it was ok

I read this book because I loved Mists of Avalon and all of the other books in that series. Up until the end I would've said that this book was on par with those and given it a good review. But at the end,or nearly the end I guess I should say, we are treated to an act of such violence towards a child and it is described so vividly that I fear the image of it will never leave my mind. And it's such a shame because the book was wonderous in it's description of Cassandra of Troy fame. I loved the background and personality given to a person you never hear enough about with other stories about Troy. Skip this if you are a affected strongly by what you read or at least skip the pages where Troy gets pillaged, just my opinion.
