Description


"The second in Greenwood's Delphic Women series offers a far different premise on a familiar story, crammed with well-researched detail, fascinating characters and erotic scenes." —Kirkus Reviews STARRED review

From Mount Olympus, Aphrodite, the goddess of love, yawned. Even perfection can be tedious.

"My Lord," she called to Apollo, "Sun God and brother. Let us play a game with mortals—my power against yours."

And so Cassandra, the golden-haired princess cursed with the gift of prophecy, and Diomenes, the Achaean with the healing hands, become the puppets of the gods. Their passions are thwarted, their loves betrayed, their gifts rendered useless for the sake of a wager between the immortals.

Doomed, magnificent Troy is the stage, and Cassandra and Diomenes the leading players in this compelling story of the city's fall. Both have found love before, and lost it.

Will they find each other in the light of the burning city? And, if they do, can their love survive the machinations of malicious gods and men?

About the Author


Kerry Greenwood was born in the Melbourne suburb of Footscray and after wandering far and wide, she returned to live there. She has degrees in English and Law from Melbourne University and was admitted to the legal profession on the 1st April 1982, a day which she finds both soothing and significant. Kerry has written three series, a number of plays, including The Troubadours with Stephen D’Arcy, is an award-winning children’s writer and has edited and contributed to several anthologies. The Phryne Fisher series (pronounced Fry-knee, to rhyme with briny) began in 1989 with Cocaine Blues which was a great success. Kerry has written twenty books in this series with no sign yet of Miss Fisher hanging up her pearl-handled pistol. Kerry says that as long as people want to read them, she can keep writing them. In 2003 Kerry won the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Australian Association.
