SHADOW OF THE LION – BOOKS I AND II TITLES ANNOUNCED!
With the fan base of Alexander the Great themed historical book, SHADOW OF THE LION, counting among its numbers the Consul General of Greece in Vancouver, Ilias Kremmydas, best selling author Steven Pressfield (‘The Legend of Bagger Vance’ and ‘Gates of Fire’) and fellow historical novelists, Scott Oden (‘Men of Bronze’) and John Dempsey (‘Ariadne’s Brother’), all eager to read the work by W. Ruth Kozak, MEDIAARIA CDM are pleased to announced that SHADOW OF THE LION is timetabled to be published in two parts.
Extensively researched in Greece with the support of Classical scholars, the Greek Ministry of Culture, the Society of Macedonian Studies (Thessaloniki), the Finnish Institute in Athens, the Norwegian Institute of Athens and with research undertaken in the Gennadius Library and the British Library, SHADOW OF THE LION will comprise of Book I, titled ‘Blood on the Moon’ and Book II, titled ‘The Fields of Hades’. Mutually agreed by both the author and publisher, it was felt that both these titles possess the quality of conveying (in the words of W. Ruth Kozak) “strong foreshadowing that will draw people into the story.”
Set in the aftermath of the death of Alexander the Great in 323 BC, and against the backdrop of political intrigue, ruthless ambition, racial prejudice, child abuse and exploitation, SHADOW OF THE LION follows the journey of the newly appointed joint-kings, Alexander’s half-brother Philip Arridaios and his infant son, Iskander (Alexander IV) through Asia Minor to Macedon, until the year 310 BC when tragedy marks the end of Alexander’s dynasty.
