When young Telemachus gets the chance to join the crew of the merchant ship Selene, he's delighted to escape the rough streets of Piraeus. He knows little of the dangers of life at sea. And even past hardship has not prepared him for the terror on board when a pirate ship appears on the horizon. The fight is bloody, but the result is never in doubt. Then the victorious pirate chief, Bulla, offers the beaten men a cruel choice: join us, or die.
an older lead character would've been better

Love Simon Scarrow. Hate this book.
Read well. Story so annoying. SPOILER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 17 year old street rat in charge of a pirate fleet after 3-6months at sea. Besting grizzled Roman veterans in one on one combat repeatedly. Had to stop. Couldn’t take it anymore.
