The Throne of Olympus is a modern-day reworking of the Greek mythological tales of Zeus and his battle against the Titans.

Set against the backdrop of true, world events, “Dallas” and “I Claudius” unite, resulting in a deeply engaging and richly entertaining experience. The protagonists in this passion-fuelled saga of our times are members of two rival banking dynasties – the Villon Family in Europe and the Ravenscroft Family in the U.S.A. – who are arch-enemies. But it was not always so. Around the mid-nineteenth century, both families were members of a secret cabal, whose long-term, covert goal was the establishment of a new world order that would involve the creation of a single economy, banking system and, in turn, a single government. While witnessing the disintegration of their tangled personal relationships, we follow their cunning and ruthless conspiracies over the ensuing decades right up to the present time, where Zane Ravenscroft, the character of Zeus, sets out to claim the throne and the ultimate prize of power. The story takes place in many exciting locations across the globe as we become immersed in an Olympian world of lust and greed, intrigue and murder, incest and patricide.          


Excerpt

Zane lies fully awake on the king size bed of his hotel suite; unable to fall asleep as the night’s proceedings were still churning over in his head. He was on such a high he almost felt like a god. There was no doubt now in his mind that his feet have been set firmly along the path of his destiny. He knew now that he was the one ordained to achieve everything that they have been striving and fighting for. The only thing that can prevent it from happening is their own stupidness, their own self destruction. The bad blood between the families was their greatest obstacle to overcome.
So Zane began thinking about ways of achieving this, ways without bloodshed, without a war.
“There has to be away,” he calls out in the darkness, thinking to himself that if there is away, he will have to find it, and if not, then he must be prepared to do what is necessary.
There was much planning for Zane to do.
