Review originally posted on really enjoyed For the Most Beautiful Hauser s debut novel which told the tale of the siege of Troy from the perspective of two women caught up in the battle an unusual and likely uniue perspective from which to share that well known story and I was absolutely delighted when I was sent a copy of Hauser s follow up For the Winner to reviewSome three thousand years ago in a time before history the warriors of Greece journeyed to the ends of the earth in the greatest expedition the world had ever seenOne woman fought alongside themAbandoned at birth on the slopes of Mount Pelion Atalanta is determined to prove her worth to the father who cast her aside Having taught herself to hunt and fight and disguised as a man she wins a place on the greatest voyage of that heroic age with Jason and his band of Argonauts in search of the legendary Golden FleeceAnd it is here in the company of men who will go down in history as heroes that Atalanta must battle against the odds and the will of the gods to take control of her destiny and change her life foreverWith her unrivalled knowledge and captivating storytelling Emily Hauser brings alive an ancient world where the gods can transform a mortal s life on a whim where warriors carve out names that will echo down the ages and where one woman fights to determine her own fateAs with her previous novel Hauser presents the reader with a tale from Greek mythology but told from the perspective of a female character In this case we have Atalanta abandoned on a mountain at her father s command during a winter storm but rescued and taken in by a peasant family Growing up she learns to wield a bow and a sword and upon discovering the truth about her heritage seeks out the father who abandoned her determined to prove her worth I absolutely loved Atalanta She is smart and capable and if ever there was ever a feminist in ancient Greece it is surely her I loved her determination to prove herself her pride and unwillingness to concede defeat even when faced with daunting odds I also loved her desire to go on an adventure and to be comparable to the heroes of the time her attitude spoke to the part of me that always wanted adventures as a childAlso present in For the Winner are the meddling Gods and Goddesses of the time most notably Hera who loves to involve herself in human affairs I loved the portrayal of these beings as proud manipulative and self obsessed yet ultimately fallible and capable of being outwitted often by each other and I think that the inclusion of these beings in the tale adds a little something extra to the story If I enjoyed For the Most Beautiful I absolutely loved For the Winner I think that part of this was because I m less familiar with the story of Jason and the Argonauts than I am with the siege of Troy although I remember watching a film of Jason and the Argonauts with my dad while growing up although it bore little resemblance to this novel If you re interested in mythology this is definitely a novel worth reading but even if that element doesn t appeal I think that fans of historical fiction and or fantasy adventures would find much to enjoy in Hauser s novels which can be read as standalone tales despite being loosely linkedFor the Winner was published on 15 June by Doubleday many thanks to Hannah Bright for providing a copy for review

Atalanta has always been one of the interesting heroines of Greek myth a fleet footed huntress who challenged her suitors to a foot race slew the Calydonian Boar and made a name for herself as the only woman to join the uest for the Golden Fleece She makes a bold and appealing heroine in Emily Hauser s For The Winner which simultaneously grounds the legend of Jason and his Argonauts in a grittier realistic ancient Greece than we usually see in the myths and weaves in the gods themselves as they comment on the human adventures below Atalanta determined to prove her worth to the kingly father who abandoned her as an infant disguises herself as a man to join the cold eyed Jason and his Argonauts as they set sail for Colchis Atalanta battles the hardships of the voyage the dislike of Jason who I was pleased to see as the villain of this piece rather than the hero I never liked him even in the myth and the mistrust of her fellow Argonauts who will certainly cast her out if they discover her secretor will they Periodically the gods interject themselves from Olympus deliciously and hilariously vain inclined to screw things up for the hyper competent Atalanta than aid her along For The Winner is a delightful read all pathos and humor and a heroine to make you cheer I can t wait for Hauser s next
