Adventurer Theseus had dreamed of meeting his father, King Aegeus. As Theseus journeys to Athens, he meets his match in strength along the way. But is it the will of a beautiful young princess that puts this strong young man finally at his mercy? Or will he be able to conquer the princess's heart?
She had settled for a life of unhappiness and believed a man who would love her for herself was only in her dreams.
Princess Ari has followed her father's dictates all her life. On her way to meet her bridegroom, she is attacked. Saved by a handsome adventurer, Theseus, she tempts fate and follows him on his journey to Athens. Being with Theseus opens up a whole new world of opportunity for her. But will she allow her heart or loyal duty choose her life for her?
I found "Mything You" an entertaining read, and loved the hero and heroine (and mythology). Theseus reminded me of Jake Gyllenhal in Prince of Persia and Brad Pitt in Troy. Ari is all softness--she's not Katniss from the Hunger Games--but she's more relatable to me because she's like a heroine in an old Sandra Bullock or Julia Roberts' romantic comedy. This story is action packed, while Theseus' humanity is touching. Lots of surprises in store for the reader. I look forward to reading the sequel.
Greta does a good character arc, and the reader is able to see the characters develop and change with the story. I really enjoyed watching Ari come into herself and learn more about what she could do. She had elements of the Amazons, but also some of the more domestic females in the world. Perhaps Greta will spin another tale featuring these two and more happenings with the Amazons. It would definitely be worth checking out.
I recommend this book to those that enjoy mythology based books, and lovers of romance. It's a quick read and enjoyable.
