Hades Daughter is the first book in a new series entitled The Troy Game from internationally bestselling author Sara Douglass (The Wayfarer Redemption, Enchanter & Starman). Epic in scope, this is material that simply could not be tackled with any success by a lesser author.
A professor of medieval history by training, Douglass skillfully weaves fact with fiction to create a story that is breathtaking in scope: filled with magic, passion, love, betrayal, ambition and revenge. Her characters are complex people, who behave both honorably and despicably. Douglass’ powerful and evocative prose, coupled with a rich historical background and a provocative storyline make for fascinating reading.
