Historical fiction can bring out my inner Goldilocks One novel will be too dry and factual The next too florid and embellished One too predictable the next unrecognizably altered One sacrifices history for fiction another fiction for history And then ahhh along comes a novel that gets it all just right Sons of Zeus is better than the perfect chair tastier than the most temperate porridge Although really it is pretty hot porridge there is some seriously excellent historical fiction going on hereThe novel starts off at a gallop with a great opening passage and the action just rolls from there Set in 431 BC Greece it recreates the early rumblings of the Peloponnesian War through the experiences of brave and spirited Nikias son of the slain warrior Aristo and grandson of Menesarkus The Bull a gritty Olympic pankrator or sport fighter Nikias lives with his grandparents mother and sister on their farm in the city state Plataea As his eighteenth birthday approaches he trains with his grandfather for the pankration and pursues the love of Kallisto daughter of a neighboring magistrate Meanwhile a growing threat from Sparta causes discord among Plataea s leaders as they debate the soundness of their allegiances should they bow down to Sparta s pressure and form an alliance with the fierce city state bent on conuering Athens Or should they honor their treaty with the distant Athens trusting Athens to defend them against Spartan aggression When a Plataean traitor takes matters into his own hands all hell breaks loose and Nikias and his compatriots must fight for their lives and for control of their city Smith strikes the perfect balance between historical and fiction The story is thrilling and very immediate you ll experience the sights sounds and yes even smells of Greek battle with all the details needed to give you a sense of being right in the thick of things The action never uite stops and the flow and pacing are perfect No anachronistic hiccups that jar you out of the story And while you re caught up in the thrill ride surprise you are also soaking up an incredible range of ancient Greek culture from politics to popular culture sexuality to social order And of course warfare Smith provides enough information to give you a wonderfully authentic sense of the place the people and this particular episode in history but never do period details overpower or detract from the unrelenting action and finely crafted plot If you ve read Smith s prior book The Wisdom of the Shire A Short Guide to a Long and Happy Life then you too might notice the sharp contrast in tone between the two books The Shire is a gentle warmhearted guide to living life with all of the earnestness and joy of a Hobbit Zeus is an action packed historically acute blood bath be warned those of faint heart I did a few double takes at the outset of Zeus mulled over the contrast then realized with admiration and a good chuckle that Smith must pursue his subject matter as a Hobbit pursues a particularly savory chunk of cheese thoroughly and with great gusto The topic is an ancient Greek battle Then by golly the reader will enjoy the fiercest bloodiest lustiest of wars and Smith is not going to shortchange you on the juicy bits To that I say bravo Sons of Zeus has all of the elements of a great epic historical war intrigue deception friendship love heroism duty honor As I read the story played out in my mind in cinematic scale and I would love to see it on the screen In the meantime I will wait with bated breath for the next installment in this winning series
