In the Shadow of Troy


Book Two

At the roots of Western civilization lie the two great epics of Homer, the Iliad and the Odyssey. But now, an evil force known only as the Accuser threatens to alter the Trojan War and the return home of Odysseus. If he succeeds, anger, injustice, and despair will snuff out the lights of peace, mercy, and hope. Only two children from Texas, transported back to ancient Greece on a flying deck, can defeat the Accuser, bring history back on track, and ensure that freedom and justice will be born in the West.
