TheWriteReads Blog Tour Spotlight | Clytemnestra’s Bind | By Susan C Wilson
In today’s TheWriteReads blog tour spotlight, we have “Clytemnestra’s Bind” by D H Susan C Wilson. This is the first book in the House of Atreus series.
The House of Atreus is spiralling into self-destruction – a woman must find a way to break the family curse.
Queen Clytemnestra’s world shatters when Agamemnon, a rival to the throne of Mycenae, storms her palace, destroys her family and claims not only the throne but Clytemnestra herself. Tormented by her loss, she vows to do all she can to protect the children born from her unhappy marriage to Agamemnon. But when her husband casts his ruthless gaze towards the wealthy citadel of Troy, his ambitions threaten to once more destroy the family Clytemnestra loves.
From one of Greek mythology’s most reviled characters – a woman who challenged the absolute power of men – comes this fiery tale of power, family rivalry and a mother’s burning love.
I have always been fascinated by Greek mythology even though I’ve grown up with Indian mythology. Even though I am not an expert in Greek mythology, I can understand and enjoy the allure of the same. From the synopsis alone, this sounds like a powerful read. The theme seems to revolve around how the women deal with the warring men greedy for power and wealth. If you are a fan of Greek mythology and the Trojan war in particular, I would say give this one a go. It might give you a new perspective on the familiar tale.
Happy Reading Everyone!!
