Continuing the epic saga of Alexander the Great, Alexander: The Sands of Ammon brilliantly describes Alexander's quest to conquer Asia, the limitless domain ruled by the Great King of the Persians. In a seemingly impossible venture, Alexander and his men storm Persian fortresses and harbours, crippling King Darius' domain of land and sea. Even the legendary Halicarnassus is defeated by the Macedonian armies. Ruthlessly, Alexander's war machine moves ever onward taking him up into the snow-covered Anatolian highlands. But there is danger ahead. Despite the defeat of Darius, the Island City of Tyre and the Towers of Gaza prove to be formidable obstacles. Undeterred, Alexander surges forth over land and sea to the mysterious land of Egypt. And there, in the sands, lies the Oracle of Ammon, waiting to reveal an amazing truth to Alexander. One that will change his already amazing life.
