    In the third book of The Troy Game, we once again see all the old players, plus a few new ones that got caught in the game during book two.  Cornelia and Genvissa make quite an astonishing discovery about themselves and their history, as do Brutus and Coel.  The Troy Game itself even plays a new bigger role in all that happens.  




    A great addition to the story, it propels the characters forward in a journey with an as yet unclear ending.

    Awesome Story worth the read

    Sara Douglass weaves a tale that will get a hold of you and not let go. I found her book on the discount counter and I will buy each forth coming book no matter the cost. Do yourself a favor and read this book. Be warned that you will not want to put it down.

    A complete WOW

    This book made my head spin! It was well-written and easy to get into, but the plot twists constantly had me saying 'WHAT?' Though that's not a bad thing. A superb addition to another wonderful series by Sara Douglass.

    Best science-fiction since Tolkien!!

    Anyone who has reads this book probably understands why I now love Asterion!!And Grace, poor Grace. I am on pins and needles for the next of Douglass' books, which no doubt will be better than the last!!! This book, and the two preceding are a terrific read if you like fantasy with a sweet betrayal-laced love story.

    exciting but complex fantasy

    The Troy Game continues with reincarnations in seventeenth century England. English King Charles II was once the Celtic Stagking of folklore. Former King of Troy Brutus has become the English monarch¿s companion and his Trojan spouse Cornelia is a young commoner Noah. The sorceress Genvissa is currently the sex slave Kate controlled by her master Asterion the first Minotaur while his sister Ariadne the Darkwitch seems unchanged. --- The Labyrinth exists in the Faerie universe while the Troy Game remains dangerous with its plans to win at all costs. Even deadlier is the aspirations of Asterion who schemes to win over the Game and to defeat her Ancient battle weary foes. His sibling abets his efforts to triumph over the regal band as well as The Game while Genvissa as Kate finds her master not as evil as she once thought. Soon plague devastates London forcing Charles to react with a fiery response to save the many at the cost of the lesser. --- The third Troy Game is exciting but complex as the players switch roles from the previous books (see GOD¿S CONCUBINE and HADES' DAUGHTER). The story line is loaded with twists that play out in a finely detailed seventeenth century English stage. The ensemble cast is put through the ringer by the Game with the two camps still far apart yet beginning to understand the ¿enemy¿. Fans of Sara Douglas will appreciate this complicated some what convoluted spin, but newcomers would be better suited starting with Game One as the reincarnations are clever but difficult to follow.--- Harriet Klausner
