Praise for Atalanta:A Most Anticipated Book (Goodreads, Cosmopolitan, Reader's Digest, BookRiot, Tor.com, The Nerd Daily, Gizmodo, SheReads, Beyond the Bookends, BookTrib., and more!) "Sensational... Readers looking for an incredible female author to add to their shelves should pick up Saint's entire collection."
--Reader's Digest "The Greek warrior gets her hero's story as she goes on a quest for the iconic Golden Fleece."
--Cosmopolitan "Incredible...A novel full of passion and adventure, where many different myths come together in a bright, joyous tapestry."
--The Nerd Daily "In this feminist reclamation of Atalanta's mythology, we see her fighting for her place in a patriarchal world and proving herself capable beyond anyone's dreams for her."
--BookRiot "Another whirlwind retelling of mythic proportions... In a world where men continually try to contain her, Atalanta must carve out her own place and leave her legendary mark on the world."
--BookTrib. "Captivating...The ending is so beautiful it makes every moment leading up to it worth the wait. In her acknowledgements, Saint says she hopes the novel will make readers fall as in love with Atalanta as she did--and her quest has been fulfilled."
"Bold...A compelling story about a powerful, observant warrior who loves a good, honorable fight."
"A stunning retelling filled with breathtaking adventure, Atalanta brings to life a heroine who stands tall among the ancient gods and heroes of legend."
--Sue Lynn Tan, author of Daughter of the Moon Goddess
"Saint deftly draws the reader into the legends of Atalanta, bringing the world of ancient Greece alive. The detail and description is lush: you can hear the rustle of the green leaves and taste the salty spray of the sea as the Argo rides forth on its quest. A story of adventure and love against all odds, this is an ancient tale limned with gold."
--Luna McNamara, author of Psyche and Eros
"Absolutely beautiful. This is a retelling that fully inhabits the magical realm of myth while losing none of its human heart. Atalanta is a lyrical, exciting and deeply poignant tale of one woman's remarkable life--and I cannot wait to read it again."
--Elodie Harper, author of The Wolf Den and The House with the Golden Door Praise for Jennifer Saint's Novels: "A powerful glimpse of ancient Greece." --Washington Post "A vivid reimagining." --Harper's Bazaar "Engrossing...A page-turner." --Glamour "Wildly compelling." --BuzzFeed "Spellbinding." --Book Riot "Poignant and necessary." --Paste Magazine "Circe fans would do well to take note." --Bustle "Enchanting." --Publishers Weekly "Complex--and bold." --Booklist "Fascinating and unpredictable." --Chicago Review of Books
