Editorial Reviews


*"In this sequel to Troy, Geras once again shows her skill at fashioning multi-dimensional characters from mythological figures and making them accessible to a 21st-century audience...Lovers of Greek mythology will appreciate the authentic flavor of this book, but readers need not be familiar with The Odyssey to follow the plot or to recognize themes of loyalty and unrequited love, which are brilliantly and movingly displayed throughout this ambitious, gripping novel." -Publishers Weekly (January 2, 2006, starred review)

About the Author

ADELE GERAS is the celebrated author of many stories and novels, including Troy and the Egerton Hall trilogy: The Tower Room, Watching the Roses, and Pictures of the Night. She lives in Manchester, England.
