In this third episode of Katherine Roberts’ epic novel ‘I am the Great Horse’, you’ll discover how Alexander finds Achilles’ famous armour at Troy and leads his troops across the Hellespont to challenge the Persians, only to find himself fighting for his life against Greek mercenaries under the command of the wily General…
But Tiamat's lucky hand is in demand for more than the Twenty Squares Championships. It also gives her the power to open the magical gateways that lead between the great cities of the earth, and beyond the earth into the heavenly realm where dragons breed. When the Persians discover these gateways and trick Tiamat into helping their army enter the city, Babylon's days are numbered.
