Song of Sacrifice by Janell RhiannonThe heart of the Trojan War belongs to the women.
Mothers and daughters; wives and war prizes, whisper to us across time...
...remember our songs alongside the mighty men of myth.
As the Age of Heroes wanes, the gods gamble more fiercely with mortals’ lives than they ever have before. Women must rely on their inner strength and cunning to survive the wars men wage for gold and glory.
Clytemnestra of Mycenae struggles for control of her life after Agamemnon ruthlessly rips it apart. Leda of Sparta survives a brutal assault by Zeus, shouldering a terrible secret in silence. Penelope raises Ithaka’s sole heir alone, praying for Odysseus’ swift return. Thetis, the sea nymph, despairs of her son’s destiny and resorts to forbidden magic to save him. Hecuba of Troy mourns the loss of her second son to a dark prophesy. And Shavash of Pedasus prepares her daughter to marry the greatest warrior who ever lived.
In a world where love leads to war and duty leads to destruction, the iron hearts of heroines will conquer all.
Sing, Muse, sing their song of sacrifice...
Replaces Song of Princes as the first book in the Homeric Chronicles.

FlourishAnyway believes there is a playlist for just about any situation and is on a mission to unite and entertain the world through song. Do you accept those you love when they are moody, forgetful, broken, or frail? How about when they behave badly or when they at their most unlovable? And what if their lifestyle, values, politics, religion, personal choices, or other aspects of their identity differ dramatically from your own? People often claim their love to be unconditional when in reality they put plenty of conditions upon it. How we condition our love says as much about us as it does the target of our affection. If you love someone else this way, why not make a playlist of songs about unconditional love to remind them how much you care?
We need sad songs for the comfort they can provide. Bernie Taupin captured this sentiment best and hid it in a jaunty little pop song by Elton John:. Yes, sad songs do say so much.
