An Amazon princess learns about honor and family in this adventure set during the Golden Age of Greece. Hippolyta's mother, Amazon Queen Otrere, gives birth to her second son and refuses to kill him as tradition demands. When she is imprisoned, she turns to Hippolyta to save the baby and take him to his father, King Laomedon of Troy. The girl's mission is successful, but she is to be killed for offending Laomedon. Tithonus, the first son of her mother and Laomedon, saves her, and they return to the Amazon capital, only to find the Amazons cursed. Athena informs Hippolyta that to save her people, she must travel to their ancestral home and sacrifice Tithonus. The siblings survive adventure and enemies as they travel, and Hippolyta must decide whether her brother's life is more important than her goddess's command. While the gods play an important part in this story, historical detail creates a realistic background for a minor character in the mythology of the Trojan War. Hippolyta is a strong heroine who faces difficult choices and grows as the story unfolds, and secondary characters are also well defined. This is a detailed, compelling story, and its nonstop action will involve even reluctant readers.

And now, giant Kirby dots:

That's neat. I'm tempted to pick it up. Novel or comic?

Sounds interesting... Is it well-written? How many pages is it long?

I think I read this book a few years ago. If it's the book I think it is, it's really good. If it's not the book I think it is, I might end up reading it at some point, because it still sounds really good. ;P Also, pretty art is pretty.
