From official release/information:
"O lord of the silver bow, if you would give like honour to Hector and to Achilles..." excerpt from the Illiad book 24.
Apollo is most famous for being the lord of the silver bow. But a different hero of ancient Greece is the focus of this opening chapter in the start of a new series by David Gemmell. In Lord of the Silver Bow, Aeneas (known here as Helikaon) is followed as he travels around the shores of the Aegean Sea. The bane of Agamemnon, we also learn of his troubled youth and the his father harshness. It's a new take on an old story, and it asks us to consider that there may be as many points of view as there are viewers.
