Rise of the Argonauts is accurately coined as a creative retelling of Jason's exploits, the legends behind what drove him to board the Argo with his band of men and seek out a precious artifact. Jason's wife was assasinated during their wedding and he has discovered from the Oracle that the golden fleece can ressurect her, but nobody knows where it is. Perhaps the descendants of the four patron gods Jason follows have some ideas on where it might be hidden? It's off to explore the mythological greek islands, eight in total, to find the four descendants that have the gods' blood. Too bad one of the four is a very angry father-in-law, but what can a man do?
