Publisher's Summary

Three lives will change the destiny of nations. Helikaon, the young prince of Dardania, haunted by a scarred and traumatic childhood. The priestess Andromache, whose fiery spirit and fierce independence threatens the might of kings. And the legendary warrior Argurios, cloaked in loneliness and driven only by thoughts of revenge.

In Troy they find a city torn apart by destructive rivalries - a maelstrom of jealousy, deceit and murderous treachery. And beyond its fabled walls blood-hungry enemies eye its riches and plot its downfall. It is a time of bravery and betrayal; a time of bloodshed and fear. A time for heroes.

Effortless Perfection

A confluence of a great story and great narration producing what can only be described as sublime. Gemmel’s Troy anthology is an example of a level of storytelling every author should want to achieve.

At Last!

what can I say? I am a gigantic fan of David gemmell. I may have read every single one of his books and he is the only author who I keep around for future rereading. when I saw that basically every one of his books was now available on Audible I knew instantly the book that I wanted to download First.

his retelling of the Iliad is amazingly written as we see various characters from myth grounded in reality yet still emerge heroic, Brave, and worthy of the reverence so many students of literature and history bestow upon them. David gemmell has a reputation for writing simple stories with simple characters. That may have been true for some of his early novels, but this Trilogy represents him at the height of his skills. his characterization of Aeneas and andromache give them both volition and motivation despite being trapped in their respective roles in Bronze Age Greece.

after listening to an audiobook version of one of the stone Berrington novels by Stuart Woods, I thought to myself that some books just weren't made to be read aloud. while they are good books, and the dialogue is fine, the style of some authors just doesn't translate well to an audiobook format. I feared this for David gemmell. I wondered if this might have been why his books had never been made available in an audiobook format up until now. his dialogue is often very on the nose and when I Tried reading it out loud to my wife it didn't sound the same as it did in my head. the narrator of this book does a splendid job of making every line maintain the tone the author intended.

I fully intend on getting the next book and the next, and then moving on to the rest of his collection. And I highly recommend that you do the same.

A Favourite

I first read this book over ten years ago, while I was in high school. It flared in me a passion for the bronze age and the Trojan War specifically. It is this story that truly captures the enchanting romanticism of the age (or rather, of the stories of that age) above all others. This has been my fourth read-through now, which is rare thing. I can only name a few other titles I've wanted to read even twice.

I'd been waiting for an audiobook version ever since I started indulging in this medium, and I can happily say Thomas Judd has done an excellent job. Consider this fan extremely satisfied.

Excellent story, narrator a bit weak

Excellent story, narrator a bit weak. I love this trilogy so will persevere, but the narrator is a bit grating. His delivery is quite flat and women's voices are not his strong point. A shame, as it really is an excellent book.

Great fantasy book familiar Greek myths fresh view

Fantastic book. Familiar backdrop of the Greek myths told a new by David Gemmell.

I loved it so much I bought the 2nd book before I finished this one so I could give stright into part 2.

Swords, battles, gods, love, blood; all the right ingredients of a classic fantasy novel spun together in a new modern voice by words-smith Gemmell.
