The magic of the Greek myths returns in the third volume of Fry's beloved retellings which take the reader into the heat of Trojan War - and Odysseus's treacherous journey back home to Ithaca. These are the epics, the Iliad and the Odyssey.
When Paris, the Prince of Troy steals away with Helen of Sparta, the most beautiful woman in the world he never imagines it will create a merciless war to last a decade, one that will change the path of history forever.
Odysseus, King of Ithaca, returning triumphant from war wants nothing more than to see his family, but on his way home he upsets a vengeful Poseidon, who curses him with years of shipwreck and wandering. He must battle storms and man-eating monsters, the seduction of sorceresses and sirens to reach Ithaca and take back his Kingdom from the many who scheme to take his queen and his throne.
