Oxford lecturer Diana Morgan is an expert on Greek mythology. Her obsession with the Amazons started in childhood when her eccentric grandmother claimed to be one herself - before vanishing without a trace. Diana’s colleagues shake their heads at her Amazon fixation. But then a mysterious, well-financed foundation makes Diana an offer she cannot refuse. Traveling to North Africa, Diana teams up with Nick Barran, an enigmatic Middle Eastern guide, and begins deciphering an unusual inscription on the wall of a recently unearthed temple.

I prefer to listen to books that are on the longer side... So I jumped at this hours long collection of books the sexy bod on the cover should have been an indication to the simple plot written around the intimate scenes. Such a disappointment.

Most of the time I was certain Kia was being abused... The language was foul, the maim characters seemed like redneck royalty...

Just a very simple story dragging out forever but performed very nicely

It first took me a while to figure out characters and accents. I thought of returning the book until the 5th or 6th chapter... But it captures your interest with its detailed descriptions and rich performance of the reader.
This audio book has set my bar of expectations very high.

It's a light hearted read. Unbelievable, not relatable but fun and easy.

It even brought some tears of joy at the end...

I definitely struggled to finish this book. Even though it was read very fast, I found the reader kind of bland. This was the first of many books I wished I actually read it in my own pace and interpretation.
