The Moon Riders Summary ¶ 9 Myrina has prepared for thirteen years to join the Moon Riders learning the sacred dances the art of using a weapon and listening to her mother and grandmother's tales of their time spent with the Moon maidens Finally the day arrives when she will leave her family and devote herself to the Old Woman Atisha and her tribe of fea. This was an ok book It tols a good story and when things happened to the main character Myrina I did cry and laugh but for me it lacked that little bit extra that makes a book unforgettableI really liked the Moon Riders though I thought it showed how women were powerful even then and respected Myrina was a character you could easily like as was Cassandra of Troy what I most liked about the book was the fact that the Moon Riders believed Cassandra whereas in mythology it was said none believed her and her visions it made me smile that a group of fighting and dancing s would be realistic and believeI think this book definitely adds something for those who know the story of Troy and Cassandra other than the usual story of Helen and Paris

The Moon Riders Summary ¶ 9 Ved The events that unfold as the Trojan War wages on will affect Myrina Cassandra and the Moon Riders in unimaginable unforgettable waysAcclaimed British author Theresa Tomlinson expertly brings to life the legend of the s and sets it against a backdrop of one of the most mythic imagination inspiring battles in all of history. Authors have a habit of taking real andor literary events and adding imaginary characters to them Sometimes it works out well like Ragtime Other times it s just sort of a thing that people do and can be a little interesting to see how they explain history but can also be awfully predictable and kind of meh The Moon Riders is along the lines of the latterYour first inkling that something fishy is going on here arrives when you see King Priam his daughter Cassandra King Agamemnon and his daughter Iphigenia all hanging out together near Troy Then you remember perhaps that CRAP you did read this in the book description but totally forgot and UGH now you ve started but your eyes are involuntarily rolling so hard you re getting a headache MaybeThe titular Moon Riders are a fictionalized version of the s Being a moon rider is often hereditary so if your mother and grandmother were moon riders your sister and you will be as well In general the moon riders travel across the land doing sacred dances in religious ceremonies At times however the moon riders turn warrior and fight as necessary so they re all trained in shooting arrows from horseback Of course they MUST be turning warrior if for no reason other than Homer wrote that it was so but that s approximately 10 years down the roadThe thing is I would have really liked this story a lot if it took place any time other than during the Trojan War The main character is surprised that Prince Paris seems to have some other dude s wife with him And the other dude wants her back HUH Achilles will pillage all the lands while waiting to beat up Troy Cool story bro I wonder if that guy has a weakness anywhere Crap and now I m stuck rolling my eyes againThis is a female centric telling of the Iliad but not from the perspective of the women who sat around in Troy during the siege or the women who sat around on Ithaka waiting for their husband to take the world s longest boat ride The moon riders are active in life and their own destinies they serve for seven years and then choose a husband for themselves They are strong and capable The nomadic tribes they come from support this and don t think women are pretty flowers meant as silent decoration HOW CONVENIENT The whole moon riders thing is interesting the customs and magic and travels are each interesting in their own right Couldn t it just be that a few years BEFORE the Iliad they existed and turned warrior to defend some random village from something that we haven t all heard the story of a hundred times Alas no Also just like the Iliad The Moon Riders begins with all sorts of backstory and Big Happenings but then gets bored and says SKIP TO THE END and all of a sudden it s 10 years later and nothing new has happened I wish something new had happened once or twice in there But no such luckIt wasn t terrible but it wasn t terribly good either In its defense it was infinitely faithful to its source than that horrible Brad Pitt movie
