BOOKS EBOOK Voyage of the Snake Lady – cafe1919.org
The Voyage of the Snake Lady is one of those seuels that robably didn t need to be written It begins something like 7 10 years after The Moon Riders the Autumn Brides probably unnecessary retelling of The Iliad That s an awful lot of maybe shouldn t really be a thing for a book to start off with but so it goesThis takes the same idea of the s builds off some versions of Greek history and takes from the first book The women horse riding group has changed after the war instead of bringing on girls from 13 20 or whatever and then shipping them off toick their own husbands and grow new girls to join up with the riders for a few years it now consists of women of all ages Many were slaves in Troy freed in the first book by the Moon Riders The dances have changed a bit as each group added brought their own traditions to the group but overall they re living and it s okNaturally that changes Achilles son is raiding the Black Sea and the Riders hop on a boat to get away from him You wouldn t think that a boat is the best way for a bunch of skilled horsewomen to avoid another boat but hey what do I know From there on it s of the same Weaving in certain accounts of history that work with the story and ignoring those that don t Tomlinson sends her characters through the wringer Death destruction fear relief momentary safety grief happiness and all the rest come through regularly for this group The basic deal is that the world is changing and the Moon Riders have to change with it to survive Sure there s some conflict but of course it all works out Was there ever any other way An absolutely AMAZING read It was suspensful and contained just the right amount of action and romance for the style The The Princess and the Three Knights plot was amazingly thought out and flowed VERY nicely and the characters were all so relatable and uniue and believable The theme of friendship was. I have seen them cried Cassandra Iphigenia Myrina and her young daughter They are in terrible trouble takenrisoner on a boat stripped of all weaponsSince the fall of Troy Myrina has built the Moon Riders into a strong and otent band of warrior women But the son of Achilles is.
Ingenious and utterly INCREDIBLEFIVE STARS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING love t he whole warrior women thing set in ancient greece you can t go wrong though not as good as the first one Not as good as the first one I liked it and the characters were all the same minus the ones who die in the first book of course but no where near as addicting as the first one I read this without reading the first book I uite enjoyed it and like almost all the characters but mostly Myrina The fact that she is the Moon Rider leader but doesn t always know what to do or if her decisions are right just makes her seem so much human rather then just a super hero warrior woman in a book Being a hopeless romantic I loved the relationship between Myrina and Kuspada and just couldn t wait till they could be reunited again All in all a good read especially for the girls not too much violence a right touch of romance and an amazing example of what true friendship is really about Not uite as good as the first one but compelling in its own way It doesn t work as a stand alone at least not to me so unless you ve read the first book Moon Riders there s a lot of background in this one that won t make sense to you The Voyage of the Snake Lady follows Myrina and her gang of Moon Riders after the events of Troy Seven years later Myrina has found herself in a recarious situation again and must fight for her life and for the lives of her treasured Moon Riders The warrior Sticky Church priestesses soon find themselves finding sanctuary in a newlace with new eople but Myrina can t stay long because her old friend Iphigenia is in trouble and she must travel to help herWhile I liked carrying on with Myrina s story as she is a great character to follow with a lot of depth and character growth especially considering we have been following her since she was 13 and in this book. Bent on revenge and the Moon Riders are displaced from their home and fighting for their livesPlagued with slavery storms shipwreck and strife the Moon Riders must accept help from outsiders for their very survival Only trust in the strong bonds of their friendship will help My.

Is around 2728 years old at least I m not 100% sure this book was completely needed There were arts of the book that were slightly draggy and while I did like the Moon Riders getting their happily ever after with the men by the river I m not sure a whole book just to make that happy was necessary The journey to save Iphigenia Witches of the Deep South proved how much Myrina is able to bond witheople who need her help and shy them away from a course that will only mean trouble I liked Iphigenia finding Orestes and seeing Cassandra and Chrystes again was nice though again not really needed If you liked The Moon Riders for its characters you would like this book There s just not as much action in this one and is not as exciting as it s Metro 2033 (Universo Metro) preuel Voyage of the Snake Lady by Theresa Tomlinson is the seuel to Tomlinson s The Moon Riders This book continues the story of Myrina head of the legendary Moon Riders after the fall of Troy I was interested in these stories because they relate to Archaeologist Jeannine Davis Kimball s work in Warrior Women Davis Kimball s book follows nomadic Sauro Sarmatian women from Kazakstan to the Mongolian steppes clearly showing that a blond modern day nomad was related to a Woman Warrior Priestess buried in Pokrovka Kazakstan Tomlinson s book illustrates how those women of myth and history could have made the trip from Troy by crossing the Black Sea and intermarrying with the Sauro Sarmatian Nomads Tomlinson s book blends history and myth with magic in a very believable way You truly care about the characters and are cheering them on their way Is it to bold to say that Theresa Tomlinson s work has shaped the woman you see today The strength and strong willed characters she writes of have truly inspired me since I was a teenager An amazing book great great bookpeople must read this book if theyve read the first one. Rina Iphigenia and Cassandra vanuish their enemies and welcome those who may help them achieve aeaceful way of lifeLike its Christianity predecessor this seuel to The Moon Riders is aowerful blend of intriguing myth and inspired imagination leavened by romance and unforgettable character.
Though I was born in the South of England my parents moved back to the North when I was one year old and I have lived in Yorkshire ever since I spent a few years as an infant teacher but when my children were young I started making picture books for them and became hooked on writing I love drawing and painting but my main love is writing often using the legends and history around me as ins
