Summary
Sorceress, Princess of Colchis, Securer of the Golden Fleece. Her very name is a byword for infamy. Legend has it that she murdered her own children for revenge. But love in Ancient Greece was often a dangerous game; and legends are not always what they seem. Medea, devoted wife of Jason, was also a loving mother, a loyal friend of Herakles and a brave adventurer with the Argonauts. A woman both betrayer and betrayed, the real story of Medea is strange, sensual and heroic. Medea—first in the ‘Delphic Women’ trilogy—followed by Cassandra and Electra
