Publisher Description

It is said that it takes nine days and nine nights to reach the lowest level of Tartaros. Down the River of Oblivion where the shades of dead drink to forget their past. I have been there. I have seen it. For your father laid waste to Thebes, as a message to all Hellas, all who dare challenge the Sons of Herakles!

The Bronze Age, Greece. The Trojan War ended long ago. The hero Herakles has fallen and since his son is not of age, the control of the Peloponnese is lost to the Mycenaeans. Their empire grows to be the ruling power of Greece, but with the Oracle’s counsel comes a prophecy…

The rise of the Sons of Herakles.

Aristodemos, descendant of Herakles and king of the Dorians is taught from birth of his destiny to conquer Tisamenus, the tyrant of the Mycenaean Empire. With all odds against him, he must learn to teach his tribe of savages to become an army of warriors, while undertaking a perilous journey across Greece to fulfill their ancestor's legacy. Should Aristodemos and his tribesmen be victorious, they will alter the course of history forever.

Steeped in the most ancient of myths, this swift and bloody struggle depicts a historical time least known.
