She finds strength in visions of a handsome warrior god until he appears before her in flesh and blood. When Briseis raises a sword against the mighty Achilles, she ignites a passion that threatens to betray everyone she holds dear.

Immerse yourself in this richly depicted Bronze Age world where Greek gods walk the earth, epic heroes fight with sword and heart, and a woman dares to determine her own destiny.
“The difference between a good historical novel & a brilliant one? Read Hand of Fire & discover the answer.” —Helen Hollick, Ed. Historical Novels Review
