A year after Daphne saved the powers of Olympus by defeating Nyx, the Goddess of Darkness, she’s haunted by still-looming threats, her complicated feelings for the god Apollo, and the promise she made to the Olympian gods that she would help them again when they called upon her. When their command comes, it is deceptively simple: secure herself a spot as one of Queen Helen’s guards. A war is coming, and all of Sparta must be prepared. In the midst of a treaty summit among the monarchs of Greece, Daphne and Helen uncover a plot of betrayal—and soon, a battle begins. As the kingdoms of Greece clash on the shores of Troy and the gods choose sides, Daphne must use her wits, her training, and her precarious relationship with Apollo to find a way to keep her queen safe, stop the war, and uncover the true reason the gods led her to Troy in this thrilling sequel to DAUGHTER OF SPARTA.

Daphne is an awesome protagonist: fearless, tough, and unforgiving in battle . . . Readers will thrill at appearances from the well-known denizens of Greek mythology, including gods and goddesses, centaurs, the Minotaur, gryphons, and the Sphinx of Thebes, as well as awe-inspiring landscapes like the underworld and Mount Olympus.” –School Library Journal
