Scythian Trilogy Book 2: The Golden King

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.

The chief of the tribe is dead, killed by his son's treachery; and the priestess, the lover of the young cavalry officer, Nikometros, is carried off into the mountains. Nikometros and his friends set off in pursuit. 

Death rides with them and by the time they return, the tribes are at war. Nikometros is faced with the choice of attempting to become chief himself or leaving the people he has come to love and respect, returning to his duty as an army officer in the Empire of Alexander.

    A great story

    Worth the read, however to get the full picture you should read the first book, lion of Scythia.
    Looking forward to the next book.

    Max Overton: Genius!

    Anyone who loved the Scarab series will also enjoy this trilogy. Max Overton is a genius - waited for the sixth Scarab book impatiently and was delighted to the Scythian Trilogy to add to my library.

    Well written and informative

    Background based on fact. Brings out the influence that Alexander the Great had on the known world, Also how even more than 2 centuries ago the racial mix was probably as much as it is today.
