Selected by Sarah Broadhurst

4th in a series that keeps getting better and better. The writing portrays so well what is a perennially fascinating period of history. Action packed as ever but also brought vividly to life with the excellent day to day detail of the characters. A Highly recommended read.



Comparison: Seven Pressfield, Ben Kane, Valerio Massimo Manfredi

Synopsis

Tyrant : King of the Bosporus by Christian Cameron

They were born in the middle of a battle, into a world at war. And from their first moments of life, twins Satyrus and Melitta were fighting for survival. Their father, a Greek mercenary, was cut down not long after they had taken their first breaths; their Scythian mother was cruelly murdered when they were still children. But Satyrus and Melitta are children no more. They have learned how to fight, how to love, how to plot and how to kill. Now it is time to leave their adopted home, the city of Alexandria, and the protection of Alexander the Great's former general, Ptolemy - and seek revenge. Now it is time to go to war ...


Reviews

Gives readers everything they could hope for in a work of historical fiction set in the time of Alexander's successors. . . . Fans of the series, and of the slings and arrows of ancient warfare, won't simply find themselves eagerly hovering above the ancient Euxine watching the action unfold. They'll be over the moon. -- Globe and Mail

    OK, Enough of posting my own reviews. Still, this is one of my books I guess I feel is very under-appreciated...... http://t.co/gHQ0vcs3D0
