In a time of old, the young Calypso, princess of Troy, wishes for more in her life. She longs for the bull Taurus, a constellation she looks at every night as she listens to the nightingale's mournful song. But when a mysterious and formidable beast appears out of nowhere and razes her home to the ground and changes her life as she knows it, Calypso is given the opportunity to prevent everyone she loves from dying and to save her homeland, along with Tyre. She must find someone from the future and together they must find a way to save her home. Will they be able to do so before time runs out? Follow Calypso and Daniel in their exciting adventure in Ashenland: Love Through the Sands of Time by Gianna Scannell.
This book is perfect for young adults who enjoy a fantasy setting and also for those who enjoy Greek mythology. It puts a fresh new spin on a Greek myth that helps bring a modern twist to it. It has a nice flow of themes perfect to relate to the younger audience, including love, friendship, trials of strength and determination and many more. Scannell does a good job also in keeping the flow of the story. At no point was I bored or felt the need to push myself to keep reading. This is nice, especially in a young adult novel where it can be hard to keep the reader's attention. Very well done I would say. Ashenland: Love Through the Sands of Time is a very enchanting read. I really enjoyed it.
