Main character s freuent dreams about his impending death I found the
dreams b I want to root for Christian Cameron he gives a solid attempt at maintaining historicalb I want to root for Christian Cameron he gives a solid attempt at maintaining historical and he has picked a fine setting for this series Nevertheless his writing is sometimes rough could have used another editing attempt in parts and his characters are incredibly lacking All of the protagonist s underlings are interchangeable not only because of their names but because of their non existent personalities Kineas himself is a noble humble duty first can do no wrong sort of figure so there needs to be a good explanation for why he sets out on a massive boondoggle to go fight Alexander in the far reaches of the Persian Empire We don t get one we are merely expected to accept that he does this because he is in love and that for some reason the front of Alexander s war in the far reaches of the lands of the Massagetae is the front that matters If Kineas were a flawed or fleshed out character perhaps a rationale could manifest but this feels like a flimsy excuse for the protagonist and his warrior princess to wander the world and fight in battles Suspension of disbelief is lost in such circumstances Cameron wanted his battle with Zopyrion in the first book of the series and wanted wanted his battle with Zopyrion in the first book of the series and wanted second book to take place around modern day Samarkand so the protagonist could fight Alexander but did not lay the groundwork for this to make any sense Kineas and his companions are back Alexander the Great is smarting from his captain s defeat and vows to subdue the Eastern Scythians on the Sea of Grass Kineas and Srayanka his Western Scythian woman have vowed to aid their Eastern allies And so begins an epic trek across the Ancient WorldAgain the author captures the feel of the ancient world The distances involved are staggering Crossing from Crimea to the Caspian sea is an unbelievable journey Cameron captures the spirit of this trip the He River God and his adopted city of Olbia is now free once But his destiny will not allow him to enjoy the fruits of victory for long To the east Alexander is threatening to crush the Scythian hordes once and for all The Lady Srayanka of the Cruel Hands the Scythian warrior princess who spurned a king's love to be at Kineas's side is pledged. .
I hate it when the hero dies I think Cameron appreciates this reader
#s aversion for #aversion for hero fallen so he invests heavily in presenting it s inevitability I am curious as to the author s own religiosity it takes than just a mindset of fantasy to weave a tome so rich in spiritual intervention guiding the leader so conseuentiallyI challenge Cameron to try a tome on David son of Jesse conueror of Goliath of Gath I stumbled into this six book series by way
of one of my favorite recent fantasy series the Traitor Son Cycleone of my favorite recent fantasy series the Traitor Son Cycle Miles Cameron I noticed that for some unknown reason Cameron also wrote under the name of Christian Cameron and had a series set in the time of Alexander the GreatAs one who knows way too much about that Hellenistic time period and one who loved Cameron s previous work I was all in from the moment I started volume one Tyrant And as this is a connected series that really needs to be read in order to be appreciated this review is of all six books considered as a whole rather than a review of each book though parenthetical notes will be appended for eachThe story covers about 30 The Piper in the Wind years of ancient history ending in 301 BCE at the Battle of Ipsos Now ifou already know who won the Battle of Ipsos ou will be Battle of Ipsos Now if ou already know who won the Battle of Ipsos Prey you will be little too far ahead of the game for much of the suspense of the series which includes I just finished this book in a cafe with tears in my eyes The waitress looked at me strangely What a book what a series what an author I ve read at least a dozen of Christian s books now and such a great turn of phrase You are now my favorite author surpassing the great Bernard C Thankou Please keep writing Really enjoyable read the deeper Addicted to Womanhood Book One you get into the story theou want The detail on tactics is great and the ending leaves ou wanting of the same Highly recommended now for his next one This was not in my view as good as the first in the series The thing that spoilt it somewhat for me was the. Kineas must challenge the man he once worshipped in the second entry in the Tyrant seriesKineas the Athenian cavalry commander has come a long way since being dismissed from the army of Alexander and vengefully exiled by his own city Together his mercenary force and their Scythian allies have defeated a mighty Macedonian army at the Ford of
