Historical fantasy full of "suspense, treachery, and bone-crunching action . . . will leave fans of the genre eagerly awaiting the rest of the series" (The Times Literary Supplement).
It was a time of myth and mystery. A time when Gods walked among men. It was a time of heroes. Greece is a country in turmoil, divided by feuding kingdoms desiring wealth, power and revenge.

When Eperitus, a young exiled soldier, comes to the aid of a group of warriors in battle, little does he know that it will be the start of an incredible adventure. For he is about to join the charismatic Odysseus, Prince of Ithaca, on a vital quest to save his homeland.

Odysseus travels to Sparta to join the most famous heroes of the time in paying suit to the sensuous Helen. Armed with nothing but his wits and intelligence, he must enter a treacherous world of warfare and politics to compete for the greatest prize in Greece. But few care for the problems of an impoverished prince when war with Troy is beckoning.

An epic saga set in one of the most dramatic periods of history, King of Ithaca is a voyage of discovery of one man's journey to become a King—and a legend.

"A must read for those who enjoy good old epic battles, chilling death scenes and the extravagance of ancient Greece." —Lifestyle Magazine
"The reader does not need to be classicist to enjoy this epic and stirring tale. It makes a great novel." —Historical Novels Review
