Description

Pre-order Stephen Fry’s bewitching retelling of the legend of Troy – a tale of love and war, passion and power – following his sensational bestsellers MYTHOS and HEROES

‘Inimitable’ OBSERVER
‘A delight’ DAILY TELEGRAPH
________

‘Troy. The most marvellous kingdom in all the world . . .’

Paris the Trojan has kidnapped Helen, Greek queen and most beautiful woman of the ancient world.

A thousand ships give chase and lay siege to Troy. Yet the city stands resolutely against Greek might.

Only invulnerable Achilles and wily Odysseus may lead them to victory – but the passions of mortals merely amuse the Gods and blood is easily spilled on distant shores . . .
