Win, read and review Protector by Conn Iggulden

Love historical fiction? read the master!

We have sets of books 1 and 2 in Conn Iggulden’s brand new Athenian series for reading groups to read and review – escape to Ancient Greece this summer!


THE LATEST ANCIENT EPIC IN THE NEW ATHENIAN SERIES FROM THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF EMPEROR AND WAR OF THE ROSES

Themistocles stands as the battle-scarred leader of Athens. Yet he is no nobleman, and is distrusted by many.

But those who stand against him cannot argue with two things: his victories as a warrior, and the vast Persian army heading their way . . .

And so Themistocles must fight.

Fight the invaders. Fight the allies who despise him. Fight for his city.

As the Persians draw close, he must prove himself again and again in battle.

Because history belongs to the courageous . .

And we also love it when you buy yourself or someone else a brand new book from a high street bookshop. We also know that buying online is quick and convenient...
