Waiting on Wednesday (4/27/11)

Hosted by Breaking the Spine, Waiting On Wednesday is all about highlighting books we can’t wait for.  My pick this week is:

Hera: The Goddess and her Glory (Olympians) 
Hera: The Goddess and her Glory (Olympians) by George O’Connor.
The product description from Amazon is:
The story of Hera, Queen of the Gods, and the heroes who won her favor.
Volume 3 of Olympians, Hera: The Goddess and Her Glory, introduces readers to the Queen of the Gods and Goddesses in the Pantheon. This volume tells the tales of the many heroes who sought and won Hera’s patronage, most notably Hercules. In Olympians, O’Connor draws from primary documents to reconstruct and retell classic Greek myths. But these stories aren’t sedate, scholarly works. They’re action-packed, fast-paced, high-drama adventures with monsters, romance, and not a few huge explosions. O’Connor’s vibrant, kinetic art brings ancient tales to undeniable life, in a perfect fusion of super-hero aesthetics and ancient Greek mythology.

  1. I always love myths when reading them in school and any fantasy that incorporates them is worth a shot to me! Nice choice. I am your newest follower and I'd appreciate it if you hopped on over to my blog to follow me back. Thanks!
