This novel in the scintillating Tyrant series brings the epic siege of Rhodes in 306 BC to spectacular life.

The death of Alexander the Great was the signal to begin the greatest war in human history - a war that swept like a firestorm from one end of the known world to the other, as his former generals fought like jackals to make his vast empire their own.

By 305 BC, the most powerful players in this deadly game faced each other across the Mediterranean: Ptolemy, the master of Egypt, and Antigonus One-Eye, master of Asia. And between them, the island of Rhodes, a strategic fortress city that neither could afford to cede to the enemy.

But trapped in the city was one man with the courage and determination to save it from destruction. A man who, surrounded by his closest friends and the woman he loved, simply could not afford to fail.

A man called Satyrus.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Gripping and compulsively readable, the ancient world springs to life in these pages * GOOD BOOK GUIDE *
The more Cameron's 700-page story progresses the more impressive it becomes. Detail is piled upon detail to reconstruct the Alexandrian world... the battles that punctuated Alexander's journey with his armies from Greece to the Indus valley are described with enormous verve and power. The ruthless intrigue and politicking that dominate his court are also brilliantly evoked. And, as fate and his own insatiable desire for conquest and glory drive Alexander towards death in Babylon at the age of 32, a genuine sense of an extraordinary personality emerges. Cameron has risen to the challenge of creating a portrait of Alexander that matches - and often eclipses - those of earlier novelists * SUNDAY TIMES *
The saga of daring, heroism, vanity and monumental battles reveals a man who believed himself invincible * CHOICE *
It's wonderfully descriptive, the characters are fascinating and above all else it's the story of Alexander that everyone should read... Finally add to this Christian's wonderful writing style, with a cracking prose, a wonderful sense of pace and when backed with an instantly identifiable writing style, it's a book that is going to take a hell of a lot to beat this year especially in the award season, and let's face it, that's saying something considering how early this one's out * FALCATA TIMES *
Compulsively readable, these pages make the ancient world spring to life * GOOD BOOK GUIDE *
