Elektra by Jennifer Saint

An exciting and equally lyrical new retelling of the ancient myth of Elektra by Jennifer Saint, the Sunday Times bestselling author of ARIADNE

The House of Atreus is cursed.  A bloodline tainted by a generational cycle of violence and vengeance.  This is the story of three women, their fates inextricably tied to this curse, and the fickle nature of men and gods.

The sister of Helen, wife of Agamemnon – her hopes of averting the curse are dashed when her sister is taken to Troy by the feckless Paris.  Her husband raises a great army against them and determines to win, whatever the cost.

Princess of Troy, and cursed by Apollo to see the future but never to be believed when she speaks of it.  She is powerless in her knowledge that the city will fall.

The youngest daughter of Clytemnestra and Agamemnon, Elektra is horrified by the bloodletting of her kin.  But can she escape the curse, or is her own destiny also bound by violence?

Peer & Press Reviews

Elektra tells the stories of three women as each battles to forge her own destiny.  Jennifer Saint explores how suffering is passed down generations in this compelling novel, told in rich and evocative prose.  A truly immersive read.

Elizabeth Lee, author of Cunning Women

Saint breathes new life into the forgotten women of Greek mythology with a novel that’s both incredibly absorbing, and full of heart.

Katie Lowe, author of The Furies

With a fresh voice and keen insight, Saint adds flesh and bone to an ancient myth, drawing the reader into an uneasy world of ever-afters.

Yangsze Choo, author of The Night Tiger
