The Burning Towers by Thomas Frances


The Burning Towers by Thomas Frances

Captured by pirates as a small girl, Eirene is now slave to the princess Cassandra of Troy. Troy was once a peaceful and beautiful city but ever since Queen Helen of Sparta abandoned her husband and daughter for the Trojan prince Paris, the Greek armies led by Agamemnon of Mycenae, have been waging war on Troy. Troy's champion is the dazzling Hector, eldest son of King Priam, but the Greeks have the great warrior Achilles. Who will be victorious? The gods have taken sides in this war, but they have their own plans too and when Cassandra offends the god Apollo, he takes a terrible revenge on her. Eirene's position becomes even more difficult. She has dreams of fire and destruction but can her devotion to the goddess Athene save her?
