The Care and Feeding of Griffins (Lords of Arcadia Book 1)
Jeepers creepers, just like the song. Where did she get those eyes? Christ, she could be at this all night. The kitchen was trashed, and unless the care service had just up and quit while Mara was away, all this mess had happened after the girl left for the day at six. Active, right. It looked like her mom had just opened up every Lunchsnax in the fridge, taken one bite, dropped it, and opened up the next.
When did this happen?
When did her austere, somewhat brittle mother turn into a crazy person? How did a woman go from a little chronic depression to…to wallowing in her own frigging Lunchsnax? She needed to hire a live-in, that was all there was to it. God damn it. Caroline appeared in the doorway, lightly swaying on her feet. Where did you put my letter? It was laziness, pure and simple. Being crazy was easier than picking up after herself, easier than living life and doing things.
She was thinking of the girls. There had been a lot of girls. Two hundred, and orders for a refrigerator lock.

And if Jenny pocketed the change, as Jenny so often did in her cheerfully dishonest way , so be it. Mara was not in the mood to deal with it, and throwing money at the things one was not in the mood to handle was the Warner way. Oh no. Amazing that she could do that and drink at the same time. She cried and wished she were back in Venice, back on her honeymoon when Cade still loved her. She wished she were back in a time before this horrible, ice-eyed person ever existed. She thumbed through half a dozen memories before she found one in the right time frame or at least, one with her mother in a stained blouse and uneven hair, looking vague as she walked with fat, happy Rosalie up to the glass doors.
Rosalie made this a Monday or a Wednesday.

The letter was a big manila envelope. Seemed excessive. Mara let the memory spool out through her phantom hands, watching closely. Her mom came home, made poor Rosalie work too damn hard to make sure she got fed, and then went upstairs. She shuffled vapidly through the house and finally put the letter in the linen closet where she picked up some clean sheets.
All opinions expressed here are entirely my own. To be honest, this might not be the best fantasy series you've ever read, but R.

Whether Alexander, the son of Philip, met his end by this poison I do not know for certain, but I do know that there is a story to this effect. To this cave, legend says, the daughters of Proitos fled when struck with madness; Melampos by secret sacrifices and purifications brought them down to a place called Lusi. Most of the Aroanian mountain belongs to Pheneus, but Lusi is on the borders of Kleitor. Well, the daughters of Proitos were brought down by Melampos to Lusi, and healed of their madness in a sanctuary of Artemis. Wherefore [ 32 ] this Artemis is called Hemerasia She who soothes by the Clitorians [people of Kleitor].
These Cynaetheans live more than forty stadium-lengths from … and in their marketplace have been made altars of the gods and a statue of the Emperor Hadrian. This is the manner of their sacrifice. Here there is a spring of cold water, about two stadium-lengths away from the city, and above it grows a plane tree.
For this reason they call the spring Alyssus Curer of madness. So it would appear that the Arcadians have in the water near Pheneus, called the Styx, a thing made to be a mischief to man, while the spring among the Cynaetheans is a boon to make up for the bane in the other place. By it the road goes down to a place called Lykouria, which is the boundary between Pheneus and Kleitor.
I heard that the water making a lake in the territory of Pheneus, descending into the chasms in the mountains, rises here and forms the source of the Ladon, but I cannot say for certain whether this is true or not.

The Ladon is the most lovely river in Greece, and is also famous for the legend of Daphne that the poets tell. Oinomaos, prince of Pisa, had a son Leukippos. Leukippos fell in love with Daphne, but despaired of winning her to be his wife by an open courtship, as she avoided all the male sex.
The following trick occurred to him by which to get her. Leukippos was growing his hair long for the river Alpheios. As he was thought to be a girl, surpassed the other girls in nobility of birth and skill in hunting, and was besides most assiduous in his attentions, he drew Daphne into a deep friendship. Forthwith Daphne and the other girl conceived a longing to swim in the Ladon, and stripped Leukippos in spite of his reluctance. Then, seeing that he was not a girl, they killed him with their javelins and daggers. From the source of the Ladon, Kleitor is sixty stadium-lengths away, and the road from the source of the Ladon is a narrow gorge alongside the river Aroanios.
Near the city you will cross the river called the Kleitor. The Kleitor flows into the Aroanios, at a point not more than seven stadium-lengths from the city. These dappled fish, it is said, utter a cry like that of the thrush. I have seen fish that have been caught, but I never heard their cry, though I waited by the river even until sunset, at which time the fish were said to cry most.
The most celebrated sanctuaries of the Clitorians [people of Kleitor] are those of Demeter, Asklepios and, thirdly, Eileithuia … to be, and gave no number for them. There are also images of them in bronze.
