Overview

Fall of Kings (Troy Series #3) by David Gemmell, Stella Gemmell

Outside the golden city of Troy, Prince Hektor leads the Trojan cavalry in daring raids against the forces led by his young rival, the peerless warrior Achilles. Meanwhile, burning for vengeance after the brutal murder of his wife, Helikaon commands the Trojan fleet, sowing misery and death among the Mykene navy and supply ships. But even these mighty efforts are of scant avail against the hordes of battle-hardened Mykene infantry, the Myrmidon soldiers of Achilles, and the cunning strategies of Odysseus, compelled against his heart’s urgings to aid the cause of Agamemnon.

Now, before the gates of Troy, Hektor and Achilles will find themselves inexorably drawn into a battle of champions that will decide the fate of the innocents trapped within the city walls. There, as King Priam slips into madness, Andromache–wife of Hektor, lover of Helikaon, mother, warrior, and priestess–must navigate a maze of treachery and danger to save her children and her city from the massacre about to unfold.

I am dying of heart failure.26 heart attacks, 22 angioplasties and 2 bypasses.... I am a vast history reader and Books like those of the Troy Series make what time I have enjoyable and are as historical as i can believe

It is sad to think that this is David Gemmell's last book and that he died before completing it. Fortunately Stella Gemmell did an outstanding job at finishing what her husband started.

As good a piece of epic historical fiction as you'll ever find.

This series is a clever , fast paced retelling of the Illiad.It is more complex and imaginative than the movie "Troy" although it focuses on the same historic event. Fascinating , yet logical explanations are offered on the "legends" of The Trojan Horse, Helen of Troy, and Circe, to name a few. The characters are compelling, flawed yet heroic and we come to relate to them, suffer with them and wish we knew them or were them. David Gemmel creates living breathing, complex characters better than any other author in the genre. I flew through the 3 books in the trilogy and was actually depressed when I finished because alas, there will be no more. He died prior to finishing the last book, which was completed by his wife Stella. If you liked this story, go back and read his first book" Legend" and his sagas of the Drenai. I doubt will be another author that moves me as much as this one. Xena
