Thessaly
Thessaly: The Just City, The Philosopher Kings, Necessity | Jo Walton
4 posts | 2 read | 6 to read
For the first time, Jo Waltons critically acclaimed, genre-defying trilogy Thessaly: The Just City, The Philosopher Kings, Necessity will be available in a trade paperback omnibus. The goddess Athena and her brother Apollo think they are creating a utopia. Populate the island of Atlantis with extraordinary men, women, and children from throughout history. Become human and integrate with the harmonious society forged on the tenets of Platos Republic. But they soon find out even paradise is susceptible to the unpredictability, violence, and lust of mortals and immortals alike. Spanning from sandy shores to the farthest reaches of the galaxy, gods and humans contend with their vices on a quest to achieve the ultimate society in critically acclaimed author Jo Walton's vigorous exploration of the human condition, Thessaly.

I loved book 1 in this trilogy, and really enjoyed books 2 and 3. I liked the combination of mythology, time travel and science fiction, and thought over all it was a well-written series. Will likely reread at some point in the future, and will definitely be checking out some of her other books. 4/5 #januaryreads #bigbook #mythology #scifi
