Description

In this intensely romantic fantasy, a beautiful priestess of the Goddess, sister to the Queen of Epiros, is compelled by her destiny to seek out and wed the most powerful man of the time, King Phillip of Macedon. She will become a figure of legend, and their son will rule the world.She was a priestess of the Great Goddess, one of the last in a time when the worship of the Mother was dwindling away. But she was also a daughter of the ruling house of Epiros. Her father was a king, her sister a famous queen. She was called a witch, and a familiar of serpents ... she was a figure of mystery, fascination, and fear even during her own lifetime.Author Judith Tarr takes the legends and weaves an intensely romantic fantasy novel set in ancient Greece and Macedon. The power of the Goddess has touched the young priestess and filled her dreams with the image of a man who is also a bull. The dreams send her to the Mysteries at Samothrace for initiation, and there she comes face to face with Philip of Macedon. He plays God to her embodiment of the Goddess in the Mystery, and their passion brings down the power of the Gods to the sacred island. It forges a bond between them that will never be broken. The bond is formalized with a wedding soon after.But the new Queen of Macedon discovers that she must win her place at her husband's side - it will not be given to her. And there are many powers who know that if Olympias is allowed to conceive a son, the world will never be the same.
