Description

Kineas, the Athenian cavalry commander, has come a long way since being dismissed from the army of Alexander and vengefully exiled by his own city. Together, his mercenary force and their Scythian allies have defeated a mighty Macedonian army at the Ford of the River God, and his adopted city of Olbia is now free once more. But his destiny will not allow him to enjoy the fruits of victory for long. Far to the east, at the farthest edge of the Sea of Grass, Alexander is threatening to crush the Scythian hordes once and for all. The Lady Srayanka of the Cruel Hands, the Scythian warrior-princess who spurned a king's love to be at Kineas's side, is pledged to take her tribe east to help stop 'the monster' - and Kineas knows he has no choice but to follow, even if it means embracing the violent death in battle that he has seen prefigured in countless dreams. But long before he can confront the might of Alexander's army alongside his beloved Srayanka, he must undertake an epic journey, of breathtaking daring, taking an army through hundreds of miles of hostile terrain - towards his own appointment with fate.show more

Review quote

'[A] great page-turner.' ANCIENT WARFARE 'The minutiae of military logistics, the mediations in inter-tribe rivalries, and the casual contemporary scene-setting prove unexpectedly engrossing... a sword-slash above the rest of its ilk.' IRISH EXAMINER 'A sweeping, deeply moving epic that takes the reader into the heart of a different time and culture.' HISTORICAL NOVELS REVIEW 'The author has picked a forgotten part of history and brough it to life with wonderful characters and amazingly vivid battle scenes... a story that is sweeping, powerful and provides a fresh look at the past.' HUDDERSFIELD DAILY EXAMINERshow more
