The exciting new historical novel in Mark Knowles' Blades of Bronze series. You've read the myths of Ancient Greece... now see how life really was in the Age of Heroes.

Decades after the fabled voyage of Argo, the last remaining Argonauts are scattered to the corners of the Greek world, old men living on past glories.

The great victory at Troy is naught but a memory. The Age of Heroes is dead. The Sea People are coming.

With the enemy inearly at the gates. Only one young man can rise up, channel the spirit of the Argonauts, and inspire and renew the heroism of old: Xandros, callow grandson of the great Jason. His mission is a desperate one, and it may yet be too late. Will the old world crumble and burn, or will a new hero rise to victory?

Reviews for the Blades of Bronze series:

'A bold and thrilling voyage that plunges you deep into the world of ancient myth. Knowles's storytelling captured my imagination from the very first page. Wonderfully atmospheric.' Daisy Dunn
'What a spectacular triumph! Knowles has taken a reassuringly familiar legend and elevated it into a new, realistic and engrossing story.' Sam Taw
'A deeply researched historical epic, so brilliantly brought to life I could taste the salt air on my tongue.' Adam Lofthouse

“There have been more devastating demolition jobs wreaked upon a man’s character than that done to Jason, leader of the Argonauts”
