I was transported to the time of the ancients, and I loved every moment of my journey!

From the very first page I was transported to a vivid, very real and believable time, and I couldn't stop reading. The writer clearly knows her classics, being a scholar and teacher of it. I loved this interpretation of the story of Achilles, told through the voice and eyes of his companion Patroclus. Written in clear, everyday language this story is highly readable, and tells of the ancient gods, giants and men, battles and mythical creatures like Chiron the centaur. Names are vaguely familiar but appear fresh and new, being brought to life again by a vivid, cleverly woven tale. I loved it.
