"'Brutal, bloody and thoroughly gripping - Pressfield has an amazing grasp of the savage mind, and the precarious nature of civilization'" (Diana Gabaldon)
"'Pressfield writes with a quality and style akin to classical legend...a powerful elegy to a world that wasn't to be...a profound dialogue between civilization and "savagery"...A joy to read'" (John Whitbourn)
In or around 1250 BC, so Plutarch tells us, Theseus, king of Athens and slayer of the Minotaur, set sail on a journey that brought him to the land of 'tal Kyrte', the 'Free People', a nation of fiercely proud and passionate warrior women whom the Greeks called 'Amazons'. Bound to each other as lovers as well as fighters and owing allegiance to no man, the Amazons distrusted the Greeks with their boastful talk of cities and civilization. And when their illustrious war queen Antiope fell in love with Theseus and fled to Athens with the king and his followers, so denying her people, the Amazon tribes were outraged. Seeking revenge, they raised a vast army and marched on Athens. History tells us they could not win, but for a brief and glorious moment the Amazons held the Attic world in thrall before vanishing into the immortal realms of myth and legend.
Resounding to the sound of brutal, bloody battles fought hand-to-hand and peopled with wonderfully realised flesh and blood characters, LAST OF THE AMAZONS is Steven Pressfield's most thrilling - and thrillingly imagined - novel yet. A dazzling and profoundly moving tale of love and war, honour and revenge, here the ancient world is brought to brilliant life as we are told the extraordinary, inspiring yet near-forgotten story of the last of the Amazons...
