Troy: Fall of a City

An epic tale of mortals and gods

David Farr’s psychologically rich and sweeping narrative goes back to the story’s origins: to the judgement of Paris, his scandalous love affair with Helen, and the ill-starred prophecy surrounding his birth.

Told from the perspective of the Trojan royal family at the heart of the siege, Troy: Fall of a City is a rich story of love, intrigue, betrayal and belonging. Combining thrilling adventure with heart-breaking intimacy, it conveys the big themes of human existence and identity; of people battling to retain their sense of humanity and compassion amid the devastation and destruction of war.

“Unhurried, understated and unpretentious… once you’re under its spell escape is not an option” — The Observer
