5 Star Review by: Richard Rashke on Feb. 01, 2016 :
Kristen LePine does the impossible. She draws you into a mythical world of Greek Kings and Princesses, Gods and Monsters. Her authentic detail, sense of place, and character development make that improbable world come alive with adventure and mystery. DAUGHTER OF SPARTA, however, has one glaring flaw. LePine makes you wait a month for the next installment.
4 Star Review by: Jean Vanhelmont on Jan. 11, 2016 :
Good story. It could use a little editing but the problem is a few run on sentences that don’t affect readability. The author seems to have a pretty good knowledge of Spartan culture. Be warned that it only comes out at the rate of one brief chapter a month, but then patience is a virtue. Keep up the good work!
In Daughter of Sparta: Chapter Four, Gorgo and her family attend a dinner party and meet two foreigners who have traveled across the Aegean Sea to ask for Sparta’s help.
