Publisher's Summary

Beneath the gaze of the gods, the mighty armies of Greece and Troy met in fierce and glorious combat, scrupulously following the text set forth in Homer's timeless narrative. But that was before 21st-century scholar Thomas Hockenberry stirred the bloody brew, causing an enraged Achilles to join forces with his archenemy, Hector, and turn his murderous wrath on Zeus and the entire pantheon of divine manipulators; before the swift and terrible mechanical creatures that catered for centuries to the pitiful idle remnants of Earth's human race began massing in the millions, to exterminate rather than serve.
And now all bets are off.

Incredible story. So multifaceted.

Incredible story, how Simmons manages to weave sci fi and the classics together I will never know. This and the first book Ilium are modern classics. A must for any sci fi or indeed classics fans also.

Pretty close to great

Very clever and imaginative story, intelligently tying together old and new stories with a unique narrative. I definitely recommend this title. The slight disappointments are where it left me with regards to key characters, hopefully this is because other books will tell continue those stories. Another was the inclusion of the Anti Semitic inferences, not sure what this added other than to apportion blame within a fiction unnecessarily; this story line just seemed a bit ham-fisted in an otherwise delightfully entertaining book.
