Description

Darkness falls on the Great Green, and the Ancient World is fiercely divided. On the killing fields outside the golden city of Troy, forces loyal to the Mykene King mass. Among them is Odysseus, fabled storyteller and reluctant ally to the Mykene, who knows that he must soon face his former friends in deadly combat. Within the city, the Trojan king waits. Ailing and bitter, his hope is pinned on two heroes: his favourite son Hektor, and the dread Helikaon who will wreak terrible vengeance for the death of his wife at Mykene hands. War has been declared. As enemies, who are also kinsmen, are filled with bloodlust, they know that many of them will die, and that some will become heroes: heroes who will live for ever in a story that will echo down the centuries.show more

Review quote

"History and legend combine in the epic re-creation of the Troy myth" -- Conn Iggulden "David Gemmell carries us away into a four-cornered wholly convincing cosmos... so masterfully done that the reader thinks, "Ah, this is what it was really like"" -- Stephen Pressfield "Gripping and fast-paced, intelligent and intensely readable... should appeal to anyone who enjoys an action-packed historical epic" -- Joanne Harris "The loyalties and betrayals, the love and the hate, the endless, everlasting courage of the men - and the women - of both sides are brought to life in this vivid, inspirational recreation of the Troy myth" -- Manda Scottshow more
