Praise
"It is Geras's focus on the domestic and personal aspects of this epic tale that sheds new light on a story that's survived the millennia. Her depictions of day-to-day life in a city exhausted by war are remarkable for their potent detail."
"Whatever foreknowledge Geras thus imparts steels even inexperienced readers to the certainty of tragedy. She delivers the sack of Troy as an ambitious, cinematic affair, viewed from many angels and narrated by many voices, and if she slips into melodrama once or twice, it's of little matter. She shows readers the uses of pity and terror."
"This novel is ambitious, but nonetheless predictable, and it lacks sufficient pace to support its length."
