TWO LEGENDARY BATTLES.
ONE FEARLESS WARRIOR . . .
Themistocles stands as an archon of Athens: the might of the city is his to command. Yet he is no nobleman, distrusted by many for his modest birthright.
For his presumption.
But those who stand against him cannot argue with two things: his victories as a warrior and the vast Persian force heading their way.
And so Themistocles must fight. To survive the game of politics, to make his name, he must prove himself again and again in battle. On the sea. On land. In the arena of public opinion.
His enemies are legion, his allies do not trust him and the Persians would corrupt him - but history belongs to the courageous . . .
'Brings war in the ancient world to vivid, gritty and bloody life. I'm blown away. Protector stand alongside the best of Mary Renault - an epic with the learning of the classics' ANTHONY RICHES
