This is the first solo novel for this author, who has previously written with his father under the name Gordon Kent, and he is just as capable a writer alone as with his dad.
Cameron knows his history and fills the pages with great detail from the period as well as giving a super action packed story. If you like a good historical, military story then Cameron is a new author to definitely try.
Tyrant by Christian Cameron
Glory. Death. Well-born Athenian cavalry officer, Kineas, fought shoulder to shoulder with Alexander in his epic battles against the Persian hordes. But on his return from the east to his native city, he finds not glory but shame - and exile.
With nothing to his name but his military skills, Kineas agrees to lead a band of veterans to the city of Olbia, where the Tyrant is offering good money to train the city's elite cavalry. But soon Kineas and his men find they have stumbled into a deadly maze of intrigue and conspiracy as the Tyrant plots to use them as pawns in the increasingly complex power games between his own citizens, and the dread military might of Macedon.
Caught between his duty to the Tyrant, his loyalty to his men and a forbidden love affair with a charismatic Scythian noblewoman, Kineas must call on all his Athenian guile, his flair on the battlefield, and even - he is convinced - the intervention of the gods, to survive.
ReviewsA terrific epic. Bring on volume two. HUDDERSFIELD DAILY EXAMINER
