Summary

The epic story, the greatest hero of them all.

Heracles, renowned for his strength and spirit, has done something terrible. His gilded life lies in ruins. Seeking the Oracle, he is given a new mission: pay penance by becoming the slave of his sworn enemy.

Twelve impossible labours await him. To restore his reputation, he must face monsters and mythical beasts that will test him to his limits and beyond. For he has become a pawn of Gods: of Zeus's pride and, above all, Hera's jealousy...

Can he fight back? Or even survive?

The astonishing new series from bestseller Glyn Iliffe takes us on an unforgettable journey of monsters, myth and man.

Glyn Iliffe studied English and Classics at Reading University, where he developed a passion for the stories of ancient Greek mythology. Well travelled, Glyn has visited nearly forty countries, trekked in the Himalayas, spent six weeks hitchhiking across North America and had his collarbone broken by a bull in Pamplona. He is married with two daughters and lives in Leicestershire.
