"Lust, deceit, sexuality, the supernatural. The Olympias is an often dark, yet thought-provoking tale revealing what it takes - and what it means - to change the world." Middle-class Henry befriends a street urchin, William, and the boys grow up to fight a war in South Africa. While Henry suffers a desperately unhappy marriage, William thrives, and their lives take unexpected turns. Singled out by the ghost of a dead soldier, Henry becomes a player in Fate's unalterable script. He can see things no one else can; a supernatural force protects him; he goes to war in France, and William follows dutifully. On a secret mission into German territory, Henry has to challenge Fate, and decide what his special gift is worth. "Everyone in Henry's life, everyone who had ever drawn breath, was currency in Fate's chaos." ***Warning*** Contains vulgar language and explicit sex.
