This is the third book in the series and I understand a fourth book is now available called "The Oracles of Troy". I read the first three twice and enjoyed them immensely. Illife is a very good writer and his renditions of the adventures of Odysseus at Troy make for a fascinating read. His books bring the story of the Iliad to life (and the events leading up to the war) and they are all real page turners. Anyone teaching the Iliad will do well to have his or her students read Iliffe's novels first, before embarking on Homer's Iliad itself.

Great read. A perfect smattering of hand to hand action, adventure, and small doses of divine intervention. This complete series is a fun yarn to read, where the books tie in perfectly together. If you like reading about Greek military history, then you will enjoy Iliffe's books, its a nice break from strict military history, delving into a little fantasy as well.

This is a sequel, and many fall short of the original book. That having been said, I kept waiting for the pace to pick up, but it never did. I persevered through the whole book to no avail.

A good, clean fun take on Odysseus and the Trojan war. Reads very well and, according to the author, relies heavily on traditional legends surrounding Helen, Paris, Achilles, and more.
