Beginning from Apollo book

Analysis For the most part, Book III deals with the Trojans's search for their promised homeland, covering almost their entire voyage up to the moment when the storm raised by Aeolus drives them away from their nearby goal of Italy.

She assists the heroes in The Tyrant's Tomb, where she then becomes centurion of the fifth cohort. As we shall see, Anchises's authority will be strengthened after his death, for he will be Aeneas's guide in the underworld, and he will predict Rome's future greatness.
