In this continuation from 'The King Must Die', Theseus returns home afther having freed the city of Athens to find his father dead and himself the new king. But his adventures have only just begun: he still must confront the Amazons, capture their queen, Hippolyta, and face the tragic results of Phaedra’s jealous rage.
Mary Renault (lesbian author of the beloved Alexander Trilogy) reimagines the Theseus myth, creating an original, exciting story richly imbued with the spirit of its time. This is a page-turner as well as a daring act of imagination, with Renault being one of the first authors to ever acknowledge the roles of male lovers in the warrior societies of ancient Greece. Please note that there is NO gay content in this novel.
