Baker & Taylor
After fighting his way through numerous battles and hardships for twenty years, Odysseus finally reaches his home land of Ithaca where he discovers that his island has been overrun and his family’s safety is in jeopardy--forcing him to take on one more fight in order to settle all scores once and for all.

After struggling against the gods and his fate for more than twenty years, Odysseus has returned to Ithaca at last. But things have changed: his island has been overrun by suitors who clamor for his wife's hand in marriage and plague his son, Telemachus. With the help of the gray-eyed goddess, Athena, Odysseus and Telemachus must set out to regain control of Ithaca. In the last book of the series based on episodes from Homer's Odyssey, Mary Pope Osborne brings one of the greatest adventures of all time to a dramatic climax.
