Critic Reviews

"Lucian flees corrupt palace officials in pre-classical Greece, his flight becoming a quest to discover his role in life.... [T]he result is a good, involving story. Readers already acquainted with Greek literature and legend will enjoy picking out familiar threads." ( Publishers Weekly)

Not What I was Expecting

I thought this would be more of a prequel to his Chronicles of Prydain series. It barely alluded to it but was a much better read if left to stand in its own. As always with Lloyd Alexander, there are great values woven into this fun narrative.
