eBook & Paperback;
Genre: Historical Fiction
With divine beauty comes dangerous power.
Helen believed she could escape her destiny and save her people from utter destruction. After defying her family and betraying her intended husband, she found peace with her beloved Theseus, the king of Athens and son of Poseidon.
But peace did not last long. Cruelly separated from Theseus by the gods, and uncertain whether he will live or die, Helen is forced to return to Sparta. In order to avoid marriage to Menelaus, a powerful prince unhinged by desire, Helen assembles an array of suitors to compete for her hand. As the men circle like vultures, Helen dreams again of war—and of a strange prince, meant to steal her away. Every step she takes to protect herself and her people seems to bring destruction nearer. Without Theseus’s strength to support her, can Helen thwart the gods and stop her nightmare from coming to pass?
Copy from Historical Fiction Virtual Book Tour for an honest review
"By Helen's Hand" by Amalia Carosella was a fantastic read. I was completely captivated and drawn into the world of Helen. In this part of the story, Helen is struggling against her destiny. Carosella drew me into the world of Helen. Although I knew of her story, after reading this story she felt real and I connected with her and her struggle. Carosella's passion for the time period seeps through the pages and the tension rises up to meet the reader. I did not read the first book in the series, Helen of Sparta but I think that it will only add to an already enriching story.www.amaliacarosella.com. She also writes fantasy and paranormal romance as Amalia Dillin.
