. I cannot say enough good about this book and the anthologies that preceded it.  If mythology is your thing, you will go crazy for this book.  If mythology isn't your thing, it will be after you read this book.  Devour it and be happy that your time was well spent.
