Lion at Sea is a novel of a bronze-age mystery and a man's search for himself. Sanati, a pampered son of the richest trading house in ancient Crete, finds his world is shattered. His mother disappears. The sadistic King Madati, the Minos of Crete, has absolute power and wants Sanati's trading house. Sanati is forced to seek his mother, find ways to circumvent the king's power, face the greed of his malevolent wife, fight an ancient prophesy that foretells his destruction, endure a trading voyage-while crew and captain hate him-to Britain and Norway, and survive the greatest natural disaster of the ancient world.
Can Sanati deal with these huge currents that threaten to overwhelm him? This is a tale of love and adventure set in the most fascinating culture of the ancient world. Author Les Cole again blends meticulous research with rich imagination in the second novel of the series on Bronze Age Cretan and Greek civilizations.
