1. Black Ships–Jo Graham

Genre: Historical Fiction/Magical Realism

Rating: Very Very Good

A retelling of the Aeneid, through the eyes of a young girl enslaved when Troy falls. She is hurt, and no longer able to work, is then given to the temple of the Lady of the Dead as an acolyte, who when grown, becomes the chosen of the Lady and the Sybil to Aeneas.

Written beautifully, plainly and clearly told with no fake embellishments,  moving and engrossing.

What a great book to start the year with.
