Overview

Blending archaeological fact and legend, the myths of the gods and the feats of heroes, Marion Zimmer Bradley breathes new life into the classic tale of the Trojan War-reinventing larger-than-life figures as living people engaged in a desperate struggle that dooms both the victors and the vanquished, their fate seen through the eyes of Kassandra-priestess, princess, and passionate woman with the spirit of a warrior.

Praise

“Bradley animates…the conflicts between a culture that reveres the strength of women and one that makes them mere consorts of powerful men.” -Publishers Weekly

“[Bradley] makes a strong statement about the desirability of women having control of their destinies and about the cruelties men inflict upon them.” -Library Journal
