Publisher's Summary

Ruler. Puppet Master. Killer.

Glory. Death. Well-born Athenian cavalry officer Kineas fought shoulder to shoulder with Alexander in his epic battles against the Persian hordes. But on his return from the east to his native city, he finds not glory but shame - and exile.

With nothing to his name but his military skills, Kineas agrees to lead a band of veterans to the city of Olbia, where the Tyrant is offering good money to train the city's elite cavalry. But soon Kineas and his men find they have stumbled into a deadly maze of intrigue and conspiracy as the Tyrant plots to use them as pawns in the increasingly complex power games between his own citizens and the dread military might of Macedon.

Caught between his duty to the Tyrant, his loyalty to his men and a forbidden love affair with a charismatic Scythian noblewoman, Kineas must call on all his Athenian guile, his flair on the battlefield and even - he is convinced - the intervention of the gods to survive.

It’s a Fact! Cameron is the Best!

I love Cornwell, Archer and Woulk! But? Cameron just develops better and uses modern day language to describe history. I’ve listened to every book from above authors mentioned but somehow? Cameron pulls me into the moment of experience. At first, I think it’s a bit cheesy and Cameron does open his books a bit weak. However? It just always gets better! He gets stronger after chapter 2-3. It’s amazing! I’ve listened to every book he’s written on Audible; no regrets! I can’t believe his books are so cheap on Audible! Far better then most! I almost feel guilty spending a credit on a $16.95 book. Well worth it!

Meh

Not nearly as good as "Killer Of Men." The accents became quite annoying after awhile.
