With inventiveness and literary elegance the author introduces the major historical personalities of those times like the Greek Miltiades and the Persian Artaphernes .
It is a very entertaining book to read,a very accurate and pleasantly presented history lesson and also the narrative of the evolution into both hard manhood and knowledge of self in the search of his destiny of a remarkable young man,the hero of the novel.
A Classic,not to be missed by the fans of the historical novel.
Cameron does a remarkable job of making the reader feel as if he's walking the ancient world of Greece during the bronze and iron age, while at the same time seeing the same motivations that drive us today. This book ends with the promise of more to be said from Arimnestos and I for one am looking forward to hearing from him again.
A great piece of history that entertains and enlightens. Loved it!
Lots of reviews chronicle the story and the action very well so suffice for me to say that I enjoyed getting to know the central character. I do feel he is a little too "super-hero" to be true, but his exploits are rousing and enjoyable. The love of his life (Briseus?) is a cynical, snotty, self-seeking boor and totally unworthy of him. I do hope she comes to a sticky end some time soon in the series, so that he can move on. I'm not optimistic.
Anyway, some high adventure hear and well worth following this guy's progress.
No typos or bad grammar here; super!
Negatives: maps would have been nice.
