About the Book:

Wrath of Olympus: Ships of Britannia, Book 1
by E. M. Kkoulla
Publication: December 9, 2020
Genre: Fantasy

The Roman Empire never fell. The Gods are real. Ships are alive.

In the Province of Britannia, ruled by descendants of King Arthur and on the brink of an industrial revolution, young Maia Abella is on the run. Something unseen has murdered her cruel mistress and she’s being blamed. The streets and factories of Portus are no place for a friendless girl, trapped in events beyond her control.

The city authorities and the Royal Navy are both desperate to find her - one investigating a killer, the other to recruit her, while the deadly legacy of a tragic past stalks her every step.

Aided by Raven, an ancient, blind Mage with a terrible secret and Milo, Crown Agent and spy, Maia must discover and overcome the fatal consequences of her birth.

Meanwhile, the Gods are making their moves. Not all of them are friendly.

"The multi layering of the story is well executed, and small hints are revisited throughout, with reveals that bring the whole thing together."
-Beth's Bookcase
"The characters are well rounded and Maia in particular has great depth. If you liked Live Ship Traders by Robin Hobb, you’ll definitely enjoy this one too."
-The Book Viewer
"The world-building is created with such beautiful words."

About the Author:

I'm of mixed British/Greek-Cypriot heritage and live with my husband and two feline overlords, Zeus and Hades, in County Durham, UK. After many years of teaching very small children, I decided to put my degree in Classical Studies and long involvement with 17thC re-enactment to good use by combining them in my fantasy adventure series. I love history, reading, gardening and anything with gods and monsters trashing the landscape. You can find me on fb on my Ships of Britannia page and on Twitter @EKkoulla.
