Product description

Review

One of the finest writers of historical fiction in the world

The more Cameron's 700-page story progresses the more impressive it becomes. Detail is piled upon detail to reconstruct the Alexandrian world ... the battles that punctuated Alexander's journey with his armies from Greece to the Indus valley are described with enormous verve and power. The ruthless intrigue and politicking that dominate his court are also brilliantly evoked. And, as fate and his own insatiable desire for conquest and glory drive Alexander towards death in Babylon at the age of 32, a genuine sense of an extraordinary personality emerges. Cameron has risen to the challenge of creating a portrait of Alexander that matches - and often eclipses - those of earlier novelists - SUNDAY TIMES

This saga of daring, heroism, vanity and monumental battles reveals a man who believed himself invincible - CHOICE

It's wonderfully descriptive, the characters are fascinating and above all else it's the story of Alexander that everyone should read ... Finally add to this Christian's wonderful writing style, with cracking prose, a wonderful sense of pace and when backed with an instantly identifiable writing style, it's a book that is going to take a hell of a lot to beat this year especially in the award season, and let's face it, that's saying something considering how early this one's out - FALCATA TIMES
