Troy: Lord Of The Silver Bow

by David Gemmell

Part of the Troy Series

Historical Fiction

LoveReading View on Troy: Lord Of The Silver Bow

This is the start to one of my all time favourite trilogies which is quite simply glorious. David Gemmell takes the epic tale based around Troy and brings it to vivid passionate life. Adventure, action, love, heartache, courage, betrayal, all fought out on the battlefield or whispered conversations in the rooms of power. I adored his previous books (I’ve read all of them) which were firmly heroic fantasy. The first book in the trilogy Troy: Lord of the Silver Bow was published in 2005, and I felt that his writing soared to new heights. I fell deeply in love and this is a trilogy that I regularly reread. After the author’s death in 2006, his wife Stella Gemmell wrote the second part of the third book from his notes. In 2007 Troy: Fall of Kings was published under both David and Stella Gemmell. In 2008 the David Gemmell Awards for Fantasy began.

Books in The Troy Series:

Troy: Lord Of The Silver Bow Synopsis

Three lives will change the destiny of nations.

Helikaon, the young prince of Dardania, haunted by a scarred and traumatic childhood. The priestess Andromache, whose fiery spirit and fierce independence threatens the might of kings. And the legendary warrior Argurios, cloaked in loneliness and driven only by thoughts of revenge.

In Troy they find a city torn apart by destructive rivalries - a maelstrom of jealousy, deceit and murderous treachery. And beyond its fabled walls blood-hungry enemies eye its riches and plot its downfall.

It is a time of bravery and betrayal; a time of bloodshed and fear. A time for heroes.
