Labours of Hercules
Mr I.A. Watson
Greek myth's greatest hero faces his greatest tragedy.
Blessed and cursed by the gods, Hercules faces twelve impossible tasks that will take him past the ends of the world, pit him against monsters from beyond imagination, and force him to defy even the deities of Olympus to save those who loved.
Classical legend meets modern adventure from I.A. WATSON, the author of WOMEN OF MYTH and ST GEORGE AND THE DRAGON Books One and Two.
Award-winning writer I.A. WATSON has delved back into the original classical sources to weave this tale of legend's greatest hero. Hercules, the archetypal monster-fighting warrior, great is passion and in wrath, is portrayed in all his flawed glory in a world where legend is giving way to history and the gods are slowly giving way to the rise of humanity.
