Overview

To return to his hereditary throne on Ithaca, Telemachus, son of Odysseus and Penelope, musters the cleverness of his father and the wisdom of his mother as he navigates the treacherous waters of the War of the Families. More devastating than the Trojan War, this conflict pits the two greatest clans in ancient Greece: the Pelopides and Heraclides. It is the last gasp of a failing civilization. With remarkable parallels to today, Telemachus fights to maintain his beliefs and preserve his family. "This is a startlingly epic tale, ripe with originality and rendered with a highly adept ear for language. Beautifully written and exhaustively researched, the narrative builds on the history and age from which the material was born."
