    Summary

    "The kind god tries to warm you back to life, and next endeavors to attend your wound, and stay your parting soul with healing herbs. His skill is no advantage, for the wound is past all art of cure. As if someone, when in a garden, breaks off violets, poppies, or lilies hung from golden stems, then drooping they must hang their withered heads, and gaze down towards the earth beneath them; so, the dying boy's face droops, and his bent neck, a burden to itself, falls back upon his shoulder" - Ovid, Metamorphoses

    Hyacinthus is the new student who is quickly enveloped into schemes of love and war between the teens who resemble the old Greek Gods a little too much.
    Psyche is the prettiest girl at school, or at least she would be if it weren't for her enemy Aphrodite who longed for nothing more except to be known as prettier than Psyche.
    This is a story of romance and deception following the lives of two famous Greek heroes who are now in the modern world, with no memories of their past or of the dangers that face them if they continue to contend with the fates.

    Summary

    Nausicaa, the Phaeacian princess, features in one book and a handful of lines in Homer’s Odyssey. She deserves so much more, as her compound name, ‘Burner of Ships’, suggests. So queer ancient Greek myth pirate adventure it is.

    Summary

    Patroclus is not the Chosen One; he is not even sure he belongs in this world half the time. He knows the Chosen One and he's a boy just like himself—except he’s golden and perfect, he’s the star Quidditch player and he's the most powerful and gifted wizard in history. He’s destined to save all of magic someday. Patroclus kind of wants to hate him but Achilles makes it impossible.

    The Harry Potter and Song of Achilles mashup you never knew you wanted (hopefully).

    Summary

    “But don’t you want to marry me?” he asked, enough of a lilt in his voice that he could beg off as teasing need be.

    Penelope was too sharp to be fooled by his tone. “I believe it’s my father you’ll be needing to speak with about that.”

    Or: Penelope is used to being outshone by her cousin Helen, and even Clytemnestra. Odysseus is used to having things go his way, through luck or cunning. They never realized that meeting each other would undo all of that, and themselves.

    Summary

    Patrocle n’est pas l’Élu ; la plupart du temps il n’est même pas d’avoir sa place dans ce monde. Il sait que l’Élu est un garçon comme lui – sauf qu’il est adoré de tous et parfait, qu'il est le joueur star de l’équipe de Quidditch et également le plus doué et le plus puissant sorcier de l’histoire. Il est destiné à sauver toute la magie un jour. Patrocle voudrait le détester mais Achille rends ça impossible.

    Le mashup Harry Potter et du chant d'Achille que vous ne saviez pas que vous vouliez (avec un peu de chance).
