Product Description

Review

"This is how the oldest tales should be read and known. Gemmell is a master of plot, but his triumph is creating men and women so real that their trials are agony and their triumph is glorious" (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'" (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 Scott) --This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

'History and legend combine in the epic re-creation of the Troy myth'Conn Iggulden

War is looming, and all the kings of the Great Green are gathering, each with their own dark plans of conquest and plunder.

Into this maelstrom of treachery come three travellers: Piria, a runaway priestess nursing a terrible secret; Kalliades, a warrior with high ideals and a legendary sword; and his close friend Banokles, who will carve his own legend in the battles to come.

Together they journey to the fabled city of Troy, where a darkness is falling that will eclipse the triumphs and personal tragedies of ordinary mortals for centuries to come.

The Sunday Times bestseller
