Vous êtes née d’un roi, mais vous épousez un tyran. Vous assistez, impuissante, au sacrifice de votre enfant pour apaiser les dieux. Vous le regardez faire la guerre sur un rivage étranger et vous vous réconfortez avec vos propres pensées violentes.

Vous jouez le rôle, trompant les ennemis qui vous refusent la justice. Lentement, vous complotez.

Vous êtes Clytemnestre.

Mais lorsque le mari qui vous possède revient en triomphe, que se passe-t-il ?

Acceptation ou vengeance – l’infamie suit les deux. Vous attendez donc votre heure, jusqu’à ce que vous puissiez forcer la main des dieux et vous venger. Jusqu’à ce que tu te lèves. Car vous avez compris quelque chose que les autres n’ont pas. Si le pouvoir ne vous est pas donné, vous devez le prendre vous-même.

Un roman flamboyant situé dans le monde de la Grèce antique et raconté à travers les yeux de sa plus grande protagoniste féminine, une histoire palpitante de pouvoir et de prophéties, de haine, d’amour et d’une reine inoubliable qui infligeait férocement la mort à ceux qui lui faisaient du tort.


You are born to a king, but marry a tyrant. You stand helplessly as he sacrifices your child to placate the gods. You watch him wage war on a foreign shore and comfort yourself with violent thoughts of your own.

You play the part, fooling enemies who deny you justice. Slowly, you plot.

You are Clytemnestra.

But when the husband who owns you returns in triumph, what then?

Acceptance or vengeance – infamy follows both. So you bide your time and wait, until you might force the gods’ hands and take revenge. Until you rise. For you understood something that the others don’t. If power isn’t given to you, you have to take it for yourself.

A blazing novel set in the world of Ancient Greece and told through the eyes of its greatest female protagonist, this is a thrilling tale of power and prophecies, of hatred, love, and of an unforgettable Queen who fiercely dealt out death to those who wronged her.

Costanza Casati was born in Texas in 1995, grew up in a village in Northern Italy and lived in the UK for five years. Before moving to London, she attended a classical Liceo in Italy, where she studied Ancient Greek, and Ancient Greek literature, for five years.

Clytemnestra is a literary tour de force—a novel of passion and vengeance set in Ancient Greece.”  — Foreword

“Savage, passionate, and absolutely spellbinding. Costanza Casati’s recreation of Sparta is astonishing—you feel you are with Clytemnestra, completely immersed in the brutal world she inhabits with her siblings, whose complex relationships are drawn with skill and tenderness. Clytemnestra’s rage, her heartbreak, and her determination radiate off the page—I was utterly gripped.”  — Elodie Harper, bestselling author of The Wolf Den  

“What a pleasure to fall in love with Clytemnestra through the mind of Costanza Casati, who renders a singularly vibrant Greece, populated by familiar characters and absolutely alive with emotion and suspense. Casati reveals a Clytemnestra we’ve never met before: fiercely intelligent, passionate, and loving – and willing to do anything to avenge the ones she loves.”  — Naomi Krupitsky, New York Times bestselling author of The Family

“Ablaze with transporting moments of deep tenderness and visceral ferocity, Casati’s Clytemnestra gives the phrase ‘fight like a girl’ its rightfully heroic and empowering meaning! Beautifully told in a style that pays nimble homage to classic Greek mythology, Clytemnestra is a rich and compelling read, and even more so for every woman who has ever had to fight in any arena of life to reclaim her power. I thoroughly enjoyed Casati’s Clytemnestra, and highly recommend it as a brilliant and exceptional new addition to the pantheon of Greek myth retelling must-reads!”  — Buki Papillon, author of An Ordinary Wonder

“Crackles with vivid fury, passion and strength. A powerful, thought-provoking portrayal of a fascinating and complicated woman framed in beautiful prose. I loved it.”  — Jennifer Saint, bestselling author of Ariadne and Electra

“Bold and elegant, Costanza Casati’s debut bursts onto the page in flashes of light. This book deconstructs Clytemnestra’s infamy and then, with tremendous empathy and wisdom, reconstructs her into an enthrallingly complex figure filled with passion and spirit. This fiery tale of revenge and desire really is the stuff of legend—Casati’s unflinching storytelling is irresistible.” — Sarah Priscus, author of Groupies

“Powerful and sympathetic, Clytemnestra shines a light on Helen of Troy’s overshadowed sister. Crafted with page-turning suspense, Casati spins a mesmerizing story of an ambitious warrior queen who must use all her skill to protect herself and those she loves from men who view women not as equals, but as pawns to be sacrificed upon the altars of lust, greed, and fame. An ancient and intriguing tale made fresh for today’s 21st century battles.”  — Liz Michalski, author of Darling Girl

Clytemnestra redefines the retelling genre with a heroine who, instead of enduring suffering, avenges it. Complex characters, stylish writing and a glimpse into the heart of one of history’s most reviled women – Casati’s Clytemnestra is a self-determined warrior queen.” — Annie Garthwaite, acclaimed author of Cecily
