Rate this:
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.

The idea behind the story is fantastic. Sadly, Helen is a whiney, shallow, ANNOYING little cry baby who doesn't really learn a single thing. She just whines. Or is constantly asking for validation on her looks. It took what could have made a great new spin on the face that launched a thousand ships. But really they would have launched away from this Helen, not toward her. At light speed.

I feel in love with this book before I even finished the first chapter. For anyone who loves Greek Mythology, admires and strives for freedom and independence (particularly women, but not exclusively)

Such great writing. Also great for those wanting to learn more about Greek Mythology.

I really like the ideas behind this story, but Helen really annoys me. I find her decisions shallow and stupid, and I don't see the purpose behind any of them. If you're looking for a character with more purpose, I'd recommend Sphinx's Princess and Sphinx's Queen. However, I do agree that this is worth reading if you like mythology and royalty intertwined.

This book was amazing and I cant wait to read the next book. I really recommend this book to any one who enjoys girls that are adventurous and don't take no for an answer.

Things you never thought about Helen of Sparta...

I loved this book!!! It gave me a whole new view of Helen. Rather than the self-centered princess with the face that caused a 10 year war we usually see, she's portrayed as a strong, independent girl who doesn't want to depend on her looks alone. I can't wait to read the next book, Nobody's Prize!
