The Golden Mean
The Golden Mean | Annabel Lyon
4 posts | 2 read | 8 to read
Macedon. 367 BC. Philip II is bringing war to Persia. Forged in the warrior culture of Macedonia, the time has come for his young son Alexander to take up his inheritance of blood and obedience to the sword. It is a training that has made the boy sadistic; fiercely brilliant, but unstable. A dangerous trait in a king fated to rule the vastest empire of the ancient world. Compelled to teach this startling, precocious, sometimes horrifying child, Aristotle soon realises that what the boy needs most to learn - thrown before his time onto his father's battlefields - is the lesson of the golden mean, the elusive balance between extremes that Aristotle hopes will mitigate the boy's will to conquer in this age of fighting heroes...

Congratulations @Booksandcooks 🎉 I prefer to read printed books, but I want to get into audiobooks! (P.S. I normally don't like books being used to make this sort of thing, but a woman I work with made this one and she's so proud of it)! #6666giveaway

Before he grew up to be Alexander the Great and #ruletheworld, Alexander of Macedonia was placed under the tutelage of Aristotle. Fantastic historical fiction. This reminds me that I need to get my hands on the sequel.

Cinfhen Sounds fascinating! I'm stacking for me & hubby 💕 3y
TheKidUpstairs @Cinfhen it really was! The second one is about Aristotle's daughter Pythias and it's supposed to be just as good. 3y
