Summary
Odysseus, infamous trickster of Troy, vaunted hero of the Greeks, left behind a wake of chaos and despair during his decade long journey home to Ithaca. Lovers and enemies, witches and monsters--no one who tangled with Odysseus emerged unscathed. Some prayed for his return, others, for his destruction. These are their stories... A beleaguered queen's gambit for maintaining power unravels as a son plots vengeance. A tormented siren battles a goddess's curse and the forces of nature to survive. An exiled sorceress defies a lustful captain and his greedy crew. A blinded shepherd swears revenge on the pirate-king who mutilated him. A beautiful empress binds a shipwrecked sailor to servitude, only to wonder who is serving whom. A young suitor dreams of love while a returned king conceives a savage retribution. Six authors bring to life the epic tale of The Odyssey seen through the eyes of its shattered victims--the monsters, witches, lovers, and warriors whose lives were upended by the antics of the "man of many faces." You may never look upon this timeless epic--and its iconic ancient hero--in quite the same way again. In the tradition of Madeline Miller's Song of Achilles, and with the spirit of Lindsey Davis' The Third Nero and Kate Quinn's Mistress of Rome, A Sea of Sorrow transports you to the endlessly fascinating world of Homeric Greece
