Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0615803407, Paperback)AND SO IT BEGINS…. Memnon, son of the mythological goddess of the Dawn, is allotted a choice by the Fates – an abundant life of lavishness, peace, adoration, and tranquility- accompanied by the ignominy of obscurity. Or alternatively, embark on an otherworldly voyage beset with strife, glory, forbidden liaisons, grief, and fatal sacrifice – along with eternal honor amongst the timeless heroes of the Trojan War. Such is the dilemma of the dutiful hero as he undoubtedly chooses the latter option, setting in motion a journey of epic proportions. THE MEMNID details the adventures of the famed Aethiopian king as he and his comrades traverse the perilous seas to assist the Trojans against fierce Achilles and the invading Grecian armies. During his voyage, Memnon encounters vengeful immortals, monstrous fiends, mischievous deities, and ravishing goddesses – all intent upon preventing his anticipated arrival to Troy. Memnon triumphs over the forces opposed to his endeavor, and ultimately reach his destination. However, his past and subsequent successes come at a steep price, as the lives of his loyal companions are lost one by one- including that of his beloved cousin Aithops. This tragic event is deeply impactful to Memnon, evoking rage, inconsolable sadness, guilt, and forgiveness– culminating in a fateful clash between the two greatest champions of the Trojan War.
