In 1350 BC, Melanion struggles with the cards fate has dealt him, as he has no earthly idea how to achieve the dual vows he made to his now deceased mother. Somehow Melanion must keep his matriarch’s home city Thessaly safe from the invasion of his father King Kryton of Macedonia. Yet on the other hand, Melanion is not to kill his sire. Though Melanion tries to negotiate a diplomatic peace, Kryton’s High Command Polymus has a different plan for Thessaly, utter rape and destruction of the city-state.
Thessaly Princess Atalante knows she is the chosen one of the Goddess Artemis though she also believes the mark on her visage leaves her quite ugly with no chance of gaining the love of a man. When Melanion meets Atalante, he finds her beautiful, but though she is not allowed to look in a mirror she cannot believe he tells the truth. Still, they fall in love, but Melanion tugs at Atalante’s loyalties to her family and the quest Artemis placed on her.
THE MOON RUNNERS is an excellent mythological romance starring two superb lead characters struggling with love and their respective vows while a wonderful horde of secondary players augment the heroic twosome by adding depth to the strong tale. The story line is loaded with action and quite descriptive so that the reader believes they are on an Ancient Greek quest amidst the Olympus legends. More novels like this one will lead to Mary Lennox becoming a legendary chronicler of the Ancient Greek myths.
