Publisher's Summary

In 431 BC, ancient Greece experienced its own "Pearl Harbor" - a treacherous sneak attack that would mark the start of the bloody war between the democracy of Athens and the tyranny of Sparta. Caught between these superpowers, the independent city-state of Plataea became the arena where their battle for control of all of Greece would begin.
In Plataea, the young Greek warrior Nikias dreams of glory in the Olympic games as he trains for the pankration - the no-holds-barred ultimate fighting of the era - until an act of violence in defense of his beloved threatens to send him into exile. But before his trial can take place, a traitor opens the city gates to a surprise attack force.
Suddenly trapped inside their own fortress, the Plataeans are fighting for their lives. As Nikias seeks to discover the identity of the man who betrayed the city, he makes a daring escape, gathers an army, and leads this ragtag band into a suicidal battle at the gates of the citadel - a battle that will decide the fates of his family, his friends, and the woman he loves.
In the vein of Bernard Cornwell, Conn Iggulden, and Steven Pressfield, Sons of Zeus marks the beginning of a richly detailed new action-adventure series.

Thoroughly enjoyed this story and narration!

What did you like best about this story?

i felt transported to another world, and completely taken in by this group of unlikely and reluctant heros. This is a gem of historical fiction and I would highly recommend.

Which character – as performed by Elijah Alexander – was your favorite?

I was actually impressed with the entire cast of characters, and the way in which the narrator skillfully brought each one to life. This writer and narrator are well matched in their style and passion for the content, and deliver a rich and totally immersive experience

OK story, crappy narrator!

The story is certainly no "Gates of Fire" or "Lion of the Sun", but it would be entertaining enough with the right narrator. This guy stinks! He's terrible! He tries to do voices and ruins the story.
