A castaway tossed onto a deserted beach is the last survivor of a world that no longer exists. he has a terrible, fascinating story to tell - the true reason for which the Trojan War was fought....
At the heart of this story is Diomedes, the last of the great ancient Greek Homeric heroes and a man desperate to return to his beloved homeland after years of war against Troy. But destiny has decided otherwise.
Betrayed by his murderous wife and persecuted by hostile gods, he has no choice but to turn his sails west, towards Hesperia, the mysterious mist-shrouded land that will one day be called Italy. He carries with him the magic Talisman of Troy, a mystical, powerful idol that can make the nation that possesses it invincible.
There Diomedes learns that Aeneas - his lifelong Trojan enemy - has landed on the Latian coast. And thus we witness the last great duel, between the champion of a dying world and the founder of a new nation.
The Talisman of Troy re-creates the emotions of an epic age, at once grandiose and brutal. It breathes life into that tormented time when these ancient, mysterious peoples first settled the land of ice and fire which over the centuries would become their home and the centre of a world destined to last for millennia.
