Heavy on preachy feminism, but basically a decent story.

The Trojan War told from the perspective of a character whom was relatively unimportant in the myth. Kassandra is given a new lease on life by Marion Zimmer Bradley, for the book is the story of her life; this has a strong female point of view.

"Sing, Muse of the anger of Kassandra, Priam's daughter..." Huh? Yes, that's right,this is the Trojan War told from the women's viewpoint ,particularly that of Kassandra, the priestess whose curse was to always be right, but never believed. Marion Zimmer Bradley, who pulled off a similar gender theme switch with _The Mists of Avalon_, gives the familiar story a new depth and poignancy, as well as some grrrll power energy.
