Pan, both goat and god, is a curious being who roams nature searching, wondering, and frolicking with maenads and satyrs. He plays melodies on his reed flute, wooing animals to listen. He is a creature of mystery and delight. One day in his travels, Pan meets Iphigenia, a human raised as the daughter of King Agamemnon and Queen Clytemnestra. Pan is captivated by the young princess. Set against a landscape of myth and legend, Napoli’s latest tale is a love story wrought with sincere emotion and all that is great about the Gods.

Another breathtaking novel from Napoli using Greek mythology as a base. She tells of Pan's life and powers with sympathy and inteligence, giving him respect he doesn't usually get as a minor demigod. His friendship and feeling for Iphigenia is both beautiful and heartbreaking, as those who know the story of the seige of Troy also know her fate. Absolutely wonderful book, a must-read for anyone, adult or teen.
