Killer of Men begins the story of Arimnestos, journeying through a world poised on the brink of an epic confrontation as the emerging civilization of the Greeks starts to flex its muscles against the established empire of the Persians.
Marathon The Battle of Marathon in 490 BC was one of history’s great turning points – the first time the Greeks managed to defeat the Persians in a pitched battle, it enabled the rise of classical Greek civilization. And in the middle of it, torn between two cultures, one of which has already made him a slave, we find Arimnestos. Nicknamed ‘Killer of Men,’ he will lead a decisive contingent of infantry in the thickest of the battle…
Poseidon’s Spear Sometimes a man’s greatest triumph is followed by his greatest sorrow. Returning to his farm, Arimnestos finds that his wife Euphoria has died in childbirth, and in an instant his laurels turn to dust. But the gods are not finished with Arimnestos yet. With nothing left to live for, he throws himself from a cliff into the sea, only to be pulled by strong arms from death’s embrace. When he awakes, he finds himself chained to an oar in a Phoenician trireme.
