Unbelievably good. Catchy, true to the characters, tragic and exciting and spotted with bloodshed but this love story is truly worth reading. Thank you for posting this.

Oh, I'm starting to like this better than the movie - the Briseis/Achilles interaction.

I felt like I was reading poetry instead of prose with every chapter of your story, that's how lyrical and amazing your writing is! A very good job, I love the evolution of Briseis' journey and her final, complete, meeting with Achilles and the pomegranate. Excellent work. -November

The way you tell Briseis' and Achilles' story is beautifully done.
I thought you created an incredibly interesting plot and your execution of it was wonderful.
I was in tears throughout the reunion scene in this last chapter. I felt like I was witnessing it unfold before me-the description of it all was so vivid and touching.
I applaud you for taking this story on and hope that you will continue to write more in the future. This story is certainly going on my Favorites! Bravo.

That was Awesome. Very well written. I love the metaphors displayed in this story, i think you should write a sequel.

I just read this from start to finish today and I must say you spun a beautiful tale. Your beautiful imagery/metaphors/etc. blew me away (a favorite being the gossip as whispers between snakes in a barrel). My favorite moments still have to be the ones between Briseis and Achilles - you kept them believable and their wit kept me smiling. Thank you for writing this and I hope to read more from you :D

"But this is all right, and this is why: because it is Agamemnon, and not Achilles, that grasps her so hatefully by the neck and by the hair, her hands and her dagger have no scruples at finding a sheath within the king of kings' neck where she had been so stricken by hesitation over the neck of Achilles."
Excellent! Go Briseis!

This story is truly an amazement. Rest assured, your tale has rewritten the Homeric and other versions seamlessly. I've never imagined that an "Achilles isn't dead" story could be handled with such grace and style. Your world is immersive; it builds on a mythology and adds to it; it does credit to the traditions it draws from. What a plot! The Carthaginians, Lady Fortune, the augur of the bird! Your treatment of each of the characters is perfect-I especially loved the delicacy with which you handled Paris, difficult because he is both more than a nancy boy and less than a hero. Your retelling of scenes from the movie is also brilliant, non-redundant, and a pleasure to read. Your thematic coherence goes above and beyond what I had ever expected to find in these perilous (pulp) heaps of fanfict; may you write copiously and always know just how incredibly talented you are.
