Description

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of The Falcon of Sparta by Conn Iggulden. 

In the Ancient World, one army was feared above all others. This is their story. 

When Cyrus, brother to the Great King of Persia, attempts to overthrow his reckless sibling, he employs a Greek mercenary army of 10,000 soldiers. When this army becomes stranded as a result of the unexpected death of Cyrus and then witnesses the treacherous murder of its entire officer corps, despair overtakes them. 

One man, Xenophon, rallies the Greeks. As he attempts to lead them to freedom across 1,500 miles of hostile territory seething with adversaries, 10,000 men set off on the long way home.

Good read, not his most exciting book

I've become a huge fan of the author over the last few years. I've read most of his books and put the Mongol series at the top without question. This one is less exciting with a slow steady pace, but still very well written and well narrated.

halfway through and love it

I love this author. this was the first audio book I've heard too so I was a bit weary, hoping it wouldn't wreck a good thing. however, the narrator is great at what he does and is the perfect fit for reading this aloud.

Another great story from Iggulden

Great story. The narrator was good and kept you interested. I'm a big fan of Iggulden and this is another great one. #Audible1

Epic Adventure Awaits

A great story about one of the most epic adventures in history. The narrator brings the characters to life, all of whom are well written. If you are a fan of ancient history, you will greatly enjoy this book.

An excellent retelling

Very enjoyable despite the somewhat apathetic tone of the narration. This author - except for the Rome series - is one of the best historical novelists of any period. Recommended.

Enjoyed the narrating, liked Conqueror more

Enjoyed the narrating, liked Conqueror more. This story is a bit to straight forward and fast paced to my liking, missing some culture and depth. Even with the surprising developments that happen to some character. Still, enjoyed it a lot.

Another Work of Art

Iggulden knocks it out of the park once again, it's gripping, from start to finish

An Interesting historical fiction story

The story was very well told with characters which you become to care about. I didn't know much about this part of history but it is an interesting slice of history which I have found myself researching more on. I'm a massive fan of Conn Iggulden's writing and am happy to say this book doesn't disappoint. I haven't listened to Michael Fox's narrations before I feel that he did a good job with narrating this book. Towards the end he started to really win me over. I think he is still quite new to narrating and will in time become an excellent narrator. For this performance I will give him a 4 star performance but I don't let that discourage you from listening to it. I would definitely listen to him read another book. At the end of Conn Iggulden's books there is usually a note from him explaining where he made changes to history to help with character arcs and moving the plot on (I love reading this section). I was very disappointed to find there wasn't one for this audio-book.
