Exiled from her palace by a bloody coup, an empress travels the dangerous wilds of her kingdom in search of enlightenment--and righteous vengeance The empress Tathea is awakened by the sounds of insurrection. The army, the aristocracy, and the royal guard have all turned against her husband, and stained the palace with his blood. Were she an ordinary ruler, she might follow him to the grave, but Tathea is a child of the wild lands. She comes from the desert, so to the desert she flees.   Across the kingdom she travels, searching for shelter, friendship, and an explanation for the tragedy that destroyed her old life. As she fights to stay alive, she finds a book whose message might tip the scales in the battle between good and evil, changing the world forever. If her life is to have meaning, Tathea will have to spread the word.   Tathea is the first book in the Tathea series, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.… (mais)

I wanted to like this fantasy novel by Anne Perry, since I really like her mystery/ detective novels. I liked that it was a fantasy world that had histories of cultures, rival civilizations, traditions and beliefs all wrapped in. And when some of the fantasy elements appeared, it was cool. But most of them were good/evil manifestations, with really obvious parallels to the Bible, and that's when she lost me. There's a flood, there's a savior that redeems everlasting life for everyone in another world, there's temptation... maybe if there had been fewer parallels it would have been a subtle allusion, and that would have been easier to take. As it is, I felt repelled by the religious aspect, despite all the beautiful language and the well-woven (but long) epic journey theme. ( )

A strange, yet intriguing allegory of the Christian Church. It's the first of a trilogy. It you enjoy good stories and Christian allegory, read this. It's different but in a good way. ( )

The first third of this fantasy reminded me of A Pilgrim's Progress, the title protagonist then exits her dream back into a reality not unlike Flaubert's Salammbo which is more arresting reading. I found myself especially liking this heroine and her relationships with Alexius and Eleni as well as the High Priest, Tugomir, who provides a small measure of comic relief for this essentially serious but entertaining theodicy.

Supposed to be a fantasy, but really a very episodic allegory, where the heroine faces this and then that and the other thing, each clearly intended to teach her some moral lesson or other. Not at all enjoyable to read. Like being hit over the head with a lesson book over and over. ( )
