From the beginning, the novel is uncompromising, and perhaps shocking to the modern mind of the cold blooded eugenics practiced by the Lakonians (Spartans). The story follows Lysander’s harsh, and brutalised Rearing in the Spartan Agógé, or educational institution, as well as keeping up with the international events, and the intrigues that built up in the years that preceded the outbreak of the war. This book is a faithful reconstruction in story form, of the enigma that is Sparta, and some of its peculiar institutions, and customs, and one of the most turbulent, and important periods in western history, and the author has kindly included explanatory endnotes to some interesting and obscure facts that lead us to reassess some of our opinions of this warrior race.The first book covers the first twenty or so years of Lysander’s life, from 453 to 431 BC, and we are introduced to some of the main players in Greek history, whose names still resonate down to us to this day, breathing life into them in cameo forms, such as Sokrates, Perikles, Hagnon, Nikias, Demosthenes, and Archidamos, Ramphias, Tellis, Melesippos, Agis, Gylippos, and many more from Sparta, and their pre-war power mongering .A very good first novel, very informative, and I look forward to seeing it out there, and reading the sequels.
