The Necklace of Goddess Athena

Author(s): Effrosyni Moschoudi

Location(s): Athens

Genre(s): Fantasy, Romance, Science Fiction/Future, Suspense

Era(s): Modern day/ancient times

The Necklace of Goddess Athena is a moving family story of mystery, drama and romance, while its supernatural elements will delight lovers of Greek mythology.

Phevos and his sister Daphne are time travelers from ancient Greece. Their father, a man of mystery, sends them to modern-day Athens without telling them the reason. With the aid of two orphaned siblings, who are anything but the random strangers they seem to be, they settle down in the quaint district of Plaka and soon begin to discover old family secrets. A precious finding helps them to realize they’ve been caught up in a conflict between two Gods; one is a protector, the other, their worst nemesis. Why was their family broken up eleven years ago? Will they find their loved ones again? And will Phevos ever remember what happened the last time he saw his mother?
