Orestes: The Outcast

Post by lauragill » Mon February 27th, 2012, 8:38 am

I have just released the second book of the Orestes Trilogy, and the sequel to The Young Lion:

The Outcast

Seven years have passed since Orestes witnessed the savage murder of his father Agamemnon and fled for his life.

Now, aged twenty, he is ready to reclaim his birthright as king of Mycenae, and avenge his father’s murder—by killing his own mother, a crime that will label him a matricide. He will be shunned by all men, and hounded into madness by the demonic Erinyes, the relentless Daughters of Night. Orestes’ only hope of redemption lies in trial by sanity, an ordeal which will take him to the very edge of terror. Will he survive as a whole man, and receive ritual purification in order to claim his throne, or will he perish in the attempt?

Available now on Amazon Kindle.

I have not yet started writing The High King, which will be the third (and longest) book of the trilogy. I need a breather.

That's great, Laura!

Yes, take a break before you tackle the big one. You deserve it.

A very well-written teaser. Good luck with this book and the one that you have in the works!

Great! I really liked the first one, just downloaded this one. Will review when finished!

(I really needed a break from the House of Niccolo anyway!)
Whoever wishes to foresee the future must consult the past; for human events ever resemble those of preceding times. This arises from the fact that they are produced by men who ever have been, and ever shall be, animated by the same passions, and thus they necessarily have the same results.
