Product description

Review

"Manfredi beautifully retells Homer's epic poem, the Iliad, in a classical manner, which at first seems stilted to our modern ears but grows increasingly lyrical as the style and language enhance the reader's experience of rediscovering an ancient tale. This masterpiece will be eagerly devoured by those who enjoy the works of Bernard Cornwell and Steven Pressfield." --"Library Journal" (Starred Review)
"A tantalizing story . . . This is a beautifully told tale, and fans of novels about the great characters of Greek mythology will relish the story and eagerly await the final volume." --"Booklist"
Praise for Valerio Massimo Manfredi
"Remarkable . . . one of life's unalloyed pleasures." --"The New York Times"
"Constructs his narrative with a methodical hand . . . His simple descriptions of rural life . . . capture a lost way of life." --"The New Yorker"
"Manfredi's narration of ancient Greek history owes as much to John Ford and George Lucas as it does to Herodotus." --"Kirkus Reviews"
"A masterful storyteller, carefully weaving in political and military history, realistically describing the brutality of hoplite warfare and vividly depicting the treachery and betrayal of kings." --"Publishers Weekly"
