Publisher's Summary

The first book in an unmissable and ferociously exciting adventure series for listeners of David Gemmell, Christian Cameron, and Simon Scarrow.

Greece is in turmoil, divided by feuding kingdoms desiring wealth, power, and revenge. When young soldier Eperitus comes to the aid of a group of embattled warriors, little does he know he will join the charismatic Odysseus, Prince of Ithaca, on a legendary quest to save his homeland.

Odysseus travels to Sparta to join the most famous heroes in paying suit to the sensuous Helen. Armed with nothing but his wits, he enters a treacherous world of warfare and politics to compete for the greatest prize in Greece.

But few care for the problems of an impoverished soldier when war with Troy beckons....

Brilliant re-imagining of Odysseus before Troy

The story combined with the performance made for an absolutely delightful experience. I did not want the book to end and wished it had gone on and on with more adventures. The introduction of a non-Homeric character, Eperitus, was a master stroke. We see everything through his eyes. He is our guide through this ancient landscape peopled with the familiar characters from Homer's epics. If you enjoy historical/mythic fiction from ancient Greece, and especially if you love the Odyssey, you will truly find this audiobook up to the high mark set by, for example, Mary Renault, Madeline Miller, and Pat Barker.
