Age of Bronze Volume 2: Sacrifice
Continuing the epic saga of the Trojan War – all of the Trojan War, including back stories, side myths, and other matter usually cut out in the aim of turning one of the greatest tales of all time into a quick love-and-war story – that started in Age of Bronze, Sacrifice deals with the period when the Greek forces strove even to reach Troy, only to find that the cost was higher than they had dreamed. Beginning with the arrival of Paris and Helen at Troy, and ending with the sacrifice of Agamemnon’s daughter Iphigenia to gain a fair wind for the waiting fleet, Sacrifice is another work of art from author/artist Shanower. I can’t praise this series highly enough: fascinatingly told, exquisitely detailed, emotionally charged, the Age of Bronze series is a must for all fans of historical novels, history, or epic tales. Extremely highly recommended.
