The first book in Dan Simmons Mars series. Every speculative fiction writer should have one (a Mars series)and there are few who do it better than Simmons.

If you like Scifi, Homer, gods and mortals, this will satisfy you.

This story will twist your brain in knots, blending ancient Earth history with futuristic interplanetary drama.

quite a thick book, enjoyable
I really didn't like this book. I had a very hard time with the willing suspension of disbelief, and the characters were mostly so arbitrary they made no sense at all. Full review available here if desired: http://jrpbookreviews.blogspot.com/2011/09/title-illium-and-olympos-author-dan.html
Absolutely excellent. Any Sci-Fi fan with a decent knowledge of the Iliad will LOVE this book!!!!!!
