Child of a Dream Summary

Child of a Dream by Valerio Massimo Manfredi

'And you, Alexander, sleepless in the dead of night:
Where do your eyes roam?
Where does your heart wander?
Yours is a quest for far off lands
Where the constellations set,
Where the last waves of an ocean die.'

A huge international bestseller, this is the first in Valerio Massimo Manfredi's outstanding trilogy of brutal passion and grand adventure in ancient Greece.

Who could have been born to conquer the world other than a god? A boy, born to a great king - Philip of Macedon - and his sensuous queen, Olympias. Shaped by the disciplines and passions of his parents' court, Alexander became a young man of immense, unfathomable potential. Under the tutelage of the famed Aristotle, and with the friendship of Ptolemy and revered tactician Hephaiston, he became the mightiest and most charismatic warrior, capable of subjugating the known world to his power.

Alexander: Child of a Dream is the magnificent story of one of history's greatest characters and his quest to conquer the civilized world.
