In the Battle of Thermopylae of 480 BC, an alliance of Greek city-states fought the invading Persian army in the mountain pass of Thermopylae.

Xerxes waited many days for King Leonidas to surrender or withdraw. When the Greeks did not leave, Xerxes was left with no option and he moved forward. The battle lasted for about 3 days and after which all 300 Spartans were killed.

"She's dead, he tells himself for the thousandth time. She died in my arms. And when I touched her next, the last time I ever touched her, it wasn't her, not anymore - it was something cold, cold and empty. She cannot be alive... But isn't that her scent, at least a hint of it, riding the winter breeze? What is it, if not her, that wakes him in the darkest hours of morning with the taste of her sweat on his tongue; the warmth of her skin tingling his fingertips; her rustling, throaty chuckle still echoing through the halls of his lonely home?No. She lived the assassin's life, and paid the price. He heard her heart flutter and fail, felt the final shudder - and there was no doubt, no hope of doubt that she was gone. Gone forever. But soon, the distinction between reality and nightmare evaporates. How can he ignore what is happening? How can he deny it? It's her....her fingernails in the flesh of his back, her arms around him, her lips on his, wanting him, loving him, devouring him - just as it is her beating heart at the whirling center of her hellish attack. Dead or alive, she's back." -- Inside flap
