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!

Listener Opinions

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Danielle | 1/10/2014

    " 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?? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David | 12/14/2013

    " This book is about the very famous Trojan war. If you like Greek mythology and war, then read away. but be warned- this book is VERY long and not as interesting as you think a war book will be. "

    " A wonderfully substantive telling of the story of Troy for younger readers. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters, and can't wait to read Geras' other work. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Glenda | 1/17/2012

    " I seem to speak in superlatives, but I'm just adding the books that I've really enjoyed in the past few months. The characterizations were crystal clear, and the story was brisk, tragic and human. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jilleen | 6/13/2011

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Edwin | 3/31/2011

    " The story of Troy, except the main characters are minor characters.
    Love this book. This book has romance, murder, suspense, and GODS!!! It's a good book except for one line of dialogue. Like serious it like dialogue that no one says. But i love the book and i gave it 2 thumbs up "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Edith | 3/23/2011

    " This is pretty good. But it includes several suggestive chapters that have to do with S-E-X. But includes a complicated plot to do with the Trojan War. If you like romance mixed with history then this is for you.



    Oh be prepared for, BLOOD and GUTS "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janesa | 3/19/2011

    " it alright, i would say that its better then the ones that i have read but its okay i guess.. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bernadette | 1/23/2011

    " I think it would have been better written for adults rather then young adults - it was cheesy and too dramatic at points, but anybody who has studied the Trojan War at some point would appreciate this book. It provided a worthy and alternate viewpoint to many of the characters in the Iliad. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sammy | 1/1/2011

    " Amazing war, romance, friendship story! I could read this over and over again! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kelli | 12/22/2010

    " A story line that could have been! It started out well, but I soon lost interest and got bored. The characters, you don't really care about. "
