This is the tale of Lukka, the Hittite soldier who traveled across Greece in search of the vicious slave traders who kidnapped his wife and sons. He tracks them all the way to war-torn Troy. There he proves himself a warrior to rank with noble Hector and swift Achilles. Lukka is the man who built the Trojan horse for crafty Odysseus, who toppled the walls of Jericho for the Isrealites, who stole beautiful Helen--the legendary face that launched a thousand ships--from her husband Menaleus after the fall of Troy and fought his way across half the known world to bring her safely to Egypt.

A lively little number. Bova sets a torrid pace early.

Good read. Pure fiction set in the historical background of the Trojan War.

An interesting look at the Trojan War and fall of Troy. Slightly predictable, but also containing some interesting interpretations of the origins of the legends surrounding Troy and the battle over Helen.
