Synopsis for Original Title

The conquerers were gone, the wooden horse lay rotting; and the son of Hector came down from the mountains to reclaim the throne of ravaged Troy. But there was no way for young Astyanax to rebuild his country or wreak vengeance--until the gods gave him a destiny: kidnapping the demi-goddess Helen . . . again.
