She is beautiful she is a princess and Aphrodite is her favorite goddess but something in Helen of Sparta just itches for out of life Unlike her prissy sister Clytemnestra she takes no pleasure in weaving and embroidery And despite what her mother says she's not even close to being interested in getting married Instead she wants to do combat training with her older brot. The description says you'll find yourself rooting for Helen I beg to disagree I felt just the opposite Helen is a spoiled stubborn selfish impulsive immature bratty child She is inconform with everything She gets her way with everything She is smarter slyer and altogether better than everyone else at everything by the ripe old age of fourteen she is actually much younger throughout the first half of the book yet that doesn't impair her knowledge or skills at all The other characters serve as foils or teachers for Helen Okay Obviously Ms Friesner wanted to make Helen a strong female character which is all nice and well but most if not all of it is much too unbelievable In fact it seems Ms Friesner wanted to glamorize every female—excluding Clytemnestra Helen's twin sister in the book and biggest foil Helen is perfect; Helen is unhuman Root for her Nay I wanted to bash her on the head

Nobody's PrincessAmuses those who become her friends from the famed huntress Atalanta to the young priestess who is the Oracle of DelphiIn Nobody's Princess author Esther Friesner deftly weaves together history and myth as she takes a new look at the girl who will become Helen of Troy The resulting story offers up humor action and a fresh and engaging heroine you cannot help but root f. This book was pretty goodSome parts were exciting while others were kind of boring I thought the idea was pretty interesting since I love Greek mythology and I'm fascinated with the legend of Helen and TroyIt was cool to see this author's view on Helen's childhood though it wasn't written that well There were only a few things that bothered me The author italicizes words way too often about ten times every page and so that was uite frustrating Also the author had a tendency to go off on a rant about things that weren't that important or significant to the plot Lastly the author left out a few things that were supposed to have happened to Helen when she was at a certain age For example she was never kidnapped by Theseus at age ten but rather passed that year with nothing like that happening which made me feel exasperated Other than that it was pretty good It left off at a cliffhanger and I'll probably read the seuel

Review Ò Nobody's Princess ´ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ê [Reading] ➶ Nobody's Princess Author Esther M. Friesner – She is beautiful she is a princess and Aphrodite is her favorite goddess but something in Helen of Sparta just itches for out of life Unlike her prissy sister ClytemnestraHers go on heroic adventures and be free to do what she wants and find out who she isNot 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 an attitude And while it's the attitude that makes Helen a few enemies such as the self proclaimed son of Poseidon Theseus it's what also intrigues charms and. I don't have a lot of thoughts on this one I really like Hellen a lot and enjoyed following her throughout the story I also loved a lot of the side characters and the characters were really what kept me going But the plot was kind of a mess It felt like we were jumping from one thing to another and they were barely connected I mean she was needing to escape a neighboring Kingdom because she thought she was going to be forced into a marriage then there was a wild boar hunt then another thing and another and another the plot kept changing and it was this build up to these big dramatic things and then they would be over in two seconds and it sort of felt like well then what was the point I mean it felt like there were a handful of different plots that this story could have focused on and spent the entire book centered around but for some reason the author tried to do them all And it felt really weird in pacing and all over the place I gave it three stars because the characters were great and the plot had a lot of potential but this really isn't something I'd recommend unfortunately
