You are Achilles, the greatest hero Greece has ever known. You fight with honor and pride. Your skills at arms are unmatched. You have never experienced defeat. But on the battlefields of Troy you have a decision to make: stay true to your code of honor and not fight, or come to the aid of your countrymen and win fame and glory, becoming an even greater legend.
In The Wrath of Achilles, you become Achilles, hero of all of Greece. You confront the same choices he faced in the pages of Homer's Iliad, but with a twist: you are in control of your destiny. You can choose a different path as you follow you fate. Thirteen different endings await you. Only one path leads to glory. Twelve lead do death, defeat, and shame.
Young people ages 8 and up will learn the Iliad from the inside out with dramatic text by Ed DeHoratius, dynamically illustrated by award-winning comic book artist Brian Delandro Hardison.
* Thirteen different endings to choose from
* Five black-and-white illustrations
* Learn Homer's classic story, the Iliad, in prose that reads like a script to an action movie

The Follow Your Fates series is written in accessible English prose, suitable for children from ages eight on up. The series currently includes three titles, The Wrath of Achilles (ISBN 978-0865167087), The Journey of Odysseus (ISBN 978-0865167100), and The Exile of Aeneas (ISBN 978-0865167094). In each book, there are multiple choices leading to multiple endings, depending on the choices made by the reader. Each volume faithfully maintains the plot of the original for the 'winning' ending, while the 'less successful' and even 'disastrous' endings will help students come to a better understanding of the values of the ancient world of the Greeks and Romans. By reading these books and reflecting upon the consequences of each decision, students will be able to learn more about the motivations that led each hero to make the choices he did. These retellings will have a unique appeal to Web 2.0 readers: Follow Your Fates invites adolescent readers become part of the action, rather than mere observers on the sideline. And while books shouldn't be judged merely on the basis of their covers, many young people definitely do select reading material based on cool artwork. All three books in the trilogy have a spectacular and visually stunning comic book-style cover designed by the award-winning Brian DeLandro Hardison as well as five dramatic black and white line art illustrations in the text. (Brian won the 2008 Comics Contest sponsored by the American Philological Association.)... Middle schoolers and their teachers will also appreciate the helpful glossary appended in each volume to help them keep all the unfamiliar and strange-sounding names straight. --Sharon Kazmierski, The Clearing House, The Classical Outlook
