From the Publisher: Meet Odysseus, the most admired man in his world. He's a crafty survivor, always plotting his next move. A fearsome opponent, deadly with bow, spear, and sword. A skilled liar who deceives friends, foes, and family. A cruel avenger who beheads a harmless priest as he begs for mercy. In twenty years of hardship and adventure, he has defeated men, monsters, and gods. Now Odysseus must face one last challenge-a hundred skilled warriors determined to possess his wealth, his palace, and his wife.
