really liked it
bookshelves: historical-fiction

I read so many glowing reviews here on Goodreads, I had to pick up this book. It should be right up my (historical fiction) alley.

And it is.

This is the story of the Trojan War. As a child, I read a lot of the Trojan War cheering on the valiant Greeks. This story has none of the gods and goddesses intervening. However, it does have some amazing characters.

There were parts of the book that made me go WOW. Particularly, I loved how Odysseus befriended Helikaon and admired how the author didn't particularly draw the heroines possessing epic beauty. They're all beautiful in their own way but often described as plain.

Well-crafted story. I'm looking forward to picking up the sequel.
