40.0% "Really enjoying VDH's style. Sometimes spinning an epic tale of the rugged, Boiotian hero, Melon; sometimes delivering a lecture on ancient Greek history. I'm not ever sure when he passes from one to the other, or which I prefer. Very pleasant, and interesting read."

Scotty Dickey Just a few chapters in. I'm really enjoying this historical novel about the Theban general whose stunning victory at Leuktra initiated the decline of Sparta's military dominance.
