  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 January #1
    It's not easy being the king's brother, especially when he earmarks you for execution. Fearing a potential rival for the throne of Persia, King Artaxerxes follows his late father's advice and orders his younger brother, Cyrus, be put to death. Backed into a corner, the heretofore loyal Cyrus raises an army of Greek mercenaries and rebels, challenging the mighty Persian army. In true Iggulden fashion, swords clash and blood flows as extreme sibling rivalry plays out and reaches a brutal climax. Facing seemingly insurmountable odds on the battlefield, the hardscrabble followers of Cyrus also struggle to survive the elements and ever-dwindling food and other supplies. After Cyrus dies a hero's death, legendary soldier, philosopher, and historian Xenophon assumes the mantle of leadership, defying the odds by strategically evading the superior forces of the omnipresent Persians to guide the legendary Ten Thousand home. The remarkably prolific and popular Iggulden returns to the ancient world after his War of Roses novels and does his usual outstanding job of fictionalizing historically significant military events.
