The Firebrand by Marion Zimmer Bradley

Synopsis: Born of noble blood, Kassandra is gifted with the ability to see into the future—and her visions tell of a battle that will bring the wrath of the gods upon all of Greece. She has foreseen the fall of Troy, but no one believes Kassandra’s prophecies, or heeds her warnings about the beautiful woman known as Helen…

Review: This is an author I had heard a lot about, but I don’t think I’d ever read one of her novels before. I must confess that I was very curious of this reprint. Yes, because I love Greek mythology and the author offers us a fascinating re-release!

In this novel, we mainly follow Kassandra’s life, but her life is intimately linked to others, such as Paris, Achilles, Andromaque, Ulysse and many others that we know well!

Kassandra is a character that I loved to follow, even if her life is quite terrible. She must go through different trials, trying to keep hope, knowing that things can’t get any better. Receiving prophecies that no one believes, it will be very hard to see that people prefer not to take her words into account while paying the consequences afterwards.

Yes, it was a really interesting novel and one that we read with great pleasure, even though it is very dense. This means that you can’t read everything at once, but it’s an enjoyable novel. The author has done a lot of researches and you can feel it, I had a really good time with all the characters.

If you’re a fan of Greek mythology, this novel is for you.
