Written with her usual vigor and imagination...Mary Renault has a great talent. "The New York Times Book Review " Alexander s beauty, strength, and defiance were apparent from birth, but his boyhood honed those gifts into the makings of a king. His mother, Olympias, and his father, King Philip of Macedon, fought each other for their son s loyalty, teaching Alexander politics and vengeance from the cradle. His love for the youth Hephaistion taught him trust, while Aristotle s tutoring provoked his mind and Homer s "Iliad" fueled his aspirations. Killing his first man in battle at the age of twelve, he became regent at sixteen and commander of Macedon s cavalry at eighteen, so that by the time his father was murdered, Alexander s skills had grown to match his fiery ambition."
