9781530820290: Argonauts

Thousands of readers love Argonauts, calling it a “fantastic tale” and “clever, rich, and highly entertaining.”

It’s a new twist on an old myth.

It’s the story of Jason, a wealthy son of privilege who longs to be a warrior. His father’s death means Jason can finally join the Argonauts, an elite group of warriors who’ve overhauled their genetic code.

It’s the story of Medea, a scientist who toils away in a lab changing people’s genes. She gives the warriors their powers, but she never gets an ounce of credit. And now she’s found herself fighting alongside them.

And it’s the story of an adventure turned suicide mission, all for the sake of a crown.

Readers love the twists on ancient Greek mythology.

The story of Jason and Medea is thousands of years old. It was once the subject of some of the greatest plays and poems in human history, but the myth has died away in recent years. We remember Hercules, but whatever happened to Jason?

Argonauts retells the old story in a near-future science fiction setting, with future technologies replacing ancient magic. One Goodreads reviewer wrote: “I love mythical retellings and this is certainly one of the most innovative.... It shouldn’t work, but it does. The ancient Greek names and themes actually seem to feed perfectly into the world....” Another reviewer said she “loved the spinning of the classic tale into something futuristic and different!”

Even if you’re not a mythology expert, you’ll find yourself recognizing pieces of the myths. Maybe you’re a Game of Thrones fan who’ll learn where the Harpies came from, or where Cersei Lannister got her name. Or maybe you’re a Harry Potter fan who’ll learn about the myths that inspired characters like J.K. Rowling’s Amycus Carrow. These authors loved the myth, and you might, too.

Readers love the science fiction premise.

You’ve heard the stories in the news. Jobs being taken by robots. The corporate elite revealed to be more and more corrupt. Extremists all over social media. Strange technologies that do things you couldn’t imagine.

Where will it all lead? Argonauts is a look at the future through the lens of the past. Greek mythology was full of monsters. But the monsters of the future don’t come from a magic potion. They’ve changed their genes, and they aren’t entirely human anymore.

Sci fi fans are raving about the book. One reader called it a “sci fi gem.” Another said it was “reminiscent of Asimov” and “very well done.” And a third called it “a welcome addition to the reading shelf of fans of sci fi.”

Even readers who aren’t exactly nerds have found themselves enjoying it. As a Goodreads reviewer put it: “I really enjoyed the book, it’s not a book I would normally pick up and read. But branching out this time certainly paid off!”

Readers love the romance.

One of the most famous romances in history was between Jason and Medea - a Greek warrior marked for death, and the sorceress who saved him. It was a passion inspired by the gods, and a love doomed to end in tragedy - at least in the old myths.

There’s no tragedy in this book, but the love story is still there, and reviewers love “the chemistry between Jason and Medea.” A strong, commanding warrior, sent off to die in a foreign land. A sorceress who starts out as his enemy, but finds herself helping him instead as she falls deeper and deeper in love.

It was a passionate love, the kind that inspired a princess to give up everything she cared about to save a hero from a foreign land. In Argonauts, Medea is a scientist, not a sorceress - but there isn’t that much difference in the end.

Give Argonauts a try today.

You’ll experience the myths. You’ll wonder about the future. And you’ll fall in love with Jason and Medea, all for less than the price of a movie. Join thousands of fans and buy your copy today.
