If you're into Greek and Roman mythology, then you'll love Goddess of Yesterday. This book recounts the siege of Troy and the start of the Trojan war from the view point of the fictional character, Anaxander. In fact, it takes the entire story of the Iliad and brings a new dimension to this famous epic poem.
The book does start off a little slow, and takes a while to adjust to the characters and language. However, once you really get into it, you'll never want to put it down!
