Summary

Young Prince Odysseus is about to have his world torn apart. He has traveled to the oracle at Pytho to be anointed as heir to his island kingdom, but instead a terrible secret is revealed, one that tears down every pillar of his life and marks him out for death.

Young Prince Odysseus is about to have his world torn apart. He has travelled to the oracle at Pytho to be anointed as heir to his island kingdom, but instead a terrible secret is revealed, one that tears down every pillar of his life and marks him out for death.

Outcast by his family and on the run, Odysseus is offered sanctuary by Athena, goddess of wisdom, and thrust headfirst into the secret war between the gods. But can his wits, and his skill as a warrior, keep him ahead of their power games - and alive?

Gods and mortals collide in this spellbinding retelling of a legend from classic Greek mythology, the first in the epic "Olympus" Trilogy.

A grand fantasy, Greek mythology story of Odysseus just before the Trojan war.

I just loved David Hairs “mages blood” series and had to give this a go. This is another amazing story being told that won’t let you down. The story telling is masterful, each character nicely fleshed out and brought to life. I just loved the rational for the gods existence in the story and instantly loved the Narrators deep and resonant voice and reading. Ben Onwukwe is a top notch narrator and I look forward to hearing some of his other performances in the near future.
