I say YES a hundred times to Oenone:)- I patienly waited (it felt like ages though:)) for a paperback version while it was already released as an e-book (I’m a stubborn traditionalist:)). My patience was rewarded big time- I was really impressed- the book is excellent:) Firstly, I love the cover- it feels like the mysterious green eye hides some secrets behind and you want to discover them right away. Secondly, the book is written in such style, that it catches your attention instantly, grabs you straight at the beginning and doesn’t loosen the grip till the end- I literally couldn’t stop reading:). The plot is focused on the lives of two close friends: Evy and Laura, whose devotion and love to each other and family is boundless. Getting to know them while turning page after page was so easy and natural- actually it felt like I knew them already:)- music they listened to, movies they watched, books they read, intertwined with their specific and charming sense of humor- it all felt so familiar and known. I laughed out loud with them:) The idyll, however, doesn’t last long- Laura’s unfortunate serious sickness and Evy’s love problems turn their lives upside down, test their friendship and probe their strenght and resilience. `A drowning man clutches at a straw’ so do our characters, they clutch at the mysterious and enigmatic `person’, who later on severly complicates their lives. Suffice to say, the girls open the Pandora’s box and realize they have to do everything in their power to put things right back. Otherwise they will pay a heavy price- implications are far more disturbing they could have foreseen. Would they achieve their goal or not? And who is that mystic and miraculous, yet dangerous individual they were dealing with? You must find out:)
I strongly recommend Oenone- it’s a wonderful, well conceived read:) The plot referring to Greek mythology is fascinating, refreshing and stimulating. Two worlds are skilfully interconnected in such way that an engaged reader keeps on turning page after page to see what will happen next. Relationships between characters are very real- they laugh, fool around, make love, quarrel, cry and reconcile- all of it really makes you feel connected with them, feel for them and, obviously, want more of them:) I really love the world Agatha has created and I’m impatiently waiting for more:) Already addicted:)

A beautifully written novel about two friends and their encounter with the supernatural. Ive been looking for fresh reading material for some time and Oenone definitely hit the spot! This novel has everything, a touch of romance, friendship, reality, and just enough magic to make it fun! the story revolves around two friends Evy and Laura. Each living their own lives and consumed by their own problems but forever leaning on each other. From Evy longing for her boss Jeff, to Laura longing to be healthy, not one detail is lost in Agatha Rae’s writing, I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for something fresh and new!

Are you looking for something different to read? This is the one for you. Although this book has several characters to keep up with, it does nothing to take away from the story. It’s written in a unique style and delves into mythology that has obviously been well-researched.

Touching and well-written, I think if you enjoy this genre, then you’ll not be disappointed. Give Oenone a shot.

Wasn’t sure where this was going, but the more I read, the more intrigued I became!

The story and its characters had me hooked and their emotions and daily lives were so true to life it was like reading about people I knew. The outcome was totally unexpected, as well as completely new and exciting!

The writer has a unique style that makes it a fun read if you’re craving something different! If you are one of those people that wonder; What if? You’ll love where this story takes you!
