Well done to the Author -a very enjoyable read and a great twist on the legend ( no spoilers) with a nice dollop of the Aeneid thrown in. If you fancy a great story about a legendary time with legendary characters but with a nice twist-and who knows it might even have been true -buy both books-really looking forward to the next one-Nice on! -Amazon Review
TROY HAS FALLEN
The greatest city on earth has been reduced to a pile of smoldering ash, but the cost has been high. The fabled king Priam with the last remnant of the city, knowing all hope of survival is gone, sacrifices themselves in a last act of defiance to destroy the Greek army.
His once mighty army destroyed, his alliances in ruins. Agamemnon crawls for the safety of his fortress walls of Mycaenea well aware that enemies will smell blood in the water. But after ten years at war, who could you trust to keep your throne safe?
Running for their very lives, the refugees of Troy search the seas of the Mediterranean for refugee led by Aeneas. Somewhere they can survive, in the hope of one day bringing vengence to their home.
Achilles had a son, whom some call Pyrrhus. Having missed the great war, he is determined to prove himself by hunting down the refugees.
Odysseus, having helped them escape feels duty bound to find the refugees and warn them of their peril.
What People are saying:
Angus Watson, (Author of Age of Iron Trilogy & West of West Trilogy):
“Kelly’s prose whisk you back three thousand years so you’re shoulder with bronze armoured shoulder with Achilles, Agamemnon and the rest of the gang. He’s taken the Iliad and the Odyssey, shaken them up, swung them around and delivered them back, fizzing with adventure. How about the bible next Mr Kelly?
Kelly’s remixed Ancient World is a thrilling, page turning joy.
