Author(s): David Gemmell
Three lives will change the destiny of nations. Helikaon, the young prince of Dardania, haunted by a scarred and traumatic childhood. The priestess Andromache, whose fiery spirit and fierce independence threatens the might of kings. And the legendary warrior Argurios, cloaked in loneliness and driven only by thoughts of revenge. In Troy they find a city torn apart by destructive rivalries - a maelstrom of jealousy, deceit and murderous treachery. And beyond its fabled walls blood-hungry enemies eye its riches and plot its downfall. It is a time of bravery and betrayal; a time of bloodshed and fear. A time for heroes.
Compelling, unputdownable novel of love and hatred, ambition and rivalry, peace and war by Sunday Times bestselling David Gemmell.
Advance praise for Troy: Lord of the Silver Bow
"This is how the oldest tales should be read and known. This is the grand style of storytelling. Gemmell is a master of plot, but his triumph is creating men and women so real that their trials are agony and their triumph is glorious."
-Conn Iggulden, author of the Emperor series
"I can say of David Gemmell, that he's the only writer of historical fiction or heroic fantasy whose prose I actually study, line by line, trying to decode how he produces the effects that he does. Hail to Lord of the Silver Bow! Bravo, Mr. Gemmell!"
-Steven Pressfield, author of Gates of Fire and The Virtues of War
