(From the publisher):
Skillfully weaving myth and history, Georgia Sallaska presents a new and unforgettable account of the mighty Heracles and the legendary labors which led him to many strange and distant realms performing incredible feats of endurance, strength and courage to unite and lead his people.
The Last Heracles is a story of classic wonder and adventure, a saga of prophecies and quests, of blind devotion and loyalty, of treachery and doom, of kingdoms overthrown by war. It is a story told by Iphicles, the brother of Heracles, who loved and followed him until the end.And to a scarcely lesser extent it is Iphicles' story too, for his devotion adds a new dimension of tenderness to this record of heroism. Heracles' Greece is the Greece where gods walked and heroes sang.
