I honestly don't know how to rate this, so I'm rounding up to 4 stars.
Did I like it? 3 stars.
Is it well written? 4 stars.

I've read too many retellings of Greek myths this year. They've all had a feminist angle and while I've loved reading the stories from the POV of the women in them, I'm reminded the entire time how horrible all the men are. And when you're already familiar with a story, reading again and again about the terrible things these "heroes" did is like eating something gross over and over.
I still don't like mushrooms, dammit.

I read this on audio through my library and the narration was well done. ( )

Wonderful and frustrating - this well told story of two sisters separated by marriage will infuriate and entertain readers. It's a man's world and Helen and Klytemnestra are just pawns in lives that are out of their control. They could have it worse, but they are both princesses (soon to be queens) rather than slaves or servants so they have more freedom than any other women. Unfortunately, there is still a high cost they have no control over the actions that their powerful, and often times uncaring, husbands take. Claire Heywood does a masterful story spinning the "true" version of Helen of Troy's legend and brings to life her often overlooked sister. A fantastic retelling of the classic Greek myth. ( )

I love Greek mythology, but I did not love Daughters of Sparta by Claire Heywood. Presented as a reimaging or rather a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the story of Clytemnestra and Helen of Troy, it loses all the feel of the original myth. Clytemnestra is fangless, lacking the anger her story normally holds. She’s too concerned with being a good girl/wife/daughter/queen/woman, which is not her if you are familiar with her story. As for Helen, she is a complete bore. There is no complexity to her character, nor does she have any common sense. She is as shallow as the myths hint. By Part III, I had no interest in continuing this tedious story, so I didn’t. ( )

This was advertised as a great read for lovers of Circe. It is a poor imitation. It focuses on the lives of Helen of Troy and her sister, wife of Agamemnon, Klytemnestra. They are victims of their parents and husbands political alliance marriages and of the more general politics of ancient Greece. But they both fight against the restrictions this imposes. Unlike Circe, which weaves through time and is filled with mystery and suspense, this is a straightforward, chronological telling, unusual only for its point of view. I was disappointed and often bored. ( )
