This series continues to live up to its promise - packed with historical details and a plot that races along, making it ideal for its intended audience, and a very good read for anyone of any age. Lysander must come to terms with his own identity in this book, and there are still issues of prejudice and loyalty and enmity to deal with.
A wonderful series.
The story continues to follow our hero, Lysander, who is half Helot and half Spartan, as he sails to the Spartan colony town of Taras. Lysander must carry the burden of being mixed race, the death of his guardian and grandfather, the Ephor Sarpedon, the constant fighting in battles, and his feelings for the downtrodden Helots. Spartans must be courageous and are honoured when death comes from a wound to the front, whilst bringing only shame if they die with a wound to the back or if they are forced to flee.
This is a great story of standing up for yourself and what you believe in, with a lot of blood and gore thrown in as well.
I'd hoped to learn more about the Spartans but didn't, all I got was a rehashed version of the best lines from 300 "Come back with your shield or on it" "Fight in the shade" "Lay down your weapons, come and get them" even Leonidas is in there.
They are also very short books, I finished one on a short flight.
So in summary, good for a young reader or someone looking for a quick holiday read. I doubt I'lll buy his next book.
