Torn From Troy is a re-creation of Homer's Odyssey as a young adult novel. It begins with the siege of Troy by the Greeks and is told through the eyes of Alexi, a fifteen year-old Trojan boy who is captured by them and made a slave. Alexi is angry and his lack of submission and mouthing off gets him a few beatings. But Alexi is also smart and brave, and this too is noticed by Lopex, the chief commander, who makes use of Alexi's healing skills learnt from his late father. Alexi has no choice but to embark on the perils and adventures that comes with traveling on the sea with what he considers barbarian soldiers.
Note: This book is rated V = a lot of violence, warfare, bloody and gory
