The long siege is ended. Troy lies in ashes. The black ships of the Greek war-host set sail for home - but for King Odysseus of Ithaca, the return voyage holds hazards far greater than any he faced in the Trojan War.

A sequel to Black Ships Before Troy, Rosemary Sutcliff's retelling of The Odyssey transforms Homer's complex epic poem into a traveller's tale with a cast of men, magicians and monsters: the flesh-eating Cyclops, the deadly enchantment of Circe and Odysseus's battle to regain his wife and long-lost kingdom.

    " The sequel to Black Ships Before Troy: The Story Of The Iliad, this book will delight anyone who loves a good story accompanied by amazing art! Alan Lee's illustrations are (to me) the highlight, but Sutcliff's story will also hold you enthralled. "

    " This is a wonderfully illustrated and condensed version of Homer's classic. I loved the pictures that eerily depict Odysseus' travels after the Trojan War. I hope my kids find it as entertaining as I did. "

    " I just read this book for my children's lit class, and I did not like it at all. It was supposed to be a version of the Odyssey for kids, but it was so dumbed down that there was no story or description left. Sure kids would not understand Homer, but they are not stupid. The author could have added so much more, but instead she just gave an outline of the story. I would not recommend it to a child or anyone for that matter. "

    " This book did a great job of writing Odysseus's struggles in a way that captures the audiences attention and keeps them interested in the book. I really enjoyed reading it, but i wouldn't say that it was something I couldn't put down. It was a quick read and good for elementary age students. "
