"Left me breathless and spellbound. I wanted to live inside its pages."
--Karen Hooper, Author of Tangled Tides
Can we change our stars?
Eva must accept the tragic fate her mother has chosen for her, to be forever chained to the boy who will become the human form of the Greek river god. But Tristan, the Azorean Islander boy she loves, has willingly chosen another destiny, one fraught with just as much danger and sorrow. Are Eva and Tristan destined to live forever together but eternally apart? Diogo, an intense boy driven by a mysterious power, will drive them even further apart if they cannot find a way to break the curse they've fallen under.
Artemis Rising was inspired by an unforgettable 2-year stay in the Azores Islands. The novel is based on the legend of Tristan and Isolde and the Greek myth of Alpheus and Arethusa.
