A Prince of Troy (the Troy Quartet, Book 1) (Paperback)
PART ONE OF THE TROY QUARTET
Bringing ancient myth to life with passion, humour, and humanity, Lindsay Clarke vividly retells the story of Troy and of the heroes who fought there.
When the mortal Paris settles a contest between the gods, he is promised the love of Helen, the most beautiful woman in the world.
But Helen is already married, to the powerful Menelaus of Sparta, and the kings of many cities have sworn to defend their union. Paris's divine gift threatens to set his world aflame.
'An engaging retelling of the whole story, neatly blending mythic archaism with modern psychodrama and satire'
