When Lysander and his barracks are sent to Taras, Italy, to protect a vital trading post threatened by a local uprising, he spies a statue of a figure wearing the Fire of Ares and sets out to discover his connection to the city, hoping to learn more of his mysterious heritage.

Excerpt/First Sentence(s):
One of the boys in the barracks coughed in his sleep. Lysander's head was heavy with dreams of battle - images of slaughter chasing each other through his brain. Ares, God of War, snatching men's lives by sword and spear.

A floorboard creaked.

Lysander shot out an arm, his eyes snapping open, and grabbed a thin wrist. He drew his dagger from beneath his rolled blanket.

Publisher Book Description:
The Spartan Quest series continues with Lysander's next adventure. After victory against the Persians, Lysander and the other young warriors from Sparta are weary from battle. But then a messenger brings news that Taras, a distant outpost of the Spartan empire, is under siege. Sparta is in danger of losing a vital trading port to a local uprising. Lysander and his barrack set sail immediately for southern Italy.

They quickly discover that the locals will not be easily beaten. In the heat of battle Lysander finds himself in front of the great statue in the main square, and is shocked to see that the figure is wearing the Fire of Ares. Is this Lysander's ancestor? He must find out his connection to this town and its people, and in so doing reveal more of his mysterious heritage, hidden from him for so long.
