Alexander is born into a world at war; Greece in turmoil, echoing the turmoil of his early years at Pella, the capital of his father's kingdom where his parents constantly war among themselves. He makes his first kill at the age of twelve, and tames the untamable stallion Bucephalas in the same year. He grows through boyhood, tutored by Aristotle at his private Academy with the sons of Macedonian nobles. The friends he makes there will stay with him all his life, and the special one, Hephaestion, will remain with him through life and death and into legend. At twenty, by the treachery of others, he inherits the throne, and so begins his journey into immortality. Here we go with him as he prepares to conquer a world without horizons.
