Scythian Trilogy Book 3: Funeral in Babylon

Score: 4.67 (votes: 6)

Captured by the warlike, tribal Scythians who bicker amongst themselves and bitterly resent outside interference, a fiercely loyal captain in Alexander the Great's Companion Cavalry Nikometros and his men are to be sacrificed to the Mother Goddess. Lucky chance--and the timely intervention of Tomyra, priestess and daughter of the Massegetae chieftain--allows him to defeat the Champion. With their immediate survival secured, acceptance into the tribe…and escape…is complicated by the captain's growing feelings for Tomyra--death to any who touch her--and the chief's son Areipithes who not only detests Nikometros and wants to have him killed or banished but intends to murder his own father and take over the tribe.

Alexander the Great has returned from India and set up his court in Babylon. Nikometros and a band of loyal Scythians journey deep into the heart of Persia to join the Royal court. Nikometros finds himself embroiled in the intrigues and wars of kings, generals, and merchant adventurers as he strives to provide a safe haven for his lover and friends. The fate of an Empire hangs in the balance, and Death walks beside Nikometros as events precipitate a Funeral in Babylon.

    Good story

    I enjoyed this trilogy. It moved along at a steady pace and was exciting and intriguing. I recommend it along with the Kings of Egypt books, 1-6.

    love the history, love the story.

    What a great way to learn about history.
    I have never known much about Alexandra the great until I read these books on him.
    Not written as a biography but as a story woven thru time and history.
    To get the most from the book you should read from the beginning of the series.

    I have become a great fan of Mr Overton's works. His ability to take one to another time in history enthralls me and I loved this series as much as his other books. There is something unique about Mr Overton's style that constantly surprises the reader. I find his stories unpredictable, even when the element of historical fact may be known, who knows what is to become of his characters. I hope he continues to write as I am a ready and willing reader, and judging by Mr Overton's reviews, I am not the only one.
