What a fantastic read. For those who harbour a love for ancient Greece, and for those who find Gemmell's style irresistibly enticing I heartily recommend reading this novel, and it's predecessor "Dark Prince". It suitably captures the essence of Greek hegemony in ancient times and exudes pure heroic fantasy leaving 'nothing in the tank' so to speak. An excellent plot, coupled with believable characters makes this book a sound culmination for a two part series that some authors could not encompass six.
