Quotes

<b>PRAISE FOR MARK KNOWLES</b>: <br />
'A bold and thrilling voyage that plunges you deep into the world of ancient myth with every stroke of Jason’s oar. Knowles's storytelling captured my imagination from the very first page. It is wonderfully atmospheric' Daisy Dunn. <br />
'What a spectacular triumph! Knowles has taken a reassuringly familiar legend and elevated it into a new, realistic and engrossing story. This glorious hero quest is packed with intrigue, adventure, mystery, and beautifully written skirmishes, raising the stakes higher and higher as the crew venture into darker and more treacherous lands' Sam Taw, on Argo. <br />
'A deeply researched historical epic, so brilliantly brought to life I could taste the salt air on my tongue... Epic battles, well rounded characters sailing through a brilliantly described world' Adam Lofthouse, author of The Centurion's Son, on Argo. <br />
'(Knowles) has teamed his love of learning classics and childhood love of sword-and-sandals epics to accomplish something remarkable' Boarding Schools' Association. <br />
'Knowles has combined historical realities with sure-footed imagination... Brilliant'

Dr Paul Millett, Cambridge University
