Close your eyes and you could be in fifth-century Egypt. With his trademark ability to step into the shoes of his fifth-century protagonists, once again Christian Cameron plunges us headlong into the thick of the action. This time, the indomitable Arimnestos of Plataea finds himself caught up in the ill-fated Spartan expedition to the land of the Sphinx, while on the horizon, forces gather for the colossal naval battle of Artemesium. Whether it's in the unforgiving furnace of the Egyptian desert or the blood-frothed seas off the coast of Greece, Christian Cameron brings these momentous events to thrilling life as we watch the epic story unfold.
Awesome, both among the best of the author and of historical fiction in general...Great stuff begging volume 5 asap. FANTASYBOOKCRITIC The characters as ever are some of the most rounded and real that you will read in any historical fiction novel, the action is probably the most realistic and authentic. What sets these tales apart is that while i get the cut and thrust of battle that i love in these ancient tales, I also get so much more... This truly ranks up there as my all-time favourite series.
