“Triton” by Yelle Hughes is an excellent fun read about Greek Gods in modern times. The plot of this inspired novel is spanning the millenia with a twisted family feud that begins in Ancient Greek, moves through the days of Rome and finds its way to contemporary Ohio. Descendants of the Gods and the Immortals themselves do the name Greek Drama proud. Incestuous lusts, improper longings, love, jealousy and revenge – it is all there for you.
Ariadne, a young woman in Ohio, discovers some Greek book and read out the writing while clearing out her grandmother’s belongings, an event that is noticed in the Aegaen and draws attention to her. Pursued also by one of her ancestors and an unsuitable ex-boyfriend, the complications add up nicely and make for an inspired and well unfolding plot.
Hi guys. I’m Yelle Hughes, mum of three and now a proud grandparent. I’m an avid reader as well as author. I enjoy canoeing, studying the Greek myths, watching action and western movies, and also an unpaid movie critic.
My work is written from the heart and pays homage to people who have passed through my life, just as the seasons pass each year.
I discovered the world of Greek Mythology in Jr. High and the idea of adding the modern and fantasy worlds together, began to take form.
Twenty years, a marriage, three rugrats and a trip to Greece finally brought to life my series, the Aegean Chronicles (coming soon). A mixing of cultures, humor, sadness and weird sex takes you on an adventure in finding out that romance can be achieved, no matter who you are.
