Kort om boken
Eros, son of Aphrodite and King Arin, ruler of Sparta, has raced ahead of the rest of his soldiers. Eros is faster than any animal or human. He waited at the edge of the cliff, and he sees the battle ships coming into the harbor. They are still a ways off, and Eros thinks his men should arrive in time to defend this city. He is a tall, lean man, with sharp features. He has green eyes and blond hair. He is incredibly handsome, and he wears bronze armor forged by Hephaestus himself. On his chest plate is a two-headed phoenix. He has his bow slung over his shoulder, and on his shield is a painting of all twelve Olympians. He carried a black spear with a steel head. His sword is bronze, with a lightning bolt on the hilt. All these were gifts from Aphrodite for his eighteenth birthday. She enchanted his bow to make anyone fall madly in love with the first person you see after youre struck. Also she gave him a magical harp that can lull anyone to sleep, except the one playing it.
