It's set a few decades after this, during the lesser known Peloponnesian Wars; effectively a civil war between Athens and Sparta.

While it's a very different environment from my debut book Salvage, it has the same energy and fast-pace. And for history lovers, I'm aiming for a much more authentic treatment of the period, unlike some of the movies that have been set in this part of history in recent years.(less)

This rapid pace of change has created a perception among man...

A great concept and a really good read, though I would have liked the story arcs to come together a little sooner. That said, the action drives the story along at a good pace and I'm looking forward to getting stuck into book two.
