From Publisher Blurb:
The Follow Your Fates series enlists you the reader as the main character in the classic literature of ancient Greece and Rome. You assume the identity of each character, follow his story, and make the decisions he makes. Each decision you make will determine whether or not you continue to follow your fate, or whether your fate will quickly come to an end. Make the right choices, and you too can complete the quests of the greatest heroes of the ancient world.
Each Follow Your Fates story adheres to the story of its ancient counterpart. If you successfully follow your fate, you will experience firsthand the story of the ancient original. For instance, in order to complete the full story of The Wrath of Achilles, you must make the decisions that Achilles makes. But do not expect these decisions to be obvious or logical. Many of these decision in fact might seem wrong or uncomfortable by today’s standards. You may find yourself making decisions that you don’t agree with so that you can continue to follow your fate. These differences, however, provide an important opportunity for comparison and are the unique aspect of this series: in a more traditional format you the reader remain detached from the character and analyze his decisions objectively; you are not invested in those decisions in any way. In the Follow Your Fates series you yourself are making these decisions; you are forced to analyze your own motivations and reasoning. You should consider what made you make your decision and what might have made the character make his decision. In this way, you will learn not only about the ancient world and its values but also about yourself and your values.
