The Trojan War rages at the foot of Olympos Mons on Mars -- observed and influenced from on high by Zeus and his immortal family -- and twenty-first-century professor Thomas Hockenberry is there to play a role in the insidious private wars of vengeful gods and goddesses. On Earth, a small band of the few remaining humans pursues a lost past and devastating truth -- as four sentient machines depart from Jovian space to investigate, perhaps terminate, the potentially catastrophic emissions emanating from a mountaintop miles above the terraformed surface of the Red Planet.

Beneath the gaze of the gods, the mighty armies of Greece and Troy met in fierce and glorious combat, scrupulously following the text set forth in Homer's timeless narrative. But that was before twenty-first-century scholar Thomas Hockenberry stirred the bloody brew, causing an enraged Achilles to join forces with his archenemy Hector and turn his murderous wrath on Zeus and the entire pantheon of divine manipulators; before the swift and terrible mechanical creatures that catered for centuries to the pitiful idle remnants of Earth's human race began massing in the millions, to exterminate rather than serve. And now all bets are off.

Instead he witnesses an act of brutality that propels him on a treacherous trek across a dark and dangerous America.

Twelve-year-old Magnolia Bannister lives a carefree life aboard her parent's magical steamboat, a vessel that travels half-in, and half-out of, the domain of men and women. She is an only child who has never been to school, she hasn't friends her own age to play with, and she wouldn't have it any other way. But all that is about to change when her parents hand her an emerald-green envelope with spidery golden writing on it. It's an announcement from Gryndells, a prestigious school for magician children in Ilium, telling her that she has been enrolled in school there. Magnolia sends sparks flying, but when she meets a three-hundred-year old magician who gives her a special ring and tells her ""things won't go so well"" in Ilium if she doesn't accept it, Magnolia's curiosity causes her to have a change of heart. And soon, Magnolia and her parrot, and three classmates, are caught up in the adventure of their life when they defy the headmaster and strike out on their own to find five missing students.
