    1. Author s conception of the Battle of Marathon and what led up to it, through the eyes of a youth, Mandrocles of Samos, who had saved the life of Miltiades and called the Luck Bringer from then on by him After Mandrocles s father catches him in an indiscretion, while Miltiades is visiting, the father gives Mandrocles over to Miltiades to shape him up Then follows adventures life on shipboard amongst Miltiades s crew various battles life in Athens and introduction to its fleshpots then culminating [...]


    2. There are a number of signs that mark out a good book you get drawn into this alternative universe very easily you can t put the book down you can feel the emotions of the characters as though you are there you need to know you feel at a loss when the book ends Luck Bringer is one of those books.It is the story of that great and important moment in European, and hence the World s, history the build up of Greek resistance to the might of Persia which culminated in the battle of Marathon and the [...]


    3. Good historical fiction, this tale of a conflicted, less than inspired Greek hero general told from the perspective of a young family friend, and a classic battle that shaped the ancient world, is simply told and engaging.At times the language is too simple for my taste There are no literary flourishes, and there is little complex psychology, instead the author relies on straightforward narration and the intrinsically interesting nature of Greek history What this book does really well is hold yo [...]


    4. Brown is not only a talented author, but an expert in ancient Greek history He transports the reader to a world bracing itself for one of the most important battles in history the battle of Marathon From the Persian courts to the treacherous politics of Athens, the book follows Miltiades and Mandrocles as they inadvertently change the world.This is historical fiction at its best, as Brown shows an amazing, deep knowledge and understanding of the world and societies he describes More than that, h [...]


    5. The Battle of Marathon, told by a fictional young aide to General Miltiades The first person narration limits the nuance of the play, politics and battle tactics I gather the narrator grows up in subsequent volumes But I ll stick to Greek history next time.


    6. Am just loving Nick Brown s books at the moment Galloped through this first one and straight onto the sequal Its a story of a boy called Mandrocles who is whipped away from his family and sent off to sea as a soldier The story runs through several bloodthirsty battles and I found the descriptions of life on board ship were fascinating The author s style is consuming I often find this period of history hard to get a handle on as it s so different from our own but Brown really owns it He can see i [...]


    7. Written by a former teacher, and it shows Lots of technical terms, but only explained once, there is however a glossary at the back of the book.Very informative of the historical period yet a pleasure to read The action moves along quite quickly but there are also some excellent descriptive passages It gives me everything I want in novel entertainment, instruction, relaxation, and even excitement.Looking forward to the next instalment.


    8. Ancient Greece and the battle at Marathon Seemed very authentic as tho it really could have been that way Mandrocles, the Luck Bringer, is the main character surrounded by historical Greek figures.Have to go back and review my Ancient Greek history A good read for anyone that likes historical fiction.
