Troy: Shield Of Thunder




The second novel in David Gemmell’s bestselling TROY trilogy. Interlacing myth and history, and high adventure, this is epic storytelling at its very best.

The war of Troy is looming, and all the kings of the Great Green are gathering, friends and enemies, each with their own dark plans of conquest and plunder.Into this maelstrom of treachery and deceit come three travellers; Piria, a runaway priestess nursing a terrible secret, Kalliades, a warrior with a legendary sword, and Banokles who will carve his own legend in the battles to come.SHIELD OF THUNDER takes the reader back into the glories and tragedies of Bronze Age Greece, reuniting the characters from LORD OF THE SILVER BOW; the dread Helikaon and his great love, the fiery Andromache, the mighty Hektor and the fabled storyteller, Odysseus.

Praise for Troy: Shield Of Thunder

Rave reviews for Troy: Lord of the Silver Bow: 'This is how the oldest tales should be read and known. Gemmell is a master of plot, but his triumph is creating men and women so real that their trials are agony and their triumph is glorious.

Conn Iggulden

David Gemmell carries us away to a four-cornered, wholly convincing cosmos, so masterfully done that the reader thinks "Ah, this is what it was really like."

Stephen Pressfield

Gripping and fast-paced, intelligent and intensely readable ... should appeal to anyone who enjoys an action-packed historical epic.

Joanne Harris

The loyalties and betrayals, the love and the hate, the endless, everlasting courage of the men - and the women - of both sides are brought to life in this vivid, inspirational recreation of the Troy myth.
