I've been reading a lot of Ben Kane, Conn Iggulden, SJA Tunney fiction (amongst others), as well as books by Tom Holland, Stephen Pressfield and Boris Johnson.
Whilst I am not yet 'Rome'd out, I wonder if there are similar fictional works araound Sparta, Greece and/or Persia.
I've got/read similarly themed books by;
Paul Kearney - Macht Trilogy for instance,
Valerio Massimo Manfredi - Spartan,
Michael Pritsos - Hoplite: Torch of Prometheus
Mary Renault - Persian Boy
Scott Oden novels - Memnon as an example
Added to which i have re-read David Gemmell's Lion of Macedon & Dark prince novels about 5 times.
Any recommendations for me please? preferably available on kindle so I can check out a sample chapter first.
