Another superb novel by Jo Walton I absolutely love this series that explores many science fictional themes using the culture of classical Athens the majority of the other SF novels about ancient Greek or Roman culture are really much fantasy than science fiction; see the recent Wolf's Empire Gladiator Walton manages to overcome the majority of the problems and creates despite the presence of gods a perfect science fiction series and of course that Socrates would've been an avid skier

Necessity the seuel to the acclaimed The Just City and The Philosopher Kings Jo Walton's tales of gods humans and what they have to learn from one anotherMore than sixty five years ago Pallas Athena founded the Just City on an island in the eastern Mediterranean placing it centuries before the Trojan War populating it with teachers and children from throughout human history and committing it to building a society based on the principles of.
