Summary

As a young boy in Ithaca, Odysseus listens in wonder to his grandfather Autolykos. He learns of his heritage and a lifelong passion is sparked: to become an adventurer and warrior. In Mycenae, he meets King Eurystheus and learns the terrible story of Hercules who slaughtered his family and whose punishment was to undertake impossible tasks to earn absolution. But is Eurystheus the man he says he is?

When a child comes to Odysseus in the middle of the night, with another, very disturbing, version of what happened that fateful night, Odysseus embarks on the first of his extraordinary quests ...

A great book by a talented author

Say no more! It is amazing the time that is spanned in the book, it covers a lifetime and incredible events and the story isn't even over yet! Highly recommended, can't wait for part two.
