Ancient Reflections: A Mythic Trilogy
by Tamara Agha-Jaffar
Collected here for the first time are three novels of gods and monsters, epic tales with profoundly human messages resonating through the ages. Author Tamara Agha-Jaffar breathes new life and perspective in three ancient myths by giving voice to the women who made these ancient tales so memorable. A Pomegranate and the Maiden retells the story of Demeter and Persephone through the voices of gods, goddesses, and mortals caught up in the abduction of Persephone. Unsung Odysseys retells the story of Odysseus’ return from Troy through the voices of women. And Gilgamesh of Uruk retells the story of the Mesopotamian hero Gilgamesh and his epic journey to find his ancestor, Utnapishtim the Faraway, to learn his story of survival and unlock the secrets of immortality. Though their worlds are full of gods, monsters, and otherworldly challenges, their voices ring true.
