The ultimate historical adventure novel: the life of Alexander the Great in a single, epic volume.

To many he was a god. To others he was a monster. The truth is even more extraordinary.

As a boy, Alexander dreamed of matching the heroic feats of Achilles. At eighteen he led the Macedonian cavalry to a stunning victory against the Greeks. By twenty-five he had crushed the Persians in three monumental battles and was the master of the greatest empire the world had ever seen. Men began to call him a god. But behind the legend was another, more complex story.

Narrated by his boyhood friend Ptolemy, this is the story of Alexander as you have never heard it before: raw, intimate, thrilling - a story of extraordinary daring and unimaginable endurance; of wanton destruction and murderous intrigue - the epic tragedy of a man who aimed to be more than human.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The more Cameron's 700-page story progresses, the more impressive it becomes. Detail is piled upon detail to reconstruct the Alexandrian world... brilliantly evoked. Cameron has risen to the challenge of creating a portrait of Alexander that matches - and often eclipses - those of earlier novelists. * SUNDAY TIMES *
This 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 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 lets face it, that's saying something considering how early this one's out. * FALCATA TIMES *
