Amidst turmoil, Perse emerges as a beacon of peace, driven by resilience despite loss. Kouidou-Giles's "Perse" delves into themes of tragedy, resilience, and the pursuit of peace amidst strife, standing as a poignant addition to the Greek myth-inspired series."

Advanced Praise for Circle of Peace - A Greek Tale of Perse's Great Hall

In ancient Greece, one goddess will dare—to outwit her powerful sun-god husband, to defy the war-hawk Olympian gods, and to rally sister goddesses in a bold strategy for peace. In Circle of Peace, Queen Perse epitomizes beauty, allure, and wisdom, endeavoring to safeguard the world for innocent mortals.
