Summary

211 BCE.

The most powerful empires in the world brawl over the spoils of a declawed Greece.

Philopoemen has a vision to end the chaos and anarchy that consumes his homeland - to stop the endless wars and preserve the world he loves. He must resist the urge of the oligarchs to surrender to their oppressors and raise an army to defend his countrymen from the all-conquering powers of Sparta, Macedon and Rome.

It is the last roll of the dice for the Achean League. The moment Philopoemen has been training for his whole life.

The new Achilles is poised to restore the glory of the former empire. To herald a new era.

To become the last great hero of Greece.

better than the original

I liked "new Achilles ", but the sequel is superior to original book in every sense. the best of historical action genre up to now, even better than the "killer of men" by the same author

Phenomenal

I love how this book follows the timeline of Greek history. Although some characters are fictional, Christian Cameron was able to put a lot of the historic events into this book with a twist of fiction based storylines to culminate it into a story of a heroism and friendship. A must read for those who love Greek history and tales of a legendary Greek man Philopoemen.
