I don t know where to begin I d start off with saying what I like about the book but in this case there is literally nothing I don t regret the time spent reading it though It taught me a lot about what works and what doesn tThe whole novel is a huge miss on one of the most sacred tenets of writing show don t tell It was like listening to someone summarizing a movie they just watched and expecting me to get the full experience of someone who actually watched it Too much was left unsaid starting from the characterisation of the protagonists which fell flat with every turn of the page Most of the time their motivations and reactions felt unconvincing and inconsistent with how they were portrayed This especially goes for Talos the main protagonist whose physical disability turns out to be just empty words The idea had potential to make interesting obstacles for the protagonist but no despite him being lame from birth he becomes a strong invincible warrior and was even given a post as view spoilera mercenary and then general by Pausanias which made zero sense but okay hide spoiler

Another wonderful piece by Manfredi though not uite as riveting as the Alexander trilogy Valerio captures the conflict among the various Greek cities well and makes it very personal Talos the Cripple is a most engaging character From the beginning when we see him cradled by his anguished father who has to abandon him on the montain according to Spartan law we fall in love with him as well as the shepherd who finds him He grows up without knowing his twin the fine Spartan warrior What disappoints is that this part is resolved about half way through in a rather unsatisfactory manner But Valerio finds fresh conflict in the Spartans insatiable desire to enslave the Helots Talos raised by Helots but born a Spartan must choose which side to fight for With a romantic twist this makes for a wonderful read Of course there is the Athenian penchant for long speeches At times that got tedious and I found myself skipping Still a good one

This was a stunning story Those who are fans of historical novels of Ancient Greek like myself this is probably a must read While the story is fictional the author manages to as authentically depict the customs habits political institutions religion and popular traditions of this time as possible The story is engaging and it is told in a language that seems to reproduce the mentality and manner of living of ancient Spartans Every line seems believable the author masterfully mixes the original sources with the imaginary story I have to agree with Bernard Cornwell this is indeed an intelligent knowledgeable and entertaining story as much an education as an entertainment
