This is an odyssey to democracy; these are the origins of Themistokles... When Phokion is given a mission by a dying queen in Egypt, who wants to atone for atrocities she has committed across the Libyan Desert, he meets up with his sister's family in Athens. While he is there, he is caught up in the assassination of an Athenian tyrant and must decide how he should proceed with matters concerning his family, his mission and the emerging democratic movement. Some people do what is right, many are mistaken and others deceive... Arkhon : An epic tale from the dawn of democracy is a fast-paced thriller that follows the fate of a former mercenary who becomes entangled in the overthrow of tyranny and the emergence of democracy in ancient Athens. An exciting tale of adventure set in the ancient world, the novel reflects recent political upheavals around the world. Exploring present-day issues that include political legitimacy, foreign intervention, revenge, superstition and the manipulation of religion, the drama draws directly from the tensions and discourse that developed around the Arab uprisings of 2011-2013. As Lowry explores the modern parallels between the ancient and current world, this exciting tale, grounded by reality, comes to life. Stories from Herodotus are woven together with the insights of Homer and Aesop, and their ideas, relevant throughout history, resonate today through Arkhon. This novel will be enjoyed by those who relish epic historical adventures and will also appeal to individuals with an interest in current affairs.
