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.

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

Cameron's gift is for spinning out a rich setting through his obvious devotion to Classics... plus, Cameron's ability to conjure up what Homer called the battle haze might make the ancient bard proud BOSTON GLOBE & MAIL
