Description

Three lives will change the destiny of nations. Helikaon, the young prince of Dardania, haunted by a scarred and traumatic childhood. The priestess Andromache, whose fiery spirit and fierce independence threatens the might of kings. And the legendary warrior Argurios, cloaked in loneliness and driven only by thoughts of revenge. In Troy they find a city torn apart by destructive rivalries - a maelstrom of jealousy, deceit and murderous treachery. And beyond its fabled walls blood-hungry enemies eye its riches and plot its downfall. It is a time of bravery and betrayal; a time of bloodshed and fear. A time for heroes.show more

Review quote

"History and legend combine in an epic recreation of the Troy myth" -- Conn Iggulden "David Gemmell carries us away to a four-cornered, wholly convincing cosmos, so masterfully done that the reader thinks, 'Ah this is what it was really like'" -- Steven 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

Our customer reviews

This is the BEST trilogy I have ever read! It is impossible to put down. I have never been able to read straight through a series until this one. This is a series I would highly recommend to anyone who likes historical fiction. It has brave strong heroes, great romances, and mysteries that continued to shock throughout the entire trilogy. Fantastic read!show more
