Princess of Troy, sister of Hector and Paris, Priestess of Apollo.
Blessed by the Sun God with the gift of prophecy, and then - for rejecting his advances - cursed by him never to be believed.
Diomenes, the enemy Achaean with the healing hands, and Cassandra become puppets of the gods. Their passions are thwarted, their gifts rendered useless for the sake of a wager between two immortals.
And now doomed, magnificent Troy is burning.
If Cassandra and Diomenes find each other can their love survive the games of malicious gods, victorious warriors and hated kings?
