The second installment of the Odysseus series that chronicles the epic journeys of the classic Greek hero, written by the bestselling author of the Alexander Trilogy
Odysseus returns in this second installment of the classic hero’s extraordinary story, masterfully brought to life by bestselling author Valerio Massimo Manfredi. After ten years of uninterrupted war, blood, and agony, the Trojans have finally been defeated, leaving Odysseus and his men to begin the long journey back to Ithaca. He’s determined to make it home, since it’s been years since he set out for Troy and his beloved family has been awaiting his return since the day he left. Little does he know, though, that he’ll encounter terrifying enemies along the way: creatures like the cyclops Polyphemus, or the lotus eaters who feast on narcotic flowers that provide only oblivion, the sorceress who turns men into swine, and the enthralling but deadly sirens all lie in wait. In this stunning new novel, Valerio Massimo Manfredi gives a new voice to one of the most adventurous and fascinating heroes of all time, showing readers in vivid detail the lengths to which Odysseus will go to return home.
