  1. While watching the new Wonder Woman movie, I recognized Diana s mother s name, Hippolyta, as the name of a novel in our library I wanted to read it in order to learn about Diana s mother and the women I enjoyed Jane Yolen s novelization of the mythic tales No direct ties to Diana because of Hippolyta s age in this particular setting, but an interesting tale.


  2. Hippolyta and the Curse of the s by Jane Yolen and Robert J Harris is the second book in the Young Heroes series I have not read the first book, so I am hazarding a guess that each book can stand on its own It seems that each book chronicles the adventures of young heroes from mythology Hippolyta is a true , she is proud and brave, living for the thrill of the hunt and for the friendship of her fellow female warriors She is a skilled hunter and loving sister Then, because her mother demands it a [...]


  3. Disclaimer I received this book free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review I did not receive any form of compensation.I have always been in love with the old mythologies I can never understand why the older religions are called myths by mainstream society and the newer religions are called religions They are all stories of gods and how to live your life.Well, that is just a personal beef with how society views things that it doesn t approve of or doesn t want to acknowledge The story h [...]


  4. Hippolyta and the Curse of the s is a fun adventure for young readers Especially those looking for adventures with Greek gods and warriors.Young Hippolyta is a brave warrior living among the s When her mother gives birth to a baby boy, there are ominous prophecies that threaten the s Hippolyta is sent with the baby to Troy, where the child s father is king When her life is threatened, she is thrown together with another boy that is her younger brother Escaping back to her home, she finds it cur [...]


  5. received a free copy to review from NetGalleyJane Yolen is definitely one of my favorite Young Adult Children s fiction writers, and any book that focuses on engaging young kids in history is always worth checking out Presenting historical figures in engaging ways is an excellent way to get them excited to explore on the subject Such is the case with Hippolyta and the Curse of the s The culture of the s is an enigma to most, and the idea of a society of all females is enough to engage your inte [...]


  6. This is an historical fantasy story about the childhood of the queen, Hippolyta Although she is only 13, she is already a trained warrior as well as a princess At her mother s request she travels to Troy to deliver her brother to his father, King Laomedon That journey results in being staked out as a sacrifice to an angry sea monster, battling enemy soldiers, meeting gods in disguise, and trying to lift a curse on the s Hippolyta is brave, loyal, and a good fighter, but she must learn some lesso [...]


  7. I love the idea of this series the early lives of famous Greek heroes Jane Yolen is also one of my favourite authors I expected to like this book a lot than I did While the story was really entertaining, I really didn t care for the overall moral Not only was it hammered on the entire time, but it was also the whole women are totally capable, but they really need men in the end which I loathe It s not a lesson any woman actually needs to learn, as we re constantly told how much we need men all [...]


  8. I read this in middle school I believe and I got the urge to re read it this week It was as enjoyable this time around as it was the first time Now that I m older though, there were a few little things here and there that didn t seem right or read smoothly Still enjoyed it and recommend it for everyone, especially those that have a hard time reading a long book or are looking to get back into reading passionately like me.


  9. I thought that this book in the Young Heroes series was not as good as the others I feel that it does not really explain much about what was going on If you did not know the history of the s, then you would get lost at several points in the book Also, at the end it was a cliff hanger It left you wondering What happened and How did the story end


  10. I loved this book.I love Greek mythology and the intertwining of historical people places and fiction.I don t want to give the plot away, but the story was so well written, that it will bring Ancient Greece and the pantheon to life for young readers.Even as a middle aged adult I enjoyed this book very much It was a great read.


  11. Hippolyta is a young warrior, daughter of the queen But the queen has just had a second baby boy, which is forbidden by law, so he must be sacrificed The queen refuses and gives the child to Hippolyta to save by taking him to his father Hippolyta learns many moral lessons in her journey.


  12. good plot very happy when the stupid twins got bested by Hippolyta s father she was a great, brave, and cunning warrior and the tale had a fitting end and just to say the king of the trojans is really big jerk not bothering to care about one of his probably numerous wive s or worry about either of his sons.


  13. cute, but not really all that much substance there are some rather heavy handed morals life lessons peppered throughout the book as well overall a fun enjoyable read for kids a little too young for the Percy Jackson books.


  14. Hippolyta is faced with ending a cruse on the s with only her brother for help But it turns out the gods are involved than she thought.I though this was a charming tale oa s, gods and fate Very entertaining.


  15. This book was a great one for ancient Greek mythology lovers It was a fresh take on the legends and finally had a girl as the main character





  16. Percy Jackson books made me renew my interest in greek mythology books and I found a few by Jane Yolan Well rewritten, short stories Wish there were or something similar.
