King of Ithaca
by Glyn Iliffe
Publication Date: 6 Feb 2017
The first in the epic and unputdownable series of war and legends
Greece is in turmoil, divided by feuding kingdoms desiring wealth, power… and revenge.
When Eperitus, a young exiled soldier, comes to the aid of a group of warriors in battle, little does he know what’s in store. He is about to join the charismatic Odysseus, Prince of Ithaca, on a vital quest to save his homeland.
Odysseus travels to Sparta to join the most famous heroes in paying suit to the sensuous Helen. Armed with nothing but his wits, he enters a treacherous world of warfare and politics to compete for the greatest prize in Greece.
But few care for the problems of an impoverished prince when war with Troy beckons…
An unmissable and ferociously exciting adventure for readers of David Gemmell, Christian Cameron and Simon Scarrow.
