Alexander: Child of a Dream by Valerio Manfredi

Alexander: Child of a Dream

Valerio Manfredi

Mythology, mortals and gods mingle in this novel that documents the early years of Alexander the Great. The first volume of a trilogy - predictable, the stuff that heroes are made of!

Extract

The models presented to him were those of heroism, of resistance to pain, of honour and respect for one's word, of sacrifice to the point of offering one's life. And he followed these models day after day, not out of the diligence of the disciples, but out of his own natural inclination.
