      A must read!This was wonderful as a stand alone novel, but brought this small slice of history to life beautifully. Highly recommended!

      Sooo boring. To be fair I did not finish this book. Made it a little more than halfway then I just couldn't do it anymore. Not enough dialogue.

      ***This book was reviewed for the San Francisco Book Review****Eiland's Sword of Telemon is the first in the four book Orfeo Saga. The story opens with Orfeo struggling to fit in upon returning to his family/tribe after having spent several years as a hostage in the city of Pylos. Shortly after the story opens, Orfeo’s brother Herron is taken as a slave by raiders. Kiros, father of Orfeo and Herron, and King of the Achians (Achaeans), gathers the tribe at Delphi so that a plan of rescue may be [...]

      The world of ancient Greece, long before what has been classified as the Classical Era, was a complex world of tribal wars and unsettled peace.

Sent out to rescue his captured older brother, Herron, the heir, Orfeo, once a slave himself, projects himself to great heights, maturing as an accomplished warrior, diplomat, learned scholar and entertainer. The adventures of [...]

      I ended up reading this one a little backwards as I had read book 2 first (without realizing it) and loved it so much I ended up buying all of them. It was fun to go backwards with The Sword of Telemon and get some insight on some of the characters such as Orfeo, Zurga and Clarice. This is a faced and entirely intriguing adventure that is exceptionally written and has top notch character development. Each character brings their own style and characteristics to an already entertaining story. I lo [...]

      "The Sword of Telemon" is a fantastic piece of historical fiction. I know very little about the region and the time period the author was writing about so it was wonderfully educational to me as well. The book is very exciting and beautifully described. The plot is very well paced and does not drag on or misdirect the reader with unbelievable plot twists. Eiland could teach a master class on character development. Every single character is believable and uses dialogue that does not seem forced o [...]

      The main character in The Sword of Telemon, is called Orfeo. He is written clearly and so finely drawn that it is easy to care about him and what happens to his life. I enjoyed the visit to another time in history. The story is informative as well as entertaining.
