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)

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.

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!
