The siege of Troy has lasted almost ten years. Inside the walled city, food is scarce and death is common. From the heights of Mount Olympus, the Gods keep watch. But Aphrodite, Goddess of Love, is bored with the endless, dreary war. Aided by Eros's bow, the goddess sends two sisters down a bloody path to an awful truth: In the fury of war, love strikes the deadliest blows. Heralded by fans and critics alike, Adele Geras breathes personality, heartbreak, and humor into this classic story.
Adele Geras is the celebrated author of many books for all ages, including Troy and Ithaka . She lives in Cambridge, England.
