'An epic piece of historical fiction, full of political intrigue and vivid action' Robert Fabbri
Themistocles stands as the battle-scarred leader of Athens. Yet he is no nobleman, and is distrusted by many.
But those who stand against him cannot argue with two things: his victories as a warrior, and the vast Persian army heading their way . . .
And so Themistocles must fight.
Fight the invaders. Fight the allies who despise him. Fight for his city.
As the Persians draw close, he must prove himself again and again in battle.
Because history belongs to the courageous . . .
