The most ancient of stories, Homer's Iliad, is resuscitated by the fertile imagination of Nick Berry, woven in with his exciting swords-and-sorcery character Zona, whose name means life-a princess of the most extraordinary vitality and youthful energy who brings justice and succour to the trapped Helen of Troy. She may or may not have been at Troy, but could history and legend have unfolded as this gifted author conceives it, had she been there? Helped by her sprightly sidekick Xanthia (whose Greek name means 'yellow' in keeping with her blonde hair) and an old flame, her reason for being there is to fashion a new start for princess Helen. In doing so, might she change history and myth? Forget X-Boxes, other computer games. If it's action, non-stop excitement and fantasy you're after, pick up this book!

Nick Berry’s tongue-in-cheek divine comedy is certainly more readable and enjoyable than The Satanic Verses! The ancient Greeks would have approved the apocalyptical themes and theatrical settings. The novel is a roller-coaster ride through heaven and hell—a refreshing change from the Dawkins Delusion, and provokes some interesting questions into the reality of divine existence. Some might even conclude that we are not just waiting in vain for Godot as we gallop through our world’s catastrophic financial crisis in the twenty-first century.

This new book in the now well-established saga of Zona's adventure is as exciting and nail-biting as ever, crammed with dramatic events, chapters often ending on cliff-hangers, and scenes of rapid, sudden action, with startling realism of gore and guts as our heroine decapitates and disembowels her enemies! What a superb film this novel would make, with its vivid scenarios of action and flying creatures! Here also is a sense of camaraderie, of empathy between humans and horses - and between a mythical cyclops and a fearsome dragon the size of a Boeing 747-8 to boot! Avid readers of phantasmagorical adventures who grew up with Harry Potter but have outgrown him might well welcome these intriguing Zona books which are in the same broad genre. - Charles Muller, Diadem Books

About the book: Nick Berry has again proved to be a master at story-telling. Once again he has created a larger-than-life heroine, a warrior woman par excellence, that is both believable and mythical. Strapping and formidable, she embodies the Greek or Platonic concept of the 'ideal', the perfect woman, and yet displays all the natural charm and sparkling sense of humour of the girl next door - a brunette of stunning beauty that one gets to know very quickly and irresistibly. This is the girl-woman that, undaunted, fights the good fight against evil-this time culminating in the City of Babylon. Full marks to the author's meticulous research, for the evocation of this once impressive metropolis is stunning and believable. Zona's encounter with Nebuchadnezzar is spectacular and farcical at the same time, and one reads with bated breath to see how our heroine will extricate herself this time from a dictator's claws! - Charles Muller, Diadem Books

This new novel about Zona, the indefatigable and charming, robust Princess of Martial Arts, with her strapless breast band, adds to the glowing reputation of this series of books. I opened the pages eagerly to read of her new adventure as Princess of Medea, and was not disappointed! This story adds a whole new dimension to this fascinating heroine - a metaphysical dimension, for she is not just brawn and witty rejoinders, and there is a fascinating revelation of her character. Read the book for sheer enjoyment and once again you will be fascinated by the irresistible charm and impetuous energy of Zona who, refusing to comply with protocol and abjectly bow and prostrate herself before the gasbag King of Medea, is true to her independent and wayward nature. She is real and believable and behaves consistently with her stubborn and wilful, but endearing character! - Charles Muller, Diadem Books.
