Publisher's Summary

Patroclus, an awkward young prince, has been exiled to the kingdom of Phthia. Here he is just another unwanted boy living in the shadow of King Peleus and his golden son, Achilles. Yet one day, Achilles takes the shamed prince under his wing. As they grow into young men, their bond blossoms into something far deeper – despite the displeasure of Achilles's mother. When word comes that Helen of Sparta has been kidnapped, the men of Greece are called upon to lay siege to Troy in her name. Seduced by the promise of a glorious destiny, Achilles joins their cause. Torn between love and fear for his friend, Patroclus follows Achilles into war, little knowing that the years that follow will test everything they have learned.

gripping and beautiful

This is so well written and such a gripping story it is worth getting. Has made me laugh and cry! The narration is clear and easy to get into. Though I am not sure the plot is everyone's cup of tea if you are even vaguely interested give it a go

excellent

Despite this book centering around male characters, as a woman I was able to relate to them and the main themes in the book. The story was thrilling and enjoyable, and the language well chosen in conveying the emotional content. I would highly recommend this read, and the narration was excellent.
