Publisher's Summary

A splendid new fantasy by the author of Ariadne’s Web.

Fred Saberhagen, New York Times best-selling author of the Berzerker Series, continues to puts his own twist on Greek mythology, continuing the series that kicked off with The Face of Apollo and Ariadne’s Web with Book III, The Arms of Hercules.

Hercules is the son of the nearly omnipotent Zeus, King of the Gods, and of a human mother whose beauty sparked lust in the great god. The arms of Hercules look no more muscular than those of many other men - but his father was the greatest god in the entire world. Hercules, the son of Zeus, has crushed monsters, giants and legendary warriors in combat.

Until one challenge remains: The harrowing underworld, the one place where strength does not matter. Pitted against the greatest monsters that classical literature and Saberhagen’s vivid imagination could create, Hercules’s struggle comes to life in his fight to the death, against Death itself.

Fred saberhage done a wonderful job

did a wonderful job writing the stories I was held captive from beginning to end found myself wishing there were more that it wouldn't end each store in the entire series had the same effect. my only regret is it I'm done with the book I have now read the entire Series 2 to 3 times using my audible books made it even better weather reading them or listening to them the outcome was the same loved listening to it was sorry they were over only wish I could find more book of the god type books Greek gods in themselves that's make me well I am a true Christian lover of God I do so like stories of the Greek gods and Fred saberhagen did a wonderful job

amazing

this is by far the best book out of the book of the gods. Hercules actually narrating it was a fantastic touch. I'll be reading this many more times!
