Achilles returned to his strings, and the music rose again. This time he sang also, weaving his own accompaniment with a clear, rich treble, His head fell back a little, exposing his throat, supple and faun-skin soft. A small smile lifted the left corner of bis mouth, Without meaning to l found myself leaning forward.

Greece in the age of Herves. Patroclus, an awkward young prince, has been exiled to Phrhia to live in the shadow of King Peleus and his strong, beautiful son, Achilles. By all rights their paths should never cross, but Achilles takes the shamed prince as his friend, and as they grow into young men skilled in the arts of war and medicine their bond blossoms into something far deeper — despite the displeasure of Achilles’s mother Thetis, a cruel sea goddess.

But then word comes that Helen of Sparta has been kidnapped. Torn between love and fear for his friend, Patroclus journeys with Achilles to Troy, little knowing that the years that follow will test everything they hold dear. Profoundly moving and breathtakingly original, this rendering of the epic Trojan War is a dazzling feat of the imagination, a devastating love story, and an almighty battle between gods and kings, peace and glory, immortal fame and the human heart.

Madeline Miller has a BA and MA from Brown University in Latin and Ancient Greek, and has been teaching both for the past nine years. She has also studied at the Yale School of Drama, specialising in adapting classical tales to a modern audience. The Song of Achilles is her first novel.
