Orion—more than human, less than a god, cast away on the seas of Time to do battle among the godlike Creators for the future of mankind. Now the eternal warrior finds himself separated from his great love, Anya, and marooned in Macedonia under the reign of Phillip—fighting alongside the young Alexander the Great, and at the mercy of a Queen Olympias who is far more than she seems.

Praise for the Orion Saga

"Nonstop action and mind-bending concepts combine to make Orion absolutely unforgettable. . . . Bova brings it to life on a canvas spread over time and space."
—Isaac Asimov

"Slambang SF adventure mingles with speculative theology in this gripping story of an immortal's hatred, a mortal's love, and a death-struggle that spans a million years."
—Spider Robinson on Orion

"Six-time Hugo Award winner Bova doesn't disappoint!"
—Los Angeles Daily News on Orion in the Dying Time

"Bova creates characters that come alive on the page. . . . It is perfectly paced so that the reader has trouble putting the book down."
