David Gemmell sadly passed away before he completed this final book in his Troy trilogy. His wife, Stella, took what David had written to date, plus his notes and finished the book. Some people may have been apprehensive about what this would mean for the story but I think it’s fair to say that such fears can be put to rest, it’s a great book and a fitting finale to the series.
Taking interesting twists on some of the Troy myths (the Trojan Horse is a cavalry unit, not a statue) and using the already well-developed, flawed and rounded characters as well as a few new ones. The story is epic and inspiring and comes to a nice conclusion.
Well worth it for anyone who enjoys heroic fantasy.
