The Bow of Heaven by Andrew Levkoff wins Gold from eLit Book Awards
The Other Alexander, book one of The Bow of Heaven series of life in ancient Rome has won the 2011 Gold Award for Historical Fiction from eLit Book Awards
The Other Alexander is the first book in the epic trilogy, The Bow of Heaven. Alexander, a young Greek philosophy student, wrenched from a life unlived, must submit to the will of an empire. In a world without choice, he uses his cunning and wits to gain the trust of one of the most powerful men in the Republic.
Yet no matter how high he climbs, or how deeply he falls in love, Alexander's life is still bound to the will of another. When his master becomes blinded by revenge, the fates of both owner and owned become slaves to a terrible choice. A choice which will topple the empire one has ruled, and the other has been forced to serve.
