Description

Ruler. Puppet Master. Killer.

Glory. Death. Well-born Athenian cavalry officer Kineas fought shoulder to shoulder with Alexander in his epic battles against the Persian hordes. But on his return from the east to his native city, he finds not glory but shame - and exile.

With nothing to his name but his military skills, Kineas agrees to lead a band of veterans to the city of Olbia, where the Tyrant is offering good money to train the city's elite cavalry. But soon Kineas and his men find they have stumbled into a deadly maze of intrigue and conspiracy as the Tyrant plots to use them as pawns in the increasingly complex power games between his own citizens and the dread military might of Macedon.

Caught between his duty to the Tyrant, his loyalty to his men and a forbidden love affair with a charismatic Scythian noblewoman, Kineas must call on all his Athenian guile, his flair on the battlefield and even - he is convinced - the intervention of the gods to survive.

Long winded and boring

I listened to this Christian Cameron novel , because Ben Kane said in an interview , he wished he could write as good as Christian Cameron. He is long winded and uses too many words to say too little. Nothing ever happens. I call his writing style as simply boring. If any one wants to know who I consider a good author in historical fiction, that’s easy Bernard Cornwell. And yes Ben Kane. I’m going to try Cameron’s other books , I’ll try Alexander , it’s 41 hours. Bet it’s boring, but I’ll try , and really truly give the book a chance. If I listen to 2-3 hours and I’m not hooked . Why read more ?

It’s a Fact! Cameron is the Best!

I love Cornwell, Archer and Woulk! But? Cameron just develops better and uses modern day language to describe history. I’ve listened to every book from above authors mentioned but somehow? Cameron pulls me into the moment of experience.

At first, I think it’s a bit cheesy and Cameron does open his books a bit weak. However? It just always gets better! He gets stronger after chapter 2-3. It’s amazing! I’ve listened to every book he’s written on Audible; no regrets!

I can’t believe his books are so cheap on Audible! Far better then most! I almost feel guilty spending a credit on a $16.95 book.

Well worth it!

weak

for a book on war it has very little action. I found it very lacking in detail about the combat.

Great story

Loved the story and the characters. The narrator missed some dramatic opportunities at key points of the story.

Meh

Not nearly as good as "Killer Of Men."
The accents became quite annoying after awhile.

Christain Cameron is becoming one of my favorites

I started listening to Christian Cameron with his Chivalry series. This is the 3rd of his series I've broken into. He is consistently a top notch story teller. Hes stories are always believable and amazingly true to historic events. I loved this book as well, does not disappoint, If you enjoy history, or his previous books i highly recommend this one as well. Can't wait for the sequels to get on Audible.

Becoming my historical go to guy.

Christian Cameron has done this to me twice now, I bought this because I assumed it was a story about a guy in Alexander's army. I was only half right. Of course, I got a bit upset when that didn't happen, but I kept going and it ended up being exactly what I wanted and I didn't even know it. Great story.
