Summary

The war of Troy is looming, and all the kings of the Great Green are gathering, friends and enemies, each with their own dark plans of conquest and plunder.

Into this maelstrom of treachery and deceit come three travellers: Piria, a runaway priestess nursing a terrible secret; Kalliades, a warrior with a legendary sword; and Banokles, who will carve his own legend in the battles to come.

Shield of Thunder takes the listener back into the glories and tragedies of Bronze Age Greece, reuniting the characters from Lord of the Silver Bow: the dread Helikaon and his great love, the fiery Andromache, as well as the mighty Hektor and the fabled storyteller, Odysseus.

Discouraging, but necessarily and beautifully so

Lord of the Silver Bow is a tale so full of Hope and optimism, but we all know how the Trojan War ends. This book, though still thrilling and beautifully written, marks the turn that leads us back to where we know things must go. It's more than a little heartbreakingly, and as badly as I want to continue down this path (and I certainly will, as The Fall of Kings is now downloading) I wish we could go back before everything became so.. broken.

Thomas Judd, as before, is a fantastic narrator.
