Trying War

Trying War

Like it’s prequel, Trying War pulls together tales from Greek mythology. These stories do not contradict legend but provide another story/alternate explanation within ancient Greek history.

Most importantly, this is a great adventure story. It continues to follow the journeys of the four young protagonists, Hero and her three brothers (Mac, Cad, and Lycon). Trying War is darker than Chasing Odysseus.

In writing a series for young adults (as well as adult fiction), S. D Gentill follows in the footsteps of other acclaimed writers, such as Emily Rodda/Jennifer Rowe and Kate Forsyth.

While her fast-moving quest is loosely based on Homer’s mythical The Odyssey and the infamous fall of the ancient city of Troy, S. D Gentill creates twist after extraordinary twist for her four heroes that will keep today’s young readers gripped and enthralled from start to finish.
