A SONG OF WAR Troy: city of gold, gatekeeper of the east, haven of the god-born and the lucky, a city destined to last a thousand years. But the Fates have other plans—the Fates, and a woman named Helen. In the shadow of Troy's gates, all must be reborn in the greatest war of the ancient world: slaves and queens, heroes and cowards, seers and kings . . . and these are their stories.A young princess and an embittered prince join forces to prevent a fatal elopement.A tormented seeress challenges the gods themselves to save her city from the impending disaster.A tragedy-haunted king battles private demons and envious rivals as the siege grinds on.A grizzled archer and a desperate Amazon risk their lives to avenge their dead.A trickster conceives the greatest trick of all.A goddess' son battles to save the spirit of Troy even as the walls are breached in fire and blood.Seven authors bring to life the epic tale of the Trojan War: its heroes, its villains, its survivors, its dead. Who will lie forgotten in the embers, and who will rise to shape the bloody dawn of a new age?Supplemental enhancement PDF accompanies the audiobook.

Author Bio

The native southern Californian, Kate Quinn is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of historical fiction. After earning Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Classical Voice, she wrote four novels in the Empress of Rome Saga, and two other books staged in the Italian Renaissance. After her success with those first six books, she began writing in the 20th century with "The Alice Network" and "The Huntress".

Quinn claims to have always loved history and has said this about why........Too often we grow up thinking history is boring, dull, nothing but flat lists of dates and places. In my books I hope to show the life, the laughter, and the humanity that runs through our common past.

She lives in Maryland with her husband and two dogs.......and has never lost her love of opera, but has added action movies, cooking and the Boston Red Sox.
