In this issue: Dika’s transition into Sappho’s school runs smoothly at first, but the bookish Spartan girl doesn’t manage very well at Gymnasium. She is teamed up with the athletic Hero of Gyaros. It soon becomes known that Hero has much more than a passing interest in Dika.
When Dika’s nightmares worsen, Sappho and Isthia plan a day trip to Ephesus where they beg a consultation with the Priestesses of Kybele.
A gifted priestess at the temple takes Dika to herself for the day and helps the Spartan girl come to terms with her abilities and who she really is.
Author’s note: Many, many thanks to Laura Seabrook, whose intensive research on the Priestesses of Kybele greatly enriched this issue of House of the Muses.
The highly-acclaimed, award-winning House of the Muses miniseries is on sale now at Wowio!
A tale from ancient history, compiled from the writings of a Greek poet and her friend. But in “The House of the Muses,” you'll read it through the modern media we know as the Graphic Novel. And the poet is Sappho, so it's no surprise that passion is as omnipresent as the power politics of slave ownership and family intrigues. House of the Muses: The Latter Days of Sappho of Lesbos introduces us to Mnasidika of Sparta, a girl with a stolen destiny, and how she made her journey to Lesbos. At the end of her adventures, she would write the one poem that the legendary Poetess of Mytilene would safeguard among her treasured works forever.
