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
‘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 . . .

‘A fun romp through the world’s greatest story. Fry’s knowledge of the world – ancient and modern – bursts through’ Daily Telegraph
‘Hugely successful, graceful’ The Times
