King of Ithaca

King of Ithaca - Glyn Iliffe Eperitus finds himself exiled from his home country, stumbles across Odysseus and then follows him around like a puppy, turning up just when he's needed and helping to save the day.

The story is well enough told, but there's never any sense of danger to the main characters. Eperitus is handy as a means of explaining things to the outsider/reader, but everything seems a bit too convenient.

He is quickly taken into Odysseus' confidence, eavesdrops on a private conversation with a goddess, and constantly turns up just in time to save the day.

Could have done with more of a sense of suspense or danger.
