The opening volume of the Alexander the Great trilogy, finally back in print
From the Back Cover
At twenty, when his reign began, Alexander the Great was already a seasoned soldier and a complex, passionate man. Fire From Heaven tells the story of the boy Alexander, and the years that shaped him.
Resolute, fearless, and inheriting a striking beauty, Alexander still needed much to make him The Great. He must survive, though with lifelong scars, the dark furies of his Dionysiac mother, who kept him uncertain even of his own paternity; respect his father's talent for war and kingcraft, though sickened by his sexual grossness; and come to terms with his heritage from both.
