97 years since the death of Alexander the Great, 3 descendants of his generals are nearly of age to assume the thrones of their kingdoms who all share the common intent of conquering each other's territories and re-unify the Hellenic world. But when they learn of 7 mysterious yet powerful relics that once belonged to the gods, they find themselves across the ancient world pitted against each other and other unexpected foes. Unbeknownst to them, the gods are watching as all 3 of them are being set up to unleash a far greater threat that awaits them.


This is a historical/fiction shonen that I'm writing, which follows the lives of three young historical rulers and their fictional companions. The story will show of how their journey and conflicts influenced some of the results of historical accounts during the storyline (like the toppling of the rhodes colossus) and leading up to become the figures they were as history accounted once after the climax/epilogue concludes (ie: battle of raphia, battle of cynoscephalae, 2nd punic wars)

OR in short: It's the untold story of three historical figures from antiquity.


Any Questions or Suggestions?

I might write it like this:

100 years since the death of Alexander the Great, 3 descendants of his Generals are about to assume the throne of their kingdoms. They all share the common intent of conquering each others land and unifying the Hellenic world. When they learn of 7 mysterious yet powerful relics that once belonged to the gods, they find themselves across the ancient world pitted against each other and other unexpected foes. Unbeknownst to them, the gods are watching and setting them up to unleash a far greater threat that awaits them.

I like this story you have. Keep up the good work! Very unique!
