    Wonderful Series

    Great read!
    Excellent series with strong story lines.
    I read one after the other and look forward to future work from Mr. Overton!

    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.

    The ending was a little abrupt but overall a great series. I'm and Overton fan now! Time to upload another of his series!

    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.

    Satisfying closure to the adventures of the Lion of Scythia.

    After the warfare & wanderings on the Scythian Plains our hero returns to the Macedonian army in Babylon and reconnects with the great Alexander and company. Although this movement causes a sea-change in the thrust of the previous two novels in the series, in that the military action is much reduced and is replaced by way more political in-fighting and intrigue; I felt that this change of direction would be a winner and I do believe this was the best of the trilogy.
    Characters were very well presented, especially the true historical ones. They came over as interesting and, more importantly, believable. The story whilst a little rushed at the end, does give the trilogy reasonable closure and I particularly enjoyed the historical postscript that gave a great scenario of the actual consequences for the real characters in the years that followed these events.
    Satisfying final part in the series. Well done Mr. Overton.

Writers Exchange is a Christian publishing house, although we do publish many, many other genres and not all our authors are Christian:)

We have been publishing and selling books since 2000, but in 2017 we decided to sell MOST of our books exclusively from Amazon. A number of our books are also available from other retailers. We have made it very easy for you to find our books from whichever retailer you prefer, either in the "buy" links on each book page, but also by the Menu Item "Our Books by Retailer" which will show you our books at Amazon, Apple, Barnes and Noble and Kobo.

So what is here, that is not available at Amazon and other distributors?
* "Universe" pages that go into a lot more detail about the various fictional universes some of our authors have created,
* Free Short Stories by our authors (which will also be on our blog)
* upcoming: author interviews - which will also be on our blog (where you can get new content/releases emailed directly to you!)
* and other fun things as we think of them :)

We hope you enjoy!
