There was once a man named Kineas, an Athenian cavalry commander who was dismissed from the army of Alexander and vengefully exiled by his own city. His mercenary force and their Scythian allies had defeated a mighty Macedonian army at the Ford of the River God and his adopted city of Olbia, where he had been appointed a hipparch, sort of a governor, was now free again.
 
But his destiny will not allow him to enjoy the fruits of victory for long. Far to the east, at the farthest edge of the Sea of Grass, Alexander is threatening to crush the Scythian hordes once and for all.
 
The Lady Srayanka of the Cruel Hands, the Scythian warrior-princess who spurned a king's love to be at Kineas's side, is pledged to take her tribe east to help stop 'the monster' - and Kineas knows he has no choice but to follow, even if it means embracing the violent death in battle that he has seen prefigured in countless dreams.
