    Take two Northern barbarian princes and place them in 5th century BC Athens at the time when Darius of Persia is about to teach the pesky Athenians a lesson and you have yourself the makings of a good story. If you can write as well as Jack England can you have the makings of a terrifi...

    Never before have I found a novel that so brilliantly combines ancient history and the stories of Antiquity with a timeless modern-day tale of valor, interpersonal relationships, the fight of good against evil, and the primacy of the individual over the collective. Jack England not ...

    Sword of Marathon - Jack England ** Ancient history at its most entertaining ** Our two young Gothic heroes, Luke, a prince, and younger brother Hal, are ably supported (or thwarted, depending on your point of view) in their quest to secure vital trade routes, by a cast of equall...

    As "Mrs England", I'm probably biased, but I think the novel is fantastic. When I started reading it (after Mr England had finished), I thought it would be a book for the menfolk, but I really love the heroes. They come across as real young men and have a bond that sees them through so...

    Being a student of European history I found this work by Jack England fascinating. It reads so well and the reader would find it hard to put it down once it gets started. A well written story can unfold in the mind like a Hollywood movie as this one certainly does. The story blends ve...

    This book was a lot of fun. It's a tour through ancient history. What little I remember from school treated every ancient culture as separate from all the others. Sword of marathon has them all mixing and interacting and commenting on one another. It's a little violent for my del...

    The hero of this novel is an Englishman of great intelligence and beauty who settles in Greece. He begins telling his story in extreme old age, and, though aged, nearly has to kill someone in the first chapter. Much of the novel takes place in Athens. However, anyone who thinks the aut...

    I was looking to try something a bit different to my usual reading genre, so I thought I would give this book a try - by page 5, I was hooked! The story is a really great romp - following the fortunes of the leading characters, Luke and his younger brother Hal. Somewhat by accident,...

    Jack has written an imaginative, fantasy tale with some interesting theories relating to historical events as we understand them. The story is based on the historical background and enlivens the period pretty well One can forgive the warped timeline which puts Norsemen, Archaic and ...

    Obviously, as the author, I love this book. However, the really strange thing is this. As soon as I pressed the 'print' button and never needed to read it again, I actually now re-read it for enjoyment, along with all my other favourite authors, such J.R.R.Tolkien, Patrick O'Brian, Ber...

    As Jack England has asked me to help him market his book, I feel disobliged to write an extensive review. However, I can say that his love this novel and I'm really looking forward to reading its sequel. ...

    Sword of Marathon - Jack England ** Ancient history at its most entertaining ** Our two young Gothic heroes, Luke, a prince, and younger brother Hal, are ably supported (or thwarted, depending on your point of view) in their quest to secure vital trade routes, by a cast of equall...

    As "Mrs England", I'm probably biased, but I think the novel is fantastic. When I started reading it (after Mr England had finished), I thought it would be a book for the menfolk, but I really love the heroes. They come across as real young men and have a bond that sees them through so...

    Being a student of European history I found this work by Jack England fascinating. It reads so well and the reader would find it hard to put it down once it gets started. A well written story can unfold in the mind like a Hollywood movie as this one certainly does. The story blends ve...

    This book was a lot of fun. It's a tour through ancient history. What little I remember from school treated every ancient culture as separate from all the others. Sword of marathon has them all mixing and interacting and commenting on one another. It's a little violent for my del...

    I was looking to try something a bit different to my usual reading genre, so I thought I would give this book a try - by page 5, I was hooked! The story is a really great romp - following the fortunes of the leading characters, Luke and his younger brother Hal. Somewhat by accident,...

    As "Mrs England", I'm probably biased, but I think the novel is fantastic. When I started reading it (after Mr England had finished), I thought it would be a book for the menfolk, but I really love the heroes. They come across as real young men and have a bond that sees them through so...

    Being a student of European history I found this work by Jack England fascinating. It reads so well and the reader would find it hard to put it down once it gets started. A well written story can unfold in the mind like a Hollywood movie as this one certainly does. The story blends ve...

    This book was a lot of fun. It's a tour through ancient history. What little I remember from school treated every ancient culture as separate from all the others. Sword of marathon has them all mixing and interacting and commenting on one another. It's a little violent for my del...

    I was looking to try something a bit different to my usual reading genre, so I thought I would give this book a try - by page 5, I was hooked! The story is a really great romp - following the fortunes of the leading characters, Luke and his younger brother Hal. Somewhat by accident,...

    Jack has written an imaginative, fantasy tale with some interesting theories relating to historical events as we understand them. The story is based on the historical background and enlivens the period pretty well One can forgive the warped timeline which puts Norsemen, Archaic and ...

    Obviously, as the author, I love this book. However, the really strange thing is this. As soon as I pressed the 'print' button and never needed to read it again, I actually now re-read it for enjoyment, along with all my other favourite authors, such J.R.R.Tolkien, Patrick O'Brian, Ber...

    Being a student of European history I found this work by Jack England fascinating. It reads so well and the reader would find it hard to put it down once it gets started. A well written story can unfold in the mind like a Hollywood movie as this one certainly does. The story blends ve...

    This book was a lot of fun. It's a tour through ancient history. What little I remember from school treated every ancient culture as separate from all the others. Sword of marathon has them all mixing and interacting and commenting on one another. It's a little violent for my del...

    The hero of this novel is an Englishman of great intelligence and beauty who settles in Greece. He begins telling his story in extreme old age, and, though aged, nearly has to kill someone in the first chapter. Much of the novel takes place in Athens. However, anyone who thinks the aut...

    I was looking to try something a bit different to my usual reading genre, so I thought I would give this book a try - by page 5, I was hooked! The story is a really great romp - following the fortunes of the leading characters, Luke and his younger brother Hal. Somewhat by accident,...

    Jack has written an imaginative, fantasy tale with some interesting theories relating to historical events as we understand them. The story is based on the historical background and enlivens the period pretty well One can forgive the warped timeline which puts Norsemen, Archaic and ...

    Obviously, as the author, I love this book. However, the really strange thing is this. As soon as I pressed the 'print' button and never needed to read it again, I actually now re-read it for enjoyment, along with all my other favourite authors, such J.R.R.Tolkien, Patrick O'Brian, Ber...

    As Jack England has asked me to help him market his book, I feel disobliged to write an extensive review. However, I can say that his love this novel and I'm really looking forward to reading its sequel. ...

    Being a student of European history I found this work by Jack England fascinating. It reads so well and the reader would find it hard to put it down once it gets started. A well written story can unfold in the mind like a Hollywood movie as this one certainly does. The story blends ve...

    This book was a lot of fun. It's a tour through ancient history. What little I remember from school treated every ancient culture as separate from all the others. Sword of marathon has them all mixing and interacting and commenting on one another. It's a little violent for my del...

    The hero of this novel is an Englishman of great intelligence and beauty who settles in Greece. He begins telling his story in extreme old age, and, though aged, nearly has to kill someone in the first chapter. Much of the novel takes place in Athens. However, anyone who thinks the aut...

    I was looking to try something a bit different to my usual reading genre, so I thought I would give this book a try - by page 5, I was hooked! The story is a really great romp - following the fortunes of the leading characters, Luke and his younger brother Hal. Somewhat by accident,...

    Jack has written an imaginative, fantasy tale with some interesting theories relating to historical events as we understand them. The story is based on the historical background and enlivens the period pretty well One can forgive the warped timeline which puts Norsemen, Archaic and ...

    Obviously, as the author, I love this book. However, the really strange thing is this. As soon as I pressed the 'print' button and never needed to read it again, I actually now re-read it for enjoyment, along with all my other favourite authors, such J.R.R.Tolkien, Patrick O'Brian, Ber...

    As Jack England has asked me to help him market his book, I feel disobliged to write an extensive review. However, I can say that his love this novel and I'm really looking forward to reading its sequel. ...

    Take two Northern barbarian princes and place them in 5th century BC Athens at the time when Darius of Persia is about to teach the pesky Athenians a lesson and you have yourself the makings of a good story. If you can write as well as Jack England can you have the makings of a terrifi...

    Finished the book Wow. Cant' wait for the next one. Jack England....you are my new favorite author! MM ...

    The hero of this novel is an Englishman of great intelligence and beauty who settles in Greece. He begins telling his story in extreme old age, and, though aged, nearly has to kill someone in the first chapter. Much of the novel takes place in Athens. However, anyone who thinks the aut...

    Take two Northern barbarian princes and place them in 5th century BC Athens at the time when Darius of Persia is about to teach the pesky Athenians a lesson and you have yourself the makings of a good story. If you can write as well as Jack England can you have the makings of a terrifi...

    Never before have I found a novel that so brilliantly combines ancient history and the stories of Antiquity with a timeless modern-day tale of valor, interpersonal relationships, the fight of good against evil, and the primacy of the individual over the collective. Jack England not ...

    Sword of Marathon - Jack England ** Ancient history at its most entertaining ** Our two young Gothic heroes, Luke, a prince, and younger brother Hal, are ably supported (or thwarted, depending on your point of view) in their quest to secure vital trade routes, by a cast of equall...

    As "Mrs England", I'm probably biased, but I think the novel is fantastic. When I started reading it (after Mr England had finished), I thought it would be a book for the menfolk, but I really love the heroes. They come across as real young men and have a bond that sees them through so...

    I was looking to try something a bit different to my usual reading genre, so I thought I would give this book a try - by page 5, I was hooked! The story is a really great romp - following the fortunes of the leading characters, Luke and his younger brother Hal. Somewhat by accident,...

    Jack has written an imaginative, fantasy tale with some interesting theories relating to historical events as we understand them. The story is based on the historical background and enlivens the period pretty well One can forgive the warped timeline which puts Norsemen, Archaic and ...

    Obviously, as the author, I love this book. However, the really strange thing is this. As soon as I pressed the 'print' button and never needed to read it again, I actually now re-read it for enjoyment, along with all my other favourite authors, such J.R.R.Tolkien, Patrick O'Brian, Ber...

    As Jack England has asked me to help him market his book, I feel disobliged to write an extensive review. However, I can say that his love this novel and I'm really looking forward to reading its sequel. ...

    Fun story! ...
