Funeral Games

An action-packed tale of betrayal and revenge set amidst the war between Alexander the Great's generals, and climaxing in the most spectacular battle of the ancient world Satyrus and Melitta, twin heirs to a rich kingdom on the Black Sea, become desperate fugitives when their mother, Scythian warrior-princess Srayanka, is cut down in a savage act of betrayal. Accompanied by their tutor, the Spartan Philokles, they must make a perilous journey west, pursued by ruthless assassins, to find sanctuary with the army of their father's closest friend, Diodorus. But Diodorus is caught up in the tangled web of alliances, betrayals, and intrigue that followed Alexander the Great's death, as his generals fought over the huge empire he had created—and soon the twins will have their first taste of real battle as two Macedonian warlords clash. In a violent and unstable world, they must choose sides carefully, as Antigonus One-Eye, and his brilliant son Demetrius, prepare to take on the might of Ptolemy's Egypt, and the forces gather for the biggest and most spectacular battle the world has ever seen—Gaza.
