    This book was a cross between Indiana Jones in the Temple of Doom and Jason and the Argonauts, but certainly not a romance, and also very loosely historical The hero heroine romantic interactions and whole story building is non existent Why does this kidnapped girl Lia finds herself suddenly and arbitrarily in love with Lord Commander Paon, her rapist and captor, after barely one or two interactions is a wonder that escapes my mind and my interest to explain it I d say only 5% of this story i This book was a cross between Indiana Jones in the Temple of Doom and Jason and the Argonauts, but certainly not a romance, and also very loosely historical The hero heroine romantic interactions and whole story building is non existent Why does this kidnapped girl Lia finds herself suddenly and arbitrarily in love with Lord Commander Paon, her rapist and captor, after barely one or two interactions is a wonder that escapes my mind and my interest to explain it I d say only 5% of this story is romance oriented The rest is purely a book of adventures and bloody, irrational paganism and sacrifices to ancient gods in the Dark Ages I don t know why or how I finished it must be my own time in captivity during the covid 19 confinement , but I don t recommend anybody to read The Golden Savage Not even those interested in the history of Crete and the Minoan culture, or the legend of the mythical king Minos and the cult of the bull and the snakes in the ancient city of Knossos, for very little research and historical background can be discerned from this mindless, pointless, chaotic yarn spinned in The Golden Savage The very back cover note is misleading and makes this novel sound like a bodice ripper, which is not in the least And here I thought a book with such an unusual setting and time period as these would be original, fresh, and anything but disappointing and boring Joke s on me, surely

    Hm I ve been thinking about what to write since I finished this Since there was no review, I wanted to be sure to write one, so here goes.I read another of Anne Carsley s book when I was a kid, and rediscovered it and found out that she, too, was from Mississippi So I looked up the rest of her books There are only a handful, and I ordered several of them This is the first one I read, and it was a decent read, but very typical of its times, the early 80s.Pros This book was set in ancient Cr Hm I ve been thinking about what to write since I finished this Since there was no review, I wanted to be sure to write one, so here goes.I read another of Anne Carsley s book when I was a kid, and rediscovered it and found out that she, too, was from Mississippi So I looked up the rest of her books There are only a handful, and I ordered several of them This is the first one I read, and it was a decent read, but very typical of its times, the early 80s.Pros This book was set in ancient Crete and the surrounding areas, with a journey to England The setting is what initially brought me to this book, since it is unusual for a romance There is also a bunch of interesting material regarding Goddess worship and the Minoan bulls Cons Being from the early 80s, there is an unfortunately rapey element to the book And the lead characters falling in love was rather difficult to swallow since, other than sex, they had little meaningful interaction with each other that did not involve drawing apart from one another after intimacy.The book dragged a bit in the middle and at that point I would have agreed with the two star reviews The action picked up towards the finish and although the end seemed a little rushed, it wrapped up well and I was pleased enough to go ahead and give it three stars.If you like unusual settings and 80s style romance, you will probably enjoy this book If the idea of rape absolutely turns you off, you should skip this book
