The siege of Troy has lasted almost ten years. Inside the walled city, food is becoming scarce and the death toll is rising. From the heights of Mount Olympus, the gods keep watch.

But Aphrodite, goddess of love, is bored with the endless, dreary war, and so she turns her attention to two sisters: Marpessa, who is gifted with God-sight and serves as handmaiden to Helen, the most beautiful woman in the world; and Xanthe, who is kind and loving and tends the wounded soldiers in the Blood Room. When Eros fits an arrow to his silver-lit bow and lets it fly, neither sister will escape its power.

With vitality and grace, Adele Geras breathes personality, heartbreak and humor into this classic story. This is a truly inspired novel, told through the eyes of the women of Troy, in which Gods move among mortals and an ancient city is brought brilliantly to life. Download and start listening now!

    " This gives a different, yet interesting view of the events of the Trojan war. Instead of following the main players like Paris or Helen, it focuses on two sisters who are connected to the family. So while you are getting all the action from the war, and the inevitable result, you also have the story of the two girls dealing with their society. "

    " A decent portrayal of Troy right before it's fall, I really enjoyed the shifting points-of-view (which I usually don't). However, the novel was not as well-written as I had anticipated, and the end left me wondering WHAT HAPPENS TO THEM NOW?? "
