Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this rousing sequel to Nobodys Princess, young Helen of Sparta is not about to be left behind when her older brothers head off to join the quest for the Golden Fleece. Accompanied by her friend Milo, and disguised as a boy herself, Helen sets out to join the crew of heroes aboard the massive ship known as The Argo.

Helen quickly faces all sorts of danger. There are battles to be fought, as well as an encounter with a terrifying murderous princess. With her beauty blossoming, Helens journey takes her beyond the mythology of the Golden Fleece to Athens, where her very future as Queen of Sparta is threatened.

From the Hardcover edition.

Friesner deftly weaves together history and myth as she takes a new look at the girl who will become Helen of Troy. The resulting story offers up adventure, humor, and a fresh and engaging heroine readers cannot help but root for.

Why should guys have all the fun? This book just embodies girl power and how women were wtrong willed, no matter what time. This story give girls hope, shows growth of a young girl.

Just don't anyone tell you that you can't. After all, your nobody's prize, you're your own self.
