Not fairy tales, I know, but has anyone read Geras'
"Troy"? I'm curious what you thought, esp. in comparison to McLaren's books (Inside the Walls of Troy and Waiting for Odysseus).
Anyone read it?

It's on my stack and I hope to get to it in the next week or so. I'll have to fess up and admit to never reading McLaren's books. I think the last Troy related book I read was Bradley's "Firebrand" when I was studying the classics as an undergrad.

I haven't read Troy yet, but I recommend her Egerton Hall series--_The
Tower Room_, _Watching the Roses_, and _Pictures of the Night_,
which are teen novels based on Rapunzel, Sleeping Beauty, and Snow
White. No "fantasy" elements, just coming-of-age-stories
I wish I had read at fourteen or so.
