An epic novel from the master of historical fiction, author of ALEXANDER: GOD OF WAR 'Brilliantly evoked' Sunday TimesArimnestos of Plataea is a man who has seen and done things that most men only dream about. Sold into slavery as a boy, he fought his way to freedom - and then to everlasting fame: standing alongside the Athenians at the Battle of Marathon where the Greeks crushed the invading Persians. Sometimes, however, a man's greatest triumph is followed by his greatest sorrow. Returning to his farm, Arimnestos finds that his wife Euphoria has died in childbirth, and in an instant his laurels turn to dust. But the gods are not finished with Arimnestos yet. With nothing left to live for, he throws himself from a cliff into the sea, only to be pulled by strong arms from death's embrace. When he awakes, he finds himself chained to an oar in a Phoenician trireme.And so begins an epic journey that will take Arimnestos and a motley crew of fellow galley slaves to the limits of their courage, and beyond the edge of the known world, in a quest for freedom, revenge - and a cargo so precious it's worth dying for.


After Marathon, Arimnestos goes out of his mind in grief over the loss of wife and child and thus begins a journey of extreme pain and degradation. His struggle to survive the torments and the subsequent saga of returning home makes for an entertaining tale as the author fills in the historical gap between Marathon and Xerxes' invasion at Thermopylae. Meticulous research and well rounded characters are once again hallmarks of this author; it's like reading Patrick O'Brian, only for ancient mariners. The seafaring portions are detailed; the navigation of those days is just plain scary and that my friends is what this book is, a scary and exciting story of survival and revenge. Arimnestos, in the end is once again becoming a killer of men. 4.3 stars...bring it on, Xerxes :-)
When I read the 1st book in this series, Killer of Men, I was impressed. It was one of the best historical fiction books I have ever read. Then I read the 2nd book, Marathon, and was even more impressed. Usually, after a couple of books, the writer kind of tests on his laurels, and phones in any subsequent books. Not so with Poseidon's Spear. Everything about this book- the action, the character development, the plot, was fantastic. Mr. Cameron has earned a fan, here. And I eagerly anticipate his next masterpiece.

This was a great book. It should however had a map on the web site.

I am very puzzled about the sea route to the I.O.W.
The ships appear to end up in the channel islands before going north to the I.O.W.
They landed on the north coast of Spain , OK so far so good , then sailed north and missing Britteny.( Not easy missing Brittany )
Coming back they sailed from the I.O.W to Le-have and down the Seine. This again is funny route.
The short land route to the med is , sail to Bordeaux over land west across Aquitaine to Marseille.
The route nowdays is Barge :- Bordeaux - Toulouse -Canel Du Midi - Naroner into the med
I've read quite a few novels of the Greco/ Persian wars and this series ranks among the top, if not the best one I have read. The author includes the politics of the times, the divide in the Greek world about whether they should even fight against the Persians and other minutiae that was happening and if ignored could bring Greek civilization down without the Persians doing it. Even though the author included all these different things that were going on, he didn't get mired down in it as some authors do and let events ruin the book to the point, or at least I do, of getting bored and frutrated, putting the book down and not picking it back up.
Looking forward to reading this authors take on Thermopylae and Salamis. Excellent read!

Christian (Myles) Cameron continues the saga of Arimnestos the Plateaen, post Marathon, with a trip to the west, even to Britain. The more he writes of Arimnestos, the more of a real person he becomes as Cameron's writing continues to improve (not that it was 'bad' in the first place!)
A 'filler' to take up to the time it took the Great King of Persia to mount his attack of Greece, it is a wonderful journey to the western Med and north out of the Gates of Hercules in pursuit of tin.
The scene that stayed with me was when the main protagionist was press ganged as a galley slave...I could almost smell the foetid air,and feel the filth swirl around my feet..a rollicking yarn that agreeably whiles away the time so much so that you are swept up into the narrative....I enjoyed it...although somehow the concept of a bibulous,garrulous old man recounting heroic deeds did not seem to sit...I would have imagined the hero would have been a grim,silent character rather than a raffish racounteur in his old age
Good and entertaining continuation of the series. This book tells of Arimnestos' story this time as a sea captain sailing the high seas :-)
Well researched and with good historical details it really opens your eyes to the rich culture and civilization of the time and also the incredible trade routes/networks existing back then.
A very enjoyable read!
I really enjoy Cameron's historical novels. He bases his stories on Herodotus and others, but creates a plausible web of adventure around the source material. He is an enthusiaster historical re-creator, and makes the battles come alive because he understands the details.
