TWO LEGENDARY BATTLES. ONE FEARLESS WARRIOR . . .
________

Themistocles stands as the battle-scarred leader of Athens. Yet he is no nobleman. The elite distrust him.

But those conspiring against him cannot argue with his victories on the battlefield. Or the vast Persian army that is coming . . .

And so Themistocles must fight.

Fight the invaders.
Fight the allies who despise him.
Fight to save his city.

As the Persians draw close, he must prove himself again and again in battle.

TO LIVE OR DIE FOR ATHENS.
________

'Brings war in the ancient world to vivid, gritty and bloody life. I'm blown away. Protector stand alongside the best of Mary Renault - an epic with the learning of the classics' ANTHONY RICHES
