The promotional material for this book states that it does for the Aeneid what The Mists of Avalon did for the story of King Arthur. For once, the press release is not exaggerating. Graham's thorough, detailed tale of ancient Greece is one that fans of that period are bound to love.

Gull, the daughter of a slave woman, is given to the Pythia for training when she's just a child. Schooled in the ways of the Goddess, she soon finds
herself in the middle of sea battles, an Egyptian temple and the deserted island of Death as she helps care for her exiled people, led by Prince Aeneas, while they search the Mediterranean for their new home. (Orbit, Mar., 448 pp., $14.99)
