A Soldier's Duty, my historical novel has been moved to:
This is the story of a man who seems all but forgotten to history. Relegated to the land of myth and fable, possibly on purpose by some of Alexander's greatest chroniclers, Alexander's great Chilliarch and second self, Hephaistion son of Amyantor, is reborn with this telling. In his thirty-four years, he rose in rank to be second in command of Alexander's empire. Raised together from boyhood, educated by Aristotle they studied war, campaign, and conquest at the feet of the greatest military leader of their day, Alexander's father, Philip II of Macedon. As Alexander's power and prowess grew his emotional dependence upon Hephaistion became ever more apparent. Honored and mistaken as Alexander himself, by the Persian Queen Mother, Hephaistion appointed kings, saved cities from ruin through brilliant diplomatic maneuvering, and carried on a lasting correspondence with Aristotle, which may have been the basis for some of his greatest work. Unfortunately, these great skills were not so welcome among Alexander's other ruthless, exceptional generals. Called upon time and again to prove a worth that Alexander recognized and honored so clearly, Hephaistion fought against his own fellows for an acceptance that seemed destined to be forever withheld.
