    • Assuming you read the blurb so you have an idea about what the novel is about I strongly recommend this as even a better starting point than Tyrant 1 since it deals with the children of the heroes there, takes place some 12-3 years later and all needed back-story appears, while the novel is more exciting, lighter in some ways, much more adventure oriented and without the sense of doom that pervaded the first duology; I would not say it's YA despite that the main heroes start at 12 (twin girl/boy [...]

    • It really is easy to write a review for Christian's books"Bloody GreatGo buy it".But if that's was all it took then why would we all bother doing this?None the less the statement is as accurate as can be, I have not read a single poorly phrased chapter, or paragraph the man has written.The period is very underwritten, so he has a chance to stand out and shine.I think his brilliance stems from his obvious Love of the period, he being a re-enactor as well as a writer, and I think that it's this re [...]

    • I don't know what made me pick up this book. I think I wanted some historical fiction and the inside cover story sounded good. It certainly didn't disappoint me, I did enjoy it immensely! I do wish I had started at the first of the series! I have a thing at starting a book with the first one! That being said, for starting in at the 3rd, I didn't feel like I had trully missed alot - the central characters being young and probably not part of the previous 2 book to any great extent. (I guess it's [...]

    • c2010: FWFTB: kingdom, betrayal, perilous, assassins, sanctuary. Absolutely stirling writing, pace and characterisation. From my point of view, I found it harder to connect to the twins as much as I did to Kineas. However, that is more of a content/plot issue than any for of criticism. Philokles the Spartan continues to play a large role! Recommended."But desperate men make poor choices.

    • Well written story with interesting young heroes but 1. the actual wars were so complex, it was impossible to follow what was happening in the big picture 2. I always go on about maps being essential to understand what is going on. This book actually included a map of the eastern Mediterranean but most of the places mentioned in the story were missing so it did not help.

    • Ok, this was a bit painful. Couple of times I got to the point that I wanted to stop reading the book and start with something else. I liked the setting, and some of the author's insights in the use of different military strategies were really great. I also liked the portrayal of the early Alexandrian society, with the hesitant adoption of some of the values of a Greek polis. What I didn't like were some of the characters, especially the female lead was more and more annoying. I do buy that wome [...]

    • Sin lugar a dudas la serie Tirano de Cameron es de las mejores que he leído en lo referente a novela histórica!

    • Definitely the weakest of the series so far, but worth a read having already read the first two.Strengths: The setting, during the wars of succession between Alexander the Greats companions is fascinating, and Cameron captures the instability of the times excellently. His action and battle scenes are also realistic and memorable, and well written rather than relying on shock and gore. The characterisation is generally strong, with Philokles and Stratokles particularly standing out as realistic a [...]

    • Es un muy buen libro, aunque cambia un poco de tono respecto a los libros anteriores. Aquí la historia transcurre en un mundo roto luego de la muerte de Alejandro Magno, pero no sólo eso, si no que además se centra en Sátiro y Melita, apenas unos niños cuando todo comienza.En ese sentido éste libro no me atrapó tanto como esperaba, porque es una trama más lenta y no pude interesarme por la trayectoria de los hijos de Kineas. Tal vez porque, a pesar de que son los "narradores", en sí só [...]

    • This book was a great find in the ship's library as I was sailing the Mediterranean Sea and I always like reading a book set where I am visiting. This is the first of Christian Cameron's Tyrant series I've read but it won't be the last. Well-paced, the plot is beautifully driven by the teen-aged brother and sister characters whose mother has been ruthlessly removed from her throne, causing them to flee for their lives. Their coming of age takes place in battles and brawls on their journey to the [...]

    • Quite a good book actually. The first two books in the series were good but I never found myself wondering when I was going to pick up the next one. I'm glad I continued to read on, though. Apart from all the historical novel side, which is great in itself, I especially love how Christian explores how two young children come to age while surrounded by warfare. As in the other books, Christian seems to be asking deeper questions than what the storyline apparently is telling us.

    • We see Kineas' twins as they grow up and have to face plots to take over their state.The politics of Alexander's heirs was very complicated and although Cameron tries to simplify it, you are never sure who is fighting who. But that is probably what it was like at the timeEnjoyable and fast moving

    • Great Historical StoryThis was a fabulous read with some great characters and a seriously great chase across deserts rivers and mountains. Loved the descriptions of the battles. Am looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

    • ¡Muy buen libro!. Los dos primeros de la serie tuvieron mucha más fantasía de la esperada con los sueños de Kineas. Sin embargo, este es ¡perfecto!. Me gusta mucho cómo se involucran personajes como Pitágoras o a los sofistas.

    • I was afraid this would be a Young Adult book, at first. And, without the main characters are in their teens, this is far from a YA book. Lots of action, lots of history. Lots of everything. An excellent book by an excellent author, who really knows his stuff

    • Simply the best writer in this genre period. My only issue is how hard to get these titles are. they should be much more available and read.

    • I've read the first three books of the Tyrant series, and this is the best one so far, mainly because he keeps the excitement going, which is what I read such books for.
