9780385615174: Dido

While she was still trembling with the complete unexpectedness of what Aeneas had just said and done, he leaned forward a little and kissed her on the mouth. Just one swift, soft touch of his lips on hers and then he turned and walked away. Love can be deadly. Especially when two girls fall for the same man - one a queen, the other her serving girl. Elissa knows she is playing with fire, but she can't resist. Queen Dido suspects nothing, until one fateful night ...Secrets are revealed, hearts are broken and as dawn breaks, a terrible tragedy unfolds. This is a passionate tale of love, betrayal and revenge.

Review:

"Geras's ability to weave a touching new tale in with the well-known one is unique to modern children's authors; Dido is a shining new jewel to her crown. An excellent children's novel" -- Amanda Craig The Times "A perfect maelstrom of love, jealousy, fate and caprice ... Dido is right up there with some of the other masterful retellings of myth and legend" -- Jill Murphy The Bookbag "An absolute must, this retelling of a classic brings together all the thrilling elements of a deadly love story. Full of passion, mysticism and betrayal" Now Magazine "As always with Adele Geras's work, the characters walk off the page, she brings the place wonderfully to life, you can hear the sounds and smell the scents - and it's another page-turner" Leslie Wilson Blog "Roman gods and goddesses walk among the human characters, giving the story an effective other-worldly feeling ... Demanding but rewarding" Jewish Chronicle
