In Ancient Greece, the invocation "May the gods watch over you" was more than a spoken blessing. It is an entreaty for divine benevolence.
Phoibe, daughter of Hera, is content. Raised by her aunt, her life is quiet, filled with milling grain and spinning wool. But after her Hestia celebration, Eros, god of love, visits the small town of Belen. And now, Phoibe will have to choose—
If she marries a mortal, she risks eternal solitude for a moment of love.
If she follows her heart, she risks spurning a god.
The gods are enormously powerful, but they don’t fix problems.
They make bigger ones.
Uncover the curse. . .
Origin of the Sphinx is a prequel novella in the Curse of the Sphinx series.  

Origin of the Sphinx by Raye Wagner (Sphinx, #0.5)

Origin of the Sphinx (Sphinx, #0.5)Reading a prequel to a fabulous series and gaining some HUGE background information is just like getting your favorite hot fudge sundae with real whipped cream on top! Origin of the Sphinx by Raye Wagner tells the history of how an innocent baby is cursed to become the Sphinx because her mother married for love, spurning one self-centered god. This is a love story that will taint future generations in the Sphinx series without giving too much away!

Phoibe was the daughter of Hera, rejected by her stepmother and raised by her aunt. She grew up living a simple, hard-working life when her heart was captured by a handsome and kind mortal man. At that same time, she meets the god, Eros, and misunderstands the consequences of spurning his attentions.

Once again, Raye Wagner knocks this little gem out of the ballpark. Filled with sweet romance, young innocence and the wrath of a selfish god, the Origin of the Sphinx is the perfect tale that adds depth and that special slice of information that makes The Sphinx series even more riveting!

Read before the series or after, makes no difference, it will still be a fascinating eye-opener!

I received this copy from Raye Wagner in exchange for my honest review.
