Kassandra – priestess of Apollo, princess of Troy, reared with the Amazons and initiate of the Great Mother – recounts the Trojan war:  not a romantic clash of heroes over the beautiful Helen, but a tussle for power between humans and the battle between the ancient worship of the Earth Mother and a new, patriarchal pantheon. Cursed by Apollo when she rejects his seduction, she was doomed to always speak the truth and never be believed.
