The Trojan Children • TYA

by Mahonri Stewart

(Under license from Prospero Arts and Media)

After the fall of Troy, a group of refugee children must rely on their wits, their hearts, and the aid of the Greek goddess Hestia, if they are going to survive monsters, magic, and the terrible god of war Ares. Will they be able to unite and overcome their differences to make it to safety?
