Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, to spotlight the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read.




Hera by Jennifer Saint
Expected publication: May 23, 2024 by Wildfire

The enthralling tale of a powerful Greek goddess maligned in both myth and ancient history, as told by Sunday Times bestselling author Jennifer Saint.

When Hera, immortal goddess and daughter of the ancient Titan Cronos, helps her brother Zeus to overthrow their tyrannical father, she dreams of ruling at his side.

As they establish their reign on Mount Olympus, Hera suspects that Zeus might be just as ruthless and cruel as the father they betrayed.

She was always born to rule, but must she lose herself in perpetuating this cycle of violence and cruelty? Or can she find a way to forge a better world?

Often portrayed as the jealous wife or the wicked stepmother, this retelling captures the many sides of Hera, vengeful when she needs to be but also compassionate and mostly importantly, an all-powerful queen to the gods.



I have not read the author’s previous book Atalanta yet (definitely gonna try to dive into it before this upcoming one comes out) but does that make me less excited for Hera? Hell no! I’m especially excited for this one because it’s going to be a retelling of the queen of the gods, Hera. I’m really excited to see Jennifer Saint’s take on her.



Are you also looking forward to this book? What do you think of it?
