& Taylor

Atalanta is the best hunter, swiftest runner, and the all-around most eligible bachelorette in ancient Greece. She’s also a woman with a secret: a fortune-teller has given her a stern warning to never marry. When her father—a powerful king—insists that she choose a husband, she hatches a clever plan to hold onto her freedom. Will Atalanta be able to outrun her father’s demands? Will the gods intervene in her story? And will fate catch up with her in the end?


In graphic novel format, retells the myth of the Greek princess, rejected by her father, raised by bears, won in marriage in a race by Melanion, and then changed into a lioness by an angry Aphrodite.
