Not sure that's the exact quote, but what a rush. Cameron doesn't just write about Greece, he brings you there. Every cavalry charge, every spear strike, every time the phalanx slams together you can almost feel it.
This took place after the New Achilles and knowing the characters like old friends now made me enjoy it even more than the first book. Maybe it was also that the pace of the book was, like the cavalry charges he describes, breakneck pace with enemies on all sides all looking for weakness to exploit. You were barely out of one desperate struggle when another enemy attacked, so much so that it's almost unbelievable if you didn't know that it really happened exactly as he tells it. Bravo Christian
