Calypso wishes for adventure. Living eternally in paradise may sound like fun, but to Calypso, her perfect island is a cage. She wants out, and she wants out NOW, but a powerful enchantment is keeping her there forever, and keeping all others out. A long time ago, she was a princess….but time passes differently on her island, and years have passed in the outside world.
Life is on a steady curve upwards for Odysseus. As the young prince of Ithaca, he is loved by everyone. But when he washes up on a beautiful island after his ship is wrecked by a sea monster, everything he knew changes.
As Calypso and Odysseus become friends, and maybe a little more than friends, they discover treachery of a kind that neither has seen before. And as the war between their two kingdoms steadily worsens, they will discover if the power of love is strong enough to bring peace….or if it will be snuffed out.
Inspired by the story of Calypso and Odysseus in Homer’s Odyssey, Calypso is a story that will test the strength of young love through adventure, villainy, and even death.
