Soldier of Arete (Soldier Series #2) - Gene Wolfe

World Fantasy Award nominee 1990.

Of all mortals, Latro was the least favoured – or the most.

The wound that had destroyed his memory had given him the ability to see the unseen: the world of the gods, the demi-gods and the fabulous.

Each day's events were entered on a scroll so that next morning he could know his friends, his rivals and have some understanding of what had gone before.

He had fought with Xerxes at Thermopylae and been driven from Athenian Greece. Now with his companions, Io the slave girl and Seven Lions the African Warrior, he was travelling among the Thracians and the Amazons, seeking both his future and his past.

Soldier of Arete is the sequel tuo Gene Wolfe's award-winning Soldier of the Mist.
