    This is astonishing and rich with an understanding of the canon that makes for a foundation the story builds on beautifully. The language is mythic, poetic, evocative but never overwrought. Epic and yet intimate, and very much what might have been.

    This is a delight. Achaeans and Troians In Space! Fun and unexpected and also sweet. Feels like what I wanted Dan Simmons' Illium to be that it wasn't quite. Odysseus is irrepressible and also exasperating, Hector is noble and exasperated, and Athena is perfect. Oh, and Achilles is copyrighted, right down to his heels.

    This reads like Tolkien wrote it, and I mean that in the very best way. The language, imagery, the spare, vivid description, the deep skein of grief and beauty, love and duty, and a numinous, luminous hope just sing.

    I am so happy to see this fandom get some love, and this is delightful, crisp and sweet and just a little tart, like the apples that are a theme throughout. And there is a moment of recursion/self-reference that made me laugh out loud.

    Follows book canon, but is not incompatible with the films, and is lovely and hopeful and just the right amount of sad/bittersweet.
