Surprisingly entertaining yarn about the old Greeks and such. Aeneas is the hero here, and he goes back and forth to Troy, where his buddy Hector is presumed dead in battle and Andromache is Hector’s betrothed. She was in a temple originally, had a lesbian love affair with another priestess there, but her dad is making her marry Hector. Agamemnon shows up, he’s quite the jerk, and Odysseus is a great story teller who gets an idea for a story when he draws his wife’s face in the sand at the beach and a little worm crawls out of the sand. Hence the Medusa story is born. This is the first in a series and takes place before the whole Paris, Odysseus and Trojan Horse thingy. Time permitting, I might just read another one in the series.
