Overview

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

Darkness falls on the Great Green, and the Ancient World is fiercely divided.

On the killing fields outside the golden city of Troy, forces loyal to the Mykene King mass. Among them is Odysseus, fabled storyteller and reluctant ally to the Mykene, who knows that he must soon face his former friends in deadly combat.

Within the city, the Trojan king waits. Ailing and bitter, his hope is pinned on two heroes: his favourite son Hektor, and the dread Helikaon who will wreak terrible vengeance for the death of his wife at Mykene hands.

War has been declared — a war filled with bloodlust, and peopled by heroes who will live forever in a story that will echo down the centuries.

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
