The Story of the Real Prince of Persia

by Alexander Jovy

A stunning novel that brings to life the enthralling world of Cyrus the Great, the founder of Ancient Persia

  • An intense novel of action, passion, tragedy and inspiration.
  • Historically fascinating: Cyrus’s Persia was ahead of its time, cultured and exemplified by religious tolerance, yet he was a ruthless conqueror and leader.
  • Superbly written with wonderful pace and a detailed sense of place and time.

I am Cyrus is a powerful, intensely vivid and beautifully-written novel which dramatises the life, conquests and passions of Cyrus the Great, the heroic leader of the world’s first great empire: the Persian Empire.

Cyrus was a magnificent leader whose passion won the hearts of his subjects and of two extraordinary women – the beautiful warrior Roshan and the exquisite Cassadane. Cyrus’s vision, extraordinarily ahead of its time, of a society of religious tolerance inspired the foundation of his fabulous empire, yet he was ruthless in his conquests, including Ancient Lydia and the fabled city of Babylon – the richest city in the world.
