The Peloponnesian War has begun. An army of merciless
Spartan invaders have arrived at the gates of Plataea, bent on obliterating the
city and its inhabitants. Plataea’s oldest allies, the Athenians, are spread
too thin in their own campaigns to send help. Cut off and alone, the Plataeans
dig in behind their high walls for the coming siege, while the ruthless
Spartans gather outside.
On a rugged mountain road, a young Plataean warrior named
Nikias rides to Athens on an urgent quest. He carries with him a bag of
ill-gotten gold, hoping to raise an army of mercenaries to help defend his city
from the coming Spartan assault. But in the sprawling stronghold of Athens,
Nikias encounters perils that prove to be more dangerous than those he has
faced on the battlefield.
