Marion Zimmer Bradley, the New York Times bestselling author who reimagined the legend of King Arthur and Camelot in The Mists of Avalon, delivers another alternate vision of classical myth with The Firebrand -- a tale of the Trojan War.--This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.
Born of noble blood, Kassandra is destined for a greater life than that of a Trojan princess. Even before her mother sends her to live among the Amazons, Kassandra is chosen by the Sun God, Apollo, as his priestess-and has the gift of foresight bestowed upon her.
She has foreseen the destruction of Troy-a great war between Akhaians and Trojans and the wrath of the gods upon them all. But on one believes Kassandra's prophecies ... or heeds her warnings about the woman known as Helen of Troy.
