Juvenile (late teen) romance set in the city of Troy during the last months of the Greek siege. Gods and heroes all make appearances, but not in any way that is particularly interesting. The relationships are all teen angsty, and again... not particularly interesting.

The historical context isn't butchered too much, but does suffer to make female protagonists reasonable.

Nothing really to recommend this book, and if I hadn't gotten it for .50 in a library sale, I wouldn't have bought it.
