"Noble Smith brings the gory political struggles of fifth-century [B.C.] Greece vividly to life in a way that I haven't seen since the novels of Mary Renault. A superb historical novel by a master storyteller."—Angus Donald, author of Warlord, on Spartans at the Gates.
Nikias of Plataea has survived battle, shipwreck, and torture. But now the young warrior must face his greatest challenge: leading the people of his city-state on a desperate exodus to Athens while being hunted down by the largest Spartan expeditionary force in history.
From the burning forests of the legendary Mount Kithaeron, to the plague-ridden streets of Athens, to the dreaded Prison Pits of Syrakuse, Nikias has to use his fists, sword, and wits to defeat his enemies, and bring aid to a citadel cut off from the rest of the world by merciless invaders.
Award-winning author Noble Smith's Sword of Apollo brings to a close the thrilling Warrior trilogy, set during the epic war that tore apart Ancient Greece.
The book just stops
Its the last book in the a trilogy and yet it did not have an ending. No story resolution. It not that the book left questions unanswered, smith left the entire story unfinished, he brought up new issues to in the second to last chapter and never addressed them. Controversy started in the first book still left unresolved. Its life the author just got sick of writing and stopped without writing the last 5 chapters
