about this item
Following the life and adventures of Odysseus, bestselling author Valerio Massimo Manfredi’s masterful novel breathes new life into another titanic figure of antiquity. In Ithaca, a young prince begins a journey that begins on the small, rocky and will soon lead him to the edges of the ancient world. So begins the epic story of Odysseus, a story of love, war, courage, violence, and heroism. In this thrilling novel, Manfredi reimagines the classic Greek stories, from the trials of Hercules to the fall of mighty Troy.
A first installment in a new epic by the best-selling author of the Alexander trilogy follows young Odysseus' discovery of his family's warrior heritage and pursuit of a life of exploration that is shaped by the labors of Hercules and the sinister machinations of King Eurystheus.
