Sequel to tough and gritty time travel thriller Blood of Heroes . A team of time travelers goes back to the Battle of Marathon in ancient Greece to foil a plot by alien masquerading as gods and by evildoers from the future.

Jason Thanou is a time traveler with a past--and a burning mission. When the gods of ancient Greece proved to be not only monstrously real, but totally alien--and poised to dominate humanity forever--Jason took care of the situation, at least in Minoan Crete. Now he's got what looks like a normal assignment: to lead a time traveling expedition of scholars to the battle of Marathon and record for the benefit of future historians the magnificent stand of Greece's hoplite warriors against Persian invaders.

But the Olympians are not done with their attempt to dominate humanity. Now the god Pan is afoot in Greece-a creature who may have the power to turn ancient Athens away from her budding democracy and toward a corrupt future on an Earth dominated by twisted humans and evil alien forces. But not if Jason can discover Pan's secret, thwart a conspiracy that stretches for millennia--and save the birthplace of democracy from the corruption of the gods.

A fun read with an interesting take on Greek history and mythology. Readers interested in either of these subjects should thoroughly enjoy it. The action is good, especially the perspective of being in a phalanx at Marathon. That episode alone is worth the time to read the book.
