Love or Nearest Offer - Adele Geras Books

Troy

May 16, 2022 by Adèle Geras

The classic struggle between Greece and Troy brought to life by a panoramic chorus of voices both humble and high, human and divine.

The siege of Troy has lasted almost ten years. Inside the walled city, food is scarce and death is common. From the heights of Mount Olympus, the Gods keep watch. But Aphrodite, Goddess of Love, is bored with the endless, dreary war. Aided by Eros's bow, the goddess sends two sisters down a bloody path to an awful truth: In the fury of war, love strikes the deadliest blows.

Heralded by fans and critics alike, Adèle Geras breathes personality, heartbreak, and humour into this classic story.
