The Talisman of TroyBook - 2004
Another grandiose and brutal epic of the ancient world from the bestselling author of the Alexander trilogy, Spartan and The Last Legion no longer exists. He has a terrible, fascinating story to tell - the true reason for which the Trojan War was fought... Homeric heroes, who seeks to return to his beloved homeland after years of war against Troy. But destiny has other plans for him. Betrayed by his wife, who plots to murder him and persecuted by hostile gods, he has no choice but to turn his sails west, towards Hesperia, the mysterious mist-shrouded land that will one day be called Italy. He ventures boldly into this new world, for he carries with him the magic Talisman of Troy, a mysterious, powerful idol that can make the nation that possesses it invincible... and brutal. It breathes life into that tormented time when these ancient, mysterious peoples were first settling the land of ice and fire which over the centuries would become their home and the centre of a world destined to last for millennia.
