About This Book


Meet Odysseus, the most admired man in his world. 

He’s a crafty survivor, always plotting his next move. A fearsome opponent, deadly with bow, spear, and sword. A skilled liar who deceives friends, foes, and family. A cruel avenger who beheads a harmless priest as he begs for mercy. 

In twenty years of hardship and adventure, he has defeated men, monsters, and gods. Now Odysseus must face one last challenge…a hundred skilled warriors determined to possess his wealth, his palace, and his wife.
