Protector

The Sunday Times bestseller that 'Bring[s] the Greco-Persian Wars to life in brilliant detail. Thrilling' DAILY EXPRESS




Discover the rise and fall of the world's greatest empire in the stunning second novel in the Athenian series, from the nation's finest historical novelist

A Persian king stands in the ruins of Athens
A Spartan king lies dead at Thermopylae
Xerxes has come

In their home waters, Athenians will face a vast fleet. On sacred land, a Persian host waits for them to move.

Outnumbered, outmatched, the Greeks must stand side by side to have any hope at all. For the Spartans, it is a chance to show who they truly are. For the Athenians, it is about surviving the storm.

Once more, Themistocles, battle-scarred and disgraced, must risk his honour and his life - to protect the people he loves.
