The story of how Alexander the Great conquered the world - first crushing Greek resistance to Macedonian rule, then destroying the Persian Empire in three monumental battles before marching into the unknown and final victory in India - is a truly epic tale that has mesmerised countless generations of listeners. He crammed more adventure into his thirty-three years than any other human being before or since, and now for the first time a novelist will tell the tale in a single suitably epic volume. The combination of Alexander's life story and Christian Cameron's unrivalled skills as an historian and storyteller will ensure that this will not only be the definitive version for many years to come, but also one of the most exciting historical epics ever written.

This was a fantastic book, especially if you are a fan of historical fiction. Was reading it whilst my wife was in labour with a daughter that we then named Alexandra. That's how good it was!

Cameron's Alexander is a magnificent general who leads from the front and is the most ferocious fighter on Earth. But he is also a manipulative megalomaniac who believes his own propaganda, and whose ego is as big as his empire. A fascinating portrayal.
