Calliope has no idea what odyssey awaits her when she begins her journey to her much-loved Greece. She is to spend the summer with her beloved Greek grandmother who will give her the love and healing she needs. But soon after she arrives in Greece, she is exposed to amazing family secrets…a prelude to the Greek gods she will meet, who materialize from ancient Greek mythology.
To claim her destiny, which will affect the fate of all people, Calliope must use all of the training and education she learns from the ancient Greek Olympians who become her teachers of metaphysical and battle arts. The Greek gods teach her the secrets encoded within the mythology of ancient Greece and take her on a spiritual journey that culminates in a life-and-death battle with her family’s despised enemy.
Blending elements of ancient Greek mythology with modern characters, The Circle of Olympians is a book that opens a doorway to magic and antiquity. Simultaneously set in ancient Greece, modern Greece and California, the author weaves an exciting, modern, Greek myth…a tale both enjoyable and fascinating.
