Some years have passed since Myrina reassembled the Moon Riders as a strong and potent force after the fall of Troy. During that time the brave warrior women have lived in peace. But now, once again, Myrina's life is savagely disrupted, this time by Neoptolemus, avenging son of Achilles. Slavery, storm, shipwreck and strife plague Myrina, her fate closely entwined with that of Iphigenia, daughter of Agamemnon.

This powerful and richly woven sequel to The Moon Riders is once again the blend of intriguing myth and inspired imagination for which Theresa Tomlinson has built an impressive reputation.show more
