About this item
1290 BCE- The height of the tumultuous Mycenaean Empire. A king dies, leaving a violent struggle for the kingdom of the Island of Siphnos-coveted for its riches and many resources. Warring nobles offer the resident princess a wager: if she goes to the Underworld and retrieves the coin placed in her father's mouth at the time of death, they will give her the kingdom. Princess Erigone gets the help of Karras, a daring adventurer, and sets off to face the insidious dangers of hell. In the meantime, her blind sister, Marina, defies Rhexenor, a ruthless mercenary holding onto the throne; and her brother's wife, Clymene, plots her own twisted revenge and schemes to eliminate all in her way. The characters in the Underworld are not the only ones who must escape hell. Those above must also deal with their own dangers and demons, and the hell they carry within themselves. Action, mythology, history, adventure, steamy romance, and suspense all blend together in this riveting novel. Who will live? Who will die? Who will escape hell, and what hell will they escape?
