Step into Stephen Fry's bewitching retelling of the legend of Troy in his most epic book yet
'Troy. The most marvellous kingdom in all the world . . .'
Paris the Trojan has kidnapped Helen, Greek queen and most beautiful woman of the ancient world.
A thousand ships give chase and lay siege to Troy. Yet the city stands resolutely against Greek might.
Only invulnerable Achilles and wily Odysseus may lead them to victory - but the passions of mortals merely amuse the Gods and blood is easily spilled on distant shores . . .

'Fluent, crisp, nuanced, begins with a bang' The Times Literary Supplement
