The epic of Thesus, the boy king of Eleusis, ritually preordained to die after one year of marriage to the sacred queen but who defies God's decree and claims his inheritance - the throne of Athens. This re-creation of a Greek myth is written by the author of The Last of the Wine.
"One of the truly fine historical novels of modern times. Not since Robert Graves's I, Claudius has there been such an exciting living image of the Ancient World on this grand scale." (New York Times)
"Takes the raw material of myth and makes it credible - I am spellbound by Miss Renault's art." (Observer)
"Vivid and convincing...it brims with feeling." (Sunday Times)
