Waterstones Says

Continuing the thrilling military exploits of the legendary Pericles, Iggulden's thundering second entry in the Golden Age series finds the fearsome Athenian leader waging war against a weakened - but still formidable - Sparta.

Pericles is more than a hero. He's the leader of Athens. The empire's beacon of light.

But even during times of peace, the threat of Sparta - Athens's legendary rival - looms large on the horizon. When a sudden catastrophe brings Sparta to its knees, Pericles sees a golden opportunity to forever shift the balance of power in his city's favour.

For sometimes, the only way to win lasting peace is to wage war.

Sparta may be weak, but their power is far from extinguished. Soon a ruthless young boy steps forward to lead the Spartans back to greatness.

As the drums of battle draw closer, can Pericles rise once more?

Or will the world's greatest empire fall under his watch?
