The Golden Age 02: Empire

10.79

Pericles returns home more than a hero: he’s the leader of Athens, the empire’s beacon of light in the dark. But even during times of peace, the threat of Sparta – Athens’s legendary rival – looms large on the horizon. When a sudden catastrophe brings Sparta to its knees, Pericles sees a golden opportunity to forever shift the balance of power in his city’s favour.

THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER

JOIN PERICLES, THE LION OF ATHENS, ON A JOURNEY TO SECURE THE FATE OF THE ATHENIAN EMPIRE
___________

THE GOLDEN AGE OF ATHENS:
THE JEWEL IN THE GREEK EMPIRE

Standing like a colossus over the city is Pericles:
politician, general, architect of the city’s fortunes.

Yet some look on jewels with envy.

Forever a threat from the south,
Sparta will not kneel to its rival.
From their ranks rises a young boy
– ruthless, courageous, hungry.
Soon he will lead them . . .

Pericles is no longer young.
His city is divided – against the Spartan threat, against him.
Can Athens’ most famous son rouse its citizens to war?

Will the Lion of Athens roar one final time?
