Description of the story "Heart of The Spartan - The Dark Flower"

Fifteen years after Leonidas' heroic defence of the pass of Thermopylae, Sparta continued to ensure the purity of their blood by casting imperfect babies from the cliffs of Mount Taygetus, and by sending out naked youths armed with daggers, the dreaded Krypteia, to terrorise the native Helot slaves, murdering any potential threats at the dead of night.
In 465 BCE a Spartan youth on the verge of graduation from the Agoge, history’s most brutal military academy, is subverted by competing political intrigues and caught in a triangle of lust, love and jealousy from which death or rebellion can be the only escape.
This is book one in the series, Spartan Eclipse.
