Description

<p><b>An action-filled retelling of the famous Greek myth, Jason and the Golden Fleece, brilliantly reimagined by Cambridge classicist, Mark Knowles.</b></p><h2>He has come to take what is yours.</h2><p><b>Kingdom of Iolkos, Thessaly. 1250 BC</b></p><p>When the kingdom of Iolkos is attacked one stormy night, Jason, son of King Aeson, is smuggled from the palace, still swaddled in his blankets.</p><p>Twenty years later, a vagrant descends from the mountains. King Pelias has been warned of the one-sandaled man who would one day supplant him, but he did not reckon on Aeson's son and rightful heir.</p><p>Claiming his birth-right during a tense showdown in front of the cream of Hellenic warriors and athletes, Jason accepts Pelias' impossible challenge: to steal a mythical Golden Fleece from the distant kingdom of Colchis. Jason's life, and the fate of his parents, depends on the success of this quest.</p><p>Jason assembles a team of great heroes for his crew aboard the Argo, but danger and monsters lurk around every bend. Soon it appears everything is conspiring against Jason, even those who claim to help him have their own motives. But he must carry on, overcome the brutal challenges hurled his way and survive against impossible odds...</p><p><b>Jason's mission to steal the Golden Fleece from the ends of the earth is a story of revenge, coming-of-age, the exploration of new and hostile lands.</b></p><p>Praise for Mark Knowles:</p><p>'Knowles has combined historical realities with sure-footed imagination to produce a brilliant evocation of living in the sprawling preindustrial city that was imperial Rome' Dr Paul Millett, senior lecturer, University of Cambridge</p>
