      Will Artemisia make an appearance? This is an extraordinary retelling the story of outside Athens, as Herodotus gives us none of it. The scenes where Apollonia and her family flee from the invaders and the battle between the Eretrian hoplites and the Persian horsemen are thrilling, and at the I loved the first chapter! The Second Persian War had begun, and the fighting quickly became desperate on both land and sea. Returning to his farm, Arimnestos finds that his wife, Euphoria, has died in childbirth, and in an instant his laurels turn to dust.

There, he assured them that no building work was on-going, and urged them to send emissaries to Athens to see for themselves. Would democracy—the greatest of Greek contributions to civilization—have emerged when it did? All that he learned and practiced as an inspirational leader had built up to this moment.
