Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Helen is renowned as the most beautiful woman in the world. Her divine beauty will lead her to a lifetime of adventure — from her kidnapping at age 12, through an arranged marriage, to a passionate affair that will ultimately bring about the Trojan War.

Cassandra, the sister of Helen's true love, has the gift, or curse, to predict the future. When she foresees the ruin of her family and city, caused by Helen's arrival in Troy, she is outraged. Yet Cassandra cannot help being drawn to Helen, and as the war rages around them, the two young women develop a deep friendship.

Through their eyes, the classic tale of the Trojan War is retold in an immediate and fascinating way.

Review:

"Told in the first person, we first identify with Helen as she becomes the unwilling cause of the Trojan War." Children's Literature

Review:

"If this novel manages to introduce even a few more readers to the world of the ancient Greeks, it will be worth its shelf space." School Library Journal

Interesting take on the Trojan War, but I would strongly suggest Marion Zimmer Bradley's "The Firebrand" instead- it is far superior.
