From the back cover: --"What begins with an apple must end with a horse." So said the oracle, but in between, a lot of things happen: Three godesses quarrel over a golden apple...the most beautiful woman in the world is stolen from her husband...and a war begins between the Greeks and the Trojans. It is a war that will last ten years, ending only when the final words of the prophecy are fulfilled. Many will die, a few will be heroes, but no one will be the same.--
