    Steven Pressfield is the internationally best-selling author of Gates of Fire and Tides of War. An epic of love and war, Last of the Amazons is a gripping, imaginative novel of the ancient world filled with Pressfield’s trademark extraordinary attention to detail. In the time before Homer, the legendary Theseus, king of Athens, journeys to the nation of proud female warriors whom the Greeks called Amazons.

    Sean says: "Another good book from Pressfield"
    "Pressfield at his best! A Great Ancient Novel."

    Story

    I believe that this book was written before his pinnacle work, The Gates of Fire, but Pressfield's take on the Amazons is one of the finest historical fiction novels I have read...and I have read quite a few. I wrote a long passionate review of this book but scrapped it to simply say that I am so pleased I got the audio version of this book even though I read it years ago. The level of detail on every subject brought up in the book makes this journey a truly fascinating, rewarding, deep-breathing and supremely rich read and experience. I have read all of his work and it is easy to understand why it would be very difficult to follow any of his work, from this book through to his Rommel book that could reach the heights he attains in this book. Obviously, this is my cup of literate tea.
