KIRKUS REVIEW

This retelling of Alexander's conquest opens with his descent on Tarsus, closes with his death in Babylon and chronicles his loves, hates, powers, fears and utter surrender to the fate foretold for him at Ammon. Prostitution and the love affairs are told as they played their part in the campaigns but there is full historical flavour to a book with a surging life that is in direct line from Graves' I Claudius and Payne's own The Young Prince.
