Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“I loved this book. The writing is as tight as a phalanx, the action as bloody and satisfying as a well-cooked steak, and the characters are beautifully drawn and utterly convincing. Noble Smith brings the gory political struggles of fifth-century Greece vividly to life in a way that I haven’t seen since the novels of Mary Renault. A superb historical novel by a master storyteller.” Angus Donald, author of Warlord
“Crammed with twists and turns, Spartans at the Gates is a high-adrenaline tale of battle and intrigue, honor and treachery, that once underway never lets up its pace. Throughout the novel Smith’s passion for his subject shines through, and the struggles against the odds of his young heroes, Nikias and Kolax, are told with verve and a keen eye for the detail of life in ancient Greece.” James Aitcheson, author of Sworn Sword
