I originally reviewed this for the Historical Novel ReviewIt is 322 BC and the Macedonian Empire is reeling in the wake of Alexander s death Civil war looms as his generals and heirs position themselves to replace their God King or tear off a piece of the empire for themselvesAndrikos a young fatherless man faces troubles of his own He is lured into the seedy underworld of his Ionian hometown and in his first foray into criminal life he finds himself in far deeper waters than he ever expected Worse his family is at risk because of his actions His only recourse is to join the army leaving one set of dangers for the larger ones rocking the empireAfter weeks of brutal training and even worse self recrimination he catches the eye of an agent who is part of a secret brotherhood dedicated to the preservation of Alexander s heirs and legacy Though he is reluctant to leave his new mates Andrikos is soon immersed in a clandestine world secretive than the criminal world he fled and far deadly than the life as a phalangite offers And this time his own contribution could affect the fate of the empire itselfIn this debut novel Kachel brings the reader on a gritty and powerful foray into Macedon s conuered realm It is thoroughly researched and it has the undeniable authenticity of a soldier Kachel writing of a soldier s life Andrikos makes for a very sympathetic character as a young man overwhelmed by his circumstances but eager to rise to the challenge Recommended but with a content warning graphic violence torture and sexual content The formatting and cover were well done and the scattered typos did little to kick this reviewer out of the story

I was sent a message by the author asking if I would be willing to review his work based on my interest in Historical fiction specifically based on the Conn Iggulden Empire Series I was told that if I liked this series I would thoroughly enjoy Mr Kachel s book as wellPer his promise I was not disappointed in the story whatsoever While this was not an action packed suspense thriller the characters are built so well that you actually began to think of them as friends of your own There is a lot of politics and intrigued that pulled me into the time period and made me feel like I was there along the journeyI hope there are others in this series because the end left me believe that there would be In my opinion this is a very similar story told in post Alexander era of the maturation of a young man from boyhood to manhood and his journey throughout the process Things like family become important and childlike devices become things of the pastI have 3 things that I did not care for about this book1 Character names When looking at new authorsstories I always read the back or front flap to see whowhat the book is about Typically if I cannot pronounce the name of the lead character I put the book back on the shelf I have passed over many books that received great reviews because I knew that I did not know how to pronounce the name I know this might seem trivial but I would suggest to any author working on novels from different eras to put the pronunciations of all characters in either the front or the back of the book In this particular piece I dubbed Andrikos friend Pat because I could not pronounce his nameand stopped trying to do so2 The language and verbiage used was too modern for this period piece specifically when the officers were berating the recruits As I am sure Mr Kachel went through this process with the US Military and curse words and other forms of degrading terms were used these are not the same phrases used before the common era 3 When reading through the book some passageschapters seemed to be written at different times as the flow and word choices were completely different According to Mr Kachel s bio this book took a few years to finish and unfortunately parts of the story felt piece mailed together Would I recommend this to a friend absolutely I will also consider any further works that Mr Kachel writes as a viable read
