T. S. Chaudhry in his new book, “Queen Of Sparta book coverThe Queen Of Sparta” Book One in the Sparta series published by Top Hat Books gives us a novel of Ancient Greece.

From the back cover:   Xerxes, the Great King of Persia invades Greece in 480 B.C. at the head of a massive army. Three hundred Spartans and King Leonidas die heroically blocking the Persian advance at the pass of Thermopylae. The Persians are poised to conquer all of Greece. The only one standing in their way is a woman – Gorgo, Queen of Sparta.

Though history has relegated her role to that of a bystander, what if she played a central role in the Greek resistance to the Persian invasion. What if she kept her true role a secret in order to play it more effectively? What if she was hiding other secrets too – dark secrets of murder and vengeance? What if the only person who truly appreciated her genius was an enemy prisoner whom she has vowed to kill? What if after their victory, the Greeks started to turn on each other? What if, eventually, Gorgo had to choose between the security of Sparta and safety of her son? And what if the only one who could find a way out is the same prisoner who had once fought against the Spartans?

I am a big fan of history but I have to admit that I was totally unaware of the events that take place in this book. Having said that let me state that this book is fascinating. Queen Gorgo is a highly intriguing character that captures your attention and does not let go.  The battle scenes are so realistic that you feel that you are actually there. Mr. Chaudhry has given us exciting story of political intrigue, espionage, power and war. Additionally he has provided us a story about the society of Sparta which I knew nothing about. “The Queen Of Sparta” is an engrossing read that will keep you flipping pages as fast as you can read. I am glad I found this talented author and am so looking forward to the next book in this series.
