Alexander's epic quest continues into the heart of Asia and on towards the mystery of India. The Macedonian army marches ever onward in search of glory, crushing resistance at every turn. The culture and beauty of Babylon is quickly ravaged, and the Palace of Persepolis burnt to ashes and cinders. An empire is destroyed and a new and bloody era begins.
But there are other things on Alexander's mind. An ambitious project to unite the peoples of the empire in one homeland begins to obsess him. There are rebellions and bloodshed, but the curious beauty of Queen Roxanna gives Alexander the strength to fulfil his destiny.
Compelling, exciting, and romantic, this is the breathtaking conclusion to the best-selling Alexander trilogy.
