Summary

His name is Parmenion. Despised by Spartans and Macedonians alike, he must fight for his place in the world. Yet he will survive.

Dark forces have marked out his destiny as the most fearsome warlord Greece has ever known. For he will become the Lion of Macedon - and will reshape the glory of Greece before he faces the wrath of hell....

Great story, shame about the choice of narrator

I've always loved this book. And I was very excited to hear it as an audiobook. But the choice of narrator made it almost unbearable to listen to.

From his boring and monotonous cadence. To his unsuitably high voice. He really ruined this audiobook for me. Such a shame.

Wrong voice for story

While I’ve listened to Peter Kenny read other book, his voice does not match a butch and male oriented story.

Great story

David gemmell crafts another great story based on a lot of historical fact and blends all the characters into a truly amazing story that is very well narrated , it’s worth reading it just for the end

Awful narration

I couldn't listen to more than 2 hours of this - so it might be a fantastic book like much of Gemmell - because the narration was so terrible. He spoke fast in a weird whispery way. Please listen carefully to a sample before buying!!
