Sicily, AD 405: the infinite duel between a man and a superpower begins. The man is Dionysius, who has just made himself Tyrant of Syracuse. The superpower is Carthage, a mercantile megalopolis and mistress of the seas.

Over the next eight years, Dionysius' brutal military conquests will strike down countless enemies and many friends to make Syracuse the most powerful Greek city west of mainland Greece. He builds the largest army of antiquity and invents horrific war machines to use against the Carthaginians, whom he will fight in five wars.

But who was Dionysius? Historians have condemned him as one of the most ruthless, egocentric despots. But he was also a patron of the arts, a dramatist, poet, and a tender lover. Download and start listening now!

    " This one made me want to read more from Manfredi. "The measure of a man is what he does with power" - Plato. That quote fits this book perfectly and that's what it shows exactly. Oh my goodness, the battles, the strategy... everything. I loved this book. "

    " Not as gripping a narrative as the Alexander series but the author has lived up to the delivery of historic tale beautifully yet again. "

    " Puedo contar con los dedos de una mano los libros que he dejado en una esquina sin terminar; éste es uno de ellos. Facilón, mal escrito, mal ambientado... Supongo que la palabra clave es "malo".

    " Una novela historica sobre el mundo grigo en el mediterraneo. Una forma de ver porque grecia nunca llego a ser un imperio como el romano, a exepción de la epoca de Alejandro. "
