Astraia: Spirit of Defiance


Ancient Greece at the time of the Trojan War.
Will true valour triumph over greed, lust for power and unimaginable evil?

Astraia: Spirit of Defiance follows a teenage princess from Corfu named Astraia who has outstanding fighting skills.

When her cousin is kidnapped by pirates she launches a secret expedition to rescue him, helped by his best friend Leandros. The pair, and the other members of their band, head for the nearby island of Paxos, where they eventually find her cousin and his fellow crew drugged in the hold of a pirate ship. After being tricked by the pirates, Astraia and other members of her band are also taken prisoner and transported to Anti-Paxos where they meet the feared pirate leader, Deimos. He has built up a huge fleet of ships – but for what sinister purpose?

Are the pirates planning to attack her homeland? If so, Astraia needs to alert her father, King Atreus of the impending invasion. Can she and her followers escape and make it back in time to save Corfu and its people from Deimos and his armada?

Astraia: Spirit of Defiance is published on 28 October and the eBook is available now on the Troubador website and other websites.

G I Fitzgerald

Graham Fitzgerald wanted to become an author from a young age, and became a journalist as means of achieving this.

Forty years later, after distinguished careers as a print and TV journalist, working for the BBC, ITV, and Sky News, he has finally completed his first novel: Astraia: Spirit of Defiance.

The book, which is aimed at children and young adults, is set in Ancient Greece at the time of the Trojan War. It features monstrous pirates, an epic battle for power, and an intrepid heroine with an indomitable spirit and a true lust for adventure.

Graham lives in Richmond, Surrey with his wife and youngest son William.
