The Age of Heroes is dead.

Decades after the voyage of the fabled Argo, the last remaining Argonauts are scattered to the corners of the Greek world. The last vestiges of once-mighty kingdoms are crumbling or already lie in ruins and the enemy is nearly at the gates. The gods have abandoned Greece. The Sea People are coming...

If the Age of Heroes has truly passed, never to be reborn, then great men will fade and pass into legend. Only one man can channel the spirit of the Argonauts and inspire and renew the heroism of old... 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:

'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

An enchanting tale told by Orpheus of the days after Greek myth ends and the days of the Sea Peoples began. Of boys trying to find the hero or villain in themselves.

"Hades" is a captivating journey into the realm of mythology that I thoroughly enjoyed. The author skillfully weaves together mythological themes, history, and a compelling narrative in a way that keeps the reader utterly engaged.

What truly stands out in this book is the author's ability to introduce us to the rich tapestry of history and myth. The storytelling is not only informative but also incredibly immersive. The way the author brings these ancient tales to life is nothing short of remarkable.

The writing style is elegant and evocative, making it easy to become lost in the world of gods, heroes, and legendary creatures. It beautifully captures the essence of the myths and the awe-inspiring nature of the stories.

Overall, "Hades" is a book that seamlessly blends mythology, history, and captivating storytelling. I was entranced by the mythological themes, the way the author introduces us to history and myth, and the exquisite writing style. It's a must-read for anyone who appreciates the timeless allure of mythology.

Absolutely fantastic. I admit this is one of my favourite periods of history but it was a fantastic read. Historical detail spot on & characters meaningful. First class.
