NetGalley - Amanda B.
Truth be told, I had totally forgotten what this book was about by the time I finally started reading it. BUT I'M SO GLAD THAT I DID! I zoomed through this book and all I could think was that it sounded so much like Alexander the Great and that it sounded so real. When I re-read the book blurb and realized that's exactly what Guild intended I was blown away. Guild does an amazing job weaving fiction and history to create a story so dramatic but also completely believable! This book was full of war, strategy, monarchy issues, family ties and the crazy that surrounds them, romance, and honestly the book was just full of fantastic writing. This book has made me a complete fan of Nicholas Guild and I can't wait to read his other books! I can't recommend this book enough!
