Wrath of Achilles

Follow Your Fates presents:
The Wrath of Achilles

by Ed DeHoratius
illustrated by Drian Delandro Hardison

You are Achilles, the greatest hero of ancient Greece. You fight with honor and pride. But on the battlefields of Troy you have a decision to make: stay true to your honor code and not fight, or stand beside your countrymen and win even more fame and glory.

In The Wrath of Achilles, you face the same choices as Achilles in Homer’s Iliad, but you are in control of your destiny. Only one path leads to glory. Twelve others lead to death, defeat, or shame.

Readers ages eight and up will experience Achilles’ choices firsthand in Ed DeHoratius’ dramatic text, dynamically illustrated by award-winning comic book artist Brian Delandro Hardison.

Special Features:
  • Prose story of the Iliad that lets you control the action
  • 13 different endings—depending on your choices
  • 5 illustrations by award-winning comic book artist Brian Delandro Hardison
  • Visit the book's website for author podcasts and more
